    It was a problem with your desc.txt file...use the one attached to this post and you should be good to go...added another line with just a p...

    Worked great! someone may want to edit the original post to have that extra 'p' where he tells you how to create the desc file. If you copy and paste like instructed you will be missing the last 'p' like i was.

    THANKS!

    That's odd, shouldn't be necessary, I have plenty of bootanimations without an extra line.

    O.k. I will get it uploaded tonight. Do you want it just how it is, or do you want it to say "Starting Android..." or something?

    Here it is. I pulled it straight from the youtube video without modifying it. The only changes I made were to cut the number of frames down to one animation cycle and loop it. I also set the resolution in desc.txt up to 480 x 360 (1.5 times the original 320x240) so that it would be upscaled by the droid. If you were hoping for higher quality let me know and I will see what I can do. This animation has been tested on my droid to ensure that it works. Don't forget to rename it from bootanimation_win7.zip to bootanimation.zip or the droid won't recognize it.

    Awesome. I love it. It would be easier to read if it was bigger. But I wont be picky if you don't want to mess with it. lol Besides I'm guessing it would make it blurry if it was bigger...

    Sorry, I didn't download the "HQ" version, let me see if that makes a difference. I was thinking about just making a bootscreen for it from scratch if I have time tonight, no promises though.

    O.k. the HQ one looks slightly better, but it's still really small. I tried cropping it and got it to a better size, but after I deleted excess frames I realized that it should be a two part animation since there is a fade in at the beginning. I went to pull the frames again and ffmpeg started giving me errors. :icon_rolleyes: I am about to head home and my PC at home is much more stable and reliable so I will rebuild the new animation for you tonight after spending time with the family. ;)

    Someone probably already did this but I made an animation of the droid peeing on apple that is shown on the 1st page as a background (white pee, fancier apple). This is a bit different than the animation that is in the original post.
