Install Yu Open OS (Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow) on YU Yureka, Yuphoria & Yunique

Like OnePlus, Yu Televentures has also moving away from Cyanogen OS with their own custom OS called ‘Yu Open OS’. It is based on the ASOP (Android Open Source Project) and this version of the custom ROM is built on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Yu Televentures will release the stable build of ‘Yu Open OS’ for Yureka, Yuphoria, and Yunique in next 30 days, while the beta version of the OS is now available for download and install.

In this guide, we show you how to install Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow based ‘Yu Open OS’ on Yureka, Yuphoria and Yunique. Note that this is a Beta build of the OS and unstable. The ROM may include many bugs that are not yet identified and fixed, so it cannot be used as daily driver. Users are advised to wait for the stable build of Yu Open OS.

Prerequisites for installing Yu Open OS (Android 6.0.1):

          You may not be installed the ROM properly. First, go to recovery and delete cache and dalvik cache. It it did not helped, reinstall the firmware
