I won't play pretty much most games on a phone because your thumb slides all oever the place and I'm tired I've missing the other "buttons".

Good to know since I'm getting the rev 3. From what others have posted here before, the rev 2 was just a little thinner over the volume buttons.

Since you specifically bought the rev 2, I'd bet if you e-mailed the retailer they would send you out a replacement also.

Can someone quickly tell me the difference between

this - [BOOTANIMATION][DEC 27] Original Nexus 720p - xda-developers

and this? [BOOTANIMATION][JAN 03] Optimized ics boot animation - New High Quality Images - xda-developers

Can the Jan 3 animation in the latter link be used with the stock ROM? Thanks.

Also, can the ones in this thread be used with the stock ROM?

Most of the ones I've seen say what they can be used with. Or what they definitely won't work with. I was able to flash mine from the SD cars to install. A couple pages back I think Han might have gone over installing. Maybe. (My poor brain cells are exhausted so I wouldn't swear to it).

So, you just download it to the phone and you can flash it from CWM? It can't be that easy, can it? Haha.

[Boot Animations] Boot Animations for Galaxy Nexus ~ Updated 01/07/12 - RootzWiki

I believe the Jan 3 one is visually tweaked (I'm using it). Any of the bootanimations should work without flashing. Just open the zip, look in the data file and extract just the bootanimation.zip file. You can then transfer it to the phone, and put it in either /data/local or /system/media. The rom's normally have it in /system/media but if you put it in /data/local it will look there first. It has to be named bootanimation.zip.

[Boot Animations] Boot Animations for Galaxy Nexus ~ Updated 01/07/12 - RootzWiki

Those are 2 different boot animations. The first link is the older Nexus boot ani and the 2nd one the new ICS galaxy boot ani that you have now, but enhanced resolution and deeper blacks. They should both work on 4.0.2 iirc.

You could try, just flash in CWM and reboot and see if it shows up.

Both are zips and can be flashed in CWM.

Ahhh, okay, that helps, thanks! The first one is what I was looking for.

So how do I go about installing it? I just download the zip to my phone? Then what? I'm not really sure what "flash in CWM" means, hahaha.

they are flashable .zip files that you install in clockwork mod recovery (CWM).

However, I prefer to put them in the appropriate file location myself....using root explorer on the phone just move/copy only the bootanimation.zip file into /data/local (after extracting that file from the flashable .zip in the links above....its located in the data file when you open the zip)

So I need to learn to never pass up on an opportunity to try and pitch an idea. Last year for my Senior Project, my group designed an application for a smart fridge that would scan the barcodes of your groceries and store inventory in a database for grocery shopping and recipes. More details here: SKIM Systems | System & SKIM Systems | Media



Well today this was unveiled at CES: LG unveils new smart fridge with Blast Chiller to keep your wine cool | Stuff magazine

The smart fridge also has plenty of other features to help manage your life. Smart Manager lets you scan your groceries' barcodes and track the expiry dates of your food – as well as recommending recipes based on the available ingredients.

What willyjay said

Just so ya know, remember when you backed up/nandroid'd? That blue text menu screen? That is CWM (clockworkmod) recovery.

You can either flash in CWM like you would a ROM or kernel or other flashable mod, or you could move the .zip with Root Explorer or File Explorer to the proper location as willy said.

To flash, dnld to your PC, hook your phone up, drop it on the virtual SD card (your phone) NOT inside a folder just by itself, reboot into CWM (through ROM Manager), install zip from sd card, choose zip from sdcard, select it, confirm and flash it, "go back" till you can select reboot system now. Volume button scrolls and power button makes selection.

You can either flash in CWM like you would a ROM or kernel or other flashable mod, or you could move the .zip with Root Explorer or File Explorer to the proper location as willy said.

To flash, dnld to your PC, hook your phone up, drop it on the virtual SD card (your phone) NOT inside a folder just by itself, reboot into CWM (through ROM Manager), install zip from sd card, choose zip from sdcard, select it, confirm and flash it, "go back" till you can select reboot system now. Volume button scrolls and power button makes selection.
You can also download to drop box and grab it from there if you don't have a USB cord.

Gave blood today. It's 8 pm and I have an hour to go at work. I feel more tired than usual. I wonder if that's from the loss of blood?

BB, If you want me on Gtalk and I have the ability to talk I'd be glad to help you. The hardest part about unlocking and rooting is getting the right driver installed while in bootloader mode. You have to do it manually. It's all gravy after that.

