    I'm using PE v501

    I want to use my own Boot animation, I pushed it to the phone, but it won't play on reboot. The screen is just black, probably where the animation's supposed to be. If I install the boot animation that's included on the rom, they work just fine.

    any solutions?

    yea thats where i have mine being pushed also. why dont you try putting a different ba in there and see if that one plays. if so then maybe something is wrong with your ba that was causing the all black screen.

    Did you try just putting the boot animation in /system/media?

    tried system/media/, adb said there's no space LOL

    retried data/local/, transfers, but doesn't show aniimation on boot.

    I also tried different BA's and my own custom one, still get the same issue.

    Moto logo pops up, a brief black screen and vibrate, and goes directly to sleep or into system with usb on. It can't be because it's booting fast is it? takes about 18 seconds....from reboot.

    One quick question, does pe 5.0.1 have the ability to disable boot animation cause that is why my phone does and that is because I have boot animation disabled, that's is what it sounds like to me

    ok....I tried a Cyanogen boot animation, it works, I guess it depends on the animation files....

    anyone have a Derrick Rose boot animation? I tried to make my own, but I guess it ain't working....

    ok, I got the correct desc format, using boot animation previewer, but I can't test the animation in the viewer, but it did spit out the desc file....

    I'm thinking maybe the animation is too big/long? is there a limit?
