    You do not need to root to install a custom boot animation, what you do need is adb push from the android SDK. Read this thread: http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid/29230-decepticon-droid-boot-animation.html it will tell you exactly how to do it and give you links to install ADB. You can find some custom boots at droidboots.com as well as in varying forums (including this one) on the interwebs. Enjoy.

    Ok so next question. Can you use astro to load it on there because I found the bootanimation.zip file and was just wondering. Thanks again.

    Download a custom boot animation and try moving it to that folder. That'll give you your answer.

    You might want to rename the original one bootanimation.zip.old, or something like that.

    Good luck. I promise, as long as you follow the directions scrupulously (I recommend using cut and past for the commands) you should have no problem getting a custom boot.
