The much popular CyanogenMod OS is exclusively available on the YU device range and as was expected, YU has released the much anticipated upgrade package Cyanogen Mod v12.1 for its recently launched YU Yuphoria.
The company has officially confirmed the upgrade rollout and Yuphoria owners should be getting OTA notifications for the same. Micromax founder Rahul Sharma tweeted that “The CyanogenMod 12.1 OS update is currently on a roll-out path. Users can check out the new update and let us know the rollout status, in the comments section below.”
