The option to replace is built into Rom Toolbox if that's any good to you

Yeah I'd add the boot animation zip to the ROM before flashing. Add it to system / media if I remember correctly. I'm sure there's tutorials online somewhere if you need more help, try googling it :)

Can you just flash a .zip as it? doesnt seem to be working for me!

no. The zip for a bootanimation is just to keep the jpg s in one place. The flashable zip has to have all the stuff that a normal cwm zip has (updater-script etc). You have to place the bootanimation in system/media (I think) manually.

That's probably because someone made it a flashable zip. If you look in the zip, and there is a META-INF folder, then its probably flashable.if not, then don't flash it, place it manually

Nice to hear :)

Yep. Timfimjim is right, boot animation.zip in the system/media folder works. I changed mine last night :D

Don't know if this helps but I have 926 + vendor update loaded - changing the boot animation wasn't working for this so I decided to be brave & have a snoop around - found the vendor boot files located in /data/cust/media - one file called bootanimation.zip one called bootanimationex.zip.

Tried to overwrite them but could not change permissions (permissions are set as rw-r--r--) using ROM toolbox lite -

At this point I think I am best leaving this to people who actually know what they are doing!

By the way I put a copy of bootanimation.zip in both /data/local and /system/media with no results before I started looking so I assume that the vendor has changed a variable so that these locations are by passed

It was Sebastian's boot animation I was using - this installs to /data/local & I copied to /system/media - didn't work - that when I discovered the additional files.......I think this is because I loaded the vendor update whereas others haven't & that why it works for them.
