    How to upgrade the Android version?

    Hello, people.
    An old Motorola Droid X2, Android version 2.3.5, smartphone,
    now has no active carrier account, no active phone number.
    Settings > About phone > System updates says:
    "Check for update is not available at this time. Try again later."
    It IS connected to my home wifi.
    HOW can I upgrade the Android version to something newer, at least version 4?
    Why?
    Because I want to use this phone ONLY for the Google "Find my phone" app,
    and on my PC, in my Google account, it IS in my Google account.
    That app apparently does Not require that the phone have a phone number,
    but it was introduced during Android 4, so THAT's the minimum Android version needed.
    Thanks.

    You'd need to install a custom rom. A quick search seems to indicate that cyanogenmod 9 would work on it, and that it would get you to version 4. There may be other options, by which I mean other roms. Use your favorite search engine to find out what your options are, and once you decide on which one you want to use, just follow the instructions for rooting and installing it.

    The internet site XDA_Developers would be a good site to search for help. Best wishes.
