I think I figured it out. I think my RADIO is too old, and I find a new one, Vision_Radio_18.104.22.168_26.13.04.19
After reflash, I constantly got this "com.android.phone app is dead" message. But it disappeared after reboot. I think you should add a note in your OP to let people upgrade their RADIO.

How to turn off animation?
This phone is really old. I think it would feel better if I can turn off all the animation effect. But I look through the Settings, but I could not find a way to turn off the animation. I remember CM has a customization section that would allow users to control the animations.
