    after the update to gingerbread this morning on my Desire HD, my phone looks like a mash up between 2.2 and 2.3. some things are the same, others changed. And the thing that most disapointed me is the fact that i miss the screen off animation which was in my opinion the nicest improvement to the new android systems. i am wondering whether anyone has a solution to this or if there's someone with the same problem.

    Judging by the date of the video (and on the phone), I would assume that they have a vanilla copy of Gingerbread installed rather than a HTC Sense version of Android. It's probably the case that HTC removed that animation from their Gingerbread update.

    You wouldn't be able to get this on the stock firmware - rooting and installing custom firmware is the only way to get it.

    Gingerbreak seems to be the way to go.

    To be honest, haven't used Gingerbreak yet so no idea how trustworthy it is. I have heard that HTC phones are relatively difficult to brick though.

    I think an unroot option was added to Gingerbreak in the newest version.

    You can only get temp root in GB if you have S-ON, which by default you will have, You need to get S-OFF before you upgrade to GB if you want perm root (unless you install a custom ROM like LeeDrOiD which is already rooted), also I haven't heard anyone say they have bricked their phone by trying to root.

    If somebody had the 2.3 update without s-off, would downgrading back to 2.2 allow you to s-off again?
