Makes Android have an Old TV effect (CRT Animation)
Old TV effect when turn on/turn off android screen maybe is not a new thing but still it`s worth to know how to make it.
Here`s some video how this effect works.
- Root Android Phone
- Installed Java Runtime Environment
- Download and extract apktool-windows
- Download and extract apktool.jar
- Download and install RootExplorer
- Placed extract files from apktool-install-windows-r04-brut1.tar.bz2 and apktool1.4.1.tar.bz2 in same folder(ex: c:\apktool).

apktool d -f framework-res.apk
Extract Folder with name framework-res will create inside apktool folder
- using windows explorer, go to res/values/
- Find bools.xml, then open using notepad/notepad++/whatever
- back to command prompt, we need to recompile the framework-res file
apktool b -f framework-res
2 folder will create dist and build, the compile result is in build folder
- Go to build folder and copy resources.arsc
- Back to apktool folder and open framework-res.apk using winrar/7zip, paste resources.arsc in framework-res.apk root
- Copy framework-res.apk and overwrite framework-res.apk in /system/framework using RootExplorer
