CyanogenMod Installer pulled from Google Play

CyanogenMod logoWe know that when it comes to installing custom ROMs on your Android device is not easy, especially if you’re new to all of this, which is why the CyanogenMod Installer was such a great idea, especially when it was launched on the Google Play store for everyone to download! Unfortunately it seems that the app might have violated some terms and has since been voluntarily removed from Google Play. According to the official CyanogenMod blog, this involved one particular function within the app which was related to sideloading apps which could potentially void warranties of devices.

Based on the feedback given from the Google Play team, they agreed that while the app was harmless and did not actually violate their Terms of Service (it did violate developer terms), it still “encourages users to void their warranty” and would not be allowed to remain in the store. It is unclear if the Cyanogen Inc. will find a way around this issue, but for now if you want to get your hands on the installer, they have revealed that they will be submitting their app to both the Amazon and Samsung stores.
