I downloaded the necessary files. I can't get the first part to work.

"Open Command Prompt (or Terminal) window in DX2-CRT Animation.apk's location.

Can you explain this step more? I tried right-clicking...

So make a folder with the apk and any other files required. Then, go into that folder and hold down shift and then right click. You'll see a choice of open command here. Voila , into the cmd prompt that he's talking about.

    For those of you who don't know exactly what the CRT animation is, it is the animation that Gingerbread uses when you press the power button and the screen gives a neat power off effect.

    Well I wanted this. A lot. So I went out and did it. Just enabled it, and it looks gorgeous on my phone.

    Please note, that you must be rooted in order to use this, and on Gingerbread.

    It is a straightforward process.
    PLEASE NOTE THIS REQUIRES ADB AND JAVA TO BE INSTALLED

    A good idea to nandroid before this, as if something goes wrong it can screw up a lot of things.


    Installation 1:
    Download DX2-CRT-Animation.zip
    Copy to sdcard
    Flash in CWR

    BIG THANKS TO p3droid FOR PACKAGING AS A ZIP

    Installation 2 (the complicated, make you feel cooler, hardcore, original way):
    This is modifying your framework-res so some themes may not work any longer.
    Instructions:
    []Have phone plugged into computer, and in Charge Mode.

    []Download DX2-CRT-Animation.apk

    []Open Command Prompt (or Terminal) window in DX2-CRT-Animation.apk's location. (This can be accomplished by shift clicking on the folder where this resides, and clicking open command prompt here).

    []Push files onto the phone
    Code:
    adb push DX2-CRT-Animation.apk /data/local/tmp/framework-res.apk

    []Get shell access
    Code:
    adb shell
    su
    ---When you enter this, make sure your phone is awake, as a Super User access allow/deny will pop up. Allow it.
    In command prompt, you should now have a #.

    []Remove and copy files to proper location, reboot
    Code:
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/stl9 /system
    stop
    rm /system/framework/framework-res.apk
    cp /data/local/tmp/framework-res.apk /system/framework/
    rm /data/local/tmp/framework-res.apk
    reboot


    Whats next:
    -Reverse CRT animation (hopefully!!!)


    Any input is appreciated.
    I am new to this. Give me your input, and help me get better.

    I'm sure you can find some around. In fact, all this is a simple bools.xml edit in framework-res. You could even do it yourself if needed.

    On the topic of CRT, I have been working on an ON/OFF CRT animation, but this is a lot more than xml edits. This relies on services.jar, and implementation and editing of different values and methods. It doesn't cause bootloop but I am puzzled as to why I am getting no animation (no crt or fade animation, instant off). Automatic brightness still works, but I don't know...I will try a few more things.

    Just a quick update on whats happening next.
