Samsung Galaxy Grand might be a mid range Android powered smartphone, but you can still take full advantage of your phone. How? Well, thanks to those of xda-developers you can now install Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OS on your own Galaxy Grand. Of course there is no OTA released, but if you are willing to flash the new CM12 custom ROM, you can experience without problems the latest build of Android OS, on your own Grand.

CM12 for Galaxy Grand is available from awhile now, though the stable version has just been released. Now, this is an unofficial port of CM 12 that’s based on new Android 5.0.2 Lollipop build – which was launched for the Google Nexus 7. So, still we don’t have the Nightly build of CM12 as this ROM isn’t provided by the CM team but by those of xda-developers.

As already pointed out, if you choose to download this update, then you can install Android 5.0.2 Lollipop firmware on your Samsung Galaxy Grand. Of course you will not receive the stock Lollipop UI as the CM12 software will bring its own looks and features, but you will still be able to run and enjoy a stable and smooth Android 5.0.2 experience. The ROM also brings extra features that cannot be found on the default version of Android OS; these features can be anytime used for tweaking the performances of your Galaxy Grand – you can improve the speeds, upgrade battery life and power up general performances with ease.

In case you are considering in updating your Samsung Galaxy Grand to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OS with CM12 custom ROM, then first of all, root your smartphone and install a custom recovery image into its system – use the latest version of CWM or TWRP recovery in order to ease your work.
