Installing CyanogenMod from recovery

Note:

Some devices do not have removable SD cards. Regardless, there should still be a partition on the device named "/sdcard" that can be used for flashing purposes, even though the contents of /sdcard may actually be in internal storage.

  1. Download the prebuilt release of CyanogenMod you wish to install. (Or if you've built CM yourself, look in the $OUT directory for the .zip.)
    Optional: Download any supplemental 3rd-party applications packages for the device you wish to use.
  2. Place the CyanogenMod rom .zip file on the root of the SD card using adb:
    • Transfer your file(s): adb push YOURROMZIP.zip /sdcard/
      • If you boot directly to recovery and have an internal sdcard, you may need to run adb shell mount /sdcard or mount data through the recovery menu before transferring.
      • If you see "error: device not found" there is likely a driver issue on the PC.
      • If you see "error: insufficient permissions for device", try "adb kill-server" and then run "adb devices" to see if the device is attached.
      • On some devices, the zip file can be copied to the device using standard USB Mass Storage or MTP support. Boot the device normally and transfer the file to it.
    Optional: Place any supplemental packages (e.g. Google Apps[1] or kernel) .zip file(s) on the root of the SD card.
  3. Boot to recovery mode on the device by holding Vol Down & Power.
  4. Once the device boots into the ClockworkMod Recovery, use the physical volume buttons to move up and down. On most devices, the power button is used to confirm your selection, although for some devices the power button is used as a "back" button to go up one level, in which case the home button is used to confirm the selection.
    Optional/Recommended: Select backup and restore to create a backup of the current installation on the device. If this option is missing, it's likely because the stock ROM has overwritten your custom recovery on boot.
  5. Select the option to wipe data/factory reset.
  6. Select install zip from sdcard.
  7. Select choose zip from sdcard.
  8. Select the CyanogenMod file you placed on the sdcard. You will then need to then confirm that you do wish to flash this file.
    Optional: Install any additional packages you wish using the same method.
  9. Once the installation has finished, return back to the main menu, and select the reboot system now option. The device should now boot into CyanogenMod.
