    update Droid Mini OS to Lollipop

    Is downloading a "custom ROM" to a PC, and using it to update the Droid Mini OS a legit thing? I only just read about it, and it seems doable. I wouldn't count it as a huge loss if the attempt fails.

    Because I got the phone already, and it needs the OS updated to use some modern apps. (I favor phones that fit in a shirt pocket)
    I see now there's a Android OS sub-forum, so I'll look it over.

    Try this....

    You might have better luck at the internet site XD-developers.com. They specialize in phone modifications/hacks. Keep in mind that most applications designed today are incompatible with the older Android versions. Best wishes.

    Thank you. I noticed them right off. They seem very much into the phone mods, and probably have everything covered, but I thought I should touch base here to see if plain folks like me are actually doing any of this sort of thing, or even need to. If it weren't for the high price tag, a Z Flip 4 would more than handle my wishes for a modern foldable phone.

    In the end, I got my app the easy way, with a base model Android tablet from Walmart. I'll probably still try the Droid Mini update, if only satisfy my curiosity, and see if it really does gain improved battery charge usage.
