Android 5.0 Lollipop has been hailed by many as one of the most refined versions of Google’s OS. The OS revision started rolling out to devices last month, with the Nexus family having already been updated and Motorola and Samsung giving indications of a potential Android 5.0 update to select devices as well. Not only this, but unofficial builds have also been popping up everywhere, such as on Android One devices and on the HTC Explorer. And the ball isn’t even close to stopping here as two more devices, the Motorola Droid 4 and RAZR, have also received unofficial Android 5.0 builds as well.

This comes in the form of unofficial builds of CM12, originally developed just for the Droid 4 by XDA Senior Member stargo. The list of working functions includes phone calls, mobile data, WiFi and WiFi tethering, and GPS. As this is still a pre-alpha test build however, pretty much everything else remains not working, including the camera app, reboot to recovery, data encryption and more.

Courtsey of XDA Senior Member ktimque, this build can now also run on the Droid RAZR. However, as it uses the builds developed by stargo, Droid RAZR owners must make sure to flash the appropriate files for the Droid RAZR and not for the Droid 4. Additionally, XDA Recognized Developer dhacker29 provides the Gapps for these builds which are available for download as well.

If you would like to check these builds out, make your way over to the Unofficial CM12 thread for the Droid 4 and the Droid RAZR.