Lemme know via PM if you want my gtalk.

see: I'm going to make the hardest part of rooting easy for newbs.. .right here. Yup. I am.

Thanks!!!
I have to say, the toolkit made that part ez-peezee. It installed all the bits and parts and drivers for me. And thank God for altimax and jbdan last night to help me out when the toolkit didn't finish its job. But I may decide to lock er up ans try to unlock the long way so stand by for pm in the very near future.

Some really cool ones in that thread! Just make sure you get the one for your ROM 4.0.2 if you're going to flash in cwm

And BB's just in case...build 15 is out for your ROM (just dnld, wipe cache partition and dalvik) if you're still using it, and it has a color chooser on the fly for the softkey nav bar at the bottom

Well here's the direct link to the one I downloaded and am flashing now:

[Boot Animations] Boot Animations for Galaxy Nexus ~ Updated 01/07/12 - RootzWiki - Page 7

I followed your instructions and chose to flash it. It brought up a screen with the ROM Manager icon in the middle, and it's been on that for a few moments now. How long should I expect this to take? Thanks.

EDIT: Hrmm, it's been about five minutes now. Getting a little worried. :/

EDIT2: Almost ten minutes now, I'm assuming I did something wrong. The screen is still blank with the ROM Manager icon on it. How can I safely reboot without damaging anything to try again?

Thanks jbdan!

I prefer extracting just the bootanimation.zip and moving it myself, that way I don't have to restore a nandroid if I don't like it. I actually have a couple of boot animation zip files in /data/local and just rename them when I want to try a new one.

Curious...does flashing from a folder mess up a zip install? I usually put flashable zips (roms, mods etc.) in the root directory of the sd card, but I've tried to clean things up by moving them into folders, then flashing/installing the zips from there.....is this a no-no?

It shouldn't take that long to get into CWM....you may have to go back into rom manager and flash the appropriate recovery before rebooting into CWM (that's if you didn't set permanent CWM to over right the stock recovery)

I got into CWM just fine; opened ROM Manager, selected Reboot into Recovery, chose "install zip from sd card", "choose zip from sdcard", located the zip, and then picked install, and it brought up the blank screen with the ROM Manager icon on it, and it's now been stuck on this screen for quite a while now.

Anyway, I'm assuming I did something wrong, so how can I reboot safely?

i've been following the franco kernel thread over at XDA and on there, they talk about updating the bootloader for 4.0.3 roms. supposedly it can help with battery life and is recommended by google if you are running a .3 rom:

xda-developers - View Single Post - [KERNEL][GPL][9 JAN - #11] franco.Kernel | 4.0.3 | OC | TUN | INIT.D | COLORS+

i haven't personally done it yet, but i just thought i'd throw that out there in case anyone is wanting even better battery life...

Hmmm, strange....the only thing I can think of is it's a boot animation zip specifically for 4.0.3 and you're running 4.0.2, or vise versa....

Yeah, certainly possible, the poster in the Rootzwiki thread didn't specify. Well, regardless, how can I reboot now?

It's stuck in CWM at the logo? No sure how to get back (never had that happen) but try button combos to get back to CWM blue menu...not sure what a battery pull would do.

You can still try to move the bootanimation.zip yourself without flashing (that shouldn't be version specific like a flash would)

Razor you never renamed the recovery-from-boot.p file in /system did you? So when it tried to reboot after flashing the stock recovery was flashed. I'm assuming your on a screen with the android with red exclamation mark in chest?

I still haven't finished setting this up so I'll flash 15 but I have a feeling I'll be running aokp for a while. Sheer laziness to set other things up.

No worries just wanted to let you know thought you'd like the color changer nav bar! And you don't have to wipe data so nothing to set up again. Just wipe the 2 things I mentioned. Nothing changes your setup or apps.

This is only the case when your upgrading the same rom.

I pressed the power button again and it actually brought me right back to the recovery menu; however, when I choose "reboot system now", it goes to the screen with the CWM logo again. I assume it's because the boot animation I tried to load was for 4.0.3 only. How can I go back to the stock animation?

EDIT: Actually, any option I choose from the recovery menu takes me to the screen with the CWM logo.

I did do that rename, and the nandroid I did the other day was successful. Seems like a different problem now.

I second this. I'm not able to give blood anymore either but thanks to all who do.
How did your daughter's MRI turn out the other day? (Or was it ct scan or surgery?) Regardless, I hope she is well.
