How to Install CyanogenMod 13 (Android M 6.0.1) in YU Yunique


YU launched its one of the most cheapest device, YU Yunique with 4G functionality. But as usual, like every other company, they forgot about Software updates or bug fixes.

Lets not talk about that, thanks to DC07 YU Yunique users can now enjoy Cyanogenmod 13 (CM 13) based on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 with almost zero bugs.
Features of CyanogenMod 13

Finger Print support
Multi Window Support
New Sytem UI and more Customization
Better Battery through Doze
New “Do Not Disturb” settings, a good step up from Lollipop
Better Theme App.
All the features of Android M.
About CyanogenMod

CyanogenMod is an alternative operating system intended to replace the one pre-installed on your smart phones and tablets. If you’ve got an older device that isn’t getting updates anymore, or if your device seems unusually slow, or maybe you’re sick of spyware, adware, and other unwanted garbage on your phone that you can’t remove… Maybe your device is missing features or has been otherwise artificially limited in functionality. Perhaps you just could use aboost in performance. Or maybe you’d like to be more confident that your operating system has included some of the latest bug fixes. If so, CyanogenMod might be for you.
If the ROM stable?

Yes, its completely stable. All the basic functions like calling,Wifi, bluetooth.. almost everything are working. However, the developer has clearly mentioned that its an initial build so it might contain some bugs. So try this ROM at your own risk.
Check the battery percentage of the phone, it should be at least 40%.
This ROM is only for YU Yunique (jalebi). Please don’t try this on any other smartphones.
Backup all your data: Contacts, Photos, Apps & other files. (Although you will not lose other files except contacts & Apps, but its better to be on the safer side)
