In a move sure to bring CyanogenMod to more users, the team have released a one-click installer to put its custom firmware on compatible Android devices. Installation seems fairly simple, with users needing a compatible device, Windows PC and a USB cable. The companion app — for Windows only, at this stage —
will be available later todayis now available to download.
Steve Kondik, co-founder of CyanogenMod, said:
Our goal for the installer has always been to allow more users to experience the benefits of CyanogenMod, without the hassles of technical guides and concerns associated with the process.
More than 8 million users of CyanogenMod can’t be wrong, no doubt fans of the extension to Android that the popular custom ROM brings. Cyanogen has a simple goal, to become the third-most popular operating system behind Android and iOS, and we wish them all the best with this. Previously, installation of CyanogenMod wasn’t the most straight-forward of tasks for novice users, but with the One Click installer and simple instructions, the custom ROM could certainly expand its reach exponentially.
Have you tried CyanogenMod? If you haven’t, does this new, easier process make you more inclined to give it a try?
