HTC Explorer gets Android 5.0 Lollipop update via CyanogenMod 12
The HTC Explorer is old and really lower end device for now, but it can still bring you the taste of latest Google’s Lollipop. This phone features a beautiful pebble-like design and it does not tease when you come about weight. Still, you can find some user using this phone. Even surprisingly there is an unofficial HTC Explorer Android 5.0 Lollipop build available as CyanogenMod 12.
Hardworking guys over XDA produced this awesome custom ROM, as we expected. But we can fairly expect that it will be not stable for a daily drive, as it is in initial stages. But it is very functional. There are just three features not working for now and we hope the developer will iron these bugs too soon in future, GSM, camera and video playback.
If you are itching to take a taste of this delicious Lollipop ROM, use a Lollipop-compatible recovery of kirmaniarslan. Flash the ROM in recovery mode and keep in mind that the first boot can take time, it can up to half an hour. So before starting the installation, prepare some pieces of bread that you can eat while spending on time with installation.
