    I know in elite settings you can change your boot animation, but for some reason it will not work for me so I want to do it manually. Where are the animations stored so I can move them, and even better, where do I move them to. There is nothing in /data to move them to.

    thanks jc, but I don't for the life of me have a local directory in data. I would have to create which is no big deal. I guess if I do that, will the rom know to use those directories for the boot animation?

    I'm having the same problem. I try to "Install *name* Boot Animation" and it just sits there saying "Please wait... Performing Operation". I tether it to my computer to view files, and I can not find a data/local or system/media directory. What am I doing wrong?

    what are you using on the PC to view those files? those files are a part of the system files that are on the phone, not on the sdcard.

    I realized that. And it took an hour, but I let it sit and it finally downloaded. The phone restarts and opens with the animation I picked. But it doesn't say Enabled, or even installed. It still says "Install *name* Boot Animation", and "Preview" under it.
