    That looks freaking awesome by the way!
    Is there any way to get some frames of just the eye with the two dots going back an forth for the final loading part?
    At the end of the animation you have the dots go to one side and then the other and then end, but if we could get some frames of them going back to the other side and then back to the start again it would make an awesome boot animation for loading!
    Thanks for the hard work!

    My bad everyone, it does need to be in /data/local if you don't have root. The commands should still be pretty much the same, assuming it works the same as the Droid.

    Place the file on your sd card, then in terminal emu type

    mv /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /data/local

    sync
    reboot

    If that doesn't work then the Inc must be setup differently.

    Something is very wrong with this, I put it on my Droid just to see how it looked and not only can you see the "square" in the middle of the screen but it doesn't animate properly at all, it freezes up after like a second or two and looks all messed up.

    pull the boot animation off the incredible and look at the desc.txt maybe something needs to be modified and/or the inc has a different res then what I used. get me that and I can modify. oh and whoever reported my link, not cool :(

    I don't have a Inc handy to do it now but I'll ask my neighbor to borrow his tonight, actually there is a dump of the Inc if you want that, I'm sure it contains the stock boot ani stuff.

    I am downloading that dump now to pull the boot animation off of it. Also I will have to read up on how to read the desc.txt again as I forgot what any of it means lol.

    I know the Droid and Inc res are a tad different but that shouldn't matter because I have used N1 boot ani's and they work fine. Did you load it on your Droid to see what I'm talking about?

    I used the moto droid res so that may be the issue as I know the nexus one and the droid do not share the same info. I will see what i can come up with here..

    I modified the images to the size that the n1 was using and messed with the desc.txt a bit. someone want to give it a try and let me know if it is still screwed up?

    bootanimation.zip

    or

    http://rapidshare.com/files/382697891/bootanimation.zip


    also let me know if any of the images seem cut off as changing the size of the image messed with some things that I may need to fix.

    Yes, there's a whole thread devoted to boot animations over there. Just do a search in that forum

    I tried to see if you could either modify the default.xml or the VZW.gif, but they are read only when you try to push them back with ADB. No luck there.

    For anyone who hasn't figured it out yet, you can follow the instructions from the first post of this thread to customize the animation.

    Custom Boot Instructions

    I know I was trying to do something more complicated than necessary! I didn't try to resize or make my own yet. So far I just pushed the Nexus One animation to my Incredible.

    b00sted4fun, I tried your animation from the mediafire link and it didn't work at first. The part0 and part1 folders are showing as being stored, but the image files are deflated compression. I re-zipped it so that everything was stored and then the animation loaded.

    so are you using any compression when you zip the files? I tried to do it the same way I did on the Eris (which is the link you provided) and no go.

    I've been trying to get audio to play during the boot process...can someone try pushing an audio file named android_audio.mp3 to the /data/local and see if it plays during boot...I'm at work right now and can't try it...
