The CyanogenMod team have moved on from their original mascot — a riff on the default Android character “Bugdroid” — and replaced it with this cool looking dude: Cid. He has a very defining and defiant look about him, traits that carry on in the CyanogenMod community.
We chose C.I.D. which is short for Cyanogenmod ID, the common thread that all CyanogenMod users share; each user’s unique place in our community.
CyanogenMod is no small community either, it is installed on over 1.8 million devices, and countless other custom ROMs use parts of CyanogenMod as well. Congrats to them!
