Man this is awesome! It really fits my phone since I was already using the blue Droid X LWP! That and the plastic case I have for my phone is blue. Hey what can I say I live in KY and love my Cats ;)

Since I am new to the whole rooted phone thing I have a question. If I ever wanted to go back to my old boot animation the best thing to do would be to just rename it to something different, and leave it in the folder correct? Now if this looks as good as I think it will on my phone I will never go back to the old one. Just CYA I guess.

Yep, you could do that, or just copy it to your SD card. That's what I do, I have a folder for all the crap that I put back into a ROM once I update (which happens a LOT lol)

What you might want to consider, from a space standpoint, is creating a folder on your PC, labeled, say, "Boot Animations", and storing the various cool animations there. You can label them anything you like ("Exploding Droid, in red", for example) as long as you change them to bootanimation.zip when you're actually going to use one of them. Saves space on the phone by using the much bigger PC hard drive for storage.

I actually have both :D

It pays to have redundant backups! Next step is to upload everything to a cloud lol so I can access then from anywhere.

Yeah, I'm a packrat too. Got folders and files EVERYWHERE on my PC. What was that old expression - "A clean desk(top) is the sign of a sick mind"? They were talking about ME! :icon_ lala:

Nice. Dunno if I want to spend $10 a month though, as I most likely use more than 2gb :D

iirc he's working on a red one atm. just a note, not bashing (he did what i did to make my version). Somebody else made the original droid does animation, which was red. then somebody (me) took that animation and put a blue droidX eye at the end of it. then somebody turned the droiddoes part blue, then CoolSaber57 combined the blue droid does with the blue droid x eye.

what he's doing now is taking the original red droidX and putting a red droidX eye at the end of it. nobody has done purple yet, and i don't know if he's going to want to go into each image and change the hue (especially after individually resizing the canvas for the droidX eye, i wanted to chop my fingers off after doing so when i made the DD/Blue Eye).

This could be a stupid question, but will this technique work with the newly released Droid X? Or would you not recommend that, for screwing up the boot screen and messing the phone up? Any suggestions?

not sure, would be something that i would suggest throwing up in the support forum, unless you're feeling risky. best bet, since it has been rooted, root your X, use Root Manager to pull the bootanimation.zip out of the system/media folder and compare the files, if the text file matches up, then you should be good. but that's just a guess. i'd ask in there to be sure, don't take my word for it.

Almost correct, I was the one to turn the droid does animation blue. :D

I'll look into it after I do the red one. I just didn't have any time to work on it this weekend...i was doing yard work in 100+ degree weather all weekend long.
