    BB Script Helper

    Is it possible to make a customized script in the BB Toolbox Script Helper? In other words, if I want the script to change my bootanimation all I'd have to do is use the script rather than open a terminal emulator and type:
    su
    cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip


    This is my phone. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me my phone is useless. Without my phone I am useless.

    Ok here's what I did.

    Download GScript Lite from the market.

    Create a new script with this in it:

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    cp /system/media/bootanimation /sdcard/boot_animation/bootanimation_backup.zip
    dd if=/sdcard/bootanimation.zip of=/system/media/bootanimation.zip
    reboot
    Make sure the bootanimation.zip you want is in the root of your SD Card.
    It
    1) Makes a backup of your old boot animation (Just in case)
    2) Copies the one you want to put on
    3) Reboots the phone.

    Hope that helps!

    BB toolkit already has a switchboot script, just put the boot animation you want on the root of your sd card, name it bootanimation.zip, then run switchboot from the bb toolkit. No need to make a script.

    Ahhh, that's what the switchboot script is for. That makes sense. Thanks!

    true but does it make a backup?

    also, I didn't see that feature but I was looking for an app that let me make custom scripts anyway =]

    switchboot pulls your old boot animation and puts it on your sd card and installs your new one
