CyanogenMod Installer now available for Mac OSX in beta form


CyanogenMod Installer iPhone

Cyanogen Inc. changed the game when they announced the release of the user-friendly CyanogenMod Installer. A desktop application that allowed for the quick and easy installation of the CyanogenMod custom ROM, it was a godsend for those looking to root their Android devices but didn’t want to risk bricking said device because of lack of know-how, or otherwise.

For many, this easy to use installer was a privilege reserved only for those with Windows-based PCs but today, all of  that changes with the official beta release of CyanogenMod Installer for Mac OSX. Simply connect your compatible device (full list linked below) and the CM Installer handles the rest for you. Keep in mind that in most cases, this will void your Android device’s warranty, and in all case wipe all your data clean.

For more info on the CyanogenMod Installer, hit up their Wiki page here where you can find a FAQ, as well as a full list of compatible devices. Just be careful, it is still in beta after all.

  3. Doesn’t work on verizon SGS4. I kinda hate you Verizon. :'(

    1. Like Weird Al sang: “I sued Verizon ’cause I get all depressed any time my cellphone is roaming!”

      1. Great song.

    2. why hate VZW? Hate Apple. it works perfectly fine in Windows. In fact, hate yourself for buying a junky mac.

  4. So did they do this right and a linux version is basically the same thing, or did they screw it up and not?

  5. I really like my spen features on my note 2 but with the installer making things easier than ever I may give this a shot.

  6. people still use Macs? Cute.

    1. welp, I have a custom Windows based PC gaming rig, and a 2012 non retina MBP, a nexus 7, and a motox. The most user friendly tech device I own is my MBP, followed at a distant 2nd by my moto x. the LEAST enjoyable to use electronic i own is my gaming rig, and the only reason i own it is for gaming, in fact….it boots right to steam big picture so i dont even have to interact with windows.

  7. In early November I flashed a bad rom to my HTC One. It paralyzed my touchscreen, and erased my custom recovery. It really sucked. It hasn’t worked until yesterday when I used the Cyanogenmod installer for Mac. I just installed the app, plugged in my phone, and the app did the rest. Worked great
