I came accross a post by MentalDeath (lovely name) over on the Cronos Forum and I though I’d repost it here. It details the installation of your own or custom bootanimation on to your Android phone.

So to push the bootanimation you will need AndroidSDK.

Download the bootscreen you desire to use and place it where adb.exe is located usually in the tools folder of your androidsdk for me C:\AndroidSDK\tools\

Make sure you have USB Debugging enabled on your phone which you should or you wouldn’t get SU permission, and open up command prompt(xp users:start>run>cmd.exe, vista/w7 users: start>and type ‘cmd’ in the search bar) in cmd type:

cd C:\AndroidSDK\tools\   (or where ever your AndroidSDK is located but the \tools\ should be the same
adb remount
adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local

now the animations should be good to go =D

Is possible to do it with root explorer instead of ADB ??? Simply copy to the directory…..


Yes this can be done through root explorer, put the bootanimation.zip on your sd card navigate there and copy it with rootexplorer, then go to the well uh root? of root explorer go to data then local and there should be a bootanimation.zip click ‘mount rw” and delete the bootanimation.zip and then paste the bootanimation.zip from your sd card.

Here is the old boot animation from 1.5.1: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=6MAYNNBS
