Rooted, a couple questions regarding clockworkmod and boot animation.
OK, I am rooted using bubbas simple method. I have yet to flash a custom rom still running 2.2.1 w sense. I have read in multiple rom threads that many people don't like clockwork mod and suggest finding a different way to go about this, but all the tutorials show you how by using rom manager and clockwork mod. What are your thoughts on this.
Also how would one flash the boot animation? Does this differ from rom to rom or is this a static file between all roms? Does anyone have a good spot to find those animations other then just searching xda-developers?
Thanks in advance.

I've been using clockwork mod since I rooted back in February and have had zero issues. Some ROMs require a different version on CWM but you can switch those from within CWM itself so it's no biggie. I know there have been issues with the newer 126.96.36.199 recovery version and some devs recommend not using it to flash their ROMs. Again, not a biggie. Oh, this came out yesterday DO NOT PARTITION YOUR SD CARD IN CWM!!!! It will brick your phone.
The boot animation is something I have never toyed around with except in the MIUI ROM but that's just a simple change in the theme editor. To change the boot animation you have to flash something in the bootloader I believe. I would ask the dev of the specific ROM you're thinking about. They will know more about it as it's their work.
