CM12.1S ROM for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100! [Android 5.1]

Looking for a good Android 5.1 Lollipop ROM for your Galaxy S2 GT-i9100?

Check out the CM12.1S ROM, which is a hybrid of CM12S ROM from OnePlus One and latest Android 5.1.

This ROM features latest CyanogenMod CM12.1 Android 5.1 features along with OnePlus One camera, AudioFX, Screencast (screen recording app), and Hexo theme. I’ve tried many of the latest CM12.1 and Android 5.1/5.1.1 ROMs in the past week but found this ROM to be most stable with everything working out of the box except Netflix video playback.  Also, if you want to know about all of the latest CM12.1 ROM features, check out this video.

CM12 ROM Alpha for Galaxy S2! [Android 5.0 Lollipop]

For those of you wondering where is Android 5.0 Lollipop for Galaxy S2 smartphones, I have some good and bad news.

The good news is that there are working versions of CM12 ROM alpha, which will give you the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The bad news is that these ROMs are still in “alpha” stages, meaning there are many bugs.  However, if you do want to try out the Android 5.0 Lollipop today, you can make a backup ROM, try Lollipop, then restore your previous ROM.
