Install CyanogenMod on your Android Device with the CyanogenMod Installer

The CyanogenMod team has now released their newest app – Cyanogenmod Installer. This automates the process needed to install the custom ROM on your Android device. You also need software on your PC as well to get CM installed on your phone or tablet.

For your convenience, I have put together a video tutorial showing how to install CyanogenMod on your Android Device with the CyanogenMod Installer. Be sure to double check that your device is supported.

Supported Devices:

CyanogenMod PC Installer app:

CyanogenMod Installer Android app:

NOTE: This may void your warranty. Check the how to unroot section of my site to see if I have a tutorial to get back to stock on your phone. Or check over at XDA Forums. I am not responsible for anything that happens to your device.

How to install CyanogenMod with the CM Installer:

As stated by the CM team:
“Installing CyanogenMod has never been easier! Our interactive installation tool makes replacing your current Android operating system with CyanogenMod a breeze.”

    Hey Tim, I used the installer on my HTC ONE sprint, everything went fine but I don’t get phone signal or 3g, I’m only on 4g LTE here in las Vegas. Know a fix or some quick suggestions.

    You installed CM on your Galaxy S3 Sprint- do you know of any issues? It looks good, I used to have CM on my EVO 4G (original) and seeing your video makes me want to install it on my GS3 Sprint.

    Is there a way to remove this after it is installed?

    • Andre Woodson

      I used the installer on my Galaxy S4 and then wanted to see if I could uninstall CyanogenMod using one of QbKing77’s unroot videos that uses Odin and it did not work.

      • Rene Aponte

        I unrooted my sg3 from sprint using a video from QBKing77 on how to fix a brick mobile and was returned back to stock 4.3.

  • Jose P

    Norton keeps reading as a virus and doesnt let me install

  • Rene Aponte

    By the way QBKing77 the installer app is no longer in the play store….one much go to Cyanogenmod website and sideload it….

  • Robert Aguirre

    Do you know if there are any plans of the LG G2 joining the CM world?

  • Greg Porter

    I used the installer on a Sprint HTC One, and it never finishes completely and is missing the gaps (no Playstore) Does anyone have any suggestions to get it. It is kind of a bummer not being able to load all of the goodies that rooting and CM allows. I also had to keep turning on the debugging on the nag screen to even get as far as I did.

  • Dman Man

  • AsadMunster

  • Jimmy Barns

    The installer has been withdrawn. From Cyanogen website: “With the vulnerabilities disclosed in Stagefright, we are working towards revised builds for affected users. Until then, we have opted to disable further downloads of the installer.

    Users currently on installer releases are advised to disable automatic MMS downloads (this will not stop the issue, but does help address the most impacted attack vector).

    To fully protect yourself immediately, we encourage you to flash the community releases of 11.0 and 12.0 (if available) made on August 31st through September 2nd, 2015. Do note that this upgrade to community releases will require a data wipe and separate installation of Google applications.”
