Many of us here in the west will never see the Micromax Yureka. But it’s Cyanogen’s newest smartphone. And it’s what actually caused some issues with Cyanogen and OnePlus over the last month or so. Since Cyanogen’s contract with Micromax says that Micromax gets the exclusive on devices with Cyanogen OS on them in India. Which led OnePlus to having to create  their own ROM sooner. So they could keep selling in India.

Now that the Micromax Yureka is available in India. We are seeing more and more support for the device. And now Team Win Recovery Project has released their custom recovery for the newest Cyanogen smartphone. So now if you’re looking to flash another ROM on your Micromax Yureka, you can. And it’s very simple with TWRP recovery installed. Of course, make sure you do a NANDROID backup before attempting to flash anything on your device, and as always Android Headlines is not responsible for any damage caused to your device.

TWRP is an after-market custom recovery that is available for most phones. Unlike CWM Recovery – until recently –  it is touch screen. With TWRP, you are able to flash new ROMs, zips, and more. As well as create NANDROID backups and restore them as well. TWRP even has an app in the Play Store so that you can create a backup without rebooting your phone. Which is actually a really cool feature. There’s a ton of other nifty features in TWRP as well that will catch the common flasher’s eye. If you haven’t used TWRP before, I’m not sure where you’ve been.

So if you have a Micromax Yureka, you can now go ahead and root and install TWRP and get to flashing. How many of you are enjoying the Micromax Yureka smartphone? Be sure to let us know in the comments down below.
