Unofficially update your Android smartphone!

Since Google announced the arrival of the stable version of Android 12 and deposited the source code on AOSP, the DIY party is underway here at XDA. But unless you have a current generation device like the OnePlus 9/9 Pro or the Samsung Galaxy S21, chances are you will have to wait a few months for your OEM to send the latest dessert to your phone.

But of course, this is XDA, which is home to the largest community collection of custom ROMs and plenty of other aftermarket developments. While OEMs are limited by several factors that limit their ability to deliver a timely update, members of our community can do a fantastic job giving fellow enthusiasts a chance to try the latest version of Android on. their phones, now! Certainly the early work of developers working with inadequate (and often non-existent) official resources cannot provide us with bug-free ROMs. But they do highlight how groups of like-minded individuals can achieve something great when they all put their minds to it.

With the large number of unofficial versions of custom ROMs based on Android 12, we thought it would be a good idea to create an index of devices that have Android 12 ports for them. Note that these are unofficial versions and will most likely contain bugs. Please read the first posts of each linked thread so you know the current version status before flashing it to your phone.

To note: In this article, we will only provide a link to the first Android 12 Custom ROM that we come across for a particular device. It doesn’t serve as an endorsement of that particular build, nor are we suggesting that the work of others should be ignored. We are limiting our links to prevent this article from getting too long. Please visit the XDA forums for your device to see if there are other, possibly more complete, versions available.
