The Droid will scale the images to fit whatever size you designate in the desc.txt
If you attach your zip file someone will tell you what's wrong.
Interesting, that never would have occurred to me. I created another desc.txt file using notepad++, inserted the lines
480 480 8
p 0 0 part 0
You said the issue might be with the line endings, what would I need to do in notepad++ in order to change that? Just using notepad++ instead of the regular notepad didn't do me any good.

Ok, I'm sorry, but this is the most confusing tutorial I've ever had to attempt to follow. The way you write this all implies that you're doing the whole thing on your computer, am I right in assuming that? If the whole thing is done on your computer how the hell is the adb shell supposed to know what phone it's pushing to? I just did exactly this:
I have a bootanimation.zip file containing a custom boot animation, the desc.txt file is correct, the files are named properly, it is a valid boot animation. I copied it to my android-sdk-windows/tools/ folder, then in command prompt opened up that folder. I typed in this exact command:
adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local
And the message I got...:
error: device not found
Well no ****. My Droid is plugged into the computer. It is not rooted, and it is currently mounted. You didn't specify anywhere in your tutorial how to connect the droid to the computer, or even anything about the device at all. Am I changing the boot animation on the android virtual device, or on my physical Droid device? I want to change it on my Droid.
Please explain what I'm doing wrong. I've obviously either read something wrong, or you wrote something that I'm just not understanding.
And before the "noob get out" comments start flying, I've been using shell for years administrating my server, so I do know what I'm doing, this just makes no sense.

You only really need the USB driver and not the charging driver.
Then in your shell make sure the command "adb devices shows your phone available"
You don't need to have your SDCARD mounted for this, but it won't hurt.
If "adb devices" showed your phone then you should be able to use the "adb push" command as previously mentioned. If it doesn't work then post back here and I'll keep trying to help you sort it out.
Anyway, I got it working, replaced the boot animation with the first one I could find, to test, then replaced the original one back until I can find one I really like.
Alright so i'm at work and cant isntall SDK, I'm trying to push this boot animation thru terminal. I unrooted my phone recently, not sure if that matters. But when i try and access ADB thur terminal it says permission denied. can someone break this down for me or maybe i'm just retarded haha
