CyanogenMod Installer Live On Google Play, Brings One-Click ROM Installation

CyanogenMod Installer - Android Apps on Google Play

Of you’ve ever tried to install a custom ROM on your Android device, then you know the trials and tribulations of the process. If all goes well, you could have a working ROM in a half hour; if not, you could have a pretty expensive paperweight on your hands. That’s all about to change, thanks to Cyanogen Inc.

Cyanogen Inc. has released the CyanogenMod Installer today, allowing most Android owners to flash their devices with the newest version of CyanogenMod, in a one-step process. The app will require a bit of PC software as well, which should be going live any time now. All you will have to do is hook up your phone to PC through a USB cable, fire up the PC program and click the start button. Make sure you back up your device first though, as the process will wipe all data from your phone.
