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. There are still a number of bugs that need to be worked out (as this version is unfinished), but the ROM looks to be functional enough for testing purposes. As with any experimental ROM though, there can be unforeseen issues that pop up, so keep this in mind before flashing.
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.

Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
