Cyanogen Inc takes up a new identity with a new logo

CyanogenMod, one of the popular custom ROM options for Android users, became so famous that the developers behind the ROM decided to start a company to support the rom and that was the birth of Cyanogen Inc. Ever since, they have had support of Chinese manufacturers like Oppo and One Plus to directly install CM ROM on their smartphones.


On April 3rd, Cyanogen Inc announced on their blog that they rebranding and changing their logo(again). The new logo is more of symbols rather than characters which used to be the trademark of CM ROM. They have explained in depth why they have chosen the new logo and new look.

Cyanogen Inc now focuses up on three core values – Customization, Security and Open Source. You may wonder what happened to “Cid”. Cid used to be the alien mascot for the company and was supposedly their logo. But now that they have adapted a new logo, they now tell that “cid” belongs to the community.
