ok, I'm a n00b. I've just recently rooted my D1 and want to change the boot animation. I have the zip file and have placed it into the /system/media folder along with my .ogg file for the sound. The only thing that is happening is the "droid eye" logo is gone and I now have the android word logo which is totally not whats in the zip file. Am I correct in the placement of this file? Is there something else that I need to do?
Thanks in advance for any light you can shed for me

Check ur file permissions on the animation u installed

Make sure its atleast rw-r--r--(644)

Also did u modify The zip file at all or u just download?

Yea just check permissions and all the android word boot animation is just built in and shows only when no other boot animations are present /system/media should work fine for you /data/local is another location however not sure if you can play sounds from there but i haven't ever had a boot animation with sound.

I didnt modify the zip, I got it from this thread http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...who-boot-logos-boot-animations-wallpaper.html I tried both with sound and without but neither seems to help. I have permissions as far as I know

Edit:
I went to view permissions and it says the system was read only. I am running shadowrom and unchecked the read only box but when i reboot it defaults back to read only. Is there a way I can change that

The system being read only doesn't matter that's not what u want u want the permissions of the bootanimation.zip i can use root explorer to check this simply browse to where u placed the zip then long press the zip and select permissions it will display a bunch of check boxes for user, group other and then read write and execute that's where u will set ur permissions

Fyi shadow rom uses a custom install location

Edit: I mean custom file name

Rename to realbootanimation.zip and install
To /system/media/ and try :)
