for the context, i had some old phone that was running on android gingerbread 2.3.6 for a while
i discovered a few days ago that it was actually possible to change the version so i could actually use it for stuff (since 2.3.6 is pretty old, almost no apps are compatible)
so after quite an adventure, i managed to get android nougat on it. the rom looks fine so far, except for some bits in spanish but they don't bother me.
i went and tried to install some apps but they were still incompatible, i checked the version in the settings and it was still in 2.3.6
shouldn't it be 7.0 or something like that?
for info the rom is "nougat ME V3.1", the kernel is CM7 v3.0 and i rooted it prior to installing the rom.
