    I've been working on this for a while, sadly enough and im seriously ready for some assistance. I just need fresh brand new set of instructions on how to add this boot animation to my optimus v. I have my sdk tools folder. I've got my command prompt. The transformers abd link is right here ------> decepticon_1.02.zip I need some directions please help.

    Place the bootanimation in the same folder as the adb.exe file

    Open your command prompt from that folder and type:

    adb push c:/PATH_TO_THE_FILES/NAME_OF_BOOTANIMATION.zip /data/local/NAME_OF_BOOTANIMATION.zip
    adb reboot

    Or you can do it on your phone with a file manager. Just put it on your sd card then copy and paste to data/local. Make sure your system is set to r/w. That's how I've been doing it and just seems easier than hooking up to the pc and going through all the adb commands.

    I agree with mkbkr1, I either put it on my sd card or use ROMtools to push it onto the phone. Just make sure you have a good recovery like xionia 12518.4 VM Recovery. I was using a different recovery (can't remember which one) and ran into problems when I was testing different bootanimations to see which one I liked better. After like 15 different animations, it just went black where the animation should be. I changed the recovery to xionia and it fixed it. By the way, I never used a command prompt to work on my phone. Hope this helps.

    I use ROMtools so I don't have to use command prompt. Just put your .zip file in the boot animation folder, rename it 'bootanimation', double click ROMtools and enter option 7 and follow the prompts. Only takes a second. Quick and easy with no command prompts!!

    LOL, ROMTools is all command prompt, it's just that it has an interface.

    lol, true. But at least you don't have to type a lot or worry about misspellings or spaces or anything. Just type a number and "any key". That's it!! I'm too lazy to learn and do that command prompt stuff. But I'm sure there will be a day where I'll have to. I don't see anything wrong with either method. Just more choices you have to do what you want to. :D
