    Is it possible to make a customized script in the BB Toolbox Script Helper? In other words, if I want the script to change my bootanimation all I'd have to do is use the script rather than open a terminal emulator and type:
    su
    cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip

    Ok here's what I did.

    Download GScript Lite from the market.

    Create a new script with this in it:

    Make sure the bootanimation.zip you want is in the root of your SD Card.
    It
    1) Makes a backup of your old boot animation (Just in case)
    2) Copies the one you want to put on
    3) Reboots the phone.

    Hope that helps!

    BB toolkit already has a switchboot script, just put the boot animation you want on the root of your sd card, name it bootanimation.zip, then run switchboot from the bb toolkit. No need to make a script.

    Ahhh, that's what the switchboot script is for. That makes sense. Thanks!

    switchboot pulls your old boot animation and puts it on your sd card and installs your new one
