    I was looking for a specific boot animation that i had seen on youtube using the star trek lcars and when i googled it i found a link to xda (no surprise) anyway, I was able to flash it like i would a ROM or kernel, i didnt have to use adb or anything.

    Is there a collection of flashable boot animations? or was this a unique circumstance?

    *oh, and "Revive old thread!" :)

    behind you
    Wait, so how exactly do you 'install' a new animation? I tried reading..
    Do you copy/paste and replace the original files on your phone?
    Or do you flash the zip via Clockwork/Amon...?
    thanks :D

    That's the same question i had, it seems that some are made to flash while others are just the animations and possibly the sound byte to go with it. I had downloaded a flashable boot animation earlier and got to thinking that i could use the zip file to install any animation i wanted by simply copying the file and replacing the animation folder and .mp3 with what ever animation i had downloaded then re-zipping. I tested my theory and it work, i was able to flash a different boot animation using recovery.

    from the bootanimation files i have seen, they are not flashable like a kernel or rom.

    you have to install these via a tool or manually by adb.

    ya'll should really learn to use the adb commands, its really simple, you only need three

    start->run->cmd to open command window
    change the directory to sdk\tools where the bootanimation.zip is contained
    type:
    adb remount
    adb push bootanimation.zip /system/media
    adb reboot

    done
