    My phone rebooted by itself yesterday and when it turned back on I noticed that when the screen shuts off I get an animation of a TV shutting off. I can't figure out how to get rid of that or why it started doing that all of a sudden. Any suggestions? I'm running MeanROM and anthrax kernel.

    Look in the root forum, because a normal EVO3D doesn't do this

    IIRC, MeanRom has a zip in the /meanrom folder of your SD card that will remove the CRT animation. You would just flash that in recovery and it should go away.

    BTW, thread was moved.

    The folder contains:

    green-boot-down-anim.zip
    make-leedroid-beats-compatible.zip
    remove-beats.zip
    spinning-carousel-4x4.zip
    spinning-carousel-4x5.zip
    sprint-zone-for-star-2.zip
    sprintTV.zip
    standard-4x4-rosie.zip
    stock-kernel.zip
    stock-lock-ring.zip
    stock-status-bar.zip
    stock-swype-EN-ES.zip
    volume-rocker-wake.zip

    it doesn't look like any of those will remove that animation.

    Ok, I found out how to do it.

    First, make a NANDroid, in case something goes wrong (Always make a nandroid before modifying /system files)

    Download ES File Explorer, or any other app that is a root explorer. Then go to the /system folder and open build.prop.

    In build.prop, you will change this line:

    Code (Text):
    1. debug.sf.hw=1
    to
    Code (Text):
    1. debug.sf.hw=0
    Then save/reboot

    That disables CRT.

    I don't see that line on my build.prop file. I did a Google search for debug.sf.hw=1 to see if it might be somewhere else and my build.prop file doesn't look anything like the ones other people have.

    I have ROM Toolbox Pro but I couldn't find it in the Editor in there either.

    :(

    Ok, what version of MeanROM are you running? It'll say it in Settings > About Phone > Software Information. I can see if I can find a copy of it and try going through it's build.prop to see where it is in that ROM.

    Or...you can flash the new MeanROM. It doesn't appear to have the CRT animation in it. <-- Probably the easiest/quickest way of doing it

    Or you can contact the developer for MeanROM, I'm sure he could tell you how to disable it. Unfortunately, he doesn't have an Android Forums account that I know of, so you would have to register at XDA to PM him. xda-developers - View Profile: mikeyxda

    I was told MeanROM doesn't have the CRT animation so I had to reflash. The animation was still there after the phone restarted but I had to reflash the Anthrax kernel because WiFi wasn't working, after it restarted from that the animation was gone. All is good now :)
