I was first introduced to Android with the Samsung Fascinate and I've been hooked ever since. I love the customization that Android offers the user to personalize their phone. I enjoy writing and have been blessed with the opportunity to share this passion for Android with others.

    Hi, I have a curious question, but the CyanogenMod Installer – will that actually root my phone, along with the other steps which are mentioned within the app itself? Apologies for the newbie question in advance…

    • Nelson Mejia

      The CyanogenMod will not root your phone unless plugged into a computer PC only as it does not yet support OS X on MAC.

      • myandroid99

        also unlock the bootloader

    Sorry if I was clear on my previous post, but with the CyanogenMod Installer and having my phone attached my computer, and following the instructions from the CyanogenMod Installer app, will that root my phone?

    • Gill Android

      You need Installer on your phone and the appropriate app on your PC. That is all you need. You need NOT to be rooted. It will do rooting in the process and install CM to your Android.
