There are multiple builds of the software running on the I545.
Only the original build, MDK, can run Cyanogen since the CM ports use a custom kernel and we can't flash a custom kernel on any release past MDK since the bootloader is locked.
You can root it and use Safestrap to install a small set of custom ROMs if you're on some build past MDK.
