    easy way is to use sdk but keep in mind that anytime you clear data when installing a ROM that requires you to wipe data you will hafta do it over again. Download your bootanimation and make sure you rename it to bootanimation.zip and place it in your tools folder. Then make sure you mount your droid and open up command prompt. Change the directory in cmd prompt to wherever your sdk tools folder is...ex mine is in C:\sdk\tools. Now type ADB Push bootanimation.zip data\local and hit enter. It should show the file push and size and you should be all set...reboot and enjoy

    Check out my post http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/9803-my-boot-animation-3.html#post99811 , it details the steps you are going to need to follow to do it one of the free ways...



    Try putting your adb push command in all lower case instead of starting with capital letters mixed in...little things like that matter sometimes. Other than that, your command looks correct assuming your bootanimation.zip is in your tools directory also...you're close!

    Are you trying to replace the Motorola "M", or the Droid eye animation?
