I would like to put a bootanimation into my droid but dont know the first thing about doing it maybe someone could help?
*** Please note, this is how I do it, I am not responsible if you type something wrong or otherwise do something which will mess up your droid. You have been warned!
You need to download the boot animation to your sdcard, make sure that it is named bootanimation.zip then there are a couple ways to do this, and you need Terminal Emulator to do them.
1) Open terminal emulator
a) type: su (make sure to allow root access if first time using it) -> enter
b) type: cd /sdcard -> enter
c) type: cp bootanimation.zip /data/local/ -> enter (make sure the / is on the end after local)
d) type: exit -> enter
e) type: exit -> enter
2) open terminal emulator
a) type: su -> enter
b) type: godmode -> enter
c) type: exit -> enter (do this twice)
d) open Astro (or which ever file manager you are using)
e) browse to sdcard and long press on bootanimation.zip -> choose option to copy/move
f) browse to /data/local/ -> long press here and paste
Actually, with Pete's Bugless Beast, all you need to do is put the bootanimation.zip you want to use on the root of your SD card, then go into terminal emulator and type:
That's all there is to it -- I've tried about 10 different boot animations using this method.
Verizon Galaxy Nexus
ASUS Transformer Prime
Rooted/unlocked and overclocked
You can always just put the bootanimation.zip on the root of your sd card and the open the terminal and type "su" then "switchboot"
Its one of petes scripts
