My New Boot Animations
Finally, after months of being MIA and somewhat around in between, I finally have some new releases together. I am still working on some more also so check back for updates.
My old thread containing boot animations is now
but links to the downloads for those animations are included in this thread. In order to minimize confusion and also to give everyone the desired visual before downloading that I know so many of us enjoy previews are included for your ease of selection and enjoyment.
Many thanks go out to LiQuID, Ubrocked, GirLuvsDroid & everyone else who has helped with ideas, testing and promotion. Also, with my newest mods available I'd also just like to shout out a thanks to: cool saber, for his droid does original boot animation. In addition, I now have some fully original boot animations available with a few more to come shortly.
LiQuID Frozen Yogurt Users:
Also, in LiQuID's new release of 1.7 LFY, with each theme color available these boot animations will already be included in the download links for the themes ready to go, so LFY users of 1.7 after its release need NOT download these unless you want to switch them out or you are customizing with a different theme and of course if you want to use them and you are running an older version of LFY. With each preview that you see, in order to download the one you want simply click on the preview and you will automatically be linked to the download for that boo animation.
After downloading, for users that are not already familiar with this you will need to make sure that you rename the boot animation when ready to use to the name bootanimation.zip exactly as I have it spelled there and I do believe that it is case sensitive.
Also, if you are a newly rooted user or are not sure how to replace this I recommend using root explorer - and then follow these steps:
1.Rename file xyz.zip to bootanimation.zip
2.Copy or Move File
3.Go to System/Media
4.Select Read/Write setting
5.Paste and click OK to overwrite(possibly copy this to another directory for a bakup before overwriting or you will lose the bootanimation already in your phone)
6.Long press to generate menu and select permissions
7.Select rw-r-r or use all permissions
8.Select Read/Only setting
9.Reboot and Enjoy
Another option is to:
put the bootanimation.zip, using terminal into data/local ...
#cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /data/local/
Keep the spaces it won't work without them also do not type the # symbols
# = superuser privileges
$ = no super user privileges
If anyone encounters any bugs, etc... or you just need a little more help on how to use these just post and I'll and I'm sure other users too, will be more than happy to do my/our best to correct any issues or assist in answering your questions.
I truly hope everyone enjoys and please consider donating (link at bottom) if you like my or LiQuID's hard work as we are facing possible eviction if we don't catch up on rent soon and can barely make it right now. If you can't we understand too and enjoy bringing you more enjoyment with your phones, we just ask if you can spare anything to please consider trying to help out a family in need.
Thank You everyone for your continued support.
If you like my work and want to make a donation I would appreciate any generosity
