    Are you on the leak or the OTA?

    How exactly are you installing them? I'm on the new OTA GB and my animation works fine...

    Ya it's custom. I'm assuming these are animations that worked for you before? Have you made any changes at all to the files themselves? Also assuming that you're using the proper files, ie flashable vs non flashable... If nothing else, could you upload a couple for me to look at and test?

    Just downloaded it direct to the phone, moved it to /data/local, renamed to bootanimation.zip, and rebooted. Worked just fine. Maybe try re-downloading...

    If it still doesn't work, try putting it in /system/media. Rename the one in there (stock) or put a .bak on the end and rename the new one to bootanimation.zip.
