cyanogenmodWhen it comes to flashing custom ROMs onto Android phones, safe to say it is not something that the not-so tech savvy should attempt as a mistake could result in you bricking your brand new phone. Sure, one could go and do their homework and follow instructions, but not everyone is so tech savvy which is why the folks at Cyanogen Inc. released the CyanogenMod Installer app onto the Play store before it was pulled. Basically what the installer did was to help users install a custom ROM like CyanogenMod on their phone in a few easy steps, as opposed to the traditional method which required multiple steps and could sometimes be a lengthy process.

In any case the good news is that for those running Mac computers, a beta version of the CyanogenMod Installer has made its way onto the Mac. Like we said this is currently a beta version so there might be some kinks left to work out, but should otherwise prove to be quite functional. For those interested in getting their hands on the installer, head on over to the CyanogenMod Mac community page and follow the instructions which has been listed under the “About this community” section where you will find links to the download and a list of devices that are currently supported by the installer.
