As many people love it as hate it. Those who hate it seem to be even more vocal about it than with the old icon.

So here's your chance to do something about it. I'm holding a competition, you can submit your icon creations to me, and at a later stage we will have a public vote on it !

After that, I don't ever want to hear any of you about the icon again, deal ?

Follow the link to find the rules and how to submit.

I could care less what it looks like it just woks and that's all I need. Keep up the great work and thank you

Nick Hunter commented on 2012-08-29 at 20:38:

prefer the #, needs to be on a slight angle and terminal green on black IMO

Patrick Fallon commented on 2012-08-29 at 20:40:

Am sorry to hear you're receiving a ton of flak about the icon, but on the flip side it shows a lot of people do care about the "brand" of your product and how it's represented.

If you're gonna change it just use the silver S with the blue # overlaid, would look great!

(Nothing wrong with Super Andy though)

Your comments should go the page, I'm not keeping track of them here :) Also, you can suggest things all you want - but unless somebody draws them, it's not going to happen. I can't even draw stick figures myself.

Chainfire commented on 2012-08-29 at 21:15:

There shall be no eyepatches, as this is the sole domain of ChainsDD's Superuser app. It'd be a bad thing to copy that.

Victor commented on 2012-08-29 at 21:46:

If you put a "1" and a "0" in any two of the spaces in the new design (kind of like a binary thing) I'll be ok with I'M JOKING... I fully support your work on many of your pro versions.. icon design flaws and!

Jose Morejon commented on 2012-08-29 at 22:38:

I like the "super" user icon... kinda cool

alan tran commented on 2012-08-29 at 22:49:

Love the new icon, don't change! Many thank for your work!

Michael commented on 2012-08-29 at 22:51:

The hash is for su any nix user knows it... The hash should remain even if the icon is going to change

+Charles Daly +Chainfire eye patch patent wars ^_^

I love the new one. It seems more fationable on my phone screen.

Shaka Huang commented on 2012-08-30 at 00:46:

Love the new icon too, and thanks for your awesome tool !! ^_^

Kayho Kim commented on 2012-08-30 at 08:47:

In the first I hated new icon but now, I love it. The character is so cute

Ajuzt Youngs commented on 2012-08-30 at 09:47:

i better like roundsquares.but its look nice too keep up. :)

Tom Valenzuela commented on 2012-08-30 at 15:09:

Cool about contest but its clear to me those complaining have nothing better to do. The pound symbol is symbolic to root access and anyone who knows better would agree it's a proper icon.

Marcus Ranford commented on 2012-08-30 at 22:40:

You can't please all of the people all of the time ;)

Chainfire commented on 2012-08-31 at 07:36:

Five new contestants have been added ! Check out the updated page !

Max commented on 2012-08-31 at 14:59:

New icon is good, you can't please 'em all

Chainfire commented on 2012-09-02 at 08:26:

Eleven new submissions, bringing the total to 18 !

Scott Sherwin commented on 2012-09-05 at 03:34:

I absolutely love the new fu&@%ng rocks.


Chainfire commented on 2012-09-06 at 09:17:

There are now 97 (!) entries !

Glenn Moses commented on 2012-09-10 at 00:36:

I like the new icon. That, and the app just works. One I set my prefs, I never have to look at it, so it's really no bug deal.

Marcus Ranford commented on 2012-09-10 at 19:24:

So when's the voting open?

Chainfire commented on 2012-09-12 at 13:03:

I think end of next week or so.

Adam Kirby commented on 2012-09-13 at 01:16:

You're the dev, do as you wish as long as it works!!

Max commented on 2012-09-25 at 16:48:

A least your giving them something to do.

Issa Souley commented on 2012-10-04 at 06:51:

You are great Chainfire. Keep up the good work your supersu is the best and it's the only sun I use. I just have one request make the mobile Odin available for the sgh t989 that's the only pro app of yours that I don't have.
