Default Boot Animation Gallery

Since people are starting to make their own boot animations now, and this is something that everyone (not just root) can do to customize their Eris I thought it'd be helpful to start sharing them in one place. Also, since the name of the animation must be "bootanimation.zip" I have changed the names to avoid confusion when downloading, but it will have to be changed back before installing.

Installing the SDK and using ADB

1.) Make sure debug mode is enabled:
Menu -> settings -> Applications -> Development
Check the box for USB Debugging.
2.) Download the SDK from Android SDK | Android Developers

3.) Download HTC Sync from HTC Mobile Phone Support - DROID ERIS by HTC (Verizon) - Downloads

4.) Install HTC Sync (This takes care of any driver issues)
5.) Extract the SDK to any directory (C:\AndroidSDK is easy to remember) and install.
6.) Open a command window (Windows key + R -> Type "cmd" hit enter)
7.) Navigate to your SDK\tools Directory
Code:
cd C:\AndroidSDK\tools
8.) ADB commands will work from here
---------------------------------------------


Installing custom boot animations (Credit to jcase from XDA):

Windows:
1.) Download the desired animation, rename the zip file to "bootanimation" and move into your Android SDK/Tools folder.
2.) Run the following adb command to push the animation into the proper place:

Code:
adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local/
3.) Enjoy!

Mac: (Thanks to Pitamakan)
1. Open a Terminal window, and run the following command. (This is assuming you installed the SDK in your Applications folder.) Replace "username" with the correct user name for your machine:

/Users/username/Applications/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/adb

You should get a screenful of command syntax in response, which will confirm to you that adb is running and ready to go.

2. Put the bootanimation.zip file into the same folder that contains the adb file, and then run the following, again changing the username as needed.

Code:
/Users/username/Applications/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/adb push /Users/username/Applications/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/bootanimation.zip /data/local/
And that should do it!
---------------------------------------------


Reverting back to default boot animation

1.) Open an ADB Shell using:
Code:
adb shell
2.) Remove bootanimation.zip from /data/local using:
Code:
rm /data/local/bootanimation.zip
3.) On next boot you'll have the red VZW animation back.
---------------------------------------------

Resizing Boot Animations:
Change the code in the desc.txt folder from
Code:
xxx xxx 210
p 1 0 part0
p 0 0 part1
To
Code:
320 480 210
p 1 0 part0
p 0 0 part1
When putting the animation files back into a zip file, DO NOT use compression. Select the store option when zipping.
---------------------------------------------

Post up your custom animations and I will keep this updated, following this format and keeping things appropriate would be much appreciated.

Run the following adb command to push the animation into the proper place:

Code:

looks like you need some kind of android sdk installed on your PC and then you copy the bootanimantion.zip into some tools folder in its file structure.

I know Adobe Image Ready can animate just about anything, I'm not sure of any good free programs though. I will check it out if I find some time later.

After I figure out how to set up the desc file I will write a tutorial for creating new animations specific to the Eris.

Then I'd like to make sure that all of these are sized to fit the Eris correctly, I have found a few online that I like but need to scale it down from the Droid's resolution to fit properly.

Hopefully we can make this an awesome database for Eris users! Thanks for the help everyone.

i can't get the adb drivers to work for my Eris in Windows.

I can do this without drivers in Ubuntu though.

Anyone have the same issue?

Found another few but these are the biggest I've found, looks pretty good very high quality stuff.
"Red Rage" Boot Animation v0.5
YouTube - Red Rage Droid Boot Animation v0.3
Download: Here


Cyborg
If you are having trouble seeing the full boot EI you only see half screen or something go into the desc.txt and change this
Code:
480 854 210
p 1 0 part0
p 0 0 part1
to
Code:
320 480 210
p 1 0 part0
p 0 0 part1
so it resizes the boot to fit the eris screen.


I tested these on Eris just change the code above so it works perfectly on the eris.

Nice!, it worked on the first try! Might want to add one instruction detail for users that are not as technically inclined. You need to set your phone to USB debugging mode to connect before running the push command:

To set phone into debug mode:
Menu/settings/Applications/Development
Check the box for USB Debugging.

Connect your phone and run the push command.

Which boot animation does this replace? Or does it just add it to the list of already running boot animations?

I can't get adb using linux. I've got the SDK downloaded, and cd'd over to the tools directory, but whenever I try an adb command, I get "bash: adb: command not found". Anyone with linux experience help me out?

when you apply one of these your phone will start with the 3 androids on skateboards...then go into the animation you have loaded until your phone fully boots.

The phone searches in data/local first... if no animation is found, it runs the default from the root folder.

Found yet another simple one that some of you might like lol
Go here for a preview Preview
Download: Year Of The Droid
There is no need to resize any of the bootanimations just change the code in the desc.txt folder from
Code:
xxx xxx 210
p 1 0 part0
p 0 0 part1
To
Code:
320 480 210
p 1 0 part0
p 0 0 part1
The eris will automatically resize the pictures to the eris's size with that change.
If you like the boots If pointed you to throw some thanks my way...I mean The guy in the first post just got them from my posts and hes getting all the credit for finding them, that makes me jealous lol

Are you in the tools directory of your SDK? Is your SD card mounted? It shouldnt be. When you look in the devices, is there a yellow ! listed on the adb?

Many thanks ... this is very cool!

(In case anyone's wondering, this trick works using the Intel Mac SDK, as well ... no need for added drivers.)

So presumably, if someone could isolate the Android animation from the old 1.5 boot sequence, we could restore it in our 2.1 phones? I kind of miss that -- pretty much the only cool thing lost in the upgrade.

Look at post #8, above ... that's what you do. Just be in the proper directory, and then open a command prompt.

Do you get that when you're typing the "cd c:/sdk/tools" command? If so, it likely means that you put the SDK into a different directory then the one suggested in the sample. Check the path of the tools subdirectory of the SDK, and adjust the command accordingly.

I'm having issues. I notice on the android developer page that is doesn't say anything about being supported on Win7. Anybody running Win7 and it works?

Here's a straightforward way to do it for the Mac:

1. Open a Terminal window, and run the following command. (This is assuming you installed the SDK in your Applications folder.) Replace "username" with the correct user name for your machine:

/Users/username/Applications/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/adb

You should get a screenful of command syntax in response, which will confirm to you that adb is running and ready to go.

2. Put the bootanimation.zip file into the same folder that contains the adb file, and then run the following, again changing the username as needed.

/Users/username/Applications/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local/

And that should do it!

I still can't get anything to work right...

I have usb debugging on and the sd card is NOT mounted. I have sdk installed and can get to the tools folder through cmd. I ran the adb push command with the bootanimation.zip in my tools folder. A bunch of text flew by but nothing changed... now the computer will not recognize my phone as being plugged in without a restart. It does the same thing to me when I run "adb shell" from a cmd prompt, everytime I do anything I have to restart my computer for the phone to be recognized. It will charge but I get no options to mount in the notification bar on my phone.

This worked but this is what I get.
Code:
cannot stat 'bootanimation.zip': No such file or directory
I have it in the same folder as instructed tried a couple different times.

OK, give this a try:

1. In a fresh Terminal window, begin by entering the following command, again assuming the SDK is in your Applications directory, and again changing the username as needed:

cd /Users/username/Applications/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/

2. Now enter the two commands in my previous post.

Did that do it?
