    I'm a bit stump on this one....

    When I was using Liberty GB, I noticed that when I changed the boot logo, a copy of the file was saved to my SD in a .bin format.

    After doing some searching, I can only find methods to replace the boot logo in a flashable .zip format.

    Without having to reinstall Liberty, is there anyway I can replace my current boot logo (the Moto "M") with the .bin file? I'm guessing with ADB?

    Umm, Are you boys done?......lol.......can you post a few screenshots of this boot logo? I don't think I have ever seen it.

    EDIT: Have you guys ever seen the unstable core boot ani? that thing is hot but I can't find it for the life of me.

    I haven't done it yet. I'm debating on whether I should try my hand at making it a flashable zip or not.

    Thank you!!

    That worked perfectly. It's no longer available in the market, so I had to do some extra searching in order to find it. ;)

    Boot animations such as the "Unstable Core" above, I would use one of these methods:

    ADB
    - Install the android SDK
    - Open Command Prompt
    - Locate the SDK tools folder where ADB is located (example: <cd c:\android-sdk-windows\tools>)
    - Now enter the following code in Command Prompt
    Code (Text):
    1. adb remount
    2. adb push c:\temp\downloaded_bootanimation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip
    3. adb reboot
    Terminal Emulator
    - Connect your phone to your computer via USB
    - Copy the downloaded file to your sdcard
    - Disconnect phone from computer
    - Open Terminal Emulator on your phone and enter the code below (press enter after every line)
    Code (Text):
    1. su
    2. cp /sdcard/downloaded_bootanimation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip
    3. reboot
    Root Explorer
    - Connect your phone to your computer via USB
    - Rename the downloaded file to 'bootanimation.zip' and copy to your sdcard
    - Disconnect phone from computer
    - Open 'Root Explorer'
    - Copy/Paste the /sdcard/bootanimation.zip to /data/local/ (make sure it's read/write)
    - Reboot

    Yes, but it didn't have the logo I was referring to and the file formats are .zip
