Save Your Eyes; Darken Your Desire HD’s Power Down Animation

Are you a Desire HD owner who’s grown tired of the bright colors of the stock power down animation? If so, XDA forum member tigcf has created just the modification for you. While the htc logo has been retained, the bright splash screen has been replaced with black in this release.

In the words of the developer:

I’ve made a dark downanimation.zip to replace the stock one from HTC. It’s like the original one, but on dark background, to go with the dark splash screen and bootanimation that’s floating around in the ARHD rom thread. Tested in my Desire HD (480×800). Don’t know if someone else had already made this, but I couldn’t find any…

Open root explorer and paste the downanimation.zip to /system/customize/resource. Then define permissions to rw-r–r–.

Feel free to use it and comment on it! If someone knows how to make things like this flashable and wants to do so, please do!

This surely sounds appetizing to all of the DHD owners out there, so be sure to continue on to the modification thread to get your fix.
