    Very nice! I was actually going to miss the Cyanogen boot animation you created when I switched to Fab's NexBeast ROM (just didn't feel right putting it back on there :D). Nice to have a "generic" droid boot animation from you. Thanks...it looks great!

    As Tony would say "It's Grrrrreat" and I know Tony said "They're Grrrrreat" but that does not really fit here since it's only one.

    Wow I'm old...

    Damn you make the best boot ani's ever! Did you think about using a red Android robot with a white outline? I think it would look even hotter that way (if its even possible for this ani to be any better).

    Thanks man, glad you enjoyed it so much. Originally I had a red android with a beveled edge in the final frames. However, even though it still looked awesome i felt like there was too much red and the glowing red "eye" in the background blended too much. Plus I just thought the original green android would add a nice touch.

    I'll put my vote in for leaving the green android. I agree that it would be a lot of red. Plus...the fat green droid is becoming iconic :D

    There is a cool LWP on, not sure, maybe Cyan ROM? - that has the little android sticking out sideways. If you've seen it you will know how cool it looks. If you add the android bot, consider that design.

    I love this one - thanks!

    Hmm posted this at Droidforums, but I'll give it a shot here as well. Have never replaced my bootanimation.zip and I'm trying it at the moment. I can't seem to do anything with it using Astro File Manager because the bootanimation.zip in /system/media is read-only.

    I've tried these commands in terminal:

    Code (Text):
    1. $su
    2. #cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /system/media/bootanimation.zip
    3. cp: can't create '/system/media/bootanimation.zip': File exists
    4. #mv /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /system/media/bootanimation.zip
    5. mv: overwrite '/system/media/bootanimation.zip'? y
    6. mv: can't remove '/system/media/bootanimation.zip': Read-only file system
    7. #chmod +w /system/media/bootanimation.zip
    8. chmod: /system/media/bootanimation.zip: Read-only file system
    That's about as far as my Linux knowledge goes. How come I can't manipulate anything if I'm logged in as su?

    I do it all the time using Root Explorer:

    1. Copy the bootanimation.zip and paste it into /system/media (replace the bootanimation.zip that's already there) -- you'll need to press the button on the top right that says "Mount R/W".

    2. Long-press on the newly pasted bootanimation.zip file and select Permissions.

    3. Change the permissions to User: Read - Write, Group: Read, Others: Read

    4. When you click Okay, you should see "rw-r--r--" in the fine print under the .zip name.

    5. Click the Mount R/O button, then reboot.

    Thanks y'all, root explorer was a piece of cake. Still wondering why I couldn't modify file permissions through terminal as su?

    Remember you can put it in /data/local to save on space in /system and you don't need rw permission.

    Thanks. I didn't see a bootanimation.zip in /data/local so I just assumed that I had to replaced the one in /system/media.

    Question...I want to load this boot animation, but is Root Explorer the only file manager that will work? I've been using Astro File Manager. Will Astro give me access to local/data? Thanks.

    No, you need su privileges, and Astro doesn't have that. If you don't want to use a paid app you can do it through Terminal Emulator. I'm assuming the bootanimation.zip is on the root of your SD card

    In Terminal Emulator:
    su
    cat /sdcard/bootanimation.zip > /data/local/bootanimation.zip
    reboot

    Thanks. I actually did this before reading the post. I'm quite familiar with scripts and I thought I'd just give it a try. It worked!
