For those of us who are cheap bastards, there's an alternative to root explorer that I found when searching for root explorer:
I donno if its been posted on the forums or not. (If it's not allowed to say this then feel free to delete my post.) But I figured I would give people a heads up. It let me go into the data/local folders.
Isn't it in
I thought that was where it loads it from, not system/
I moved the boot animation there and rebooted, and all worked well, no ADB needed, didnt use the script, but I did use the animation from the goodies folder, (prior to the fix) I extracted the bootanimation.zip and used root manager to move it there.
Also astro will do it, root explorer is just easier to use (IMO)
P.S. Kangerade 5.0.9 works very well, running .7 pink on my wifes still, working well also- Well done Jrummy16 very well done.
P3 125-1000 kernel 2.6.329-P3Droids
unthemed launcher pro
Pandora working well, Tunewiki, RadioTime, iMusic maps and all apps-

I have bin trying to install the BA of superman and have tried everything to do this and no luck, removed BA from data/local and even BA data/media and different sequence and even run the scripts. No luck! Even did na wipe reinstall of the rom and still couldn't do it. I had been able to change to all the BAs in the jrummy builds but have not been able to install a diffirent one other than the ones givin in goodys file. I pulled the zip file out of supermario n put in superman n did not change the zip at all left it bootanimation.zip n still nothing . I have tried all ways to do this terminal emulator, root explorer, astro, my pc but not adb shell. Cant get adb to work with windows 7. any help is greatly appreciated

I had tried it other ways but for whatever reason it seemed as if I had to have the BA file deleted from /local/data prior to messing with the one in the /system/media folder.
this is how I figured it out.
I removed the bootanimation.zip from data/local using terminal.
Using the script app, only use the install boot animation script from the main menu, do not use the switch bootanimation script
trying to change my boot animation went into scripts and selected switch boot animation and said that it could not be found... how do i go about changing my boot animation then??
