micromax yu yureka

Following the release of the Android Lollipop-based Cyanogen 12 OTA update for the OnePlus One, the same update is now hitting the Micromax Yureka.

Cyanogen OS 12 brings the new features and design tweaks from stock Android 5.0, with a couple of new Cyanogen-made features on top, including App Themer and the new Boxer-based Email app. More details about the changes in Cyanogen 12 can be found here.

Like with the OnePlus One, Yureka users should be getting their OTA within three days, but the more impatient can opt for the relatively straightforward process or sideloading the updated OTA file, which can be downloaded from here.

Yesterday, Cyanogen announced that it will begin bundling its operating system with a number of Microsoft, starting later this year. It’s not clear if existing devices, like the Micromax Yureka, will get the same treatment.

In related news, CyanogenMod 12.1 (Android 5.1) nightlies of CyanogenMod are now available for download.
