    Maybe I missed this and if I did, can you please point me to the right link but just rooted and flashed to the latest ROM (thanks everyone for the guide and ROM) and wanted to know how to add the N1 boot animation instead of what is has now.

    This doesnt help me very much. I know nothing about Linux. Im guessing I have to get to that folder some how and then extract the zip from one place to another. Do you know of a place that has the commands? Just afraid to fubar something up since I know very very lil of linux. Thanks for posting the link though. Its got me in the right direction

    Mount your sdcard to your computer. Make a folder called "bootscreen" and extract the zip files from that link on XDA into that folder. Unmount your sdcard.

    Open a command prompt, go to your tools directory, type this in order:

    adb shell
    su
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    rm /system/media/bootanimation.zip
    mkdir /system/media/bootscreen
    cp /sdcard/bootscreen/* /system/media/bootscreen/
    reboot

    Enjoy your new bootscreen. :)

    (afterwards you can delete the bootscreen folder off your sdcard)

    What is the * for in the copy command? I don't believe I put that in my command, so I'm just curious.

    Good to know, thanks. I forgot I copied each file individually.

    Ok open a command prompt if your on windows
    point it to your tools directory something along these lines
    cd android/tools
    then just do the adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local
    or do you have root explorer?
    If you do just copy the boot animation to your sd card and then copy it to your data/local folder with the root explorer.

    Sweet, that fixed it. Thanks.

    EDIT: Do I need to keep deleting the file bootanimation.zip from the phone or will it just overwrite it?

    This requires root. Someone said it didn't, but it does.
