    As you knew, on 3.5.x we cannot lower the system volume to 0 or vib, this is annoying. It broke my Tasker automation tasks.

    I found out and tested this workaround for a week and it seems solves my problem. Hope it can help you, too.

    To set to vibrate even on Ring mode:
    - Go to Alert slider settings, enable Ring
    - Install AutomateIt
    - Create a task like this (Action: silent mode)

    - Done, you can set an automatic trigger for it when you go to work/school, or put a widget on your home screen to trigger it whenever you want.

    To escape from vibrate on Ring mode:
    - Just press vol up key
    OR
    - Using Tasker to automate it

    FAQ:
    [?] Why have to use 2 automation apps?
    - Because Tasker cannot do the first, AutomateIt cannot do the second one and vice versa (or maybe I don't know how to setup yet)

    Nice workaround, thanks for posting! Shouldn't the action be "Set device sound mode to vibrate", though?

    Still hoping they will revert this...
