Have any of you played around with with the boot animation for the Optimus V (VM670)? Please share your custom bootanimation.zip here, maybe with a YouTube video or a GIF preview, along with how you got them to work.

I found this really cool one by eyesonlybob from reddit, just worked without tweaking by replacing the CM7 boot animation at /system/media/bootanimation.zip (thanks to the moderator, deodrus, at /r/android for optimizing it).



This is a GIF animation of the boot animation:

Aww man... I FINALLY got this to work (couldn't figure out the ADB commands for the life of me for like, twenty minutes! XD) and I rebooted, expecting to see this awesome slick animation, but it's really choppy. :T

I suppose that I just have to live with it, then? XD

is there a step by step on how to install this. thanks. new to android

In the reddit thread that r00t linked, there is a user who made instructions. I'm also new to Android, and the instructions worked fine for me. Here's a link to that post directly:

Alternatively, mmmark111's "ROMTools" program should also work. I haven't used it myself because I found the harder instructions (that I linked above) before I found his tool, which seems to be an extremely simple solution. In his tool, I suppose you would choose the "Push bootanimation.zip" method. Here's a link to that thread:

Yep. You just place the bootanimation.zip in the 'bootanimation' folder and press go :)

Question

i try to replace the /system/media/bootanimation.zip with these commands

adb shell rm /system/media/bootanimation.zip
chmod 755 /system/media/bootanimation.zip
then to push the new one
adb push bootanimation.zip /system/media/
but i get errors there its a read only file thought the chmod should change that
also in as root user

what am i doing wrong

adb shell
su
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system/
exit
exit

Then push the bootanimation.zip:

adb push bootanimation.zip /system/media/

Then make it read only again:

adb shell
su
mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
exit
exit

r00t's suggestion works just fine...
adb shell
su
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system/
exit
exit
you can also substitute
adb remount system
to mount your filesystem read/write with less typing.

Ok got dropbox to work but now I can't get the boot animation to change. I did it via adb and root explore, both ways I couldn't find the bootanimation.zip in /data/local/ or /system/media/. I used root explore and searched for bootanimation.zip and could only find the ones I have stored on my SDcard....
