    I thought that i just had to place the bootanimation.zip file in /data/local and that was it, but its not working. is there another way?

    I just did a little searching real fast and read that the location for 2.2 is /data/local/ (for non NAND-unlocked phones) and /system/media/ (for fully unlocked phones)

    I have never played with the BA much so I cant tell you for sure but that is what I found. Also its not uncommon for Chefs to move the stuff around in their ROMS so it may be different depending on the ROM you are running.

    Good Luck!

    I am still having trouble with putting the bootanimation from Howto: Root the HTC Droid Incredible - Technology - Jonamerica.com (the Droid X animation) onto my unrevoked3 (root and s-off) incredible. I renamed the bootanimation.zip file from the above site to VZW_bootanimation.zip and adb push it to /system/customize/resources/ sdk tools says 6260255 bytes went over but I still have the old boot animation. Where did the file I pushed go? I mounted /system from clockwork recovery first. What am I doing wrong?

    An easy way: Install the 'Root Explorer' app., very usefull and great app in many ways !
    Now select the bootanimation of your choice and rename to: VZW_bootanimation.zip and install on the SD-Root, if you want sound select the sound of choice and rename to: VZW_Droid.mp3 and install on the SD-Root as well., all this is assuming that you are running Froyo 2.2......now open Root Explorer, select Mount R/O and search for the files, select 'copy' from menu and go to: System/Customize/Resource and 'paste' it there....that will do ! now remember when renaming, no need to add .zip to the script that will happen automatically. Good Luck !

    Ooopsss....maybe I left a small detail out, you might want to change at least one letter of the existing VZW_bootanimation.zip, perhaps to BZW_bootanimation.zip, just to be safe in case you download the wrong one or just feel like going back to the previous one.....just saying !
