How to install CyanogenMod Recovery (CM Recovery) in Yunqiue

 

What is Recovery?
Recovery is a limited boot mode, independent of your normal Android operating system. In the stock recovery, you can install OTA update packages, wipe data, and wipe the cache partition. The feature set available depends on the specific recovery installed. In general, stock recoveries (which come pre-installed on your device) are the most limited. They typically only allow manufacturer updates to be performed and remain mostly invisible to the end user. Simple recovery, used by the CyanogenMod Installer, is another limited recovery meant to perform only basic tasks, like updates and wipes. Custom recoveries, described below, offer a much larger suite of tools. The most important of these is the ability to make a full device backup which can later be restored if Android misbehaves in an unrecoverable fashion.



Preparations:
  1. To avoid data loss while rooting, it is always recommended to have a backup of all of your important data and stuff. Backup SMS | Contacts | Call Logs etc.
  2. Enable USB Debugging from Developer Options.
  3. Charge Yunique to at least 65% before you proceed.
  4. Download and install required USB Drivers on PC. Alternative.
  5. Install and setup ADB and Fastboot drivers – Windows | Mac.
  6. Unlock Bootloader on YU Yunique.
