    While the new branding / logo are pretty nice, they should probably stop rebranding and making new boot animations and stuff all the time if they want to get a bit more famous imo

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      They should also probably not publish images of their new branding that have clearly been resized / transformed poorly, too - there is so much edge color artifacting on these.

      • Bluewall

        As a designer, I can only agree with that !

    I am going to post this here as it's do with CyanogenMod ROM.
    I have been using CM nightlies for a few years now and I must say that the CM 11 nightlies have been the worst type I have ever used. They are riddled with bugs and setting up the ROM for first use is a nightmare especially regarding SuperSU. The performance of the app is terrible and I am talking basic use of the ROM. Swiping from screen to screen and app to app (graphics wise) is extremely laggy and majorly puts you off from the ROM.
    The "deep-sleep" bug where your phone go's into a deep sleep and is only wakeable by restarting is a major fact why I have actually stopped using CM all-together. That paticular bug has been around for ever and still no fix.
    I have now installed stock rom and rooted it. Absolutely no issues! Performance is great from the phone itself and responsiveness of apps is fantastic! And I don't even miss the CM features as they were pretty basic anyway. I can live without them!
    Either install ParanoidAndroid or go back to stock as CM isn't worth it anymore.
    I won't be returning to CM unfortunately. But just thought I'd post this as I have recently been very disappointed by my once favourite ROM maker.

    • Wesley Modderkolk

      As you are using a Nexus device I'd see no point to try a custom ROM. Just root it and use Xposed Framework for the stuff you want.

      But experienced similar issues on my SGS2, although with Kitkat it really is starting to show it's age, performance and stability of CM was far worse than OmniROM is.

      • J. Martin

        Except Xposed is a massive security hole and incompatible with ART. Also module compatibility is flaky, buggy, and there are no standard compliance rules.

        It's a terrible substitute for a true ROM.

        • KingofPing

          ...except for the fact that it works great for so many folks and mods on top of stock tend to be far more stabl ethan your average custom ROM, you are 100% correct...

        • Wesley Modderkolk

          Agreed, Xposed can have it's issues and ART incompatibility is an issue. However, running Xposed on my 2013 N7 has shown to be a much, much better experience than I ever had running custom ROMs on my GSG2

    • Android Developer

      You can try out OmniRom, which is supposed to be an alternative.

      • Alberto Blasi

        And which works very well i might add. At least on my Find 5.

        • Firmino

          Very stable here too, nexus 4.

    • fredd

      U should Learn how to use your device before writing a crap STORY and blaming cyanogen for your user error . find a ROM that doesn't have CM code in it somewhere ... Without cyanogen your favorite bullshit ROM would have never exist bro.. ;)

      • Brandon Smith

        Ew, what a bland mindset. Things can always get better. CM was king when there weren't a lot of professional ROMs but now we have Omni, AOKP, ParanoidAndroid, MIUI, and more. Cyanogen can't put out buggy software and expect people to use it.

        • Dylan K

          You do realize most of these roms are based on cyanogenmod...

          • Brandon Smith

            Yes and they're all based on AOSP so why not use that? It doesn't matter who's based on who; what matters is which ROM is stable and adds features that fit the user.

          • Firmino

            Not OmniRom.

          • Barnassey

            Incorrect Ominrom, PA, AOKP and MIUI do not use ANY CM rom code anymore.

          • IamTheFij

            Well, they don't use CM as a base any more. They all share some feature as sometimes devs will submit patches to multiple projects or fixes are cherry picked. If they really didn't use any of the same code that'd be a waste of open source. Why do something someone else has already done for you when you could spend your time better elsewhere?

          • mrjayviper

            I see cm-enabled in the devices I'm interested in on the aokp website. PA legacy (the "official" PA for non-nexus devices) uses cm kernel where possible (talking about sony yuga)

          • KingofPing

            "You do realize most of these roms are based on cyanogenmod..."

            Nope. They aren't. Try again.

    • mistercow4u

      You're using a nightly which is clearly stated that there is a high probability of bugs. Try a one of the milestone or stable versions.

