Just over a year ago on these pages we reported the arrival of Android 11 on Samsung’s Galaxy S2. Well, the community has fallen back on it and a developer managed to bring the new Android 12 from Google on the smartphone 11 years ago.
In this case, the developer RINandO managed to bring LineageOS 19.0, which is based on Android 12, on the international variant of the historian (and now obsolete) smartphone of the Korean giant.
Obviously, while we were able to complete what we could all define as a business, the user had to compromise. LineageOS 10.0 on Galaxy S2 runs smoothly and most hardware components (such as WiFi, Bluetooth and audio output) are perfectly functional.
In the list of modules that do not work or cause problems there is the one related to recording video with the camera, but also the support microG and the Live Display.
The project is still in the process of becoming, and can be followed directly through the dedicated thread on the XDA forum.
Just a few days ago on these pages we showed Android 12 perfectly worked on Samsung Galaxy S3, a smartphone launched ten years ago. All this is added in a context that sees Samsung now ready to announce the Galaxy S22.
