New CyanogenMod 12 boot animation turns night into day
If you needed a reminder that the folks at Cyanogen are working hard toward a stable release of the next version of their CyanogenMod OS, the nightlies stream of CM12 is seeing a new boot animation on devices.
While there is beauty in simplicity, the new CyanogenMod 12 nightlies boot animation rocks a simple animation based around their blue robo-bug. The biggest change, and likely the hardest part for users to get used to, is the white background of the animation, which we all know can be a serious pain when rebooting a device in the dark.
CyanogenMod 12 nightlies have only been available for a few weeks now, promising to bring the latest release to mainstream CM users soon. As evidenced by the new boot animation, CM12 takes into account the latest design standards of Android Lollipop and Material Design. We’ll leave it to you to decide if the team is embracing Google’s design approach, or shunning it, but we can’t help but notice the similarities in the animation ripple effects.
Of course, if you do not like what you are seeing, be sure to head into the CyanogenMod Theme Showcase app to flash a new boot animation.
