After going live on the Play Store less than three weeks back, the CyanogenMod Installer app has been taken down. The developer team voluntarily removed the app after Google accused them of having violated the Play Store s terms of service.

According to the statement, Google told the CM Team that though the application itself is harmless it encourages users to void their warranty and hence would not be allowed to on the Play Store. Google also took issue of the fact that the app allowed one to unlock bootloaders and flash third-party software, which is apparently shunned by the company.
For those who still want custom ROMs on their phones can head over to the CyanogenMod website and use the sideload process for the installation. In the meantime the developers have mentioned that they are in talks with Samsung and Amazon to list their app on their respective app stores.
