    I also just made a combination of the blue and red spinning gems alternating...It looks really fast and crazy, so hold onto your seats!

    CRAZY RED + BLUE BOOT ANIMATION!!

    Go to system/media and rename your current bootanimation.zip to bootanimation.bak Then copy the new bootanimation.zip into system/media Thats it!

    You will need to have root and the root explorer app to get to system/media.

    You can just use root explorer and put it in Data/Local, on boot it will look there first and then you don't have to mess with the stock animation. It can be left as is and it won't be used..

    The following threads will back up what I posted:

    Confirming northernmoris' statement. Just place the archive in /data/local/ and disregard the original boot file in /system/media/. The phone looks in /data/local/ first for some reason. If there isn't a boot animation there, then it proceeds to check /system/media/.
