    I just rooted and like an idiot I used "Root Tools" by JRummy to change the boot animation. After realizing that the animations included in that app are not for my huge beautiful display I tried to go back to stock using the app but the backup it said it was going to created didn't exist. I searched the forum and found the huge thread of awesome boot animations to flash, I have tried to flash several of these through CWM and though it looks like it's working the boot animation hasn't changed. Help me please, I'm new. :)

    I have now gone so far as to remove Root Tools from my phone, revoke it's super user privilege and deleted the file from root explorer. I have installed other boot animations directly into the system/media folder area using root explorer and I'm still getting the crappy animation I installed using Root Tools??? I'm going crazy.

    I am not familiar with Root Tools, but perhaps it installed the boot animation to /data/local.

    Make sure there isn't a file called "bootanimation.zip" in the /data/local folder.

    If there is, it will override the one in /system/media
