Samsung Galaxy S2 owners who are excited for an OS update can now install Android 5.0 Lollipop custom ROM.

The last yet official firmware update made available for the 2011 flagship smartphone from Samsung was Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, according to GSM Arena. However, because of XDA developers, the Samsung Galaxy S2 was able to receive custom Android firmware based on Google's latest mobile operating system.

The CodeRom is currently capable of running the boot animation for Android 5.0 Lolliop, but no further than that.

CodeRom has been reportedly ported via AT&T AOSP ROM, which is also in beta development stage, and hence the LollipopS2 team has invited the Android community to help them in compiling the ROM and getting it to the final working state with all apps and UI in place.

Currently, there seems to be some issue with the ROM's stock CM11 kernel that requires debugging and hence those who wish to contribute their resources and knowledge towards further development of this fascinating Lollipop ROM can post their feedback as well as upload files using the XDA forum thread here.
