Samsung Fascinate :: Boot Animation Links And Requests
Oct 19, 2010
I am posting this thread to see what people would like to have as boot animations. I probably won't have time to make all of them, but I plan on trying to make a few of the top requests.
Also, if you have boot animations you have made, or links to someone else's boot animations that you like and think others would like here, please post those links! No sense in going through all that trouble for one that's already made!
When posting links to boot animations, PLEASE specify whether it is an animation that doesn't work with the Fascinate and you'd like us to try and make it work, OR if it has been CONFIRMED to work specifically with the Fascinate, just so people know.
I will be posting links to some more of my favorites soon, but for now, this is my current favorite. I did not make it, and when I find out who did, they are going to get a big, fat thank you from me! It's awesome, and battery friendly to boot. (no pun intended)
Fascinate Boot Animation Links (confirmed to work):
Windows 7 Boot Animation
Spinning Droid (thanks to Saps for link and Natems from MyDroidWorld for creating it)
Fascinate Shutdown Animation Links(confirmed to work):
Reverse Android Scribble Shutdown (thanks to Saps for reversing, testing it, and the link)
Links to more links:
Bootanimation.zip links on XDA (thanks jamesnmandy)
Please post the quickest link possible to the actual "bootanimation.zip" file, or whatever they've named it, and if possible, please credit the producer for his/her work. Keep in mind that some links might point to download files that require membership/registration in order to allow you to download it.

I've tried using ADB to push bootanimation.zip to my phone. The file copies properly without error but doesn't take affect when I reboot. I also downloaded the free version of Boot Animation from the market. It too reports success but doesn't actually change the boot animation. Has anyone had any success changing their boot animation?
I saw a sweet boot sequence posted on. I believe XDA or Android Central, but for the motorola droid X. I got the file, tried to locate a boot animtion file to replace the new boot animation with, and it isn't there. They have a samsung boot and samsung boot repeat. I renamed both of them to bkp files and placed the new boot animation.zip in there(what they did with the motorola). I couldn't get it to work. Anyone know how to get rid of the Galaxy S and replace with other boot animations?
My android is rooted. It tethers, plays live wallpapers, it does all the other fancy tricks it's supposed to, I can even switch up the boot animations without having to flash the internal memory each time (use the boot animation changer app from the market-- you can go into the downloaded folders and switch what screens are actually shown-- cut-n-paste), but how do you CREATE boot animations?? I understand the whole "slide show of *.png" files, I'm lost at the disc.txt file. Does anyone know what each set of numbers represents? I've fiddled around with this and every time I've put something together, it just don't work. I've got the droid screen followed by the Decepticon symbol spinning around, I've got the one that forms the Decepticon out of pieces, then goes to the matrix rain. I want the symbol to form, then have the spinning symbol. So far, when I piece it together the screen stays black. Any recommendations? I'll post the zip file when it's done, has tons of potential!
I've seen the Motorola Droid users doing this, but I'd like my own custom animation for the boot up screen on the Galaxy. Anyone know how you go about that? I tried copying a bootanimation.zip file in there as per the Droid instructions but looks like the Galaxy doesn't use it. Where are the boot up screen/animations stored on the Galaxy?
I am trying to create a custom boot animation and I have been following this tutorial ([Ref Tutorial] Changing the boot animation screen on google builds - xda-developers) but I can seem to be able to find the system folder. I am using take5 ROM but when I unzip it its md5 file, not a bunch of folder like the tutorial says.
I bought this phone whilst on a business trip In Shenzhen china.
It's was running 4.2.9 jb. 2gb ram 16gb rom 5" screen 1080p
I put 3d chain fire on it and now it's stuck in the boot animation.
I borrowed my friend phone, same as mine and loaded up mtk droid and it generated a backup of his phone with loads of files system folder, boot.img etc
It then packed it up into a zip file. From there I thought I could put the zip file on an sd card and boot into recovery and delete the data / cache and them select install from sd card.But the installation failed
I rooted my samsung for the first time Friday (worked out great). I just installed Rom Toolbox Pro & was looking through the features (I should of backed up first thing!) & decided to install a custom boot animation (big mistake!). The boot animation worked fine but even though the phone boots up & actually works, the screen is stuck in the boot animation state & will not bring up the home screen.
I've tried everything (actually learned quite a bit) using CWM to install boot animation disable zips, clear all kinds of caches, & even clear data & factory reset (lost everything). Even used odin3 to install Jelly Bean (originally ice cream sandwich 4.0.4.) & still this f$%^ing boot animation will not clear off the screen.
