In case you didn’t remember, the CyanogenMod team has started work on version 10.2 (which is the final Android 4.3 Jelly Bean release before the team starts focusing on the KitKat-based CM 11). Nightlies are already on their way to some folks, and it’s been discovered that the team decided to whip up a new boot animation for this major release.

You can find the animation in the YouTube video above, but what you’re looking at is what you’re going to get — something simple, clean, professional, and elegant. It features a rather authoritative photo of Cid, the CyanogenMod mascot, with a clockwise arrow circling it. Beneath that is the “CyanogenMod” text in the always-familiar typeface they like to use. It’s not too flashy, because it’s not supposed to blow your mind.

This is the image that’s going to represent the new, improved, and “official” CyanogenMod every time you boot your phone up. No more skateboarding bugdroids, and no more amateur animations: this is serious business, folks.

We’re not sure when to expect CyanogenMod 10.2 for the masses, but it’s worth noting that the Oppo N1 should have first dibs. The Chinese OEM of said phone is the first to officially support flashing of the custom ROM, and we have a feeling it won’t take much longer for the CM team to deliver the goods to that particular device. Watch the quick flick of the boot animation in the YouTube video above.
