This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on September 19, 2020) follows:

The development of Android 11 has been steady so far but OEMs are still working tirelessly to provide the latest OS update to their eligible devices as soon as possible.

However, there are devices that will not get the latest OS update officially simply because the respective OEMs have dropped the software update support.

Android-11-Easter-Egg

Xiaomi Mi A2, Pocophone F1 (also known as Poco F1 in India), and Nokia 6.1 Plus are among the many devices that might not get upgraded to Android 11. Not officially at least.

Nevertheless, custom ROMs like Potato Open Sauce Project (POSP) and ReloadedOS are already offering Android 11 support albeit unofficially.

Senior XDA Developers members, kenny3fcb, Raghu varma, and raj_jdja, have developed the Android 11-based POSP custom ROMs for a bunch of devices.

OnePlus-6-Android-11-POSP

The Mi A2 gets the unofficial POSP (Android 11) custom ROM from kenny3fcb but the ROM is still in testing phase meaning it might be full of bugs.

Raghu varma has developed the Nokia 6.1 Plus POSP (Android 11) custom ROM with version 11.0.0_r3 and it also brings along the September security patch.

OnePlus 6 gets the Android 11-based POSP custom ROM from raj_jdja but there are several bugs that the developer has specifically listed.

Also, recognized XDA Developers member, riteshsaxena, has brought the Android 11-based ReloadedOS custom ROM to the Poco F1.

While these custom ROMs are still in the early stages of development, it is good to see that modders and developers are already working on providing Android 11 support to older devices.

So, if you are into custom ROMs and own one of these devices then be sure to check out the Android 11-based POSP and ReloadedOS custom ROMs.
