Hi everyone,

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 with disabling unlock carousel animation. It is for Sense 3.0 (Evo 3D of course) and S-OFF root users, I'm using it fine with latest Leedroid ROM. Flash the zip file and it should be all right. You should make a nandroid backup just in case. And please, hit the thanks button after

What are the odds this works with 3.5?

I hate this in Sense 3.0. It's neat, okay, but every time I wanna switch very fast between home screens, I end up having to wait 3-5 seconds until I get where I want... -.-

Is it 100% compatible with LeeDrOiD? I see the .zip contains the Rosie.apk, which is what LeeDrOiD Tweaks tinker with... but perhaps I'm wrong.

I'll try it later today, gotta charge & NANdroid first

Sense 3.5 has a new Rosie app, I believe, so... The odds are quite small :P

On HTC Evo 3D stock rom with sense 3.0 android 2.3.4, it boots up, but doesn't get past the rogers splash screen.. any tips?

It acts like its already booted because it goes to sleep and turns off the screen, and when I click the sleep button, it awakes but stays at the rogers splash while the capacitive lights light up

EDIT: If this helps at all I installed it via CWM 4.0.1.4 with revolutionary root and s-off

Now it actually boots, but it won't let me go to the home screen, only to applications that I've set on the lockscreen.

EDIT: Yea please be aware anyone wanting to flash this on stock sense 3.0, 2.3.4 android, it won't work.

Thanks for the heads up, I've updated the OP that I tried with Leedroid ROM, it is possible that more than one version is necessary for different builds. Can you try deleting Rosie.odex from /system/app and restart?

Yup I'll try that right now!

EDIT: How am I able to get access to the system directory? I looked through the directory after mounting the phone to my computer but then realised I'm just browsing my SD Card. I can't use an in phone file explorer because I can't access the market/home screen.
Thanks!

You need to connect to your phone through your PC with adb then.However, it might just be easier to restore your backup and delete with Root Explorer. Here is the adb route if you feel like trying:

adb shell mount -o remount,rw,codepage=utf8,vfat,xattr,check=no /dev/stl5 /system
adb shell
cd /system/app
rm Rosie.odex
exit
