All credit goes to original guide from Botoshel.
Gene setup: (not required, but highly recommended. Easier on casual)
If your virus develops ANY symptom without dna, quickly devolve it before the virus is spotted. Take note that devolving does cost DNA points

Cytochrome Surge
No Zombies so no zombie genes.

1.) Start in India

2.) Evolve Saliva 1, Zoonotic Shift, and Bat 1

3.) Keep an eye on the news banner and wait for the news to appear that says:
Colony of rabid bats triggers town evacuation
If this doesn't appear by the time shortly after India is completely infected, Start over.

4.) After seeing the news banner above, devolve Bat 1

5.) Evolve Drug Resistance 1, Genetic Hardening, and Genetic Re-Shuffle 1 & 2

6.) Again, wait for two news banners to appear before continuing on that say:

WHO starts Rabies Eradication Initiative AND Film about Rabies epidemic becomes global hit

7.) Once you've seen both new banners above continue by evolving Gastrointestinal Expansion and Cold Resistance 1 & 2

8.) Wait until the world is completely infected. (No Healthy person left pop-up appears)

9.) Evolve the following: Insomnia, Fever, Photophobia, Coma, Acute Encephalitis, and Hyper Salivation. (Thanks to IndigoX00 for noting to have 70 pts for symptoms and devolving zoonotic shift)

10.) Wait for the pop-up to appear that says:
[plague name] is a form of Rabies

11.) Immediately devolve Zoonotic Shift after seeing the pop-up above.

12.) After some time, the final pop-up should appear saying:
[plague name] Rabies link 'false'

After seeing this pop-up, the cure should slow down significantly and after a while should stop completely. You are now free to eradicate humanity without the use of zombies. The whole process of killing take a long time, a really really long time. This is where your patience will be slightly tested.

If nothing goes wrong like mutating Cytopathic Reanimation, you'll finish this game with ease. If somehow that zombie symptom mutates, try to devolve it right away.

Note from ProjectSix in the comments: Make sure to check the news ticker frequently, as you may miss it. Especially if playing on fast mode.
And if you save for a backup, save to a new file each time. There seems to be a save bug out that freezes the game might break that file.

When I personally was successful, I made it to step 11 and the cure just sort of stopped itself and everyone died off very slowly. It will take time and luck.
Slightly formatted differently and changed from source:

Please do not downvote because you couldn't get the pop ups. It IS luck based and it may take some time. Let me know if there is anything I can add.
