Post 2.2 and Custom Boot Animation / Sound

    So prior to manually installing the 2.2 update, I had a custom boot animation with sound. The update ran fine, no issues, and I knew I would have to re-install the custom boot animation files. However, I followed the same steps as I did prior to 2.2 (see below), and again, no errors. After reboot, I'm still seeing the Sprint 4G boot screen. Can anyone else confirm? Looks to me like it's been locked down.

    From XDA:
    adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local
    adb push android_audio.mp3 /data/local
    adb reboot

    I am also experiencing the same thing after the update.

    first off, that's the wrong place to be placing the files lol
    that is one of 2 locations that the phone uses as a "back up" if it's missing from the first location. try /system/customize/resource

    and you also don't need adb unless that's just easier for whatever reason. i load the files onto sd card, use root explorer to move the current boot zip and then move the new one and sound file to that place.

    anyway, try that and then see if it works.

    edit: after the OS looks in the resource spot, it then looks here

    and then the local spot mentioned in the OP

    will /system/customize/resource work if you are not rooted? The advantage of the OPs method was you didn't need root.

    not sure, but this is why it's not working for the OP
    i don't use adb because i couldn't get it set up properly. it's something someone un-rooted would have to try out

    edit: just a quick look using root explorer, the folder permissions are different meaning yes, you would need to be rooted to push the files to that folder
