    This is the most simplest way ever to make your own custom boot animation. All credit goes to the creator despotovski01

    First you will want to find all the images you want to use. Then with a program like FastStone Photo Resizer do a batch rename of all your images. To make it simple, in the spot it asks you what you want to rename them all to put this: B_40_000# It will then rename and number them B_40_0001, B_40_0002, B_40_0003, etc, etc, etc Then make a folder on your desktop, doesnt matter what you name it. Inside that folder make 2 folders one named: part0 the other part1 and put the majority of your pictures in part0 and a few in part1. Done there time to move on :)


    Now you want to download this program: Boot Animation Creator-Make Android Boot Animations With Ease!

    Now lets get to the fun part:

    I used jpeg's. I actually converted a youtube music video into images and into a boot animation.

    Did you rename each of them B_40_0000, B_40_0001, B_40_0002, B_40_0003, etc, etc? That's the way the stock boot animation has them named.

    Its not working for me :/ I get the normal LG screen boot, and the "Wireless for all" guy, w/ none of my pictures showing (besides the stock boot images). When I saved the whole project, it turned it into a ZIP file, I put that file in the root of the SD card/phone, via USB. Also, as Step 2 shows, I put the number of loops for part1, as zero. I have no idea, what I did wrong. I renamed the photos as "B_40_0000" etc.

    Did you put the file in the system>media folder? Also 0 means infinity you can change it to anything you want.

    No. Its just on its own, on the SD card. How do I move it to System>Media? I think thats what I'm having problems with.

    One of the things I love about this community is that from the noobiest noob to the expert dev nobody EVER makes anyone feel like they are an idiot or a pain in the ass.

    Everyone contributes in their own way whether they know it or not i.e. your problem and someone else's solution makes the forum better for everyone.

    Great tutorial Shiny!

    I'm just throwing this out there. I saw a guide (someware) that you need to set the frame rate in your bootanimation.zip
    I am learning myself and I need to find all of this again when I'm ready. But I do know you set a frame rate. It's a text file that looks something like
    480 480 24p 1 0 androidp 0 0 part1

    The first #s are for the resolution, the third is the frame rate, the fourth is weather or not to repeate the animation.... I forgot what the fifth is.

    Its called a desc file. With the animation maker it 'writes" and makes that file for you. (Step 2 of the guide)

    It look something like this once its made

    400 800 15
    p 1 0 part0
    p 1 0 part1

    You need to rename the file to bootanimation.zip

    K thank you. Will fix it as soon as I can get the creator to fix his link to an updated version that was updated on 2/15. His link is dead also. I dont have the original zip file anymore :(
