Download: Gingerbread CRT Screen-off Animation for DROID X and 2 (Updated)

YouTube Preview Image

Many of you noticed that that CRT-esque screen-off animation from the Nexus S and stock Gingerbread (Android 2.3) was missing from the leaked builds on the DROID X and 2 and wondered how to get it.  It’s now available below, although you’ll need to run a few adb commands to get it.

Instructions:

*Note* – This will likely not work on anything but Gingerbread.  I would not try to flash this on a 2.2 ROM.

*Note 2* – I have not tested this on a DROID2, just assumed it would work.  Be careful D2 owners.

UPDATE:  There is now a simple .zip file that can be flashed in Clockwork.  [Download]

1.  CREATE A BACKUP FIRST.
2.  Download this file to your computer:  framework-res_CRT_ENABLE.apk
3.  Rename it to framework-res.apk and place in your SDK/Tools folder.
4.  Connect your phone and run the following commands in adb:

adb remount
adb push framework-res.apk /data/local/tmp/framework-res.apk
adb shell
su
stop
rm /system/framework/framework-res.apk
cp /data/local/tmp/framework-res.apk /system/framework/
rm /data/local/tmp/framework-res.apk
reboot

5.  Your phone will reboot and with CRT screen-off set to “Go!”

Full support can be found at this XDA thread.

Cheers Max and Droidzfx!

    Flashed the .zip file on my DX with Gingerbread, using D2 Bootstrap.  Now, I’m boot-looping.  Tried clearing data and cache.  Any other ideas before I ADP all over again?

    Im running the latest gingerbread build on my droid x

    What exactly do I have to do with the new updated .zip file? I tried installing it through clockwork and I had a bootloop. Any step by step help?

      I installed the .zip on my pre-rooted X (.602 Gingerbread) and it bootlooped too. Really really glad I did a backup first! (I thought nah, screw it but changed my mind at the last minute). THAT was a close one!

  • garrett
