mods: apologies if this is in the wrong spot... first post...
So, here's my phone:
2.2 Froyo OTA (before rooted)
Rooted with unrEVOked 3
Astro file explorer
Here's my issue:
Attempting to change my boot animation. I searched around quite a bit and followed the general order of things. Downloaded the zip of the android pissing on the apple and renamed it to "bootanimation.zip" and placed in my C:\sdk\tools. I then attempted to adb push said file to /data/local. Command prompt gave me total kB or whatever and it looks like the file was moved. However, I would reboot and same creepy "droid" scenario (altho I do have silent boot applied, so no voice ). I then d/l'd Astro and went looking. Came to find out that under /data there is no folders or files, nor will it allow me to make any there. I read a post on here from dadajack saying that his bootani was actually under /system/media instead so I looked there and low and behold, there it was. But for some reason Astro wouldn't let me rename the bootanimation.zip that was there (I was going to rename to realbootanimation.zip for back-up purposes) nor would it let me copy and paste or move my bootanimation.zip from my SD card to /system/media. Now that I knew where it actually was though, I figured I could just direcly do an adb push of the file to /system/media. No dice. Adb returned an error saying that that location is read-only. Hmm, how does that make sense being that my phone is rooted? I looked under /system/bin and there is the "su" file. So, any suggestions on A) wtf I'm doing wrong and B) what I can do to fix it???
Thanks in advance! Sorry about the post being so long, I just wanted to be as inclusive with the info as possible.
