Hello custom Android ROMs: CyanogenMod installer hits Google Play Store

It just got a little bit easier to put custom ROM software on certain Android phones: The CyanogenMod (CM) installer app is now available in the Google Play Store. Only certain devices are currently supported and you’ll need a Windows PC (for now) to complete the process, but the app will root your Android device if needed and install the CM ROM. Without this “one touch” install, the process is a bit arcane, requiring the Android SDK, specific terminal commands and various downloads. CyanogenMod raised $7 million earlier this year to turn the custom ROM effort into a full-fledged company. Oppo also sells an edition of its N1 phone with CM preinstalled.
