Phone [Q] What is Cynogenmod ???

Please tell me about cynogenmod or whatever it is because I'm new to all this android thingy, I know sort of things about android like rooting and all. What is it, how does it work ? What does it do to your phone ? Is it dangerous? Will it crack or break my phone ? I want to know everything, and if it's for good so I want to know that how can I install it in my phone.

There is something called Google.
Also, if you look around the forums, you would get a grasp of what CM, rooting, installation of ROMs etc are like.

CyanogenMod (called CM) is a custom ROM / aftermarket firmware.

Just as explained, CM is an aftermarket firmware, so it lives as your phone system.
Also, it isn't dangerous at all, really.
No, it won't destroy your phone if you use it right.

I have been told that what destroy your phone, is yourself. So, if you brick your phone it's because of you, not us or CM itself.
