    Do custom boot animations from other roms work on 7.0? I love Sapphire Roms, but I REALLY REALLY hate the boot animation, its so plain and boring

    You can use any boot animation you like. Just drop it in the /data/local directory. It will play instead of the default boot animation in /system/media.

    I decided to do it the Terminal method...

    Download the bootanimation.zip file and place it in SD Root.

    then open up Android Terminal Emulator

    su
    mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    busybox cp -R /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /system/media/
    chmod 644 /system/media/bootanimation.zip
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot

    only problem is on updates that file will get overwritten

    that's why it's better to put it in /data/local

    Hope cvpcs doesn't see OP. Think he's kinda fond of the boot animation. It's faster than Pete's default imo.

    I've tried out several, some are faster than others.
    But, I'm digging the midnight one from Boot Animations - Droidboots
    There are plenty to choose from.

    Personally I like it for its simplicity. It looks good, elegant, and boots quickly.

    Its actually one of the only boot animations I haven't removed to be replaced by the stock "Android" boot animation. A+ IMO.
