Micromax Yureka has started receiving the coveted Cyanogen OS 12 (CM12S) ROM with the latest Lollipop features, just two days after the OnePlus One got the debut release of the new Cyanogen firmware.
Yu's co-founder, Rahul Sharma, has recently posted on the Yureka's official forum thread that the CM12S Lollipop update for the Yu Yureka has been submitted to Google for certification and it is now ready for release.
Here is what Rahul had to say on the forum while discussing the new Lollipop experience with CM12S ROM on the Yureka phone:
Yes, the wait is over and after a long toil for perfection, the team will roll it out in phases over the next 3 days. With a whole new world of features that include highly customized extra theming options, CyanogenMail, Exchange support, multiple account integration and so much more beyond the existing goodness of Android Lollipop, L is sweeter than you thought. Delighted to say that, every element of visual, motion and interaction design is flawless, for you guys deserve nothing less.
Loving the L experience (sharing some screenshots). Go ahead, it's time for Cyanogen OS 12, look forward to hearing from you!
Although the official OTA rollout has already begun and all Yureka users are likely to receive the new Lollipop update on their devices within three days, restless Lollipop fans can go ahead and download the OTA file manually. They can then use the regular side-loading method to update the firmware.

Note: In case you ended up bricking your device in the process of installing the firmware, you can try restoring your device to stock settings using the 'How to Unbrick' guide posted by XDA.
