    I'm attempting to load my own boot animations. Is it even possible with UD?
    I notice that you can select a few custom boot animations, but what if I want to create my own?

    I've attached the bootanimation I want to use to this thread (Its one I'm using as a testing animation), so you can tell me if I'm not creating a good enough archive. I used the "Store" method of compression so it shouldn't be compressing at all. I'm copying the file to a folder on my SD Card, then I'm using the "Root Explorer" feature of ES File Explorer on my phone to move the bootanimation.zip to the /data/local directory

    I then reboot and the Motorola Logo pops up, then a blank screen for a few seconds then it skips right over to my lockscreen, viola phone booted completely bypassing my bootanimation.

    I was able to download and get a few of the boot animations in this thread working, but it still doesn't fix my problem of getting one to work myself.

    (I've got the Droid logo morphing into the Nexus One animation, pretty colorful)

    Ok nevermind I got it working now I'll post one I'm going with atm soon.
    Long story short (ugh), Izarc apparently does NOT work for creating these archives, but 7-zip definitely does.
