    Would it be possible to compile information about the creation and application of custom splash screens and boot animations for the Incredible in one central sticky? What little I've seen on the subject seems to be spread all over the place and not necessarily in the Incredible sub forums.

    when they say put the file on the "root" of your sd card, is that just on the sd card and in no folder, because i can't get this to work.

    Yes, that's correct. Hboot will look for it there. It won't find it if you put it in a folder.

    then volume down followed by power press very quick and you will get where you want to go and from there scroll down to the desire command and use your trackpad to select, power to go back and such...

    When you put the PB31IMG.zip in the root of your SD Card (It must be the SD Card) you reboot into HBOOT(volume down and power at the same time) ... when HBOOT does its check it will find the zip file and ask if you would like to flash it .. you would press vol up for yes and vol down for no.

    it will flash and ask you if you want to reboot. if it doesnt find your PB31IMG.zip there is something wrong with it.

    Try copying all your folders to your comp and then format your card to fat32 and try it again.

    I recently loaded the Nexus One boot ani on my rooted incred running skyraider 2.5.2 and it caused the phone to continously loop the boot animation. Friend of mine got it going again, but I am curious what possibly caused this?

    I would do what TPR300C suggested then .... copy your SD card to your PC and format the SD card in Fat32.

    Just wondering if you ever figured out what happened. I also changed my boot splash screen and get a continuous loop randomly. A battery pull fixes it for a while
