i9100 LineageOS 11.0 - ABANDONED

LineageOS (as well as CM did until December 2016) still maintains the cm11.0 / 4.4.4 sources to keep pace with 'The Android Security Bulletin' (ASB).
https://source.android.com/security/bulletin/index.html.
Patches for CVE security issues are released at least once a month to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) repository.
Patches for Android 4.4.4 are not provided by ASB anymore.
This means, security wise Android 4.4.4 is formally dead.
Nevertheless there are a few enthusiasts, still backporting security patches from recent Android versions to 4.4.4.
You should know, such backports are no formal ASB security patches.
Therefore the security patch level of this ROM is named: Unofficial Security Backport "December 2019".


Despite of implementing these security patches by the LineageOS team to its own repository https://github.com/LineageOS, LineageOS does not provide cm11 builds anymore.

Since I personally like 4.4.4. more than later versions, I build it myself unofficially and would like to share it.
The build is made from LineageOS "Branch: cm-11.0" PLUS ASB security patches, even if they are not yet approved by LineageOS.

The main goal of this ROM is to provide up to date builds in terms of ASB security patches, not development.

Thanks for the good work
Just wanted to note that the bugs here are the same as slimsaber ROM bugs.
Highlights:
1- pixelated YouTube videos.
2- no 480p video quality in YouTube videos
3- no Xposed support.

This ROM has brought my S2 back to real usability. I have tried many nougat ROMs with varying results but all were so laggy and unresponsive. This is like a breath of fresh air.

Exactly
Older is always better, because the systems in newer android versions use too much ram, and leave you with less than 25% of free ram(in our case), if you went back to cm10 or cm9, your phone will get smoother, the problem is that those versions are so old now and almost unsupported by apps and games of today, so you are forced to upgrade your phone or upgrade your android.

yes, I have tried many new 7.x roms and the s2 becomes very very very slow and laggy (strange because with an old motorola moto g first edition, android 7.x porting are very fast). nowadays the only use for a s2 is that as mediaplayer (kodi, acetream, live stram player etc.) with mhl cable... pity that one is forced to used stock or stock modified rom...
