CyanogenMod - Installation with Google Apps

Finally i installed CyanogenMod in my HTC Wildfire. The one thing that was putting me away from CyanogenMod is the lack of HTC Sense. But finally, i convinced myself to get rid of HTC Sense. Now , i can see the HTC only when the phone boots. After that, there is not trace of HTC in my mobile. Cyanogen completely overrides HTC applications and features.

Quick Installation Guide

Am not going to give a step by step instructions. Assuming you have installed a custom ROM before.

  • Store the ROM file(.Zip. Don't do smart work of Extracting it :p) in your SD Card (Sorry! cant give link..Google It!)
  • Reboot in recovery mode.
  • Wipe and Reset Factory Settings (Important , else your Installation will be BUGGY!!!!)
  • Take a nandroid back up(I never do it :p)
  • Install From Zip
  • Reboot the System.
  • Done!!!

Many sources in the Internet say, after the first time installation , booting takes around 5 - 8 minutes. Thats really a false statement. Whether its first time or you are restarting it the 100th time, it takes around 5 mins to boot. So , avoid restarting the phone.

A clean installation of CyanogenMod will have no Google Apps (Including Android market). To install GApps, download the Google Apps Package(Again , pls Google It!)

  • Move the Zip file to the Memory Card (Don't Unzip)
  • Reboot in recovery mode
  • Wipe and Reset Factory Settings (Important!!)
  • Install from Zip
  • Reboot
  • Well Done!

Now your phone is 100% Android. If possible, paste a Android Sticker in your Phone....:p

Difference Between Cloudy Vision and Blurred Vision

Blurred Vision:

If the Sharpness of the Image goes of, its blurred Vision. The image appears like its is not Clear and details wont be clear enough to analyze what is what. In the worst case, the Shape of the Image goes blurred, even a Cow appear as an ATM Machine

Cloudy Vision:

Cloudy vision means
Consider a glass of water , add a drop of Milk in it.
Then see how it looks.
That is how you would see the world. The whole thing is clear but you would see a Mild Screen.
