Android being open source in nature has provided us with tons of customisation and personalisation features. And if you are using a rooted android device then there is probably nothing that you can’t customize. Many of the android users just love some aspects of a phone but you can’t get all the features of a phone to some another. Or can you? Here in this tutorial, we will be discussing one such customisation feature which you can integrate into your Android smartphones.
Some devices like the Nexus 5, Sony Xperia Z3 and LG G3 have awesome lock animations or, as many people say screen-off animation. And it is very simple to get the same on almost all the Android devices.
What will you need to Change the screen off animation:
- Rooted android device. (Check out how to root your android device).
- Xposed Framework (Xposed is a framework for modules that can change the behavior of the system and apps without actually changing any of the system files or existing apks).
How to change the screen off animation:
Step 1: First of all you need to download and install Xposed installer on your rooted Android smartphone.
(You can grab Xposed Framework from this website. Choose Xposed Installer in the ‘select a page’ drop down list.)
Step 2: Now you will need to go to the Framework menu and tap on Install/Update. You will get a warning before installing, just tap on OK and proceed.
Step 3: Grant Superuser request to the app and the installation will be done. Reboot the device and you’re good to go.
Step 4: Now in the download option in the Xposed application, search for “ScreenOffAnimation”.
Step 5: Download and install this module. In the Xposed app you need to go to the Modules option and select the ScreenOffAnimation module.
Step 6: Reboot your device for the last time for everything to work.
In screen off animation you have multiple options for screen off animation like the one in Nexus 5 and other fancy animations like CRT and fading tiles too.
Note: Xposed may not be currently supported on your device. So in case you are seeing a message that says so, you might have to wait.
