Android Marshmallow brings some huge improvements from its prior version, so I know that this is what you dream of for your Android One Sprout 4 Device too. I am talking about the new security feature, as well as the contextual assistance feature, the Now on Tap feature or the auto back up where all data that saved in the user app could be securely stored in the cloud storage, but let me tell you from the start that CM 13 is nothing more than a custom ROM and not an official release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS which means losing your Android’s One Sprout 4 warranty.

Even more, this CM13 guide is only for the mentioned set of Android One devices. If tried on any other device, it might get bricked. And all users should be reminded that the site is not liable to any damages that might occur while processing the installation, so make sure to play by the book. You see, there are some serious risks to take in consideration!

However, if you are one hundred percent sure that you want to complete the CM13 Android 6.0 M guidelines from below, let me help you. Make sure that your Android One Sprout 4 is rooted and all your files and data are all backed up. Be sure that they will be all wiped out when the installation begins, so don’t skip this important step.

If you to want to be successful, then you must also install a custom recovery image like CWM or TWRP recovery and make sure you have installed the USB drivers on the PC or else a connection between these two will be impossible.

Then, enable Developer Options (go to Menu – Settings – About phone and tap several times on Built Number) as from Menu – Settings – Developer options, you have to check the USB Debugging field. Has your Android device more than 60 percent battery? If not, plug in the charger before going any further or you might regret your decision.
