HTC Incredible :: Does Change ROMs Remove Boot Animation?
Sep 12, 2010
When I change ROMs, does this remove the boot animation that I might have changed? I know a wipe is usually involved with a ROM change, but don't know if that will wipe the boot animation. I was going to change one, but will wait until I load a ROM so I don't have to do it twice.
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.
I've got CM6 on my phone right now and I'm trying to change the boot animation using Root Explorer. I've used Root Explorer to change the boot animation on the stock 2.2 Rom. When I try to change the boot animation in CM6 it won't go through. I know the boot animation is located in system/media/boot animation.zip and I choose Mount R/W and it still won't change it. Do I have to use another method to change it?
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.
Just found this out over at the XDA forums, that to change the boot animation and sound, you go to /system/customize/resource/ and it's named VZW_boot animation.zip and for the sound it's named VZW_Droid.zip..
Anyone know how to remove the boot animation "droid" sound. I have deleted the android_audio.mp3 from /system/media as this was the only place I could find it. Rebooted and I still get the "droid". this is with the leaked OTA update.
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.
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 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.
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.
I have to send my X back and well, it has the boot image of an android peeing on an apple. I don't think Verizon will take to kindly to that. So I have to reset the entire phone and get it back to factory defaults. I don't know how to change the boot animation.
I'm just trying to change my boot animation to go along with a theme i have for bugless beast 0.4...i was told to put the bootanimation.zip in the data/local folder which i did..then i used terminal to load it up and it says no such directory or something.
So to be clear i was supposed to create the local folder myself right? data is in the root, then i make the local folder inside the data? it seems i'm doing everything right but when i power on the phone i dont even have an animation..it just goes from the M symbol to the phone on.
Working on changing my boot animation on my X (not rooted) I followed all the steps but get stuck on the reboot. CMD says this operation is not permitted. USB debugging is checked, and the phone is in usb mode.
When i change my activity to fulscreen, the statusbar performs an animation,but not disappear immediately. so how can i make the statusbar disappear immediate ? if need to change framework , where is it? i have read the statusbarservice.java, statusbarview.java, statusbarpolicy.java and statusbarmanager.java ,but still have no idea !
First off, im running HC2.1, 1.Dont you have to root to be able to upgrade to a different software type? I rooted before in stalling greek35 2.1, then upgraded to HC2.1, do i have to reroot? 2. Rooting is just, using the update.zip file you download, then using droidroothelp.apk program, mount3, update those 3 things, flash 15.0, rename, reboot ect...so basically as long as you have SU app on your phone your rooted no?
Now boot animation question I downloaded a boot animation, connected my phone with usb debugging, used the cd command and abd push bootanimation.zip /data/local, rebooted and the boot animation didnt change..after i used the push command, it said x.xkb transfered in 1.23seconds or whatever...any suggestions?
I am looking for this boot animation I seen a while back where the Android Bot is waving and making these weird sounds. Its like this but without the eye. http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/8780/boot.gif
So last night I decided to try and change my boot animation but when I restart my phone I still have the stock verizon one. I have received the 2.2 update and not sure if that matters. And I was wondering what are the requirement to make a boot animation. I'm a huge UFC fan and would love to have a .gift of a fight or something.
