New CyanogenMOD mascot Cid represents the maturation of an open-source brand

    It looks sinister.

      I agree, but I think it fits the CyanogenMOD attitude of being a bit of a rebel and sticking it to the man.

      I agree that it looks sinister, and this surprises me.

      I thought they wanted branding that took them more mainstream.

    Why couldn’t they just make it the original android robot but in cyan? FAIL

  • Joe

    Looks like a cross between Pitpat and the Greendale Human Being.

    Cid is a black guy’s name… 🙁
    What gives?

  • UUUiiin

    The head is a little scary but not actually too unpleasant. The body is… odd. Big and wide and odd.

    Cid looks like he is going to brick your phone and then spit fire acid in your face. When dealing with something that voids your warranty, can harm your device (potentially), cause bug issues ect I don’t think the best logo is a creature that looks like it will not only do all that on pourpose but enjoy it while it does it. To grow means new adopters to your offered product … this will not make new people eagerly want to start Modding with confidence.

    That’s just me. Not saying it should be a puppy with a bow in its head but an angry ashole looking thing isn’t rebellious … its stupid branding.

    At least give it a smile, like its happy you chose to mod your device. I get an uneasy anxiety looking at that thing lol :s

    Aliens got that logo on their bathroom doors inside of their spaceships! Personally I think it looks alright. I prefer that to the one that has been announced previously with the lego hands. I like that he looks kinda mean.

    For all the awesome work the cyanogenmod team does, I could care less what the logo looks like. You want to put a Turd as the new logo? Go for it! Just keep on giving me that CM crack!
