Un-official Cyanogenmod 11 for the HTC Desire 816

CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of the latest Android version, which is designed to add some more features, increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
CyanogenMod is primarily based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community.

Installing custom ROM requires a custom recovery to be installed on your device, which will VOID your warranty and delete all your data.
Please visit the Disclaimer page below to agree with the risks involved and proceed before flashing this ROM to your phone:

Installing Cyanogenmod ROM to your device:

Custom recovery:

Cyanogenmod ROM:

When you are done with the custom recovery installation process you need the Cyanogenmod custom ROM for your device.
Because this is not an official porting, So the CyanogenMod ROM is hosted on an external site rather on cyanogenmod.org.

Download the latest build according to the date added and keep the .zip file on your SD card.

Now follow the same rooting guide to flash Cyanogenmod as well:
Instead of copying the SuperSU mentioned in the next step, here you have to copy the Cyanoenmod .zip file which I believe that you have already done in the previous step.
