CyanogenMod brings Marshmallow goodness to the five year old Galaxy S II

Galaxy S II - Marshmallow

The #Samsung #GalaxySII was released in February 2011 as most mobile fans will be aware. But the smartphone now remains in the annals of the mobile industry as the company gears up to release the 7th iteration of the Galaxy S flagship later this month. However, the developers at CyanogenMod don’t think the device should be forgotten and have introduced a CyanogenMod 13 (Android 6.0) based nightly for the smartphone.

This will breathe a new life onto the device, although the users are expected to manually update the device. Also we must remember that this is merely a nightly build right now, which makes it prone to bugs and other glitches, so it might not be a very good idea to use this as your daily driver. But if you have an aging Galaxy S II lying around at home, now is the time to install the ROM on the device and see how it performs on five year old hardware.

Most of Marshmallow’s features might not function correctly owing to the hardware restraints, but the CyanogenMod customizations should deal with most of them. You can find more details at the source link below.
