    Ok so i followed all the instructions on the other really long thread. I am having one issue though. I installed SDK and the drivers, that all went perfect. The only issue im having is with the actual bootanimation.zip. I am thoroughly stuck. After i download a bootanimation.zip it shows up in winrar with 4 files (loading, eye, android, and the desc.txt) I know it has to go in tools. im just not sure how? do i add each folder or is there a way to add them all? i also know the name has to be bootanimation.zip. I tried a few different ways and pushed it to my Inc. but i cant get it to boot with the animation. any help would be much appreciated.

    Did you spell everything correctly? It looks like you have it right. Try checking to make sure your zipped file is actually in the tools folder and that it is named correctly.

    Try re-downloading bootanimation.zip? Maybe it got corrupted or something. I have no clue. I've done this countless times now and have never had an issue unless something was misplaced or being entered incorrectly.

    Do yourself a favor and use Mattguyver's free download to make it a whole lot easier, no SDK required. Go back to the long thread and use the link below to skip right to page 8. Start reading at post #370 if you don't want sound in your animation and post #374 if you want to add sound (mp3 file) to your animation.

    Ok im gonna try that, thanks. Oh on a side note, maybe you know what im doing wrong now. So i tried extracting the files to my desktop this time, then added them to a compressed zipped file. Then tried adding to tolls and forcing but still nothing. Then i tried adding the files on my desktop to an archive, then added to tools and forced. Instead of getting the error this time it showed this....

    C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local
    1796 KB/s (11338101 bytes in 6.163s)

    I thought i had it but when i rebooted it showed HTC Incredible, the white screen with black letters. Then where the boot animation should be, it was just black until the phone booted up. Not sure where to go now. I will try the other method though thanks.

    Well that's what you're supposed to see. On the right track at least.

    Hmmmm i tried doing it the easy way but still nothing. It isnt recognizing my phone, i do have the proper drivers installed bc it shows up on my computer, i had to follow the steps for SDK so they are deff on there. What is the "HTC sync app"? and how do i run that? it is how he suggested fixing the phone not being recognized.

    Can you try it using a different boot animation file if you haven't already? If it's not recognizing the phone then the drivers aren't installed correctly. You are in USB debugging mode, correct?

    It pushed once, so it should push again.

    Yes im in debugging mode. And they have to be installed correctly, i already pushed to my phone and it shows up on my pc. Exactly the way it did in the walkthrough.

    There's a boot animation website, but I'm being lazy. Um, try grabbing one off of the Custom Boot Screen thread. I would attach mine, but it's too large. I could always e-mail it if need be.

    Well you could uninstall it and then reinstall it if you have faith that it will work again. :D

    Uninstall code is:

    adb shell rm -r /data/local/bootanimation.zip (enter)


    Mine has never lagged. My eye only lags sometimes.
