I'm really bugged by the Cherry Mobile Flare logo. It's like this: when our devices (S100, otherwise known as the Karbonn A9+ in India) are still in Android ICS(4.0.4), it's really a breeze to change the boot(splash) logo using the AIO flasher. Anyways, since we updated our devices to JB 4.1.2, I have tried and failed (countless times) in changing the boot logo using AIO (partition table does not exist). The boot logo also appears during off-charging (before the animated battery).So I searched the web and found the link below(which looks promising) and tried but I get the "can't open dev/block/mmcblock0p18" error. It's NOT the boot animation, it's THE boot logo guys.
That want to change their Incredible's Splash Screen and boot animation. I take no credit for developing any of this, just wrote up a little guide for noobs. All credit goes to App developers of Boot animation changer lite, touchpro247 for his xda thread.

How to includes how to: Add your own splash screen. Add custom boot animations and sounds. Links to some cool apps and animations and splash screens.
Recently I flashed to this ROM [URL] .... from a stock ROM. Have done it a few times before and no problems have occurred. It's an MIUI rom and I decided to customize the theme a little. The themes section allows to change most of the detail ie fonts, status bar, home screen, lock screen, icons, boot animation.
And that's where it started, when I changed the boot animation, instead of using the default one. When I did a reboot after the switch, the usual boot logo was up, but then the screen turned pixelated like a CRT monitor/damaged LCD screen with colourful pixels. But then in boot into the new animation all fine, and has been ok since. The device boots fine, but I'm worried about that pixelated screen.
I was trying to update my s4 clone, but missed click using something called mcm or something and it restore my cellphone to factory data, and know i dont have boot animation logo, i tried to use many programs like boot animation logo changer, rom toolbox but nothing works.
Is there any way to custom the LG logo like you can on the moto droid for the M logo, or any way of customizing the verizon splash screen or just remove it.I know that the newest rom removed the verizon splash, but I was hoping to not have to choose between roms over this and that there would be a way to customize it and not just remove it.So any way to customize these or remove the splash without permanently changing my rom.
So I decided to hijack the "Red Rage" boot animation and use it as the base of my animation. Mine just has some Georgia Bulldog love to it. Also I have modified my boot logo and no longer have the "M" its now a lot nicer. I will include the bootanimation.zip in case anyone wants this. Just place it in the /data/local/ folder. Do not Unzip it, leave it how it is. If you have another one there just rename it with a .bak extension in case you don't like mine. Its stretched a little vertically, not sure why not too noticeable tough. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mAMNbLANnI
I have a rooted eris running "Eris_Official_0.8.1T2" rom. I have seen threads about how to change the boot logo/animation, but no one knows how to remove the animation entirely. I would like the verbose boot to display on start up if possible. Has anyone done this? I have seen something similar with the android on iphone(at 1:53 in the video)
I wanted to change the boot logo for i9300. Im well aware that you have to incorporate it in the kernel. I installed Ubuntu, the necessary libraries and brought the cyanogenmod source code. Only part is I dont have the necessary experience to tweak it using the NDK tools
i just got a new phone (my first android), ive been trying to change my boot animation and cant seem to get it to work,i replaced the file which was named bootanimation_virigin.zip (also didnt think of renaming the original, so the original is gone), i even replaced the stock one which was named bootanimation.zip (also didnt rename it or back it up... -__-;; ) i made sure the files are correct and match up with the desc.txt file. i copied the original boot animation zip to my computer and just replaced everything, same number of files, about the same file size, same file type, same size and just put the folders "part0", "part1" and the desc.txt files back on my sd card and moved it to system/media/bootanimation_virigin, i compressed the files into a zip using root browser from the rom toolbox, i made sure that the compression was set to none, and then moved the zip file to system/media, i set the permisions to rw-r--r-- which is the exact same as the other boot animations. nothing shows up anymore till the phone is done booting but ill admit that it is definitely better than the stock virgin mobile animation...
here is everything i have for this boot animation (including: original virgin mobile boot animation, a video of the boot animation, all the pictures, and a folder titled "bootanimation_virign" which is the folder i moved into system/media)
i thought it was something on my phone but it was the way after effects renders jpeg sequences, i think it has something to do with the attributes of the jpeg file but anyways i just used a program called boot animation creator and it worked perfectly
i have an xperia tablet s i need to change boot animation but without root. i searched a lot and most of people said that this is not possible, only few said that this can be done but hasn't said how to do that? i tried to adb push but it said read only file system.the xperia tablet has an ics and is purchased from other country and it isn't supported yet in my country so i can't root.
