The Galaxy S II i9100G Doesn’t Like Being Left Out of the Party
For many of you, the Jelly Bean-flavored tsunami sweeping over the forums has already consumed your device. However, there are still many devices out there that have yet to be shown the tasty goodness that is Android 4.1. The users of the Samsung Galaxy SII, GT-i9100G have been saved thanks to the fantastic work of XDA Elite Recognized Developer codeworkx.
For those of you who are not aware, codeworkx is a member of Team Hacksung, an active development team producing a number of high grade ports and ROMs made available both here on XDA and on their website.
As such, codeworkx has managed to bring not just Jelly Bean, but a preliminary build of CyanogenMod 10.

If you’re a user looking to test this or a developer looking to contribute to ROM development, head on over to the original thread and give this a go.

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
