I recently bought a YU Yuphoria shipped with Stock Android which is really freaking me as people are saying that Yuphoria shipped with Cyanogen OS is far better than the Yuphoria shipped with stock Android. So, is there anyway I can put Cyanogen OS now on my Yuphoria??

    Doesn't Yuphoria already come with Cyanogen installed? And could you be specific on what exactly is the feature you are interested in that is missing in your phone right now?

  • Yes but I chose the android stock rom from amazon, they've got both. Commented Oct 20, 2015 at 11:13
  • In case you aren't aware CyanogenMod is different from Cyanogen OS while the former is developed by community members Cyanogen OS is the official ROM from Cyanogen Team. Here's a link explaining how to Manually Install CyanogenMod 12.1 on YU Yuphoria. Installing any custom ROM means, a preliminary requirement is you need to root your device first. Also this Cyanogen wiki has step by step details on the same.

If you want cyanogen OS on your yuphoria on android then you can go to the nearest service center and get it on your phone. You can check it on their website. I haven't done it yet, but you can give it a shot


Yu Yuphoria comes with 2 different version

Related thread on Official forum.

To get Cyanogen OS : You can scroll down to files to your device on Official Cyanogen - Support page. Or Download directly Cyanogen OS 12.1 - 5.1.1 and flash it to your device.

To get CyanogenMod : You can go to Official CyanogenMod support page for Yuphoria. Or Download directly CyanogenMod 12.1 and flash it to your device.


You can install stock android YUOS which is available on Yu official website or install CM website. I am currently having CM 13.0 snapshot release on my yuphoria and very happy using it. CM community did a wonderful job on fixing bugs and adding improvements to 13.0 release.

Install instructions are provided on respective sites and xda forums.

Hope it helps.


Well, Android and Cyanogen aren't two separate OS internally but Cyanogen is the customized form of Android (with extra privileges). And, I would recommend you to stay with the stock Android if you've recently bought the device.

If you want to put Cyanogen you'll have to go through a lot of steps [Flashing another ROM] (it might make your device unusable/ cause errors after installing Cyanogen). Tell your friends to peace out and keep calm. I prefer the stock Android rather than CyanogenMod.

And, at last if you've money to get another smartphone, you can go ahead and experiment by installing Cyanogen. (:-D)

  • Are you certain that you're not mixing things up? Cyanogen is the name used by Steve Kondik who first developed the now community based ROM CyanogenMod (CM) and owns the company Cyanogen Inc. which works with some OEMs to ship devices with custom tailored version of CM, termed as Cyanogen OS. And Yu Yuphoria comes with Cyanogen OS.

  • I just explained him in simple launguage. He might be thinking about CM as Windows and Android, like two complete different OS. And, the name has been legally registered that's why they can say it as Cyanogen OS (because Android is Open Sourced). What did I say wrong in layman language? If you say a person who has not even heard of OEM, Flashing etc then should you explain that way?

  • Don't always make things complex.. What I said I see - "Cyanogen is the customized form of Android (with extra privileges), and suggested him to not try flashing up a different ROM (If a guy has bought a new device why should anyone suggest him to experiment if he doesn't know about flashing) and stay with the current Android version. What did I miss?

  • Hey guys cool down I know Cyanogen is a based on android and my phone didn't came with the cyanogen because I choose the android yuphoria from amazon. They've got both but I thought I found it a mistake but as you are saying that stock rom is better than okay. And hey I know how to flash. Commented Oct 20, 2015 at 11:10
  • Yup, I'm cool. But, it's not right to assume that a person asking a question always knows the pre-requisites. I'm just irritated at him lowering my reputation without any valid reason. If you're a big shot that doesn't mean you can just put -1 on any one -_-
