If you own the Yu Yureka Android device, then there is a good news for you folks. Now you can install the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow software on your device with the CyanogenMod 13 ROM. Courtesy of Santhosh M, a recognized developer at XDA, the Yureka device can now taste Marshmallow.

As it is an initial release for CM 13, the ROM may consist of some bugs right now. However, with future updates stability improvements and bug fixes can be expected. First thing you will need is TWRP installed on your device. Once you setup the custom recovery, you are all set to flash the custom ROM listed below. If you like to tinker with such things, then here is a good chance to get the most out of your device.

The camera works great. However, for video recording you will need to choose either FULL HD 1080p or HD 720p. You can get these options from camera setting->resolution&quality->Video->back camera video. Before we begin get through the bugs listed below and make a wise decision. Also backup everything before proceeding.

Backup your Apps and Data
Before you proceed, make sure you backup all your data. This process will wipe all the data from your device except for the internal storage. Hence, a full backup or nandroid backup is recommended.

How to Install Android 6.0 Marshmallow on Yu Yureka With CM 13

  1. Download the Marshmallow CM 13 ROM from the download section. Also download the Marshmallow Google Apps of your choice.
  2. Now transfer the zip file into your device’s internal storage. Place the zip file where you can easily locate it.
  3. Now reboot into Custom Recovery (like TWRP). To boot into TWRP, first turn off your device and then press and hold volume down and power keys at the same time. If you see the TWRP logo, that means you have successfully booted into the recovery.
  4. It’s highly recommended that you perform a nandroid backup. To backup your ROM, tap on backup option in TWRP and select all the partitions including System, Data, Boot, Recovery, EFS and swipe right where appropriate, to backup.
  5. After performing the ROM backup, perform a full wipe. Return to the TWRP main menu and tap the wipe button and select Advanced Wipe. Then select Dalvik CacheSystemData, and Cache. Now swipe the confirmation button to wipe.
  6. Now go back to the TWRP main menu or home screen and tap on the install option. Navigate to the ROM file and select it.
  7. Swipe the confirmation button to proceed with the installation. The ROM will be installed.
  8. Now return to home in the TWRP and tap on the install option. Navigate to the Google apps zip file and select it.
  9. Swipe the confirmation button to proceed with the installation.
  10. Once installed, reboot to system.

If you see the new boot logo, that means you have successfully installed the ROM on your device. If you come across any boot loop or face system errors, try a factory reset from the recovery or you can always restore your previous ROM from the backup.
