How to Install Official CM 13 on Wileyfox Storm and Swift

Step 1: Download the ROM  of your choice from above. Also, download the compatible Google Apps from the download section. Download Marshmallow Gapps for CM 13. If you are looking for root after installation, then download the latest SuperSU package from the list.

Step 2: Transfer all the necessary files to you device’s internal storage or SDcard. Place the files where you can easily locate it.

Step 3: Now boot into TWRP recovery. To do so, turn off your device completely and then press and hold the power button and volume down key for a few seconds. Once you see the TWRP logo, that means you have successfully booted into the recovery. Alternatively, if you have rooted device, then use Android apps like the Quick boot or Boot Smart.

Step 4: Once into TWRP, take a Nandroid backup. To do so, tap Backup option and select all the partitions including the system, data, boot, recovery, EFS and cache(optional).

Step 5: Now wipe the current system. To do so, return to home screen and tap the Wipe option in TWRP. Tap Advanced Wipe and select partitions like system, boot, data, cache, Dalvik cache. Do not, in any case, select internal storage, unless you know what you are doing.

Step 6: Now return to the home screen again and tap Install option. Navigate to the ROM file from your internal storage and select it.

Step 7: Now swipe right on the confirmation action button below to install the ROM.

Step 8: Once installed, go back and select the compatible Google apps zip file from the location in your internal storage.

Step 9: Once selected, swipe right on the confirmation action button below to flash them.

Step 10: Once installation completes, you can wipe the Dalvik cache or simply choose reboot to system option.

Step 11: Once you reboot, you should see the new boot logo. This means that the ROM has been installed successfully. First boot may take a while. If the ROM doesn’t boot or you come across boot loop, a factory reset from the recovery should do the trick. If that fails, you can restore your previous ROM from the TWRP recovery.

    The Storm Recovery is NOT TWRP. It alsois apparantly a recovery for the Swift, from the messages it gives me.

      Oh I got confused. Thanks for the info. Did you try the recovery?

        Yeah, that’s the recovery I used to get Root on my Storm. Thankfully the root package doesn’t check what phone it is so the recovery works with it.

            Yeah, me too. It’s really disappointing that a fairly new CM device has basically no custom rom support.
