How to Install CyanogenMod on the Oppo Find 5 ("find5")
This guide will walk you through the process of taking the Find 5 from stock to having a custom recovery image and the ability to flash the latest version of CyanogenMod.
Modifying or replacing your device's software may void your device's warranty, lead to data loss, hair loss, financial loss, privacy loss, security breaches, or other damage, and therefore must be done entirely at your own risk. No one affiliated with the CyanogenMod project is responsible for your actions. Good luck.
After flashing recovery, you must long press Power to turn the device off. Then, turn the device on with the recovery mode button combination: Vol Down and Power.
