    OK! soo i might be a little new to this whole thing, but i can't seem to get the boot animation to unzip when in recovery mode it starts to load then it doesn't do anything... i am really new to rooting haha well only 5 days old into it :) i have bricked my phone but i was smart enough to get out of bricked but i guess i am not smart enough to know how to get this boot logo on my phone haha :)

    i am running Apex with Honeybread and have the blue bumblebee logo inplace of the moto logo when starting my phone.. the apex boot animation comes up after that, but i would much rather it be the bumblebee :) so any help would be super awesome :)

    thanks!

    I'm pretty sure this is not meant to be installed like that.

    I am assuming that you have the "bootanimation.zip" file on your sdcard?
    You just need to copy that file to the /data/local (not - /sdcard/data) folder with root explorer or astro file manager, and reboot.
    It should work. I am not running Apex, so hopefully this is correct. :D

    Good luck!

    thanks :) but i couldn't find /data/local in my astro file manger hmm also i am guessing this isn't made to work with CW? thats what i use over the root explorer cause i had issues with REx and decided i didn't want to risk bricking my phone with it hahaha... i guess all i can ask is that if possible making this CW workable :)

    On my phone (a droid x) I don't use /data/local either. I have the bootanimation.zip in /system/media

    Try placing it in there and see if that works for you

    You are right, I just tried Astro and could not see the contents of /data
    You should get root explorer, well worth the money.

    Either that or you could use a terminal to copy the file. slightly harder.
    Download Android Terminal Emulator (free) It might already be on Apex; run terminal emulator:
    Make sure the bootanimation.zip file is on the root of your sdcard
    -type

    su

    It should ask for root permissions, allow it. If the keyboard goes away, don't panic, just hold the hard menu button on the left of the hard home button. then type -

    cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /data/local

    Make sure you put a space between the "cp" and "/sdcard" and also "bootanimaton.zip" and "/data"

    That should do it. :D

    I believe to use the /system/media folder, you will need root explorer and do the "Mount R/W" before placing the bootanimation.zip file there. Astro won't be able to access it.

    You should be able to use /system/media folder and it should work fine. The only difference is that the phone looks "first" in /data/local for bootanimation before looking in /system/media......so if you have something in both folders, it will always play what's in /data/local.

    Thanks for chiming in. I'm definitely no expert. :p
    I always use /data/local for that reason, then if I want to go back to the default boot ani, I just remove the file from /data/local.
    Don't you need to mount r/w for /system/media? Or, do you need to do that for /data/local as well?
    I usually just use the terminal.

    I'm no expert either, I just happen to know that ;)

    If you are trying to edit a file or change permissions in root explorer yeah you would press r/w.....or did you mean something else?

    I thought that if you wanted to place the file into the /system/media folder you would need to mount r/w?
    Otherwise, you would get a permission denied error.

    You might, I can't remember for sure right now, I haven't done it in a while; either way it doesn't hurt to mount r/w ;)

    Yep, I agree, but he is using Astro and it doesn't have that option. Oh well, I hope he gets it figured out.

    Sure!

    Bumblebee_BA.zip

    It will install to /system/media/bootanimation.zip so if you have a bootanimation at /data/local/bootanimation.zip you won't see a change.

    then that means you have a boot animation in /data/local that you need to get rid of. Or wait and I can upload a zip that will replace that one.

    Bumblebee1.zip

    This installs to both /system/media/bootanimation.zip and /data/local/bootanimation.zip. Overkill, I know. But this is the end all solution.
    Before flashing make sure data is mounted in mounts and storage (in CWM) it should read unmount data

    It's much easier if people learn to use root explorer. It's much quicker since only one file is being added/replaced (bootanimation.zip). If it was an animation with sound it would make sense to use a zip since multiple files would be added.

    Oh well, it's just me I guess ;)

    I think he had installed one of the zips I did before, I'm thinking the Propoganda with sound, which installs to /data/local.

    "Overkill" I don't know why, but it cracked me up :p;):D
