A couple of weeks ago the CyanogenMod team launched CyanogenMod Installer on the Google Play Store, the app allows you to replace you existing installation of Android with CyanogenMod.
Now the CyanogenMod Installer app has been removed from the Google Play Store, and according to Google, the app violates Google’s developer terms.
The news was posted on the CyanogenMod Blog by ciwrl, and he explained that Google decided that the app should be removed from the play store because it ‘encourages users to void their warranty’, by replacing the version of Android that came with the device with CyanogenMod.
Today, we were contacted by the Google Play Support team to say that our CyanogenMod Installer application is in violation of Google Play’s developer terms.
They advised us to voluntarily remove the application, or they would be forced to remove it administratively. We have complied with their wishes while we wait for a more favorable resolution.
The CyanogenMod team have said that they will be submitting the CyanogenMod Installer app to the Amazon Appstore and the Samsung app store.
The application can still be used via side loading the app, and you can find out more details about the app and how to download it over at the CyanogenMod Blog at the link below.
