    Anybody figure the bootscreen out instead of the sprint one, think it would be cool to change it.

    I didn't know the Eris can change boot screens w/o being rooted. That's awesome. You jumping to the Inc on Thursday?

    there are two screens when turning the phone on: the static image of three droids on skateboards, then the animation that verizon puts on the phone. The animation is the one I can change. And yeah, I'm jumping ship. Already pre-ordered

    I've been looking into this, and it uses a .qmg file, which I dont know what the hell it is.

    I've never heard of that either. The eris just needs a zip file loaded with png images and a couple text files pushed with the sdk. Actually pretty easy. It's all android so I wonder why its not that easy for you

    Thats different. Sprint has it's own custom animation before the android boot animation. So we have two animations o.o

    so then you would just have to change both files, right? I may just be talking out of my ass since I don't have the phone, but that's how things get discovered

    It's on the SDX forums that tell you what file it is. I guess if you remove it, it's just a black screen or something. I'd like to replace it with a more fluid Sprint bootup screen, or even a Samsung one.

    So far I've been unsuccessful in changing the sprint boot animation but found a really cool decepticon animation to replace the android animation.... Looking for a transformers-themed live wall paper to supplement the whole package.... the sky's the limit! Eventually....
