    Thanks to EHANDA's post for inspiring me to get off my lazy butt and make what I was thinking of doing.

    Boot animation from the Droid X teaser video. Screen caps taken from the HQ video.
    YouTube - droXbootv12.mpg
    Download:
    MegaUpload realized it didn't have to be pngs like the moto boot. Converted to jpeg. Better quality and way smaller file size. Kept smaller images. Just doesn't run smooth with larger ones.
    v1.4 2.08MB

    MegaUpload Better Quality plays less smoothly.
    v1.0 10.41MB (doesn't play all the way through before my phone boots)


    UPDATE: 07/29/10
    Finally had time to work on it. By popular demand I have have done it with the Droid X eye instead of the Droid eye. But the png files from the Droid X boot are weird. I couldn't save as jpeg so I had to do stupid things to get it right. Also resizing the pic greatly decreased the quality, as you'll be able to tell once it gets to the eye. If I have time later I'll try and work on getting it to stay better quality. I had to decrease the image size in order to make it have a useable framerate. the 480x480 from the X is just too big to run smoothly, at least on my droid, I'm assuming it would be the same on others.

    (File must be renamed from XeyeTeaser.zip to bootanimation.zip)
    MegaUpload
    File description: XeyeTeaser v0.1.3
    File size: 4.47 MB



    Install:
    Copy it over to data/local (will take up space used for apps)
    if not rooted use ADB to push it to data/local

    or

    (won't take up space used for apps)
    Use root explorer to replace the bootanimation.zip in /system/media
    **BACK UP your stock bootanimation.zip first!!**

    Bugless Beast Install:
    put the bootanimation.zip on the root of sdcard then run Pete's switchboot script in terminal emulator.

    Wow, good job!

    If I was rooted, I'd do this.

    There is no need to be rooted. Just use ADB to push the bootanimation.zip to /data/local. Root not required.

    Is there any way that you can implement this boot animation with the Droid X eye that Fab posted?

    I don't have it anymore so I can't test it. But the stock bootanimation from the incredible was setup differently than the Motorola Droid. I don't know if it's going to work. You should be able to try it. On the Droid if the bootanimation is wrong you just get a black screen till it boots. But if you try it please nandroid backup your system first just in case it sends you into a boot loop or something. Or feel free to take the thing to the Incredible forums and maybe someone there can do it for you. I don't have access to an Incredible so I can't test it.

    you need to put the .zip somewhere on your sdcard.
    Use root explorer and navigate to /system/media and long press on the bootanimation.zip rename it to something else or copy it to some location on your sdcard.

    Then go to where you put my bootanimation.zip and long press and copy it then go back to /system/media and make sure the it is set to rw not ro the button to toggle that is in the top right corner. then hit the paste button that's in the bottom left hand corner.

    reboot
    enjoy.

    I was looking at that boot from the Droidx dump earlier this morning. I was going to try but it seems like a lot more work then I want to do/might not be capable of doing. There's a flash of red that would look like crap in landscape and my skills at photoshop aren't good enough to fix it.

    Yeah I just got CS5. It's been a good while since I used Photoshop so I have to get back use to it again. I know it'll take some work, but man, that's a project within itself.

    You can use Astro to do this only if you are using Bugless Beast and enable the god mode script. But if you are using Bugless Beast its easier to put the bootanimation on the root of you SDcard and then run Pete's switchboot script in Android Terminal Emulator

    rw and ro is read/write and read only. The /system is set to read only so that it doesn't get changed. with root access you can change that. Using root explorer is the easiest way IMO because there is the option to switch it on the fly. Otherwise you have to use terminal emulator to mount it and move it and it's a lot of typing.

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. su
    3. mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 dev/block/mtdblock4 system
    4. busybox cp system/media/bootanimation.zip sdcard/data/bootanimation.bak
    5. busybox cp sdcard/bootanimation.zip system/media/bootanimation.zip
    6. mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 dev/block/mtdblock4 system
    7. sync
    8.  
    if you don't want to back up the stock animation then don't do the first busybox command (Not recommended)

    If you did not put the new bootanimation.zip on the root of your sdcard then you have to change accordingly. i.e. if you put the bootanimation in your download folder it would look like this
    "busybox cp sdcard/download/bootanimation.zip system/media/bootanimation.zip"

    I hear CS5 is really nice. I just got CS4 though so I'm happy. I won't switch until there's absolutely something I want to do and can't do. I switched from CS to CS4 because I wanted to try HDR stuff and CS didn't have that.

    All you need to do is push this to /data/local no root necessary.

    Not only that but by pushing to /data/local you do not overwrite the stock boot animation if you ever want to go back. you simply delete the bootanimation.zip from /data/local and stock plays again.
