    Answers my question.

    =============================

    I am attempting to modify/replace the default boot animation on my Incredible.

    I am currently running Froyo 2.2 (not sure if that's relevant).

    I downloaded the BIOS style boot animation and the zip file contains:
    data [dir]
    META-INF [dir]

    the data directory contains:
    local [dir]

    the local directory contains:
    bootanimation.zip (which has the part0 and part1 folders and the .txt file)

    I followed the instructions I found here and based on that discarded everything other than the bootanimation.zip that had the part0 and part1 folders.

    Just to be sure, I renamed the existing bootanimation.zip (in /data/local) and then pushed the new file.

    When the phone reboots I get the same boot animation as before (the Droid eye that came with 2.2).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Ok let me see if I can help You, take the new zip file and place it in your sdk tools folder. Also you have to have it renamed VZW_bootanimation.zip

    (Just a heads up for Windows 7 users: Leave off the .zip and .mp3 from the file name)

    Now you have to make sure you mount partitions in clockwork reovery. After that open a command prompt and push the files.

    adb push VZW_bootanimation.zip /system/customize/resource/
    adb push VZW_Droid.mp3 /system/customize/resource/

    Now at this point you should see data being transfered, if you do it should work.

    If you have the option to show filename extensions enabled (Like I do), you still need to add the .zip and .mp3.

    That zip file isn't made for android 2.x. The files bootanimation.zip and androidaudio.mp3 should go in /data/local not /system/customize/resource

    Since he is running 2.2, he does need to use VZW_bootanimation.zip and VXW_Droid.mp3 and put them in /system/customize/resource.
    2.2 doesn't use /data/local for the custom bootanimations.

    Today I updated to the OTA version of Froyo. When i try to push the file over the VZ_bootanimation.zip o get a read-only file system. Is this because i'm not rooted?
