    Yes, although this is considered cheating. :)

    As mentioned above, sure, but it's just as easy to use droid explorer to stick it into /data/local which keeps you from messing with /system more than necessary. ;)

    You should be fine just creating it, that's what I did, but I did it through adb shell and I can't make any guarantees about droid explorer.

    Thanks. The other command actually makes the /local folder.

    ok, im not having any problems putting these animations up anymore (thanks again to everybody who helped) but I just have a question about the file names. is it possible to copy the zip files to the sdk tools folder without renaming and run a command of ./adb push filename.zip /data/local or does it have to be named bootanimation.zip because its replacing the original file named bootanimation.zip?

    I'm just trying to find a faster way of swapping these out and organizing them by just copying them all to the tools folder rather than having to rename files constantly ya know.

    I'm sure a boot animation loader/swapper is or will be in the works soon.

    That would rock for sure, not that I mind doing the other way. I kinda like doing it that way to be honest. Makes me feel like I know something lol.

    In order to push the file without renaming it first just do this:

    ./adb push filename.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip

    How can you stretch the animation to be full screen?
