    Hello all. :)

    So... I finally figured out how to make my own boot animation. I have all the images and put them in the part0 folder (I just replaced the files in the Mario boot animation). Loaded them onto my SD card and placed the zip file in both locations (data/local and system/media). When I restarted my phone... nothing happened. It was just blank after the Motorola screen.

    Any ideas as to why it didn't work?

    Chevy Kernel

    Thanks for the help.

    Anyone have any ideas as to why this isn't working? The only thing I could think of... is something in the desc file. But I know nothing about what's supposed to be in the file.

    try just putting the zip file on the root of your sdcard, then go into Term Emu and type:

    su
    cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /data/local/
    reboot

    it's worked for me every time i flash a new rom...

    try this

    you had an extra 'p' in desc.txt

    also make sure when you .zip it up, you choose 'store' for the compression method

    None of those seemed to work. Just downloaded the new file and used TM to copy it.

    Could using the custom boot animation in Ultimate Droid have an affect on this working?

    this one works 100%

    the size of the .pngs was wrong. you had 265x455, but it should be an equal division of 480x854. i chose 200x356

    also seems like desc.txt needs 3 lines. its odd, but it works with a blank (but existing) 3rd line, and not with only 2 lines

    ie.
    480 854 20
    p 0 0 part0
    (blank line)

    edit: you might want to remake your images. i noticed it kinda jumps around. im not sure if thats due to me resizing the images or a pre existing thing

    Ahhhh!!! Thank you very much! You rule. :)

    And yeah, I noticed that. It's in the original. I need to fix that. This was mostly just a test run to see if it would even work. Haha.

    Thank you again for your help. I really appreciate it. :)
