    I just wish he didn't look evil.

    • http://www.thepixelpuse.com aj

      Yeah. Not a fan of the evil eyes.

    • http://vitiate.me twodogs

      That's my favorite part. :)

  • shawn

    not horrible not great. so will get used to it over time. it's just a damn useless mascot ;)

  • evcon

    I really liked the shorter one from a few days ago. It's more approachable and less "trying to be a badass"

    • Eogram

      I agree, I like the cute little guy from earlier.
      This one is still fine enough, but it makes me think of Kirby boxart

    • Jared Sartin

      agreed! It should be more approachable, branding is important...

    • Josh Phillips

      Totally agree with this. I also liked that the shorter one had hands cupped like a "c", which I guess kind of invoked cyanogenmod in my mind... I also liked that it was a little playful. The new one is taking itself waaaay to seriously.

        Oh, I am the opposite, I hated those alien clamp hands.

  • http://www.keithbluhm.com Keith

    Anything going to change regarding the new boot animation that they JUST had developed?

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Looks like it would have to be scrapped, right?

  • http://code.google.com/p/lg-v909 Aaron

    Just don't like it at all. Bleh. Doesn't even look androidy at all. Looks like a space Martian or something other worldy. Thumbs down...

    • Jim

      Agreed. I personally didn't like the first redesign but this is terrible. Seems immature... Really like the font tho

  • Alex Sandy

    Now we're talking, lol. Swell revision I say

  • http://www.academia-nutcrackers.com Sven Enterlein

    Excellent! looks "ready to kick fruit"!!

  • Matt

    anyone else like the one they unveiled two days ago better? this thing like like an evil alien now, instead of a warm inviting robot humanoid.

  • Yod-b

    yeah, sometimes he has an evil look. i prefer the cute one with the huge round eyes. :)

  • Jim

    TeleTubbies are kind of fitting ... since the Market has been renamed Google Play.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      I have been wondering what it reminds me of on the back of my mind - that's it! Teletubbies. I can't believe something so bad could have been approved.

  • http://rmathur.com Rohan Mathur

    It's just a mascot folks... its not that important and you don't need to look at it every day...

  • Kree

    i think it was a step in the right direction compared to the rAndy version. i just wish i would have known they were looking for a new logo, idk how i missed that info :(

    • http://www.thepixelpuse.com aj

      Yeah. Same here. I would've loved to get in on that action. Oh well.

  • http://www.unrepentantgaming.org Kristopher

    Personally I'm not a fan of the "lanky" one.. I liked the old one/current boot anim one.. honestly if i was going "pro" with a logo, i wouldn't anthropomorphize it at all.. i'd go with just a head if anything like that.. i think they need something thats more like a stylized "CM" with the arrow or something.. but hey.. i'm just a user.. i can always change boot anims and/or any other logos i don't like..

    • http://www.unrepentantgaming.org Kristopher

      on another note.. looking at him again.. his head looks like a lego figure's head.. lol.. anyways, it'd be nice to see some more non-humanoid ones imho..

  • http://www.GrantGarrison.com OMGrant

    I like the happy version on the right, the evil eye'd ones send the wrong message...

    • http://www.thepixelpuse.com aj

      Agreed. The other two make it look like they're trying too hard to look badass.

    • Sathed

      Maybe it's supposed to be a metaphor... First, you're angry because you have a bloated phone (left), but then you flash CM and now you're finally pleased with your phone (right).

      • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

        Just like that sour patch kids commercial.

  • John

    Again, the worst logo I have ever seen from an incredible great team. You guys are designers and can't come up with a better logo/mascot? wow. I wrote this before, the ugly looking thing is too big, it'll take the whole page and then the words "cyanogenmod" written across is just doesn't balance right.

  • Clint P.

    Better than what you had up yesterday. I kinda like it. It will grow on me for sure though. And I don't think the eyes send the wrong message. They aren't "evil" eyes. They are glaring eyes.

  • Derek C.

    Happy one looks best. Evil ones look stupid.

  • John

    Hideous. I hope this is all a joke.

  • aLeXandEr

    IMO! The new logo and I assume eventually new boot animation has the poise of a young person turning original rebel... But with how many people download CyanogenMod, and never leave it's calm waters for more uncharted territory (or even flash CM again)... To me this couldn't be further from the truth! I'm defiantly not knocking CM... I give it a go every now and again just to check it out, and I often run CM on my wife's device(s), easy customization/themeing, ya know... But with supported devices higher than any other ROM and download counts close to or higher than any other stock or after market ROM, to me this couldn't be further from the truth. CM provides new modders with a great wading and swimming experience. And again IMO, CM should depict this, cutie & cuddly-ish, and leave the rebel without a cause look to RootZ & BAMF!

  • Billy

    Forget the new logo. Get CM9 working already..

  • Mei

    New logo doesn't look too good. They should make the legs shorter. Would have look cute like Andy Android. But then Andy was just fine. CM did not need to change logo.

  • http://gyurigrell.com Gyuri

    Looks like the Teletubbies...

  • jan

    the legs should be shorter, other than that it looks fine.

  • http://j.biz Miseine

    The angry eyes convey inmatureness. Has "teenage computer nerd" written all over it. With normal eyes is passable.

  • http://j.biz Miseine

    This one looks decent if they added friendly eyes to it:

    • Bobby Tables

      That was my favorite, too. The current one is too angry.

  • Gogol

    Just sux, it should resemble Android ...

  • Tyler

    He looks like that Robot From Dance Dance revolution..also, adding a skate board doesn't make him cool. He looks like a poser.

    At least the original robot looked like he was having fun and stiff like a robot on the skateboard.

    Cid looks like a human just put on a robot head.

  • Noreen

    Sorry, I just don't like either of two new mascots. The android on the skateboard was my favorite. I'll get over it.

  • http://www.burakcalik.com/ xmRipper

    Small one was cool. This guy is tall.

  • Just Joe

    Ultimately the choice is the developers, but damn, just over half of us like it...? To a marketing manager, those aren't very impressive #'s.
