    Could somebody plz lend a hand. I don't know what im doing wrong; but I can't seem to get these bootanimations to work. Im rooted and tried installing both through root explorer app and through the prompt on my pc, trying that adv push. Just can't seem to get it.

    It will help if you give a detailed explanation of the process that you have tried so we can eliminate any wrong steps :wink:

    Are you placing the bootanimation.zip in /system/media.....and if you are and you still have your original bootaniation...check that there is not one in /data/local if there is delete it. That should do it..unless you are found sound or you maid this and your getting a black screen

    I downloaded a bootanimation.zip, that plugged in my droid. Put it in pc mode; made sure debugging was on and dropped the file on my sdcard, disconnected my droid. Went through root explorer moved and pasted it in data file then local. And than reboot.

    What about through adb push does that work at all? Going through the pc prompt?

    If you have terminal emulator you can do it with that too. I am not at my PC right now but if you want directions let me know ...

    OK - On my first reply I was on my phone playing around with the DF app and didn't realize this was in the DX section ... I do not know for sure this process works with DX (I've done it successfully several times on D1), but I don't see why it wouldn't. Here's what you do:

    Rename the .zip to bootanimation.zip and place on the root of your SD card.

    Open up your terminal emulator and type in these commands

    su (hit enter)

    cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip (hit enter)
    [ ^ notice the spaces------^]
    reboot(hit enter)

    let me know if that works for ya ... kinda curious if it'll work on the DX as well

    good luck :)
