CM 12 Lollipop


  • The CyanogenMod Custom ROM you are going to found here is only for HTC Desire C. Don’t flash it on other phones because it will result in bricking your phone.
  • Always do a backup before performing actions like this. This guide is tested by developers and many people have reported the ROM as fully working, but who knows something can goes wrong during the installation so be sure to make a backup. We suggest to do a Nandroid backup because it will make a full copy of your system image.
  • Charge your phone at least to 60% so it will not shut down unexpectedly during the installation procedure. It will result in soft bricking and you have to find and install a stock firmware and it’s not easy at all.


  • Root Access. Make sure to root your phone before going further.
  • Install a Custom Recovery. It’s strongly recommended to use latest version of TWRP.
