    you can make your own boot animations. for example, i wanted my boot animation to be my kid playing.
    I use a video converter to convert my video file to .png. I unzipped the any boot animation file to a folder.
    I deleted all the .png files in the part0 folder.
    I did not modify the desc.txt file.
    Then I copied the now converted .png files that were my video into part0 folder.
    Finally, highlight both the part0 folder and desc.txt file and using winrar, select add to archive.
    Select zip as the archive format, and the compression method needs to be store.
    It will now create your bootanimation.zip file.
    Copy bootanimation.zip into the
    c:\android\tools folder (depending on what you name your android SDK folder) Now open command prompt,
    cd android\tools and press enter
    adb push bootanimation.zip /system/media
    if that does not work try
    adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local
    adb reboot.
    you should now have your own personal custom boot animation.

    The video had nothing to do with me getting moderator. But it had a lot to do with me being an adviser before I was a moderator.

    If you get "access denied" when you try it then yes you will need to type "su" first.

    All this talking and your gonna ask if you need SU to push to system? lol ok. Answer = yes .... if mounting doesn't give you SU then you'll need to issue the SU command.

    If you are rooted, no need for su to be typed first

    So what's next sclar? Maybe start posting up some boot animations for everyone to play with? that would be a cool addition to this busy community we have here.

    EDIT - if you did start putting up some animations create a new thread. This can be used to teach people how to make their own while the other can give them already made animations. Also, if you need any help making the animations into flashable zips just holler at me.

    My boot animations are homevideo of my kids. I'm not posting stuff like that. I will go ahead and create some and start a new thread with step-by-step instructions as best i can.

    Sclarktay4, how many images did you include in your boot animation? You've got me thinking of doing the same thing now.

    ha ha i wasnt suggesting you post images of your kids ... even if you did, if someone downloaded that, that would be a little creepy

    What i was saying though is there are tons of boot animations around the web. If you were to ask the various authors of those animations if you could resize it and package it for our phone (like nick's themes), thats what i was getting at.

    I have 39 .png files in my part0 folder. Make sure you watch your file size and do not overload your phone. The biggest size i got to was 12MB

    LOL. gotcha. I am working on a Lebron James dunk boot animation. Well more like a boot movie. Here is an example of some boot animation for nexus 1. when you unzip the file. you get part0, part1 that are folders. part0 folder has the initial boot animation. part1 folder holds the images that play in a loop, like a pulsating ANDROID. the text file is the instructions
    when you open the text file, the numbers at the top 320 160 20
    320- height
    120-width (or these might be backwards)
    20 - frames
    you can change the size and save it to fit your phone's display size.

    I'm wondering, is there any way to add sound to this? My fiance has a thing for 2 1/2 Men and wanted to add part of the theme for her.

    This is for the LG Optimus
    i went back to factory settings

    using root explorer
    go to /system/sounds/poweron

    here is the location for the boot audio
    you can change it to whatever you want
    delete the PowerOn.mp3 file
    rename the mp3 file you want to use as PowerOn.mp3
    paste it into the /system/sounds/poweron
    that is it.
    Warning.... edit the mp3 file to be short or it will just play until the song is over

    Wow. Having sound to go with the boot animation is icing on the cake! Thanks for the info, sclarktay4! I need to start playing with custom animations now.

    How big is the bootanimation.zip file? When you archived the 2 files, did you select store instead of normal?

    Have not got it to play on ThundeRom 1.6.2. I did get it working on stock rom. It played a whole song instead of that sprint junk.

    So you can't get it running on TR??? Would 1.7 make much difference?

    Not yet at least. I don't know if tr looks for an audio file at boot like stock rom does.

    that PowerOn folder is not in ThundeRom either. I guess it had to be removed to get rid of the sprint boot junk. still working on it

    I seem to remember one of the first things done with TR was removing that startup sound (it was really annoying), so that's probably the reason why it's not there at all..

    I need to be more specific. I could not get the mp3 file to play at boot. I did achieve playing sound at boot when I went back to stock. The boot animation process that was describe earlier has worked in Lego Rom, ThundeRom, NRom, and stock Rom.
