    So, I like to make boot animations. I used to make them often before I got into theming roms and apps. Here's a few that I have for the D1 so far though:

    If not already named specifically bootanimation.zip, they WILL need to be renamed and replace your original bootanimation.zip. There are tons of tutorials on how to do this, but if you need help, please feel free to ask. If you're interested in these being inside of an update zip to flash via Recovery, I can do that too.

    Assassin's Creed:

    This looks something like this:

    But, better quality, little faster, etc. Just giving you a rough idea.

    Batman:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9903887/bootanimationbatman.zip

    This is the general idea of the animation:

    However, it has been improved since that one, just didn't care to update it.
    It ends with this wallpaper:

    Sourcery:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9903887/bootanimationSR.zip

    This is a clip from a cutscene in Epic Mickey for the Wii. It was made with the Sourcery rom in mind for the theme, but it's still pretty cool.

    Cool Loading Screen:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9903887/bootanimationLoading.zip

    This is a loading screen that I found on Youtube (thanks to Nitrammn) and was requested to be turned into a boot animation by an XDA member.

    It looks a little something like this (if you don't want to check out Youtube):

    Droid X Never Miss:

    [​IMG]

    This one is in landscape and is a little larger, so doesn't play quite as fast. Certainly not the speed of the gif...LoL If this needs to be optimized a little more for your phone, let me know.

    Halo Reach:

    From a trailer or cutscene from the popular Halo game. Not really sure which one I got it from, so I'm not including a GIF for this one. It's pretty sweet though.

    Thanks man! There are a few different ways. Easiest is using Root Explorer, if you have it. Just download the zip you want and put it on your SD card, find out where your original boot animation is at and move it to the SD card (or delete it, if you don't want it anymore), then copy and paste the new one into either /data/local folder or /system/media (they both work), and rename it bootanimation.zip. If you don't have Root Explorer then you can download the one you want and put it in here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9903887/PlaceYourAnimationHere.zip

    You'll need an archive manager such as 7zip (Windows) or if you are on Linux, the built in Archive Manager will work. Just open the PlaceYourAnimationHere.zip as an archive and drop the bootanimation.zip right in the /system/media folder. If your rom runs the original animation from the /data/local folder, you will need to delete / move that first before rebooting to test the animation. I believe eStrongs File Manager in the Market has access to this folder and is free in the Market. Let me know if you get stuck!

    You seem like the guy to ask!

    I've spent the better half of today trying to convert a movie clip into still images so I could throw together a boot animation for my Thunderbolt. But just don't have the experience required to figure out adobe software (mind boggled). I attempted to use after effects and premier pro but just couldn't figure them out. I know there is a way to export a movie as images. How are you doing it!?

    Very carefully. ;) Sorry to hear you are having so much trouble though! It's really a lot easier than you would expect. I even use a free program or 2 to do most of the work. If it's an actual movie, or pretty much anything over a few minutes, then you'll probably want to save yourself some trouble by using a video cutter to cut it into more manageable segments. I'm sure there are better ones, but this one does the job for me (though I usually just try to find YouTube vids that aren't too long anyway) Free Video Cutter . Just throw the video in there and wander off to do something else because it might take awhile depending on the original length of the vid. After you have a more friendly length, then you can use another free program called iWiSoft Free Video Converter. Free Video Converter - convert video files between any format, convert video to mp3, convert video to animated gif. Then you can set the output files to whatever format you want. I would suggest jpgs over pngs as the quality difference it neglible (I've shown people both versions of certain animations and they couldn't tell the difference) and the space savings is significant. Although, I suppose you might not have to worry about that near as much with the Thunderbolt as some other phones. You sound like you know what to do after this stage, but if you get stuck, lemme know and I'll point you in the right direction. Good luck! :)

    Cool! Thanks for the great help!

    I'm a little stubborn though and I wan't to be able to do this with my mac and not reboot into windows. But I'll probably give up here in a bit and use windows.

    Another question: I want the movie to be rotated 90 degrees so that it plays full screen on my phone. Short of opening every single jpg and clicking the rotate button, how can I make this happen?
