Three weeks ago,  CyanogenMod launched its first installer app on Play Store. However, today Google has removed it from its store as, according to them, the app violates the terms.
Going on to the statement, Google told the CM Team that though the “application itself is harmless” it “encourages users to void their warranty” and hence would not be allowed to on the Play Store. Google also took issue of the fact that the app allowed one to unlock bootloaders and flash third-party software, which is apparently shunned by the company.
For those who still want custom ROMs on their phones can head over to the CyanogenMod website and use the ‘sideload’ process for the installation. In the meantime the developers have mentioned that they are in talks with Samsung and Amazon to list their app on their respective app stores.
