How to Install Cyanogen OS 12.1 on YU YUREKA / YUREKA PLUS

The Cyanogen update is rolling out over-the-air, and should be hitting your device anytime soon.  It is worth mentioning that the OTA updates usually take a few days to cover all the handsets, so if you are one of those who have not received the update notification, do not panic.

Once you get an update notification, select the “Yes, Download” option >> now the phone will download update, and will show an option “Install Now”, once download completes >> Select “Install Now”. The phone will not restart automatically and will be updated with new features and version of Cyanogen OS 12.1 (build – YOG4PAS3JM). It may be noted that the phone may restart several times during the installation process, so do not disturb the automatic procedure.

If you have not received the notification, you can always carry out the manual check by heading to Settings >>  About Phone >> System Update >> Check Now.
