The Droid Charge, like my own phone the Samsung Stratosphere, does an interesting check when displaying gifs. If you have less than 100MB of RAM (which rarely if ever happens) if will display them as static rather than animated. Therefore I modified libwebcore.so on the Stratosphere to enable them. I asked dwitherell, the developer of the fantastic TweakStock ROM for both the charge and the stratosphere, to include it in his next release of TweakStock, and he asked me if I would make a version for the charge as well. I figured I would release it here to you guys as well, before he releases his next build. It should in theory, work on any charge ROMs but I'm not sure since I don't have a charge to test it with. So here it is, a CWM zip file to give you animated gifs regardless of your available RAM. If any devs wish to use it in their custom ROMs feel free, all I ask is for a nod in my direction.

And I can vouch for the fact that it DOES indeed work :)

So that's for the stock browser? What about making it work for other browsers, such as Dolphin Mini or HD?

it does work with Dolphin HD! It also works with every Reddit app I've used. Anything that relies on libwebcore.so to display web pages will have working gifs.

Thanks a lot! I've been using Firefox as it is the only browser that properly displays animated gifs for me but I would much rather use the stock one.

Opera Mobile supports animated gifs pretty much no matter what.

Can somebody explain why Opera seems to run even faster than it already is after I installed this?
