How to Install CyanogenMod 12 (Android 5.0.2 Lollipop) Update on YU Yureka

Micromax’s subsidiary YU Televentures Ltd announced on 17 April that the company has released the much-awaited Cyanogen OS 12 (Android v5.0.2 Lollipop) to flagship smartphone Yureka via OTA (Over-The-Air) in India.

If YU Yureka owners are getting the update notifications, then select – “Yes, I’m in” option >> then, after downloading, select >> “Install now.” The phone will restart automatically and the OS will be updated to the new version.

We like to remind our readers that the roll-out process is carried out in phases, so it will take some time, probably by this weekend to reach all corners of the country. Until then, users can also check manually on the smartphone by going to – ‘Settings’ >> ‘About phone’ >> ‘System update’ >> ‘Check Now’;

Yureka device owners, who are impatient to wait for the new update, can install the OTA software manually. The company has released firmware on the official forum to those tech savvy who know how to flash firmware directly on the phone.

[Disclaimer: This procedure is very technical and should be performed by a person with sound knowledge of manual software installation of Android devices. If the installation process is not followed properly, there are chances of the device getting bricked or may even lead to the device being permanently irreparable. PaidFreeDroid cannot be held responsible for any damage or claims from readers if the procedure does not yield the required results or if devices get bricked. Hence users are advised to proceed with caution or just wait for a day or two to install new software with very less effort via OTA]
