    Phone specs:

    -r2d2 obviously
    - android 2.2



    My custom boot animation that I made ( from copy of original r2d2 bootanimation.zip ), isn't working, so currently I have no boot animation.
    I've used AndroidSDK to adb push bootanimation.zip to data/local/ with
    no luck. It says it has done so but no animation is shown.
    Saved & checked desc in wordpad ( WINXP )
    Zipped bootanimation ( no compression ) in 7zip
    but no matter what I do this doesnt seem to be working... anyone have any ideas?

    Is it something I'm missing? Or is there a different method to change
    the boot animation for this phone?

    use a boot animation changer to update it rather than adb. If that doesn't work you haven't made it correctly. What is your custom animation?

    did you make the images yourself, it says custom so I assume you have. Make sure their at the right bit depth aaannnddd you need more then just the desc. in the zip to get it to flash- if that's the way you are doing this

    ^^^ grrr

    artfulfox ; there is a lot to them so don't give up! once you get it, they're awesome. Have you looked at the original images in detail? try your best to keep everything you see there the same.

    Yeah all I did was unzip the original bootanimation.zip & edit the picture files & rezip with 7zip ( no compression ). Didnt edit the desc.txt or anything.
    Replaced the original bootanimation.zip with the one I moded.
    Moved it with root explorer to /system/media ( now no boot animation at all just M logo & then blackscreen until phone loads).
    I tried to replace it back with the original bootanimation.zip still no boot animation.

    I tried to adb push with Android SDK
    but my phone wont let me adb push to /system/media


    I sent to your email XM

    Artfulfox, I got your email. I couldn't get it to work either. I unzipped it and I'm not sure if you have it setup right. I compared it to mine (R2D2 stock) and you have an additional folder that I don't have. As for editing the photos. Did you make sure the resolution and format was exactly the same for each slide? If not, then it's not going to work properly.
