    Place the .zip on your sdcard

    Rename the file bootanimation.zip

    Open terminal emulator app on your droid and type in these commands

    First line is just two letters

    su

    Then hit enter... that gives you superuser permission on terminal emulator... you can see the command prompt turn red

    Second line enter this string

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

    There are two spaces in that command... like this
    cp(space)/sdcard/bootanimation.zip(space)/data/local/

    Hit enter.... third command is this

    reboot

    Hit enter and watch it work

    Make sure the bootanimation file is not in any folder on the sdcard... it should be it's own standing sdcard file... and don't unzip it

    I noticed you just used capital letters... terminal emulator is all lower case... maybe that's it??

    Are we all talking about the same terminal emulator??

    It's called

    Android Terminal Emulator.... in the marketplace
    Jack Palevich

    There's one that's just called "terminal emulator"
    I heard it sucks and doesn't follow the same rules

    typed everything EXACTLY as proscribed; keep getting the response "cp: cannot stat 'sdcard/bootanimation.zip': no such file or directory

    everything is spelled exactly as it is supposed to be; what am I doing wrong?
