CyanogenMod is probably one of the most popular ROMs out there. This past weekend, they began rolling out the M6 release of CyanogenMod 11. Which is available for a slew of devices, but today we are going to show you how to do it for the LG G2. Since that’s the device that I have with me right now. It’s actually quite simple to flash, and install CyanogenMod 11. Before we get started, it’s important that you are rooted and have a custom recovery.
How to flash CyanogenMod 11
- Make sure you download the proper version of CyanogenMod from their website
- Also download the correct, and most up to date GApps package
- Place both files onto your LG G2
- Now reboot into recovery (power off the device, then press power + volume down together until the LG logo pops up. Let go for a second, then press them again)
- Once you’re in recovery, be sure to make a nandroid backup, just in case something happens.
- Now make sure you do a factory reset
- Next, wipe the cache and dalvik
- Now flash the CM and Gapps file
- Once that’s complete, reboot and you’re complete. (Note: You can do steps 6 & 7 after step 8 as well, as I did in the video down below).
- It may take a bit longer to reboot than normal due to your device rebuilding the cache and dalvik.
For those interested, we have a video down below showing you how to flash a custom ROM.