So, I recently updated to 4.3 on my S3 and when everything was installed, the device just rebooted and stayed on to the Samsung symbol frozen. I've tried battery pull, I've tried clearing cache. Bear in mind I DON'T want my data to be deleted, it's not backed up, however is there a way to do backup with the phone switched off or on to download mode.
I'm using an mk808 with xbmc and two seperate usb drives which should be mounted at fixed,specific locations every time I unplug an replug them.
How to achieve this in jellybean? I've already tried changing stuf in /etc/vold.fstab,but this seems to have no effect (I changed /mnt/usb_storage/USB_DISK0 to /mnt/fusb_storage/USB_DISK0 to see if it affects anything,but nothing changed)
I came across this on XDA and thought I would post here. Added some stuff so that it was easier than what was said on XDA. As always, do a NAND backup before doing this. I am not responsible if this bricks your phone. I just did it and it worked fine
Things needed:ADB/Fastboot knowledge - HERE also try searching. RGB565Converter v0.3c - Thanks to DeToX-cz! Instructions:Find an or create an image (.png, .bmp, .jpg, or .gif -- 320x480 is preferrable) Open RGB565 Converter Ensure that "To RGB565 (binary)" tab is selected Click "Open Image", select your image Click "Convert to RGB565" (RGB565 Converter will make your image 320x480 if it is not already) CLOSE RGB565 CONVERTER Reboot phone into Fastboot using this command: adb reboot bootloader OR Button combo: SEND/CALL + END/POWER Flash image using this command: fastboot flash splash1 <your_image_name>.rgb565 Reboot phone using this command: fastboot reboot OR fastboot oem powerdown if not then remove your battery View the benefits of your hard work.
I didnt create this. Thanks to sickbox over at XDA for figuring this out and sharing the knowledge with all of us.

I used the jpg that he put since I couldnt find any that looked as nice as his did after converting
I am trying to put a custom boot animation on my moto droid 1. I have root I have done it before and I am using froyo. My big problem now is that I tried putting a different one I downloaded on and it worked. So I need someone to tell me whats wrong with the one I made, because I am out of ideas. I have compared size, resolution, ppi, bit depth but for some reason my images are way bigger files. The sequence was created by using virtualdub to clip a section of an animated short, then exporting an image sequence as png.
But I've fed the images through gimp and an image resizer. The frames are only some of them because I went through deleting every other frame a few times to cut down on the total size. The file is too big to attach here so i put it on my web space at: http://www.freaksed.com/stuff/bootanimation.zip I am using the patch that lets me put the files in datalocal and be named bootanimation.zip. it works I've tried with other animations like I said.
Instead of seeing the boring old Android logo or my service provider's logo, I'd love to see the standard text-based Linux boot screen that shows the status of all the hardware and configuration info as my phone boots. My current phone is an HTC EVO 3D running Cool ICS with Sense 3.6 and Revolutionary CWM.
I want to change the boot animation, since I now I have access to the /system/customize/resource folder can I just delete that boot animation file and move the new one over from the sd card? I was going to use Astro to do this.
You need adb and root. choose and download the bootanimation from here Boot Animations NEW! - Android @ MoDaCo. then place the bootanimation.zip into c:/where.ever.you.have.it/androidsdk/tools/ change or remove where.ever.you.have.it to the match your system. then hit windows key and r together. type cmd and hit enter. then type cd c:/where.ever.you.have.it/androidsdk/tools/adb devices (wait for it to find your phone, also make sure that usb debugging is on) now type adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local. when its finished reboot and enjoy.
My mom has a LG Optimus L9 p769. I'm trying to boot the phone into recovery mode by holding down the + volume button, the home button, and the power button. The phone will not boot into recovery mode. The phone works perfectly fine, I just can't get into recovery mode.
I was able to change the boot animation before Froyu using the procedure at http://androidforums.com/tips-tricks-evo-4g/109120-how-install-new-boot-animation-without-root.html.After Froyo, I've tried to push the zip file as VZW_bootanimation.zip and bootanimation.zip to both /data/local and /system/customize/resource (I can't write to that location, I think it's for rooted phones only). None of these four options worked.What am I missing? That native boot animation is nasty.
