“The company’s new logo is the vehicle to showcase that brand,” said company in its official blog.

With the new logo, the company seems to bid farewell to its mascot Cid.

CyanogenMod further said, “Choice means personalizing your device to your use cases and tastes. Choice means exercising control over your data and security. Choice means the freedom to select your OS on your mobile devices, and modify it as you see fit.”

The new branding elaborates company’s core principles, which are: customization, security and open source.

CyanogenMod is an aftermarket firmware for a number of cell phones based on the open-source Android operating system. It offers features not found in the official Android based firmwares of vendors.
