On cm 10.0.0 I disabled the annoying "display off" "like old CRT" effect, but upgrading to 10.1.2 re-enabled it and I can't find anymore the display animation settings.

Can't find in the settings, couldn't find a new app, no idea where to search.

How can I do that?

    Should be Settings => Display => Screen-off animation. Are you not seeing that option? – eldarerathis Jul 17 '13 at 16:08
  • @eldarerathis exactly. I get brightness, wallpaper, rotation, sleep, daydream, font size and volume rocker wake. – o0'. Jul 17 '13 at 16:15
  • What device, out of curiosity? I'm on a nightly build, not a stable one, but I had thought this setting was merged into the stable branches already. Maybe somehow it got omitted on your particular device's build (though that would be a little odd). – eldarerathis Jul 17 '13 at 16:16
  • Nexus S (I guess that's "crespo"?) – o0'. Jul 17 '13 at 16:45

Apparently, "This is not a user-configurable option right now".

I'm not sure if that's a general Android problem, or a specific cyanogenmod one. Totally clueless about why, of course.


The missing setting was an error in 10.1. It is fixed now.

Go to Settings -> Display -> Screen-off animation
