CyanogenMod Installer released for OS X, makes it even easier to install the custom Android ROM

Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 5.38.34 PMBack in November, the CyanogenMod team announced an interesting new project that allowed users to flash the team’s custom Android ROM in just a few clicks.  The app came with a catch, though. It was only available on Windows machines, leaving Mac users in the dark. Today, however, the CyanogenMod team has released its Installer application on Mac OS X.

CyanogenMod installer supports a long-list of devices, ranging from the HTC One and Galaxy S4 to the Nexus S and Galaxy S II. The process is very simple. First, simply join the CyanogenMod Installer for Mac beta group, download the actual app from Google+, connect a compatible Android device, and the Installer will handle most everything else. It’s important to note that the Installer will wipe all the data from your device, so be sure to back it up before beginning the process.

The CyanogenMod team has had a very successful time over the past few months, as it raised $22 million in funding in December in addition to releasing more devices that run the CyanogenMod ROM out of the box.

    Greetings. I am using this on a Mac mini and I tried this with a Nexus 7 2013 tablet. After I attached the tablet to the computer, I receive a message from CyanogenMod Installer: “Your firmware is not supported by this installer. Visit for manual install instructions.” Why is this and how do I fix this? Thank you for your attention to my question
