1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Without getting into too much detail, here's the short of it....

    On Dec. 19th will be the 1 year anniversary of my Daughter's death. My wife and I are Still struggling to accept it. If anyone would be able to create a custom Boot for me, I would appreciate it more than you would know. Attached is the image, feel free to do whatever you'd like to it (i.e. effects and whatnot). Here's a little more information if you'd like to place it somewhere as well.

    Name: Sadie
    Passed away: 12/19/2009

    idk what else to really say. I understand this is asking a lot for someone that I don't even know to do for me, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. I saw that there is a thread on how to do this, and it's not because i'm lazy by any means, I just really don't have that kind of time. Thank You to everyone who took the time to read, and/or consider this.

    Atticus, I am very sorry for your family's loss, losing someone is extremely hard to get through. There are a lot of talented poeple on here so you should have a boot image in no time.

    Thank you both. This was the first forum I every joined after purchasing my droid. I knew if any place had the talent and willingness to help others, it would be here. The vast majority of people that belong to this forum are Always willing to help with little to no gain for themselves.

    I'm going to give it a shot..... I have done a little bit with boots before. And I have a little time. I'll see what I can come up with.

    If your talking about boot logos I've used http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/91243-droid-1-boot-logo-generator.html to make some in a few mins. I'll try to attach a zip that includes the image and an sbf of one I made. I flashed the sbf using rsd lite and it worked on my droid. I'm sad to hear of your loss. My little sister experienced the same and is now expecting her 3rd. Best wishes to your wife and you.

    So forgive my ignorance... Is this one of those files that would be the same as bootanimation.zip? That I would just place in the appropriate directory, our do I just go ahead and flash it?

    The sbf is just a boot logo. Unzip to find the sbf and flash it with rsd lite to replace the M logo on start up.

    If you want something to replace the boot animation I could make you one. I'm not good with the 'animations' yet so it will be a still picture.

    atticus I cannot offer anything but felt so moved to post here to express my heartfelt sorrow for such a loss to you and your wife.

    I do not have children and I cannot even imagine what you went through. The only thing I can offer you is an "I'm very sorry for your loss." I don't know what else to say.

    I wish you and your wife the very best. Life must go on and I hope you both can stay close and get over this tragedy together. Again, I'm so very sorry.

    Thank you Cereal for the kind words. And that's really what every one wonders. No one really knows what to say, and to be honest, I don't even think I know what I'd like someone to say. It's been a Very slow process, some Ups, many more Downs, but we'll get through it together...one way or another.

    Thank you again.

    1.Rename file sadie.zip to bootanimation.zip

    2.Copy or Move File

    3.Go to System/Media

    4.Select Read/Write setting

    5.Paste and click OK to overwrite(possibly copy this to another directory for a backup or simply rename to .bak before overwriting/pasting or you will lose the bootanimation already in your phone)

    6.Long press to generate menu and select permissions

    7.Select rw-r-r or use all permissions

    8.Select Read/Only setting

    9.Reboot and Enjoy:yahoo:

    Another option is to:


    put the bootanimation.zip, using terminal into data/local ...
    typing command:

    #su
    #cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /data/local/

    Keep the spaces it won't work without them also do not type the # symbols
    # = superuser privileges
    $ = no super user privileges


    My heart goes out to you, I hope you like this animation. Just click the preview to download.

    Oh my god ...that is absolutely beautiful. You got me all teary eyed. I can't wait to show my wife this. I can't say Thank You enough. Honestly, what you have just done, is one of the sweetest things anyone had ever done for me. I owe you.

    In my thread in the liquid section:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/liquid/98019-loving-memory.html

    I posted this for you:

    No prob. I was honored to do it. My heart goes out to them. I can't imagine how I would cope with the pain of such a loss as I have a son who is eight myself and he is my whole motivation in life.
