Does anyone think our phone will be able to run Android L? Or is it time to retire this phone and buy a new one?

Who knows. So far every update has been brought to the S2 from the devs.

But....the s2 is quite dated now. If you can get a new phone, I would. You'll be amazed. Lol

The Moto X and N5 are great, and cheap. If buying outright that is.

I am positive that our phone will receive Android L (although it may have to wait until its pushed into AOSP). There are numerous devs providing wide range of different Roms for our device. I find it extremely unlikely that all devs will discontinue support for a device whose hardware can support Android L. When KitKat was released a Cyanogenmod 11 ROM was made available in less than a week.

If you wish to upgrade, dev support should not be one of the reasons you choose to do so.

That is a link to a thread i started that should help endure the time before we get an Android L ROM.

I'm sure that we'll get it at some point in time.

Yeah I agree. But I don't think we will until its available in AOSP. Porting the preview images from the Nexus 5 to the Nexus 4 hasn't been completed yet which doesn't give me much hope for our Hercules receiving a port from the Nexus 5 images. Then again this is a massive update so porting is bound to take longer than it did for KitKat.

I'm dying to get my hands on Android L though .-.
