    Just download one of the older CM ROMS and open up the install zip and pull out the bootanimation.zip file.

    copy the file into /data/local using root explorer, adb, or terminal commands on the phone. Root explorer is easy to use copy/past. Or you can copy the file into /system/media and overwrite the bootanimation.zip that is there now. Either way will work.

    Keep in mind that when putting the bootanimation.zip in /data/local it uses user 'application' memory. When putting the bootanimation.zip in /system/media it uses 'system' memory. So you may want to overwrite the one in /system/media instead leaving more memory for your applications.

    SystemPanel from the market is a good tool for seeing memory partition usage.
