    I'm running the official Android 2.3.3 update for my HTC Desire Z, and despite all the buzz, I can't seem to find where to activate my screen off animation. My phone is unrooted, but I'm pretty sure the animation was part of the stock update. I'm using WidgetLocker and Launcher Pro, but I don't think either contribute to my several missing Gingerbread features, like the keyboard. (My soft keyboard was exactly the same in theme and feel and touch to 2.2 Froyo)

    Am I wrong? Or is there a special setting I'll need to activate first? Or do I need to do a hard reset?

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Which screen off animation? The one that looks like an older TV switching itself off?

    Unfortunately, I don't think that was part of the release, it certainly wasn't when my Desire HD was upgraded to Gingerbread anyway so I presume the Desire Z will be the same :(.

    I think only nexus phones and rooted phones get it.

    Yes, I was referring to the old TV CRT animation. So other phone users won't get it unless we're rooted? That's no good... Not even the improved keyboard that google OFFICIALLY advertised up the sky? I thought the official update rwn pretty much the same for most phones...

    Thanks for the info guys.

    You can get the keyboard, but yeah, you need to be rooted to get the CRT animation.

    Thanks El Presidente. Turns out one of my multi-lingual keyboard app (CedIME) was already imitating the gingerbread layout. But thanks so much for the link!
