[MOD] Disable Carousel Animation in Sense 3.0 & 3.5 - Custom and Stock 2.17 ROMs
This one took a bit too long to pull it off, but here it is.. As the title suggests it disables the Sense carousel animation (the quick rotation of all home screens) when you flick your finger quickly. Please don't confuse it with disabling unlock carousel animation. It is for Sense 3.0&3.5 (Evo 3D of course) and S-OFF root users, currently it should be working fine with InfectedROM Sense 3.0 & 3.5(reported compatible with several others) and also Stock 2.17. Flash the correct zip file (infecteds3 is Sense 3.0 and infecteds35 is 3.5 and stock217 is Stock 2.17) and test. You should make a nandroid backup just in case. And please, hit the thanks button after
ps: I'm a GSM user and I have no way to test this other than your feedback, so please be gentle in your comments I will update the compatibility info according to your posts.
Anyone else noticed the 10-20% transparent app drawer? I think it's a sexy helpful mod. Me and my manly hands would always unintentionally start up the carousel and it never lands on the right page. Lol.
OP, is it possible you could also put up the how-to, many users here have either already themed, or HEAVILY modified rosie's, like the one in leedroid tweaks (with the smooth scroll mods). For instance I use that rosie with "phone" text removed and custom icons and m10 edits, so rather than try to build in those tweaks to your rosie, I'd like to try building YOUR tweak to my rosie.
This animation made me switch to a different launcher (Go Launcher EX), and I'm now far too used to that launcher to go back to Sense. But I'm glad to see that someone has done this mod. The carousel was designed to "impress" tech journalists looking at the phone for the first time, but it is not practical at all.
