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(s goog) 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(s msft) 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.

  1. The app is great, I installed CyanogenMod on my S3 two days ago and cleaned the rubbish touchWiz thing. I know nothing about playing with a smartphone but the app makes it like installing a printer on your home printer, few minutes of very easy steps and you are done. ByeBye Samsung TouchWiz and I will do the same with my other phone, S4 Mini once the app will be compatible with it. Thanks CyanogenMod ppl, you are awesome….
