I was looking into adding page transitions to my WP7 app using TransitionFrame from Silverlight Toolkit as detailed in this blog post: http://jesseliberty.com/2011/11/29/beautiful-page-transitions-practically-free/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+JesseLiberty-SilverlightGeek+%28Jesse+Liberty+-+Silverlight+Geek%29

I'm not sure how I can replace the RootFrame with TransitionFrame though since it is the bootstrapper that sets up the RootFrame with Caliburn.Micro. Any ideas?

When you inherit from PhoneBootstrapper, you can just override CreatePhoneApplicationFrame and return your custom TransitionFrame :)

Sweet, worked perfectly :)
