CyanogenMod Installer – Explained!

CyanogenMod has been in the news quite a bit lately with their recent developments. One of those major developments was the announcement of a new installer that makes it extremely easy to install CyanogenMod on your device. While the installer is not the one-click solution everyone had in mind, it does automate the entire process and make it much easier than the current procedure. Right now in order to install CyanogenMod you have to root your device, install a custom recovery, and flash CyanogenMod along with a gapps package. While it doesn’t seem like much, this process can be quite scary the first time you do it with many opportunities to damage your device. Unless you are experienced in the procedure, installing CyanogenMod can take up a good chunk of time. The new installer does all the heavy lifting for you though. tested the installer on a Nexus 7 during their latest Hangout On Air and the entire process took only about 10 minutes. The CyanogenMod team is currently beta-testing the application with a select group of beta testers and they hope to have a public release fairly soon.

Do you think that this new installer might bring on even more CyanogenMod users?
