This is for ANY VERSION. It will actually work on any phone on any custom rom.

One of the first things I do when I install a new rom is make my transition animations faster. It just gives the phone an overall faster feel to it. This is a really old trick, even used by some apps. I've made a script so that you guys can easily do the same.

Fast (my personal preference): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11695745/hasteFast.sh

Faster (you'll pretty much see no animation at all): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11695745/hasteFastest.sh

Stock: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11695745/hasteStock.sh

These are scripts. Execute them as you would any other script. For instance, using terminal emulator, you could type:

Code:
su<br />
sh /sdcard/hasteFast.sh
Your phone will automatically reboot, don't be alarmed.

Enjoy!

Is this similar to what spare parts does
yup, it is in fact exactly what spare parts does, except that spare parts has only one level faster than stock, i have two here. I don't expect all too many people to use the Faster one that I posted though, but just incase there are any people who care entirely about speed to the point where they will sacrifice animations entirely.

Once you run the script is it permanent or does it need to be run on boot. I would likely use script manager to install it.

Also I remember on the blur roms if you enabled faster in spare parts you lost the crt animation. Does that happen with this script?

Thanks for all the extras!

There's two types of animations- window and transition. Changing window will break crt, but this script only changes transition speed, so fortunately it won't break anything. Changes will be persistent until your next data wipe.

This was one of my main complaints with my phone. I tried this on SSM v3. I installed Fastest and had to turn off the transitions in Spare Parts to make mine work. Nice! Even faster than on CM7.

I have fast set for both in spare parts. CRT anims still work correctly. Nice zip dxc

these scripts are now updated to also affect window animation speed, based on BMc08GT's observation that on MIUI, changing window animation speed does not break anything.

I use spare parts to make mine faster, have for about a yr now.. Does this really do anything different than that?
no not unless you want the fastest speed which isn't offered by spare parts

So how is the "fastest" script any faster then having animations turned off in spare parts?

I couldnt install the fast script using Term. emulator. It said "cannot open hastefast.sh" but I got it to install using Script manager, and ran as root. Rebooted and I guess it's working, transitions seem a bit faster. Great scripts man, I love all of your work.

EDIT: wow, nevermind. I had a typo in my Term. emulator, thats why I couldnt get it to run, lol. Good script man!

fastest sux, it just leaves a black gap in between transitions.

Run this after 'su' in a terminal
sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db "replace into "system" values(27,'transition_animation_scale','0.5')"; sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db "replace into "system" values(26,'window_animation_scale','0.5')"; reboot;
