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 itsĀ N1 phone with CM preinstalled.
