Boot Animations

Recommended Posts

I've now got my Pulse as I want it, running Oscillation, with A2SD, Barnacle, etc, etc.

However, I have seen some pretty cool boot animations but after having downloaded them I cant get them to install as it keeps failing.

I am doing a restart and holding down the red key and menu. I am them choosing to flash from zip but each time I try to do this it picks he file up then fails.

What am I doing wrong (sorry sounding thick).

Cheers,

Dave

You have to push them to your device using adb. They go into the /system/media/ folder.

You need the android SDK installed to do this.

This is very complicated.. Hopefully someone will convert the custom boot screens available into and easy to use signed zip.

Someone who knows how to do that could build a generic update.zip with META-INF and whatnot. And we would just put our bootanimation.zips in that update.zip and it would work ;)

Now just to find somebody who is willing to do that :(

That should be easy...

/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF:

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Created-By: 1.0 (me, the great BoBo xD)

Name: system/media/bootanimation.zip
SHA1-Digest: 4/27bjkjnPWSsTxF9/xY+dqGl+E=[/code] Note: the SHA1-Digest has to be regenerated, this is only an example. A SHA1-Digest generator is in our Pulse Dropbox folder. CERT.SF and CERT.RSA are generated by AndroidSign. /META-INF/com/google/android/update-script:
[code]show_progress 0.1 0

copy_dir PACKAGE:system SYSTEM:

show_progress 0.1 10

show_progress 0.2 0

show_progress 0.2 10

That should do the trick (I think, try it at our own risk!).

Just sign it with AndroidSign afterwards and flash it.

Okay, I got it. I should open bootanimation with it and than copy "Schlussel"- key after the "SHA1-Digest:" in the MANIFEST.MF

I'm signing files with Android Commander (it's using SignApk.jar to sign files). Will it generate the CERT.SF and CERT.RSA files like AndroidSign?

P.s. bootanimation.zip should be in the correct folder structure, right? (/system/media)

zip option: normal or store?

Thank you!

Yap, bootanimation should be in /system/media.

Zip option: store

I'm using AndroidSign, and it generates CERT.SF and CERT.RSA.

Android Commander should do it also ;)

PS: I'm right now writing a short tool that makes this all, except signing it. Should be finished in ~1h maximum :(

copy_dir PACKAGE:framework SYSTEM:framework

I've now finished my tool ;)

Try it with that first, if that still doesn't work I can try some other things :(

I guess the errors was that I used "\n" for a new line, but I have to use "\r\n".

Should work now.

This works only for bootanimations or for, let's say, frameworks also?

OMG!!! It's that easy :D Nice little teaser :) Hope it works. Will try now!

This works for all files that are stored in /system/media.

But changing this could be done with very little effort ;)

Best regads,
