Samsung Galaxy S II Tastes Marshmallow Thanks To Cyanogen Nightlies

By 01:50 Sat, 31 Jul 2021 Comments

Samsung dropped the support for Galaxy S II a long time ago and officially the phone is stuck on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (up from 2.3 Gingerbread) forever.

But the Galaxy S II is one of the most popular Samsung smartphones ever, and it has been seeing various third-party ROMs throughout the years. Cyanogen, the most popular Read-Only Memory (ROM) maker out there, has granted the Galaxy S II support for KitKat and Lollipop.

As of yesterday, the Cyanogen team released the first nightly build of CyanogenMod 13 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Being a nightly Read-Only Memory (ROM) means there will be bugs and the Operating System (OS) is probably not stable enough for everyday usage.

We are sure the fans still keeping their Galaxy S II units will be excited with the Marshmallow news. If you are interested in updating your Galaxy S II beyond Jelly Bean, Cyanogen is your best option correct now.
