Default Custom Boot Animations

Here's the Nexus Prime

[Bootanimation] Nexus Prime Official Leak - xda-developers

(It looks better than this tho )

Make sure you scroll down and grab the WXGA touchpad file or you'll get a blank screen.



Here's how to update your boot animation:

Copy the animation to your TP via Dropbox, usb connection or download directly via Browser.

Open Root Manager or ES File Explorer or other root file manager. Your file has to be named exactly or you will need to rename it:

bootanimation.zip

Open root explorer and tap the /sdcard (where your file is probably located), go to the folder where you have your animation (download or dropbox or ??).
Long press your boot animation, choose copy and press the back button until you have left the sdcard. The status bar will change from /sdcard/whatever to just /.
Tap on data, then local and tap the "paste" button on the bottom.
If you need to rename your file you can long-tap on it and choose rename.
Reboot.

The sweet thing about putting your animation here is you can upgrade to a newer build and don't have to recopy your boot animation.

Prior to this I had the Google Gears, which is simple and classy. Just grab the bootanimation file from XDA and install the same way.

Do you know the process for making one of these? Can you make one out of basically any video/animation?

It might say more on that link I posted.

I've never done it, but it can't be that hard.

Lol not bad for a first try. I need to find a way to make the animation bigger without it lagging. Also need to get a longer noise I guess lol

I've never been a fan of Android startup noises.

Hmm, using both File Manager and ES File Explorer, I can't seem to modify/change/delete/move/etc bootanimation.zip....anybody else experiencing this?

EDIT: Used CWM to "install .zip from sdcard" and it worked just fine. Nevermind.

Hmm thats a risky fix because installing and just moving to the proper place are two different things ...

You need root explorer to do it properly

IIRC, the recommended installation method over at xda was to use CWM? Could be remembering totally wrongly, as I have the memory of a goldfish... what's risky about it? Just curious, in case I decide to change my bootanim at some point.

Nah i followed the xda directions, it says root explorer

In this case it might not affect anything, as far as i know if that worked then its a fluke because those are two entirely different processes, you're flashing the animation instead of just putting where the tp can access it during boot up

Unless specifically mentioned otherwise, the accepted method is to copy the file, not flash it. I'm surprised it worked that way.

It wouldn't let me copy it. :\ I couldn't modify, rename, replace, move, or delete the original bootanimation.zip. Just so I know in the future, what should I do to bypass this?

Also, flashing it via CWM IS specifically outlined at XDA:

Quote:
Instructions:
1. Download the zip file (1280720) here.
2. Reboot your phone into recovery.
3. Choose install zip from sd card.
4. Choose zip from sd card.
5. Select the file you downloaded from above.
6. Once it finishes running choose Go Back and then reboot!
Just underneath the Youtube video...

OK, I got it. You DL'd the top link, not the link that is made just for the HP TP, which is toward the bottom of the post and is designed to be copied, not flashed.

UR both rite.

Apparently you missed this part, "Make sure you scroll down and grab the WXGA touchpad file or you'll get a blank screen."

... but it did work.
