    Hey guys. I just rooted with Unrevoked (brand new one) for my first time and everything went smoothly. Got all bloatware removed (except for VZ apps and Slacker, anyone know the commands btw?)

    Anyways, I was changing my boot screen and it wont change for me. I've followed tutorials to the exact letters and still cannot figure it out. It keeps loading up the stupid android eye :( Anyone have any tips or did they block this on the new OTA?

    Thats the one I used. I'll try to redo it when I get home from work, hopefully itll work this time. I did change it to VZW_bootanimation.zip as well, so hmmm... hopefully itll just work 2nd time around haha

    You can use Root Explorer also.

    I have this same problem and it has to do with zipping the package. I can take one that someone else has made and it works fine. I can unzip one of those and rezip it, and it won't work.

    Winrar and 7zip are, as of now, giving me no luck. I'll let you know if I come up with something.

    I think thats whats happening to me too, since I followed the tutorial EXACTLY. Only other thing I did was unzip it to look at it :O

    What is this? I've never heard of Root Explorer before.

    It's an app ($4.00 on the market, IIRC) that allows you to browse your file system.
