I'm sure someone will put something user friendly together eventually. I've done it completely on the phone by downloading a bootanimation and then copying it over from the terminal. Is there a way to choose a different download location and save straight to /data/local?
Great Job on the animation!
@mammlouk Mount your sd card to the computer and download the boot.zip there. Afterward, open your terminal on the droid and type
cp yourbootanimation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip
