The CyanogenMod official version is available for the Oppo N1 users who had bought the normal version and not the CyanogenMod version which was available from December 24th. This is especially for those who didn’t like the ColorOS which is the actual interface in the Oppo N1, and they can install the CyanogenMod 10.2 version which is being given by Oppo in the smartphone.
So to install the cyanogenmod on Oppo N1, you will need the following requirements before you proceed with the below steps.
Ensure that your Oppo N1 has a minimum battery percentage of 75%, so that the process happens without any problems
Take a backup of all the personal data, contacts, messages and the internal storage in the phone because that would get deleted when you install the Cyanogenmod, although the files would still be there
Download the following files, and remember that you are going to use the file named cm-10.2-WPPH50O-n1-signed.zip from the list, but keep all the three downloaded, so that you could use the others to revert back to the original ROM if in future, you didn’t want to use the Cyanogenmod ROM.

Steps to Install Cyanogenmod on Oppo N1
- Copy the files you downloaded to the file system of the Oppo N1, in the root folder
- Go to the System Update application under the Tools folder in your App drawer, and open it
- Select “Local update”, browse for the file you have downloaded and press “Upgrade Now” when prompted
- In the Oppo Recovery, select the language as English

This is quite an easy tutorial as you don’t really have to go into the admin settings and the System Update app would do the job easier for you to install this Cyanogenmod version. This is the CyanogenMod 10.2 and not the CM11 version, and the latter one is expected to be available very soon.
