7-Year Old Samsung Galaxy S i9000 Is Being Treated To LineageOS 14.1
Samsung had released the first iteration of it's widely popular Galaxy S series in the form of the Galaxy S i9000 seven years ago in 2010. The device was powered by Android Eclair 2.1 out of the box and was subsequently upgraded to Android Froyo and Gingerbread later on.
Post Gingerbread, Samsung dropped support for the Galaxy S in terms of software updates. However that hasn't stopped the phone from running the latest Android releases. After the device manufacturer calls off software updates for one of it's devices, Android communities such as the XDA-Developers are there to ensure that the device doesn't miss out on newest Android offerings. After getting the Gingerbread update officially, the developers at XDA have had ported Android Honeycomb, Icecream Sandwich, Jellybean, KitKat, Lollipop and Marshmallow to the legendary device.
XDA senior member xc-racer99 has ensured the same with Android Nougat now. A build of LineageOS 14.1, based on Nougat 7.1, is now out for testing. In fact, a CM 14.1 and an AOSP build of Nougat is also available for the device and it only contains minor bugs like the crashing of the inbuilt CM file manager. We can thus expect that the LineageOS build won't be full of bugs, since the LineageOS build is based on CM sources only.
In case you have a Galaxy S dugged in somewhere, then this is just the right time to pull it out and give Nougat a shot on it. You can download the Nougat build from here.
