Default Rage Red Boot Animation

Anyone know if the Original Droid's "Rage Red" Boot Animation will work on the X. And if it will does anyone have a copy of it lying around? I can't find a download for it anywhere.

Yup. From what I understand all bootanimations for the droid work for the x to. Just need someone to confirm that. If so I think the resolutions are close enough that it wont matter. Also you could always edit the .txt file.inside the zip to the right dimensions for the x and repackage it.

I wish I had that image that it finishes with as my wallpaper... would make the boot look seem-less.

It looks weird though... it uses only the center of it as the wallpaper. Oh well. Worth a shot.

This would have been so cool on the Storm 1. Always doing bat pulls, you get to see a lot of boot animations. As is, I hardly ever have to reboot! :lol:

I think these animations would cause the storm to freeze and require a battery pull though, lol

This boot is pretty cool, but the end is also sort of anticlimactic, don't you think? It's all badass and sleek up until about 2/3 of the way through when it starts to get kind of plain and boring.

I just used adbWireless and pushed it over. Then used Quick Boot to Reboot. Worked great for me. Now to test out some others.

EDIT: Also,

You don't need to change the original boot animation file or location. The system looks in /data/local/ first, and if there's an animation there, it uses it instead of looking to /system/media/. Having one in /data/local/ should not affect your original boot file in any way. Simply remove the boot animation archive that you placed in /data/local/ and the system will use the one in /system/media/.

EDIT2: I also just realized that I could very well just type, "adb reboot," instead of exiting adbWireless and opening yet another application lolz. Saved myself some time this go around.

you should undo that. it looks in data/local first, so there is no need. plus, in case you ever need to do a data wipe from recovery, i would want to make sure the stock one is available. i dont know if it would make a difference, but i'm the type of person that just likes to aviod anything unnecessary.

btw, here is a great list of some cool boot animations.

http://droidboots.com/downloads/boot-animations/

i like the decepticons one. that is the one i was using before i switched to the Droid 2's R2D2 boot. (Which i put up here in case anyone wants it: Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites! )

How do I get it in "/data/local?" Root Explorer, Root Manager? I see "data" on the sd card but all it has in it is Beautiful Widgets

Which is better, Root Explorer or Root Manager?

You need to be rooted and have root access. You can place the .zip archive on your SD card, then cut and paste in Root Explorer to /data/local/. /data/local/ is not located on the SD card. It's located on the phone's internal memory and requires root to gain access to.

root explorer, hands down. and, it's not on the sd card. get out to the root of the phone, then look for data, then local. there should be one folder in there that is labeled tmp. if you see that, you're in the right place. then, just paste the bootanimation.zip there
