    [How To] + [MOD] Custom Transition Animations (UPDATED)

    Watching the same transition animations over and over is boring. You can speed them up with Spare Parts or you can just shut them off entirely within settings. There is, though, a third road: change 'em.

    These are videos of most of the transition animations packs (Drod's rubiX animation and Fab's animation mix have no videos at present).

    Flip

    Bounce

    Fold

    FlyIn


    There are two preferred ways to use these animations:

    1. Add Animations Using Metamorph: should work for most roms. Thanks Haxzamatic!

    Transition Animation MetaMorph Files - Transition Animations MetaMorphs

    Note: there is no current MetaMorph file for Fab's mix (see below).


    2. Manually Add Animations: should work for most roms

    This process will be helpful for those wanting to mix and match animations from the folders. In fact, why don't you create your own mix and post it here so everyone else can appreciate your awesomeness. I'll add new mixes below if they come in.

    1. Simply get ahold of the anim folder with the animations you want to use and the framework-res.apk from the rom you're interested in modifying (/system/framework/framework-res.apk).
    2. Open up the framework-res.apk in 7zip (right click on it, and select "open archive").
    3. Drag the anim folder with the animations (which you can download below) into /res folder in your framework-res.apk. This will replace the files currently in /res/anim.
    4. Exit out of 7zip.
    5. You now need to push the modified framework-res.apk onto the phone. You can do this by placing the modified framework-res.apk in the root sdcard folder, and entering the following into terminal emulator on your phone or using ADB when the sdcard is mounted:

    su
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    cp /sdcard/framework-res.apk /system/framework
    mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    reboot

    If you're using terminal emulator, your phone will probably reboot before you finish re-mounting and/or typing reboot.

    NOTE: This is taken almost wholesale from ronhova on XDA; s/he deserves the credit. Link To Original Post.

    Since this process modifies your rom's framework-res.apk, it obviously won't work with other roms. Translation: don't take the framework you've just modified and try to put it on other roms. IF YOU DO THIS, YOU WILL DIE.

    Animation Files: for manual addition

    Bounce (Video above)

    Flip (Video above)

    Fly In (Video above)

    Fold (Video above)

    Drop In (from Drod's rubiX focused series) (No video)

    Fly In and Flip Mix (from Fab's Apex) (No video)

    If you modify the theme's /res/anim folder, but leave everything else.. yes.


    One other thing I would add, is it's beneficial to zipalign the framework-res folder after modifying it... Shouldn't be a huge performance hit if you don't.. but ...

    Sure, but you CANNOT use the framework files I uploaded; you have to insert the bare animation files into your themed framework using the above procedure.

    Yeah, Flip got hosed. I'm uploading proper versions for both rubiX releases.

    And yes, your phone might very well reboot before you finish remounting/typing reboot. This is normal.

    Good point, Sephtin. If you're running rubiX, you can zipalign your apks by pulling up terminal emulator and typing the following:

    su
    zipalign_apks

    I think Drod said this might cause problems with certain themes, but hopefully it'll be fine with this ... let us know.
