So we won’t judge you if you don’t remember the Samsung Galaxy S – that’s a 6-year old device right there, and it shouldn’t be anywhere near your hands at this moment. But there might just be reason to bring out that old smartphone from its dusty box, as an unofficial build of OmniROM might just tempt you with Marshmallow flavors.

Just so you remember, the Galaxy S (i9000) — Samsung‘s first of the famed Galaxy S series — is a 4-inch smartphone powered by a 1Ghz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, supported by 512MB RAM and a PowerVR SGX540 graphics chip. It gave you HSPA data connection speeds and ended its life officially with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. You can clearly see that this device has seen better days.


But XDA member “sooti” gives you another reason to break out your Galaxy S, maybe for one last time as the developer has put together a build made from OmniROM foundations (albeit unofficial) to bring Android 6.0 to the 6-year old device. It’s still in alpha stages, so expect bugs and non-working features here and there.

But from what is there now, it somehow feels great that even an old device can run Android Marshmallow. If you want to get with this project, follow the official XDA thread here, with instructions on how to flash this on to your old Samsung Galaxy S.
