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 (Text):
    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 (Text):
    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 (Text):
    /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 (Text):
    adb shell
    2.) Remove bootanimation.zip from /data/local using:
    Code (Text):
    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 (Text):
    xxx xxx 210
    p 1 0 part0
    p 0 0 part1
    To
    Code (Text):
    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.

    How do you actually run the the adb command?


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

    Code:
    adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local/

    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.

    so i assume you need to root to take advantage of these boot screens correct?

    Does anyone know a site to make a gif really quick or a program that will do it?
    Because they took down the Splash.gif and in my opinion splash is one of the best on this list.

    NO ROOT NEEDED TO USE THESE!!!!
    Just place them in your data/local folder with the following command
    Code (Text):
    adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local

    run it through your Windows command prompt (run --> "cmd")
    then point to the SDK tools directory
    ex. "cd c:/sdk/tools"

    then execute the push command

    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.

    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 (Text):
    480 854 210
    p 1 0 part0
    p 0 0 part1
     
    to
    Code (Text):
    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?
  16. wildtouch83

    wildtouch83 Well-Known Member

    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.
  17. n1ghtwish

    n1ghtwish Well-Known Member

    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 (Text):
    xxx xxx 210
    p 1 0 part0
    p 0 0 part1
    To
    Code (Text):
    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

    Ok It must be me but I cant find out how send a ADB command I have SDK and my phone connects fine what am I doing wrong?
  24. droidkevlar

    droidkevlar Well-Known Member

    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?
  25. Pitamakan

    Pitamakan Well-Known Member

    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.
