    This is an unofficial CyanogenMod 12.1 Galaxy S Advance Lollipop ROM (i9070) based on Android Lollipop 5.1.1, by developer hastalafiesta. Unofficial CyanogenMod 12.1 means there will be no OTAs and no daily updates. You will be getting updates when the developer release one. This ROM is ready for daily usage with minor bugs.

    Installing custom ROM requires a custom recovery to be installed on your device, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding you may consider backup your all data. Neither the developer nor we can held responsible for your mistakes. Understand that YOU are the only person making changes to your phone.

    STEP 1:

    Put the boot.cpio.gz into /efs folder in your device and set its permissions to 777 by using terminal emulator app or any file explorer app (IMPORTANT!)

    STEP 2:

    Copy the CyanogenMod ROM and GApps zip file to your SD card or internal memory (By using a USB cable or via adb push command).

    STEP 3:

    Reboot your phone into recovery mode (Hole Volume UP + HOME + Power button while the phone is booting)
    Or if you have a PC in hand with USB driver installed for your phone then type the following command to enter into recovery mode:

    $ adb reboot recovery

    STEP 4:

    Wipe data/factory reset.
    If you don’t know how to do this then here is how to wipe data using TWRP recovery.

    This will delete all your data on your phone. You may consider backing up your phone data or take a nandroid backup. Here is how to take NANDROID backup using TWRP recovery.

    STEP 5:

    Select the Install Zip from sdcard option.
    Select the CyanogenMod ROM zip and then followed by the GApps zip file.
