After Google notified Cyanogen Inc about the violation of Google Play developer terms by CyanogenMod Installer app, the company has voluntarily removed it from Google Play. The app is still available via Cyanogen website and can be easily sideloaded on any Android device but it is still an added inconvenience for newbies.
“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,” Cyanogen Inc wrote in a blog post.
Cyanogen Inc has revealed that it plans to list the app on Amazon Appstore and Samsung Apps for make it easily accessible to at-least some users. If you are looking for a direct link to the APK, you can find the app here. Instructions for installing it can be found here.
