    allydoeslandscape.zip

    allydoestall.zip
    How to install:
    Place the file on the root of the sd card and rename it to something easy to type... I picked allydoestall.zip

    Then open a terminal emulator on your ally

    Type the following:

    /$ su
    /# cp sdcard/allydoestall.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip
    /# reboot

    enjoy

    -you can replace allydoestall.zip with any of the custom animations

    here are a couple of animations i tried which also work with the ally

    Type the following:

    /$ su
    /# cp sdcard/allydoestall.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip
    /# reboot

    I followed that but it brings up a list of cmds to type, if i dont type any and type reboot it still have the stock bootimg

    i had no problem with raptor here are a couple of other install methods

    1st: if you have Root explorer, rename it to bootanimation.zip and copy bootanimation.zip to your "/data/local/" folder. (after hitting the "Mount System RW" button)


    2nd: if you know how to use ADB, you can copy it to your computer (say c:\)
    Then just do the following command:

    Code:

    adb push c:\bootanimation.zip /data/local/

    or you can try this

    in win 7 with android sdk wirh usb debugging on your phone
    rename your allydoes.zip it to bootanimation.zip
    in windos open a cmd prompt as an admin and navigate to your sdk's tools folder.
    cd C:\android\sdk\tools (sdk's tools directory)
    adb shell
    su
    mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    rm /data/local/bootanimation.zip
    cp sdcard/bootanimation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip
    mount -o remount,ro /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    reboot

    If you aren't comfortable with adb you can always use root explorer and copy and paste these into the /data/local folder

    Lol OK I apparently can't read for crap. Was copying it into data/system instead of data/local. Sorry about the false alarm.

    That's pretty cool. I don't reboot often though. A live wallpaper with the waving androids popping in would be cool.

    I checked out both vids and chose the landscape theme, really easy to follow and sick boot screen.

    Question, how do I undo if I don't like it? Other than a nandroid backup.
    I'm running Punisher ROM right now, and I like that bootanimation, but I want to try out some new ones.

    Edit: Also, why does my Terminal Emulator say "cp: command not found"

    Edit2: Okay, so I got it to work(I just added "busybox" before the "cp" command in my terminal emulator). My problem now is that as soon as I rebooted, YouTube stopped working. It worked fine before, but now it force closes every time I try to open it. I'll be reverting back to my backup until I figure this out.

    Edit3: (last edit, I swear) It's not the bootanimation that's the problem, it's probably something in my rom (Punisher 0.1). I'll just live without YouTube for now then.
