Root access with CyanogenMod

When you install CyanogenMod now, it will seem as if you do not have root access. You actually do but CyanogenMod has turned that off. I was surprised and started trying to root my phone. Luckily, nothing bad happened but you do not need to do this!

Enable developer options by:

  1. Going to Settings
  2. Select About Phone
  3. Tap Build Phone multiple times
  4. Return to the Settings menu and select Developer Options
  5. Select Root Access and give your Apps and ADB root access!

You can try to install SuperSU but CyanogenMod has Privacy Guard to manage your SU requests.

That is a safe and fun way to root your phone running CyanogenMod safely.
