Droid X bootanimation (non-laggy edition) [New Colors Added]

I posted this up in the BB v0.4 thread but decided to make a new thread since I know people aren't reading the release threads after it reaches page 3 onward.

Pete, feel free to use this in future versions if you feel so inclined.

I "fixed" the laggy Droid X boot animation and made it snappier. Was simple, the original boot animation was only set to run @ 10 fps, I just changed it to run @ 15 fps.

I tried running it @ 20, 25 and 30 fps, but it's way too fast that way and the Droid eye looks like it's on speed or something.

If you liked my work, please fell free to donate and buy me a coffee or a beer.



Backup, backup, backup before modifying anything on your phone!!!

bootanimation(Stock).zip
bootanimation(Blue).zip
bootanimation(Orange).zip

Rename colored ones to just bootanimation.zip and remember to say thank you.

Works great. Simple and painless using bb toolkit. Thanks a lot dude!

NP, just want people to let me know how it's running on their setups, since I only tested it out on my own BB v0.4 with chevy's 1Ghz LV kernel. I'm hoping that it'll run just as good on the stock kernel as well, since the bootanimation doesn't seam like it's too heavy.

It certainly runs better. I would've recommended deleting every 3rd or 2nd image and run the fps a little lower to compensate. This will also make the animation run faster, but it will also get past the M logo faster, too.

For reference then...
Chevy's ulv 1.25
bb v0.4 w/ nextheme

Thank you again!

Feel free to edit yours to your liking. I only edited the fps to make it look less laggy because even without getting passed the M logo faster, my phone boots up faster than it ever has with BB v0.4, no contest.

I envy you, I can't run any of chevy's ulv kernels. I've tried each and every one and they all either freeze, boot loop or cause random reboots.

runs good with jdlfg's 800mhz kernel, bb0.4, installed using the switchboot command in the toolbox. Thanks ZeroBarrier dancedroid

Just a warning: don't do this if you don't have a fresh backup. I used the switchboot script and got sent into a bootloop, and of course I haven't backed up bb 0.4 yet. Now I'm gonna have to roll back then upgrade again.

UPDATE: Weird. I just tried reinstalling bb 0.4 as an update without wiping data to fix the bootloop without losing everything, and it looks like the faster animation has copied over anyways. Now I just need nextheme back.

Your not alone, me too

I guess I should consider myself lucky. I've had two different droids (one replaced on factory warranty for touchscreen issues) and they both have been able to run every kernel I've ever thrown at them, including the ULV ones. I wonder what causes the variability?

Looks good. I used Pete's script for the install

BB V.04 and Chevy's ulv 1.25
