To disable rotation animations:
Settings>>Display settings>>Rotation animation (uncheck)

Not sure what "mirrored effect" you're seeing. Think you could get lucky enough with the timing of a screenshot to grab it?
-Long-press power, select screenshot
-Immediately short-press power to lock screen
-Press home key to wake screen
-<whatever you do to see this effect>
If you get the timing right, you can grab a screenshot of what you are seeing.

This is how I want the dock to always be, I just haven't figured out how to set this as my default. I make the dock I want appear by kind of flicking the original one away, but I would like to disable the first one always or at least find out why it behaves this way.

Question Select Wallpaper From menu

Jerry,

I can't imagine any other rom running on my phone.. thank you for all of the hard work you and everyone else has put into BACKside!

I was wondering if I could make a request for the next build? Not sure if it's possible or not, but my idea was to have the Wallpaper menu more customizable. The way it is now, when you tap on Wallpaper from the "Select wallpaper from" menu there is a list of different options to use to load wallpapers on the phone. Id like to request that there be options to choose what options are showing up on that list. So it would look kind of like:

[ ] CyanogenMod Wallpapers
[ ] Live wallpapers
[ ] No Wallpaper
[X] QuickPic wallpaper
[ ] Wallpaper gallery
[X] Wallpaper Wizardrii

What that would do is show QuickPic Wallpaper and Wallpaper Wizardrii on the list and hide the others. Is this possible? If so, I think this would look much cleaner and be a great addition to BACKside.

The way those menus work is through intents, which is pretty much how everything on Android works. An app has the ability to do something, and registers and intent a receiver for it. So for example, any app that has the ability to change wallpapers has an intent and receiver listed in it's manifest.xml file. Once you attempt to change the wallpaper, those apps show up in the list.

Attempting to hack this functionality could have unintended results. Not sure if that's a can of worms worth opening.

I know I've seen it, I even bookmarked it at one time, but now I can't find it..


How in the world do you change the bootanimation to one of the included ones?

TIA...

I can't find any info on it in this thread either... the forum search feature didn't turn up anything useful.

Can anyone provide a step by step (maybe with images?) on how to change the boot animation? I'm currently using ES File Explorer and am looking for the ICS boot animation (dunno where to get one that would work with the OpV). Anyone have a link for download?

Many thanks in advance!

menu-settings-cyanogenmod settings-interface-bottom three options. I have a pretty big collection of boot animations, I know I have the ICS animation. I'll dig into it and see if I find it...

Thanks for the link!!

And, my humble apologies for not being clear in my OP. I did use those settings you mention above, but the animation did not change. This is what I did:

Downloaded a test animation and placed it in \sdcard\APK Files

Went in with ES File Explorer and changed the name of the zip file to bootanimation.zip (it was BootanimationSomethingOrOther.zip).

Went into the CyanogenMod settings you mentioned above and pointed it to \sdcard\APK Files\bootanimation.zip. I saw the message saying something about it being moved.

Tapped on Preview bootanimation and saw the default one Jerry has added.

What did I do wrong?

Nothing. Reboot, you should see the one you had set.

The mirror reflection is part of ADW EX, sounds like he has both installed.

It's the AprilFools code change. Delete the /system/media/AprilFools.zip file, and your bootanimations will work again.

I changed the code in bootanimation.cpp to check for the AprilFools.zip first, and play it if it exists. It then checks to see if you've copied a custom bootanimation, and then checks data/local, then system/media, and if it still hasn't found one it will play the masked android logo bootanimation.

Just delete the AprilFools.zip and all should be fine.

BTW- I did add another feature to BACKside-IHO, double tap home key to launch an app/activity. I didn't put info about it in the changelog because it's doesn't work very well. I have to rapidly press my home key to get it to work, more than two times. Please let me know if it works for you, it could just be my home key is getting worn out.

I changed it back to its original name and tried the process again. This time I looked to make sure it was being moved and I don't see it. Isn't it supposed to be moved to \system\media, or somewhere else?

Thanks heaps for your patience!

No, it gets stored in /data/data/com.cyanogenmod.cmbootanimation/files/

Sorry the April Fools extended to the 2nd.

You have to use a root capable file manager, and mount system r/w (read/write). Standard for any file in the system folder.

It's a good joke, though. It almost got me, but I remember you mentioning having plans for this release back in January.

Ok, now it's working!

What I did wrong.. in ES File Explorer I do have Root Explorer checked, but forgot to check the box directly under it for Mount File System. Once I ticked that box I was able to delete the April Fools anim and move the ICS one.

Thanks guys!!!!!!

Hey everyone. I just updated to the latest version but I'm having an issue.

When I boot up, I get a "snow" screen instead of an actual boot animation. The phone eventually loads though...

This is something I'm capable of getting vanilla BACKside-IHO to do, I originally discovered it by accident and then I realized I liked the appearance of this more. I do have my list of required apps installed. Also, thanks for the recommendation on removing ICS rotation animations, I haven't had any freezing since I did that.

That's exactly how I have things set up, with swipe up action to show the hidden dock. Been using that setup for months.

I didn't know that, I've been using ADW EX since the 10 sale on the market.

How would you make that hidden dock be the default one? Not that it is terribly difficult to swipe up to remove the one I don't like but it'd be nice if all I saw was that pretty mirrored effect.

Would I still have to do the swipe up to show the dock I want? (If I were to do what you recommended earlier which was 'None (expanded dock)') I can live with this one easier, and I am very glad I am not having those freezing issues anymore, that was too irritating. I wouldn't use any other ROM out there (I started with aosp when I first got the phone).

Yes, afaik there is no way to keep the hidden dock visible at all times, so you have to swipe up when you want it.

::Edit:: Found it!

But where are the boot animations located at after you hit the "choose boot animation" button?

The extra ones I added are in /system/media

If you downloaded them on your phone they should be in /sdcard/download

If you put them on your sdcard, they should be in /sdcard

Edit: I made a quick video to show you how to select from either the sdcard or /system/media:

Just messing around a little bit after flashing, and another great build Jerry.

I liked the boot animation. When you mentioned a few days before Aprils 1st that would be your release date, I was expecting something... Would have loved to see and hear the sizzle / smoke one.

Updated the Blue Marble theme.

No, he's 17 and doesn't really talk that way, it was just for comedic effect.

Is anyone else having troubles w/Netflix or Plex. The newer builds i notice that Netflix is extremely choppy and the video/audio lose sync often, but previous builds worked great. Also w/Plex, i get audio, but no video.

Thanks.

There haven't been any changes to video playback in a long time in the code base. Netflix has pushed code in the past that prevents proper playback, and usually xda developers hack it within a few days. Check their thread on it.
