    do you have root explorer? if not i would get it. there is a search feature in the app that will allow you to look for it. the devs seems to put the bootanimation file in various places.

    if you do not have i suggest that you get it. it is a very useful tool, especially if you want to change boot animations. the file will be named hTC_bootanimation.zip or bootanimation.zip. unfortunately i'm not on this rom right now.

    so dak
    Id look for folders in the o.s. titled system, then look for media. Thats where it is in CM7, but will likely vary a bit in other roms (esp sense absed roms) its either gonna be in system or sys. I havent run a sense rom in a while since switching to this Sony Experia based version of CM7 a while back (which btw is badass when combined with a slightly older verion of tiamat sbc!!!)

    I am on this rom and I am working on the issue myself too, Mik has apparently hid the darn thing somewhere, just have to look for it, fixing to hook it up to the laptop as I speak, got the boot sound changed just have to locate the animation files, will let ya know when I figure it out.

    a much better app is root explorer. but it is not free. it has a great feature it can search the system partitions that make it easy to find the bootanimation files. Root Explorer (File Manager)

    every rom has the location differently. the search function makes finding the file a cinch.

    Ok ill get it, i thought i bought it and used it on my old phone so it should be free anyway since i paid once. Now the problem im wondering, is it because i am not on a custom rom?

    as long as you are rooted you have access to the entire system partition so that is not the issue. the bootanimation file is there you just need to find it. i'm just not sure where it is on the stock rom though.

    they are usually named hTC_bootanimation.zip or bootanimation.zip and on occasion i have found a few to be named SPC_animation.zip as well.
