Smile 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.

VERY IMPORTANT:

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 ...
typing command:

#su
#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.

When I go into /system/media there is only an audio folder. How do I find the bootanimation.zip file that already exists on the phone so I can rename it bootanimation.bak and replace it?

In UD8 boot animations only work in /data/local - just a quirk of that particular ROM.

In most other ROMs boot animations are in /system/media but you can override that one by placing a different boot anim in /data/local

I don't even see bootanimation.zip in /data/local! I can't find it anywhere... I wonder where that little booger is?

Thank you very much for the offer if we need a place to host I'll message you but someone else is helping out for now I just had to wait for LiQuID to add my files to the server for me but links are all fixed up now. Again the offer is much appreciated though, it was a very nice thought and a generous offer.

Hmm, I've placed the file in system/media and in data/local, I still have the original boot animation though. I'm using Project Elite V2 and have no clue where the original boot animation is located.

Any ideas?

Did you rename it to bootanimation.zip?

Yea, I move boot animations all the time, but the original has always been in either system/media or data/local. So I placed the file in both folders hoping it would override the original.

I searched for 'bootanimation' using root explorer and the only files I could locate with that name were the two files I had placed. I searched all files. Its not a huge issue but if you have an idea that would be awesome!

Just downloaded that ROM and looked through the zip on my desktop. There is a file called bootanimation in /system/bin that is NOT a .zip file. It doesn't have an extension at all actually. Very curious. What does the animation look like?

The only thing I could think of is to try removing the .zip extension from the boot animation you like and placing it in /system/bin, and renaming it to bootanimation. Before you do that you might want to rename the existing file in that folder to bootanimation.bak so if it doesn't work you can switch back. I'm curious to see how that would turn out.

EDIT:
If you go here:
http://www.droidforums.net/forum/actngrezy/87295-rom-release-project-elite-v-2-built-source-2-2-1-a.html

this rom enables to to use a script in the terminal "switchboot" to switch the boot animation with one on the root of your SD card

Oh nice! I hate when people ask for help before reading the directions, now I'm guilty

I tried renaming the boot animation by removing the extension and placing it in system/bin. It didn't work, now I only have the "M" logo until the phone is good 2 go.

I'm gonna place the original back in system/bin and use the script.

Thanks for the advice!
