    trying to change boot animation without internet connection

    All I want to do is change to the nexus boot animation. I downloaded the android sdk through my phone and installed it on my windows computer. It tries to update when started and won't due to no internet, but won't let me access the phone due to no drivers. So can anyone post thoes drivers or is there some other way to change the boot animation?

    adb isn't needed to change it. open the terminal (on your Droid) and put in this:

    su

    dd if=/sdcard/bootanimation.zip of=/data/local/bootanimation.zip

    just put the boot animation you want on the sdcard before you start. It doesn't matter what it is named on the sdcard. you could name it nexus.zip and just swap out nexus.zip for bootanimation.zip in the if= part of the command, but the of= part always has to say bootanimation.zip. Works good if you have multiple boots you like to switch between.

    Here are the two drivers from Motorola for the 32bit or 64bit windows if you still need them.

    when you open up sdk with the sdksetup.exe it will look for current drivers but that is not needed. As stated above you dont need adb but it would be a good thing to get running. So what you wanna do is download the neccessary driver attached above and install it on your computer. Next, open command prompt and cd to the directory where your tools are located. (eg. mine is C:\android\tools> but I think the stock folder is /android-sdk-windows/tools) once you are cd'd to your tools directory type adb and hit enter to see if it all worked (should give a big list of commands). If that happened then your all set. What I do is place the bootanimation.zip (needs to be named this) file into your tools folder then in command prompt just type this:

    adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local

    That should do it.

    Is your phone set to USB debugging and allow installation of unknown sources??
