    HTC Desire 816 CM13 (CyanogenMod 13 Marshmallow) ROM has now arrived. Please have a look on the working and not-working features list before you go for flashing. Aslo, it is strongly recommended to have a BACKUP of current ROM before you go to flash this ROM. I have added two ROM links; one from bigsupersquid and another from Garak.

    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 further you may consider backup your all data. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you. Neither the developer nor we will be held responsible for any disaster that happens to your device.

    STEP 1:

    Copy the ROM and GApps zip file to your phone (By using a USB cable or via adb push command).

    STEP 2:

    Or else if you are on a pc with USB driver and adb installed, then type the following command:

    $ adb reboot recovery

    First of thanks a lot of releasing CM updates for HTC desire 816, although its old phone.
    I installed CM13 in my HTC desire without any issues. Everything is working smoothly including camera. Only bug I found is while playing music, theres some disturbances in heavy beat songs, however playing with earphones are fine.
