    First off, im running HC2.1,
    1.Dont you have to root to be able to upgrade to a different software type? I rooted before in stalling greek35 2.1, then upgraded to HC2.1, do i have to reroot?
    2. Rooting is just, using the update.zip file you download, then using droidroothelp.apk program, mount3, update those 3 things, flash 15.0, rename, reboot ect...so basically as long as you have SU app on your phone your rooted no?

    Now boot animation question
    I downloaded a boot animation, connected my phone with usb debugging, used the cd command and abd push bootanimation.zip /data/local, rebooted and the boot animation didnt change..after i used the push command, it said x.xkb transfered in 1.23seconds or whatever...any suggestions?

    You can just put the bootanimation.zip on your sd card, then in a adb shell do

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    mv /system/media/bootanimation.zip /system/media/bootanimation.bak
    cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /system/media/bootanimation.zip
    sync
    reboot


    That is it, if cp comes back as not found then just do
    mv /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /system/media/bootanimation.zip
    OR
    cat /sdcard/bootanimation.zip > /system/media/bootanimation.zip

    Except he is already rooted and wasn't asking if he needed to do it for that.

    Its been partially explained to me but im not grasping this abd shell. I dont know what im not getting about it. I followed all of the instructions on Big Lou's post with push bootanimation.zip ect and it didnt work.

    I did all his commands by using usb debug and using start>run>cmd

    Whats abd shell?
