Enable Custom Screen On and Off Animations on All ROMs with Xposed

The CRT screen-off animation has been with Android ever since version 2.3 Gingerbread. It’s been tweaked a bit here and then in the time since, but for the most part it’s been the same. Unfortunately for fans looking to modify the feature or incorporate it into ROMs that lack the feature, doing so has always involved modifying system files.

Now through the magic of Xposed Framework, you can do so without making permanent modifications—assuming you already have Xposed installed. This Xposed module, which is aptly called ScreenOffAnimation, comes courtesy of XDA Recognized Developer zst123.

As you would expect from its name, ScreenOffAnimation allows you to set a screen-off animation on devices that don’t natively support the feature. These animations can be customized heavily, including changing both the speed and animation style. You can also define a screen-on animation if you don’t mind a delay when turning on your device. What’s more, you can also enable animation randomization so that you’re never bored when turning on or off your screen.

If you’re running Android 4.0 or greater and you’ve been looking to add or customize your screen on and off animations, head over to the module thread and give ScreenOffAnimation a shot.

Focus is an attractive new app built by XDA members Liam Spradlin and Francisco Franco, the latter being well-known in the forums for his kernels. Focus aims to completely replace your gallery app with some neat tricks, but at a potentially risky time considering that Google has thrown its weight into the photo-organization arena. This is a first draft of the app of course, but we'll pitch it against its main rivals here, namely the popular QuickPic and the aforementioned Google Photos.     The first...
