    As much as I don't want to do this it is a must

    WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY OCCUR IF YOU INSTALL THIS HACK

    Do you love your Android device as much as we do? Do you wish you could customize it a little to refelect your likes and desires? Well now you can. MyDroiedWorld and Androiddoes member Natemz has created a custom boot animation for your Droid X. It is currently available in only two colors at the moment, Green and Black but Natemz claims there will be more to come. Now remember you must be ROOTED to do this. and the easiest way is to rename the file to bootanimation.zip and replace the existing using file manager. Lets give a big thanks to Natemz for this beauty and hit the links for your color of choice.

    I haven't been very active in the forums here, but I've been lurking since I got my X. I went ahead and Gimped this one to blue for myself and figured for my first post, I would share out to anyone else who wants it. Thanks Shadez for sharing and Natemz for making it.

    Easiest way IMHO is to use Root Explorer to copy and paste it into data/local folder.

    That's it. The phone just reads the zip file. And what file explorer are you using?

    I personally use SU File Manager & Terminal (my debit card doesn't allow transactions not in US dollars :angry:)

    I would recommend placing in data/local. That way you don't overwrite anything. To go back, all you need to do is delete the file. Don't delete/overwrite the one in system/media. It's just my opinion, but this way is easier and safer.

    I just renamed the existing bootanimation in system/media to stockbootanimation, pasted the new one there and everything worked just fine.

    Try deleting and recopying instead of overwriting it. Maybe the wipe, then the clean version of it will get rid of any bugs...?
