If you’re the owner of a OnePlus 3 smartphone, then you might be up to date with what CM13 is. If you’re not – we’re here to save the day. CM13 stands for CyanogenMod 13 ROM which can now be installed on your Phone, with a little preparation prior to the download.
You will want to have your phone rooted, as well as the GApps packet for Android and a zip file for ROM installation. Don’t forget to install TWRP recovery, because it’s a must for this process. Another must is that you have to unlock the bootloader for your smartphone. We have to advise you that, if you don’t back up your data on a regular basis, you have to back it up now because the CyanogenMod 13 will erase all of your data.
What this new driver can do is ‘upgrade’ your version of Android (Marshmallow, if you’re using the OnePlus 3) by giving you more features like customization for your status bar, Doze, a more permissive software for apps and some battery saving options as well. If you’re interested in the CyanogenMod 13, then keep on reading for some easy steps to how you can install it on your own OnePlus 3. Please make sure to have a full battery before attempting to install the mod.
Disclaimer: Do not try to do this if you don’t own a OnePlus 3 smartphone – because it will not work on another device.

Steps To Install CM13 ROM On OnePlus 3
- As we advised you before, you need to have a custom recovery installed on your phone. So, the first step would be to download it if you don’t already have it on your smartphone.
- .Download the files for the GApps packet as well as the CyanogenMod 13 on your Phone.
- The third step is to boot the phone by pressing the On/Off Button and the Volume Down one. This will get your Phone into recovery mode.
- A very important step in this process is to activate a Nandroid backup – which will ensure that your smartphone is backed up if the installation doesn’t go as planned. You can do this step while in TWRP.
- On this step you will want to perform a Factory Reset. If you’re not familiar with this notion, you just need to go to the Wipe menu, then the Advanced Wipe submenu and select Wipe cache, Dalvik cache, Data and System and confirm the action with a swiping motion.
- You can now install the zip file for ROM, as well as flash the zip file for the GApps packet for Android.
- The last step is to wipe cache and Dalvik cache one more time so you can reboot your Phone. Now you have the CyanogenMod 13 installed and should work just fine.
