  1. Buenas Noches. No es asi tan fácil. Si tengo JB 4.1.2 no puedo instalar de una el LINEAGE 16. Saca error de una. Empezando que para instalarlo y que funciones en un S2 tuve que instalar un TWRP especial que colocaron, despues instalar desde ese TWRP un archivo que hacia la paritcion para poder instalarlo. Al hacer eso sacaba error pero el explica que es ir a ola carpeta temp y volver a instalar ese archivo que hace la particion. Despues de eso si instalar el LINEAGE 16 para S2 y las gapss si querias.
    Ahora para eel ACE 2 tiene que haber unos archivos paraecidos y aqui en esta explicación no estan. Asi como dices nunca podran instalarlo en el ace 2. He buscado en muchas paginas y nada. Hay una que si proporciona un kernel y una partición. Pero no lo explican. Diccen que instalen la ROM y despues el kernel. No entiendo como puden decir eso si para lineage 16 en el ace 2 debe haber una nueva reparrticion asi como el procedimiento del S2. Ojala alguien tenga una pagina o video donde si expliquen claramente la instalación en el samsung galaxy ACE 2.
    Y una pregunta: Es para todas las variantes del ACE 2?
