    I found it somewhere else too...it's in the new Droid Incredible commercial...could the video be saved or extracted to editable gifs...thinking I could make a boot animation if I could get the images...but I'm not good at getting the images...

    Looked for the vid, can't find it. If someone can provide a link, I can make the animation.

    When I first saw the commercial I looked for the image to put as my wallpaper but I haven't found a big enought picture of it. would be great as a live wallpaper too. I think its clever for verizon to keep playing it similiar to the moto droid eye but then incorporate it with the Incredible's camera lens

    It would be like watching a sweet movie preview before the main attraction.

    You don't need to be rooted to change out the boot animation. Just need to use ADB and do this

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system (it MIGHT be mtdblock3 as this is the partition for the droid where as htc's generally use mtdblock3)

    cd /system/media

    mv bootanimation.zip bootanimation.bak

    THEN IN A SECOND CMD PROMPT DO THIS (NO ADB SHELL THIS TIME)

    adb push bootanimation.zip /system/media/bootanimation.zip

    sync

    reboot

    And your done, it should reboot with the new animation. Oh and that adb push command is assuming you put the bootanimation.zip in the tools folder where adb is located.

    Actually if ADB scares you or you don't have it on your PC you can doo everything directly from the Incredible with terminal emulator from the market. Thee commands would be basically the same...

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    mv /system/media/bootanimation.zip /system/media/bootanimation.bak
    cat /sdcard/bootanimation.zip > /system/media/
    OR
    mv /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /system/media/bootanimation.zip
    sync
    reboot

    It will reboot with the new animation, this way is easier if you don't mind using the virtual keyboard.

    You can mount /system as rw without su permission?

    Also does the Incredible not use /data/local/ for the boot animation?

    I really want to change the boot animation to something else, and I'm adventurous enough to try it, but all that code is greek to me. Can someone point me to where I can get a little more dumbed down instructions? I'd rather do everything from the phone, and not that computer program. thanks

    Bootanimation is in the /system/bin/ folder...if that makes a difference...

    I tried the same method used on the eris but used:

    abd push bootanimation.zip /system/bin/

    and it tells me /system/bin/ is a read only file. Maybe they locked it down so we can't change it?

    I don't think it's a .zip file...I just used Astro to search for boot files and found it in /system/bin/ but not sure if it's bootanimation.zip or not...

    That's the purpose of this command:

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    as listed in CRPercodani's instructions.

    If done with adb it would have to be:

    adb shell "mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system"

    I was under the impression you needed root access to mount kernal space as rw though.
