How to Install CyanogenMod ROMs on Android without Rooting

June . Posted by to Android Topic

It's fairly common to see unwanted or unknown apps are shipped with your phone in default when you get a new Android device, which makes the overall experience really bad. To make things even worse, it's very hard to remove those apps as a beginning user. You have to master some technical skills to get them deleted in the past a few years. But now, you can easily get that with the help of CyanogenMod, the best free and clean operating system based on Android mobile platform.

You don't need to root or unlock your Android device before installing the package, which makes its much more user friendly than other ROMs. And that's the reason why I recommend CyanogenMod here.

Why Use CyanogenMod?

The core ideas are the same throughout our releases:

 Secure: If you install Cyanogenmod, it's really secure when browsing, using emails, making purchases.

 Light footprint: It is a safe, light footprint and bloat-free way to install a custom CyanogenMod.

 Bloat-free: Using CM 10 on Android phone will run great better then the bloatware phone brings out.

 Customizable, Open: It is a customizable and open source, user friendly. CyanogenMod can be customized into anything.
