    This was all made by another user named Big Lou. He did an awesome job at making this easier for everyone, so feel free to PM him and say thanks. I'm merely copy and pasting.

    Saw that a lot of people were having trouble with boot animation. I was a total noob to all of it about 2 days ago, but I found a tutorial that was dumbed down right to my level :). Good luck, guys. I'll hang around and answer any questions that I can.

    wow i still need help :( i now have no boot animation at all. i really felt like i followed all the directions. when i tried to push the first time, it said no such file or something, so i changed the file name to bootanimation (no .zip) then pushed again and it worked...... but now no animation at all.....

    update: i was compressing the wrong folder. i noticed this when i would double click on the .zip folder i made, there was a folder inside nexus_bootanimation inside that was the actual boot folders, so i compressed those folders instead and named it bootanimation.zip redid the push and all is well.

    thank you for finding this tutorial

    Do you have to have a rooted droid in order to use a custom boot animation?

    You may want to give me sometime to figure that out. I have a feeling there's an easy way to do it, but I'll ask around.

    Just delete the bootanimation.zip from /data/local

    Code:
    adb shell
    rm /data/local/bootanimation.zip

    Yes! I had the same problem. Go to your setting and click the option that has something to do with force and then load again
