Below are four new android UI animations created by Stale Bread, these will change how things popup and show on screen.
There are two ways to apply new animations first is Metamorph and second is to manualy copy new animations to your android phone.

This should work on ANY 2.1 and 2.2 (apparently it works on 2.3 :) ) android phone!

NOTE If Metamorph fails, you get force closes or boot loops, try to manually add animations!!


- Metamorph (thanks cXhristian from samdroid).

Before morph do a nandroid backup so you can revert if you don't like them, or if anything goes wrong!!!!

Fly In Animations:
Download.

Fold Animations:

Flip Animations:

Download all animations!

Stock Lockscreen animations, flash this if the text "Unlock" has disappeared from your lockscreen (Stock android only, with Sense and other shouldn't be a problem)


How to use animations with Metamorph:
First install Metamorph from Android Market.
Download the animation you wish to have, and place it on the root of SD card.
Start Metamorph and press "Start Checks".
After checks press "Unzip/Extract new theme" then locate the animations zip on SD card.
Metamorph will automatically extract them, when finished extracting a window will popup, press close.
Now just press "Apply all!" and wait for reboot.
Done!


- Manually copy animations

Before doing this do a nandroid backup so you can revert if you don't like them, or if anything goes wrong!!!!

Connect your phone to your PC (USB debuging must be on!)

Download required ADB shell files (users who know how to operate with adb don't need this), and extract them to root of your C disk.

First you need your framework-res.apk, open cmd and copy below code:
Code:
cd c:\Android
Code:
adb pull /system/framework/framework-res.apk c:\Android
This will copy framework-res.apk to C:\Android

Downlad the animation you want from above Metamorph part of the post.
Open the file with compression/decompression program (Winrar, Winzip), and
extract the framework-res where you want.

Open the (pulled from phone) framework-res.apk with Winrar/Winzip and navigate to res/anim (you need to see all sorts of .xml files and leave the window open)

Now open the framework-res (from Metamorph zip)and go to res/anim, select all files within anim folder, drag and drop them to previously left open Winrar/Winzip window, now there are new animations in framework-res.apk, you can close Winrar/Winzip window.

Phone needs to be connected to PC. Enter the below code to cmd to push framework-res.apk back to phone:
Code:
cd c:\Android
Code:
adb remount
Code:
adb push framework-res.apk /system/framework/framework-res.apk
Code:
adb reboot

Hope it works =)

So I'm kind of confused which one I should use so I'm curious which one will work with a rooted Mytouch 3g 1.2 flashed with CM 6.0.0? Is it the Community Hero Mix 4.0? If so they wouldn't flash because my recovery claimed the zips were bad.