      • R.A.R.STAR

        Yes, but c'mon... this far into nightlies we don't expect TOO many bugs.
        Current noticeable bugs:
        - DeepSleep (cannot wake device. volume/power key unresponsive)
        - Wifi issues
        - Constant reboots
        - SuperSU does NOT like CM11 for some reason. Weird shit happening all the time with it.
        - Visual/Graphic Lags (between switching apps - yes it does!)
        - Battery Issues
        - Trebuchet, doubt it will ever be completed. Currently unusable.

        So, your comment is invalid.

        • mistercow4u

          They're nightlies. Not much QC on any changes that are implemented. Bugs should always be expected.

        • Crispin Swickard

          The reboots do happen now, and again depending on they build. That was the biggest issue I have experienced, and on some builds I have ran for a couple weeks without a single reboot, or other issue.

        • Arthur Dent

          "- Trebuchet, doubt it will ever be completed. Currently unusable"

          I've never used Trebuchet on CM installs. I always install Nova immediately.

      • hp420

        PA nightlies are nothing like this, and their development team is a fraction the size of CM's. No excuses.

    • Christopher Mason

      Yes as a former cm user on the Galaxy Tab 2 have to agree. Cm11 is the most HORRIBLE cm release I have ever flashed. I tried to tell myself the cm team would fix the bugs, but I decided that I had been going into deep sleep long enough. Switched to AOSPA.

    • hp420

      PA and AOSP factory images, FTW!!

    • usaff22

      It's because they use CAF commits from the Code Aurora Forums. They are usually much more bleeding edge, but also MUCH less stable than stock ROMs. One of the reasons why franco has stopped supporting CM with his kernel - CM introduces too many commits to be compatible with his kernel.

    • KingofPing

      Stock + Xposed seems to be the way to go nowadays if you're looking for stability.

      • Arthur Dent

        Hell yes. Stock + Xposed FTW!

    • h4rr4r

      Why are you running nightlies?
      They are not for production use.

    • phil

      What a load of tripe. I'm on cm11 nightlys and they are very stable indeed. The biggest plus is battery life which for me is at very least double that of stock. I've tried closed axons which do the same and more but battery life is still a poor stock.

    • Cuvis

      Err... You do know what "nightly" means, right? If you want to live on the bleeding edge, dealing with issues like that are part of the territory. Personally, I've been sticking with milestone builds, and I have no complaints.

  • Android Developer

    I preferred Cid when it was on CM9 . Ever since CM10 it looked really weird.
    I prefer this new logo over the new Cid logo.

    • WitnessG

      I think the newer Cid looks a lot better. They made it flatter and so it looks cleaner imo.

        i'm talking about the old one, which is actually android with a skateboard.

        • Luxferro

          I don't think that one was ever referred to as Cid.

          • Henrique Persechini

            cid and the android-android are both terrible mascots

          • hp420

            The blue skateboard bugdroid was awesome!! That's the original logo, so I think I'll always have a special place for it since that was my first taste into android flashing, modding, coding, etc.

          • Android Developer

            I stand corrected: I prefer the old logo than the one with Cid.

    • Maranello Santiago

      That boot ani was cool though.

    I was just getting to like Cid! Just kidding. I don't really care.

  • Daniel L.

    I just noticed this...

    • Josh

      I thought it looked familiar!

    • Kevin Vesga

      Interesting. BTW the Cyanogen logo also resembles the Gradle logo.

    I was going to say this in a much more rude manner until I read this sentence, sums it up nicely

  • hp420

    I love the new logo!! I wish they'd integrate the old blue bugdroid in some way, though. I used to love that one!!

  • GraveUypo

    cyd sucked. the new logo is better.

  • Testraindrop

    So Open Source has the smallest part in their logo... go figure...

  • wahwah

    Well, to me its just as crayy as the last one. However, they really should be focusing on the miriads of bugs they've introduced into the code andxresokving them before they worry about adthetics. This is just silly talk, and quite a shame.
