    Did you flash it as a .zip or swap out the bootanimation in Root Explorer?
    Do you have a backup of the original boot ani or at least a Nandroid you can refer to? Plenty of ways to get back your old (or other) boot animation.

    im recently new to all this stuff but i know what im doing i always suggest grabbing a nandroid stock backup from woodstock (either b08 or b08c) and with adding boot animations i suggest using root explorer (if your phones rooted) and rename the animation (Bootanimation.zip)* and copy or move it into system/media with the sound rename any MP3 file (Bootsound.MP3)* and place it in system/media/ui
    *without parentheses

    Root Explorer costs money, and that makes no economic sense. I nominate ES File Explorer for being able to use root and auto-mount your file systems.

    You could probably build an update ZIP or two yourself, but if you have custom recovery, you might as well root, move a ZIP on manually, and reboot.

    Anyone have the link and instructions to get back to the Boost Mobile Boot Animation?? I reinstalled the email app using a Zip file from the "All Things Root" section so that I could get my email back (after deleting it) and the install also changed the Boot Animation as well to ANDROID. I want to get back the Boost animnation so that I can return the phone to stock before trying to sell it.

    Thanks!!
