    boot animi is easy to change by taking the bootanimi.zip that you want to use and putting it on the sd card then in phone using a file explorer, I use root explorer copy that file browse to /system/media and change the file system to read write and paste it in, overwritting the current bootanimation.zip

    then reboot. if there is an easier way I really dont know it.

    thanks ill try that. but there was another way. you put it on the sd card. then you use terminal emulator and then you type su for super user but i dont remember what else to type. i think it was cp /sdcard/the name of the boot anim.zip but i dont remember the rest.

    I believe I know, that way is harder though

    you would be using linux command line tools, cp, is copy

    and so it would be cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /system/media/bootanimation.zip

    when i copied the new one it didnt show when i rebooted. where can i find the one i deleted.
    when i boot my phone i get the following in this order:
    1.samsung
    2.samsung galaxy
    3.android
    and then it goes to the home screen. i think i deleted the boost logo. was i supposed to rename the one i copied. right now its 320x480_AndroidParticles1.zip

    The boost logo is the boot animation, stock. the android one you put on would be what your seeing now.
    The samsung, then samsung galaxy you can not get rid of.

    that is another bootanimation. you need that one from blood's theme.

    download his theme look inside and find the bootanimation.zip you will then take that zip as it is and move it to your phone sd card then move it to your phone /system/media folder then reboot.
