CRT off effect was introduced in the Android 2.3 branch and is one of the most loved feature of Android.

The effect is very smooth in 4.1.2 (Jellybean). The 4.2.x update screws the effect making it very fast to be enjoyable and takes a second or near about to respond.

Fortunately, after searching previous Nexus devices threads and testing various .prop additions, the one below works wonders.
Makes it smooth as the 4.1.x effect.

Before instructions, please make a backup of your current ROM and the build.prop file

Instructions :

Root required to do this.

1. Download any Root explorer from the Play Store, preferably https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tware.explorer

2. Open it, grant SU access and navigate to /system.

3. Navigate to build.prop and long press and click 'Open in Text Editor'.

4. Add this line "debug.sf.electron_frames=1".

Of course without the " " marks

5. Save and Exit.

6. Reboot your device and Voila.

Enjoy your smooth CRT off effect.

Thank you.

I'm on CM10.1 by the way.

Re: [HOW-TO] Make the CRT Effect smooth
Does editing the build.prop disqualify me from ota updates?

Yes, the update will fail due to the file not being original.

You can always restore your original build.prop file.

Re: [HOW-TO] Make the CRT Effect smooth
So basically make a backup copy before modifying.

Re: [HOW-TO] Make the CRT Effect smooth
What I would actually like it's a way to turn off CRT. Guess I'm one of the oddballs. I can't find a setting in PA v3.10 to turn it off. Anyone got a tip on this.

You need to change your Animation Transition to "Off". Its in the developer settings.

Tried disabling all those various speeds under developer options. Didn't work.
