Personalize your Shutdown Animation
While going through one of the official T-Mobile updates for the HD2, XDA member skoogee discovered that integrated into the operating system was the capability of having a small animation playing whenever you switch your phone off.

You can find the .CAB and the discussion about the topic in the tweak thread along with some additional animation ideas from other users.
