    Default Has Motorola quietly removed the April Fools' Boot Animation?[SOLVED]

    I just restarted my phone and found that the New Black boot animation with the Loch Ness monster was gone! It showed 'Powered by Android' and then the last animation with the rotating Earth.
    Anybody else notice this?
    Also, the Motorola Boot Services app has disappeared from the list of installed apps on Play.
    What's happening?.

    EDIT : Seems that Motorola had a timeout for the April Fools' Animation. The system app isn't visible in the installed list but would appear when an update arrives.

    It's not a "problem." Those things are set to time out. Was the same with the winter theme.

    So why can't I see the app in the Installed Apps on Play Store?

    I can see it in "all" as installed. Also I think it updated a couple of days ago and its the planet thing again.

    The Official Motorola Blog: The Download: Behind the Scenes of Our April Fools’ Animation

    Not so quietly - the nessie/alien/yeti animation was always set to expire on 12/4/14. There's not been an update - I'm still on version 2.0.3 updated on 31/3/14.
