    Alright, when Android 2.2 (Froyo) is released for the Incredible. How easy would it be to download a new boot animation? As it stands right now I'm having THE most difficult time getting a really cool boot animation on my phone. I've downloaded Android SDK. No problem. But when I try to adb push the boot animation, it shows that it loaded on my phone but when I reboot it doesn't work. Now, all I get is the "HTC Incredible" screen, Blank (black) screen, then my Home page. Really frustrated right now. I've followed all the directions on how to do this off of "youtube", other forums, etc. I'm not rooted but the instructions I've found were for non-rooted Inc's. and the instructions were for my MacBook.
    I'm debating on whether or not to find a friend with Windows and loading from their computer.
    *sigh*

    Oh, BTW...do I have to use HTC Sync? Seems like only Windows uses this. Can't seem to find it on my MacBook.

    I recently customized my boot animation. Using Root Explorer it was as easy as a drag and drop. Mine was the droid x bootup with droid sound, two separate files and i merely pasted them in data/local folder...i didnt have to access adb or anything like that. As far as Mac being used, i have no clue.

    I don't know which particular method you're using, but when applying the Droid eye animation, I used these steps:

    1. Download the .zip bootanimation
    2. Download the .zip bootanimation sound (if you have one)
    3. Copy the .zip bootanimation to the sdk/tools folder
    4. Copy the .zip bootanimation sound to the sdk/tools folder and EXTRACT it.
    5. Push both files using command prompt, and reboot.

    The first is a procedure I used, the second contains a download for the sdk folder if you don't already have one.

    If downloaded and installed the same boot. My phone is not rooted-where did you find the sound?

    I used this procedure to a T....YouTube - Change Boot Animation on Android Phone *non-rooted* on a mac

    I've used the following: cdandroid-sdk-mac_86/ tools
    ./adb devices
    ./adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local AND...

    /Users/"name"/Applications/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/adb
    /Users/"name"/Applications/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/adb push /Users/"name"/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/ adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local AND...

    /Users/"name"/adndroid-sdk-mac_86/tools/adb
    /Users/"name"/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/adb push /Users/"name"/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/bootanimation.zip /data/local


    Yeah, it's been a long day...LOL.

    In regards to #5...could you give me the command prompt? I mean, how did you enter it on your computer. From my above post, I don't think I entered it right.

    From the sounds of things, you unzipped it, which you were not supposed to do.

    Save the .zip instead of using the "Run" option ("Do you want to Save or Run this file?").

    Copy the .zip file from your downloads folder into your SDK\Tools directory

    Be sure your cmd prompt is pointing to the Tools directory...

    then run >adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local
