How to replace the boot animation

Recommended Posts

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.

oohhh it used to work on my blade?

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

Sebastian404 has a post with boot animations which does work

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.
