    Default Anyone reboot today?

    I saw the "Motorola Boot Services" was updated this morning so I rebooted to see what was new. It has the new Google-mandated "Powered by Android" on the splash screen, and also some interesting cameos during the boot animation. Not sure if it's just April 1st thing, though.

    It was out on the 31st of March so not a AFD thing.

    I haven't upgraded to that, yet. It looks boring compared to the original animation. >shrug< It's not like I see it that often and it doesn't appear to add any benefits.

    The new April fools day is considered the 31st now. But I actually like the new boot thing.

    Per his Blog, Punit sez it was an AFD thing and it'll last another 10 days or so...the switch back is probably built into that Boot Services update.

    Well 11 days have come and gone. I guess we are stuck with the current cartoony boot for now. Rats.

    I like them both, actually, but wouldn't it be nifty if the phone had a boot option menu?

    I'm with ya...I'd love to select it. altho it really doesnt matter to phone operation. To have the option what we see when we reboot the phone would be neat.

    It's cool that they can change the boot animation like this.I'm looking forward to see what they come up with next.I haven't rebooted yet to see the "world animation" again yet

    Maybe a silly Q, but, what does updating the boot services app through the play store matter or actually do, when Moto can just update the boot animation from the server side regardless?

    They can't update the boot animation server-side. Your phone has no network connection until it's booted up (unless there's a secret backdoor...). The boot services app update is what actually gets the new animation onto your phone. It seems that the boot services app can't just pull the new animation itself but has to be updated through the play store. That may be a Google Play Services requirement (that all updated "non-transient" data come from the play store); but I haven't read the agreements so I'm not sure.
