    Okay, I don't know about you guys but I was disappointed that Gingerbread for the DX didn't have the screen off animation. So, here is how you enable it!

    THIS IS FOR THE GINGERBREAD LEAK, NOT FROYO
    Step 0. Make a backup
    Step 1. Download this file to your computer: http://bit.ly/gj5a7H
    Step 2. Connect your phone via adb.
    Step 3. Do the following commands:
    UPDATE: If you'd rather just flash a .zip in CWM... http://bit.ly/gNdk4E

    & enjoy your animation!

    Honestly, I am not sure if this would work for the Droid 2, since the framework-res.apk files may not be identical between the builds. However, if you are familiar with ADB and can extract the original framework-res.apk and moto-res.apk from your system/framework folder, you can create your own modified framework-res.apk using the instructions from the following link:

    Enable electronBeam Animation

    You will need APK manager and an ADB setup to perform this process. The entire process literally takes less than 10 minutes, and is a great opportunity to brush up on your ADB experience. This process will definitely work for the Droid 2, though I cannot confirm the files posted here will work.

    You rock

    Seriously, You rule.

    First thing I checked for when I heard about the gingerbread leak, was whether it had this option. Thankfully someone worked this in.



    Now my only hope is that framework themers automatically build this in, so that I don't have to manually add this every time I find a theme I like.


    Thanks again for the awesome find/post!

    I flashed this on my Droid 2 and there were several other areas where it affected framework such as a messed up lockscreen and some white on white text. The screen off animation worked great though. I look forward to someone hopefully porting this over to Droid 2.
