    Because you have to manually install it, it's not an CWR zip file.

    There were two files. One was bootanimation.zip., which I know in data\local (old school). I noticed another file that said "sound". What's that about and where does that go? Anyone know?

    It does not install in cwr, you have to do it manually.

    Copy the bootanimation to data/local using root explorer. Be sure to rename the old one to bootanimation.bak or something first, then paste the new one in.

    Copy the sound file if you want (though its lame) to System/media/audio/notifications.

    Reboot.

    Enjoy.

    Having a droid x, I don't feel worthy enough to install the bionic boot animation. On another note. I live in NJ. Concerned about the approaching storm. Sorry to be OT. Please don't respond to this. Just letting off steam/concern to my friends in this section.

    I thought you were referring to the sound portion of the question.

    It's just an animation..install it and try it out! :)

    As for the storm, it will hit my part of VA tonight. I'm glad I don't live close to the river. :/

    Just tried it out on my X, looks sweet! I'm sure it's even better on the Bionic though.....kind of like having an HD channel on a non-HD TV :)

    I found the bootanimation.zip in system>media folder. Just rename the stock one .bak and copy/paste the new one in.

    Got animation working but sound won't play, I've tried several times now to paste it into notifications, my old animation was stock CM with no sound could that have something to do with it?

    Put the sound in the system/media along with the bootanimation.zip and put it in the system/media/audio/notifications folder. Thats what worked for me.

    I kinda agree with that sentiment, but I also just really like my current "Call of Android" animation...
