Hey fellas ;
I'm trying to destroy the hideous crt screen off animation from my device on KOT49H build , i'm gonna try to explain what i did step by step
First I pulled the framework-res.apk from system/framework

then i installed it , apktool if framework-res.

then i decompiled it , apktool d framework-res.apk

then i edited , bools.xml entry "animatescreenlights" from false to true (rubbed me a little wrong , everybody said it should be the reverse , true to false but when i opened it , it was false , i checked like 6 times)

then recompiled it using apktool b framework-res framework-res.apk (i had moved the original file before this so no overwriting.)

Copied Meta-inf and android manifest from the original one to the edited one using 7zip

then i signed it using android multi-tool.

and Bootloop.

I actively used these and it used to work on my LG P920.
I used Xblast tools to get rid of the crt off animation , but it wouldn't work for some reason. (I'm not stupid , i activated the module , everything works just not that.)
I repeated these steps from android multi-tool GUI , install , decompile , edit , recompile , copy meta-inf and android manifest to the new one , sign.
Still bootloop.
My JDK is properly set up in the environment variables.
Using , regretfully , Windows 8.1 x64.

Any suggestions ?
