    Hey All, I have noticed that my boot animation, running CleanRom, has gone to the cleanrom (different) one. At one point I think it was still giving me the stock samsung one. Is this an issue I should worry about fixing, or no?

    If the bootanimation is of the multi-colored "X", then that is what is it.
    You can change that animation:)
    Nothing to worry about

    I have several boot animations that I have tried. They all work. Cant get sound to work with them though. Tried moving the sound file around, re-naming it, changing permissions, converting it to .ogg . . . Is the anything different about this rom that doesn`t allow/enable sound @boot ? Just curious . . .

    hmmm, perhaps the rom doesn't allow it somehow?
    Where is the sound file located for it, I would like to try it also:)

    Not sure on that. My wife has a bone stock gs3 v4.1.1 (Verizon) that I would like to root, & browse the directories to find out where/what type/name of the boot animation sound file is. My boot animation (Cleanron 5.5.1) is located in data/local, however it will also work in system/media if I move it there (with no sound of course). I wonder if I`m just missing a command line in the rom to command the sound as well as the animation. I have looked all over & even done a search w/my root browser to locate any sound file & never did.

    I also see the bootanimation.zip in /system/media but I don't see one in /data/local.
    I'm just wondering if the sound file doesn't exist but if it were to exist, it somehow needs to be linked to the bootanimation to play while booting up?
    hmmmmmm....now you have piqued my interest sir/maam :)

    Glad to have inspired you. Sir makes me feel old . . . Maam makes me feel . . . umm . . . well . . . female ! Anyway I`ve been looking into this some - I`ve read articles from needing to install a binary code, to placement of the sound file, to name of the sound file(bootsound.mp3, poweron.ogg,etc.), to type of sound file(.ogg, .mp3, etc)Tried it all. Nothing. Also edited the .desc file in the bootanimation.zip, adding a sound command (s filename.mp3) & adding the sound file in the bootanimation.zip folder. Interestingly, while none of this produced any bootsound, the tweaked .desc file in the bootanimation.zip still allowed the animation to work . . . weird . . . ?
