Intro
First of all, this is not a module

I'm trying to port Gingerbread's TV screen on/off animation to Froyo. Those f**ckin cool animations are the only reason for me to use GB!. I'm happy with Froyo, as everything works, and smoother feelings.

Progress
- Screen on : Good.
- Screen off : Good.
- Animation when screen timed out : Good.


Release
May 27th, FroyoBeam source is pushed to my github : https://github.com/doixanh/X8Features


Notice
We (the X8 users) spent some time testing the animations in my FroyoBread, and it seems to be good. I modified CM6 source, so it may not compatible with some ROMs. If the compilation fails, check inside the published source and take the lines around "dx" to your ROM's source.


More notice
0. This is a work-in-progress. I don't care that it's on xda-news or not. This is my attempt to satisfy my need (GB animations on Froyo). And I saw somebody saying it should be finished before being posted on xda-news. Did you fully read the news?
Quote:

This hasn’t been released yet, due to the developer wanting to make sure it works perfectly, and he has kindly asked that you do not ask when it will be released

1. This mod should be compatible with most devices
2. These animations cannot be packaged as an update.zip, because
3. Lots of things are modified inside the CM6 source, not modding xml files and so on, and
4. The "release" that I mentioned will be a source release, and is intended to be used by ROM builders.
5. End-users will have to wait for their ROM builders to rebuild the ROM with patched source.
6. My FroyoBread ROM is built with personal purpose, and for experimenting my source code modifications.

Enjoy, ROM builders and users

Are you going to make one specific animation, or are you getting a few of them? Or are there even multiple to choose from?

Also: is it a script that runs some animation files? What are these, gifs, mpgs, avis? Because we could create additional ones and simply replace the animations within the script (if it works like that).

I don't consider my post spam. I'd like to prepare new animations (if I'm able to prepare them in the output format), so I'm asking specific questions.

This is stock screen on/off animation from gingerbread. You can see the clip. It's nothing to do with new animation or output format.

It's hard-coded inside android source.

Oh, I see. I simply didn't know how it works And I believed that it is still based on some graphic files.

Well then, good luck porting it
