    Haven't seen anyone do this yet.

    I just copied off the Animation Zip file from the root directiory to my Laptop and opened it up. It has 2 directories inside, one is for the "Droid" Boot and Red Eye screen (Part0) and the other just for the Droid amimated Red eye boot screen (part1). It runs like a slide show and each individual "frame" is a seperate png file.. Part0 direectory has 76 .png files and Part1 has 16 .png files.

    Soooo...I used one of the free animators(it has a watermark on it) will try to find better one later and play with the speed a little.

    :)

    Edit:
    OK, I got smarter and linked both directories together for the full boot animation..

    im not sure what motorola was thinking when they made the eye. but in my opinion its ugly.

    and what does it represent... the all seeing eye of google?

    The eye is some kind of homage to Hal from 2001 I think.

    It hints at some kind of sinister artificial intelligence.

    I think it's cool :D
