    Getting ready to customize my DROID's boot animation. Opened 1 of 2 folders of PNG files using Adobe Bridge. 76 files in the first folder, 16 files in the second. The first set of files draw the "DROID" word, then the eye.

    The second 16 files animate the eye.

    My first thought is to spell out "messenger13's DROID" instead of just "DROID". I don't know what to do with the eye just yet. :(

    I dunno if it's possible to do this or not, but could it be made into some sort of animated wallpaper, and have the glowing eye stare at you from the middle of the screen?

    Does droid have to be rooted to do this?

    /system/media/bootanimation.zip


    I don't know of any other way to do it, as you need root access to the system files. At least, for the time being. Who knows what apps are coming down the pipe.

    I noticed this after the 2.0.1 upgrade.

    I just shook my head. This is the kind of thing iPhone users like :)

    Found it. Go to Settings > Sound & display > SD card notifications (needs to be CHECKED) If that option is UNchecked, it won't say "DROID" upon boot-up.

    Joe - can you make the eye blink and open again - I'm sure if you are open to trying, you could throw your artistic side to it and make it fit the whole idea of this crazy droid eye.
    Lemme know
    Just think it would be cool if it blinked a couple times at you.

    Maybe one day I will get up the nerve to root my phone. I'd love the option to change up the boot animation.

    But then I would have to learn how to make one.

    Good work guys!

    doesn't it checks "/data/local/bootanimation.zip"
    then "/system/media/bootanimation.zip"
    ?
    i thought it works in that way ? :S

    Yes. But I *think* it then writes it to the /system/media directory. So, either directory works actually. I'm just used to this way.

    The /data/local/ directory was discovered later on.