The phone still works to where I can answer & if I flip it on the side I can use the voice app with the home key to see half the screen (scrolling is a pain) but if I click to the home screen the dam boot animation takes over the whole screen again.
The firmware updates & zip files don't work. Is there a full android system out there to restore it or some way easy to get my home screen back. I really don't want to turn it to a brick if possible.
Read this on egadget so I quickly copped em and installed em on my epic. The live wallpapers are pretty cool, especially the Jump To Light Speed.
Here is the original link from the engadget article: Droid 2 R2-D2 boot animation, live wallpapers leak out at light speed -- Engadget
And here is where you can download the live wallpapers and see them in action: Motorola Droid 2 R2-D2 Special Edition Live Wallpapers Leaked, Available For Download | Android News, Reviews, Applications, Games, Phones, Devices, Tips, Mods, Videos, Podcasts - Android Police
And here is where you can download hte boot animation, if you are so interested. I don't know if we can change it yet though.
I have a fascinat and I am trying to use a one step root and my bootloader wont open. The directions say to push volume up and power, but this doesnt work. So does anyone have any idea, or have you had this problem? Please help me out.
So I think I have returned everythingto Stock on my phone after using Odin. The symptoms on the phone seem to be that everything works fine when I first reset it ... and then after a re-boot I just get the Fin "Download Unsuccessful" from the app store over and over. I suppose I can bring my newly purchased phone back to Verizon and swap it...
I have a Samsung Fascinate and recently I just started up the phone and i see the Samsung logo and hear the sound, but the screen won't switch from the samsung logo. I tried doing a factory reset but nothing will work. I don't know what to do because I really don't want to take it back to Verizon.
i tried to do the one click clock work mod on my samsung fascinate with the phoenix kernel on the root of the sd card. everything went succesful but whe it turned back on, it kept looping, first the samsung logo appeared than a samsung.com logo followed and just looped. i cant go to any menu... cant get into hard reset or anything else!!
So I was at work today browsing the market and suddenly my screen went black. I tried pressing the power button to wake it but got nothing. After a few minutes of waiting, I pulled the battery. The phone will boot past the "Samsung", "Galaxy S" and "Verizon" screens, but gets stuck on the Verizon one for a while then goes dark. The soft buttons on the bottom stay lit. That's it. I've probably done it 10-15 times through the evening now, and I get no farther.
I wasn't doing anything particularly taxing at the time, and I haven't added anything recently that would have caused a change in any system files. I'm running voodoo v.2 with the OCLF (because it won't uninstall) and all has been well for almost six weeks now... then all of a sudden this happens.
I'm thinking maybe I need to learn exactly what Odin is and how to use it, but any help that you can give would be great.
Hey guys my Fascinate is stuck on the happy robot green screen after installed Lag Fix (Paid Version) I'm pretty fucking stoked about this one! How do I restore to a previous ROM or get the phone to a happier place?
I was rooted and and had lagfix on my fascinate. Then I decided to download the new update from verizon today. After the update the update screen kept on popping up even after I already installed it. Then I found out that my apps that require root like autokiller and setcpu did not work anymore even though I still hade the superuser app. So I rooted my phone again restarted it and the apps worked again then I decided I wanted to do the clockworkmod installation thing so I could make my phone flashable, the instructions recommended that i remove lag fix so I took my phone plugged it into the pc and went to my ryan lagfix folder whatever on my desktop and clicked on the unlagfixme.bat thing and at the end it had some errors or something even mentioning the Innopath Activecare in it which was for some reason probably why it didnt work. So I decided to try it again and it didnt work. Then I rebooted the phone and I saw the samsung logo and then black screen!
I have been unsuccessful in getting this to work. xda-developers - View Single Post - Droid X R2-D2 editon boot animaion if anyone want it xda-developers - View Single Post - R2D2 from StarWars Has anyone been able to get it to work or can help me with it? I got the LWP and notifications to work but not the boot animation.
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
Just thought I'd show you what I got running on my EVO. I take absolutely no credit for this, just saw a thread somewhere in the incredible forum about a boot animation and did it. Takes no ROOT, just install the SDK and a small amount of knowledge on how to use the ADB tool. Here is a video of it on my EVO.
I recently tried to get a custom boot animation on my Droid X and copied the boot animation.zip into system/media and now instead of a boot animation i have a black screen. How can i get the stock animation back on there? should i put my custom boot animations in data/local instead?
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.
