    Guys I couldnt believe it Myself but i did it, I Found Out How to change the shutdown animation thankx to aboatright3605. He give me the idea of if we could change the bootanimation and then i thought the shutdown animation was possible to.

    So with That said Here Is step by step on how to change shutdown animation.

    1. Download any zip animations i provided below (there will be more soon)
    2. Make sure you have root explorer Installed
    3. Place The zip File On The Root Of Your SD Card
    4. Open Root Explorer
    5. Click Mount R/W at the top and it will change to R/O
    6. Click sdcard, Find the file you placed on the sdcard and highlight it and In Options Click Extract All
    7. It Will say Extracted Completed, Click Go to extracted You should see a file called shutdown, Click On it and it take you to another folder called shutdown.
    8. Highlight shutdown folder and in Options Click Move
    9. Navigate to system/media, Now paste Your file
    10. While still In System/media go to video(Now you should See your Original shutdown animation folder, rename It shutdown.bak and highlight and move somewhere on your sdcard that it would be safe.
    11. Now go back to System/Media and Highlight the new shutdown and move it to the video folder.
    12. Now while in system/media/video highlight the shutdown and change the permission to only... (First Row all Read should be checked, on owner the first Write should be checked on that row NOTHING ELSE, last row Execute all should be checked), Now click ok.
    13. Click the shutdown folder and for every image change the permission to first row all checked and second row only the first one checked NOTHING ELSE, click ok. ( This Step Is Important)
    14. Last step is to change back to Mount R/W and Power Off and watch the magic happen.

    I just finished putting this on my phone works great...sn.. If you don't change the permission on all the images, the shutdown will only work for images you do change....WHICH MEANS DO ALL THE STEPS IN ORDER FOR IT TO WORK..

    Just tried it, and it stayed stuck on "Power Off" "Shutting down"
    Boots fine after I take out the battery and put it back in.

    It would be nice if you can add a screen shot for steps .12 & .13. I have a feeling that's where I messed up at.

    Im Not good with screen shots but someone else may post them up. Dont panic your phone is fine, u just missed a step.

    Try to read it once more
    I will try to make a video for this soon.:eek:

    Thanks once again for the boot animation, I will try to get it right this time. but by any chance will anyone be kind enough to post a screenshot for steps 12 and 13 just a screenshot of the "Permissions" part. Im a little drawn back.

    i have successfully changed the bootanimation and can change it with every flash of my verbous themes that have boot animation added...however its caught in a boot loop right now but im getting there....

    ive reset this thing 50 times
    i can change the first and second animation but it gets stuck and loops...its something with the bootanimation and samsungloop in system\bin thats the key

    Are Your Permissions Correct? Like I said for Every image you have in the sytem/media/video/shutdown folder you have to highlight it and go to permissions and change them all the same to what i said in the steps, if not changed your phone will get stuck when trying to power down menu until the permissions are correct.

    Hope This Helped:eek:

    this has nothing to do with a permission thing. this is an issue with a link back on a data file from the bin...not being able to complete its assigned task by being a link to execute its command when triggered...the bootanimation file in the bin is a linker to one of the qmg's in the media file ...same thing for samsungloop data file in bin..it links back to the qmgs in the media file also..i need to figure out what needs changed to stop the null on the desc. text that is with the bootanimation.zip to make it run as user graphics instead of system graphics....it would help if i actually knew what i was talking about instead of being 100% self taught. :):):):):)


    edit..i think it can be solved with a cleaner.sh located at the root of my flashed zip file...all the ones from the transform have a cleaner.sh for the bootanimation to clean out the old one to run..
    ANY DEVELOPERS READING THIS THAT WANTS TO THROW IN SOME INPUT...THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!!!!

    deleted all the shutdown stuff thinkin it would just turn off but it got stuck in a shutdown loop for 2 days.. downloaded and set up the new animation and cleared it right up.. sidenote: the television screen shutting off looks better than the original metropos nonsense

    A new bootani would be nice.. deleted the metro and tried renaming a .wav file to sound like a nextel chirp but that didn't take.. Would like to get rid of the samsung booatani next and figure out how to flash y theme..

    A new bootani is in my thread....new bootanimation.....yes!!!! Im on the edge of success with a real boot animation for our phones ...ive got it set to change with every flash of my themes but its still leaves you with the second splash stay on ....soooo as soon as I get it figured out EVERYONE WILL BE ABLE TO CHANGE BOOTANIMATION AT WILL...SIMPLY BY FLASHING A VERBOUS THEME OR A DWAYNE ADMIROUS THEME AND HAVE A KICKASS BOOT ANIMATION TO BOOT. :)


    Dwayne....hit me up brother....we need to put our heads together on this..cause the developers are letting us newbies run with it on this ....we are the little engine that could and soon to be the little engine that kicked tail and left them at the starting line. :)

    I did this and now my phone stays idle while shutting off...
    Might have to do with editing the permissions for every image can you give better instructions on which ROW and GROUPS should have what?
  20. 3finger

    3finger Well-Known Member

    when you go through each individual image, the permissions are read all, owner write, and execute all, but make sure you mount the disk to read/write first so everything saves then make it read only when you're finished.. i tried to select all before hand but didnt realize i only got one frame right and had a loop for a few minutes too before i checked again and did them all individually..

    (In school) So this might be my problem on why the phone won't shut down correct?

    Just so you guys know, I have figured out a way to have a video clip play for the shutdown animation instead. I am working on finishing the tool now.

    Thanks, good job. The TV exit is cool but the images are too choppy (since they're arent like 500 images at 25fps)

    sounds like it from my point of view.. first time trying anything like this myself, but if you follow all the steps to anything the guys and gals on here say to do to a 't', you shouldnt have much of an issue.. the following all directions part is what i did wrong before i figured it out and went back in to change all the permissions.. rebooted and everything seems to be almost flawless..

    I have it working. My problem is, I need space on the phone for the file. It will not play from the SD card. I need about 80 MB free, and I already uninstalled most apps, and deleted bloatware and unneeded ring tones. Thinking what I am gonna do
