Description
First of all, the work is partly based on https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/software/mod-ios-11-animation-t3630402 . Thanks to mizdrake7.
But I did the following modifications:
1. Removed weird flipping effect on View, Dialogue Box...
2. Added iOS style application transition.. (port from MIUI)
3. Some tweaks..

Requirements
1. A working custom recovery (TWRP, CWM..etc)
2. Having basic knowledge on flashing
3. Android System (5.0+), tested on 7.1.2 AEX
4. Be aware that using this mod by your own risk.

Installation
- Simply flash the zip, no need to clean data, cache, etc and reboot
- The mod will create a restore flash zip so feel free to flash!
- The mod only modify framework-res.apk, so If you have a modified framework-res.apk installed it's better to restore first.
- If you have installed mizdrake7's mod, restore your framework-res first before flashing this mod!
- Restore zip should located at /sdcard/vrtheme-backup (same as mizdrake7's)

I dont know which of these touched the framework-res. Im using Flux. Can you try it too? Im on AEX too.

You should disable all overlays before install the mod...probably something like Android System, System UI..etc

Yeah. It looks good. Can you also make the rotating screen transition be more like LineageOS style, like liquid kind of style. AEX has it more like a solid kind if style.

Thanks for your feedback, I will try to work on it :)

Uhm, opening Gboard animation feels a bit sluggish for me. Can you tweak this out a bit too? Thanks.

And btw, how to update to a newer version of this? I will just flash the latest over the old one?

For update: flash vrtheme-restore.zip first then flash the latest one :)

Yeah, I noticed about keyboard.. this will be fixed in next release

Oh great. :) Thanks. Uhm, for substratum users. Flash this tweak first before applying overlays to avoid bootlooping. It works like a charm. Highly recommended.

PS:. Share this on XDA bro.
