I am rooted and have a droid 1.
So I recently read about boot animations and how it's soo easy to do so I decided to give it a shot. I downloaded the Droid X animation ( Download: DROID X Boot Animation - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog ) And used these instructions:
1. You have to be rooted in order to do this. (Rooting info here.)
2. Download Root Explorer from the market. (It’s a paid app.)
3. Download the Droid X boot anim: bootanimation.zip
4. If you downloaded via PC, mount your Droid and drop the .zip file onto your SD card.
*DO NOT UNZIP OR RENAME*
5. Unmount your Droid.
6. Open Root Explorer, tap on “sdcard” and locate bootanimation.zip.
7. Long press on bootanimation.zip and choose “Move”.
8. Hit the back button once and locate the “data” folder.
9. Tap and open “data” and then “local”.
*If your /data/local/ folder already has a bootanimation.zip then you can skip to step 11. If it is missing, proceed to step 10. We need to find it!
10. Since you did not have a bootanimation.zip in your /data/local/ folder we need to find it. There is a search function in Root Explorer which can find it. Or, you can navigate straight to /system/media/ which is where I found mine. Once you find it, return to your to your SD card, long press on the bootanimation.zip that you downloaded and select “move” one more time. Now navigate to the folder which is holding your current bootanimation.zip and proceed to step 11.
11. Hit “Paste” which should be an option at the bottom of your screen.
11. If there is already a bootanimation.zip file, let Root Explorer overwrite it.
12. Back out of Root Explorer, reboot your phone, and BAM!
13. Enjoy your first ever Droid X boot animation.
I found and deleted the old bootanimation.zip I found in /system/media/ and pasted the downloaded one to /data/local/
Now when I reboot my phone there is no animation after the M motorola icon. Even getting the old bootanimation back now would make me happy. Help?
