Samsung Galaxy S II receives an update for Android 11. Unofficially

You may still remember the Samsung Galaxy S II – it was released in early 2011 and will soon celebrate its tenth birthday. But today it is probably no longer used by anyone or is it different?

At least a few developers from the XDA community still use it. The team managed to bring the latest Android 11 operating system for this prehistoric mobile phone. Specifically, this is an unofficial version of Lineage 18.1, which is built on pure Android 11.

Samsung Galaxy S II with Android 11

Samsung Galaxy S2 came on the market with a small 4.3 ″ Super AMOLED Plus display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, 1 GB RAM, dual-core Exynos 4210 Dual processor, 8 MP rear and 2 MP front sensor and 1650 mAh battery.

The mentioned version will work for you if you have a model GT-I9100. While most basic features like Wi-Fi, cameras, or audio go, there are a few that don’t work yet. The modem doesn’t work best – you can answer calls, but you can’t make them, GPS, FM radio and a few others don’t work yet.

This firmware is currently for testing purposes only and should not be used for daily use. Even though we think that almost no one uses this smartphone every day. Maybe it’s just comfortable in the drawer, and if you happen to get bored over Christmas, you can try to install Android 11 in it.

If you still decide to try this firmware, you should have at least some experience with installing custom ROMs. Otherwise, you may malfunction the device.
