Hi, all. I'm a noob and am having a blast making boot animations thanks to all the great info on this thread! When I try to add sound, using modaco's tutorial here
I get an error when entering the text into terminal emulator. It says
No such user 'root:shell'
after I enter sh bootsound.sh
Anyone else have this problem? Know what I'm doing wrong? thanks in advance.
i have been trying to get the "haters gonna hate" boot animation working on my nexus but i can't seem to get the size right. I have it in 480*800 but when i resize the images to 720*1280 and change the resolution in the desc.txt, i get a black screen instead of the bootanimation.
can anybody help?
here is the link to the boot animation
Here, give this a shot. It worked on my phone.
All I did was crop the images so they would be the right size ratio (I made them 480X720). In order to do this I lost some of the space on the top and the bottom. You could probably resize them like you mention and keep the space on top and bottom but the animation will look a little squished.
If I were to guess what the problem was from what you did this is what I would guess:
1. You used the windows built in file zipper
2. You opened or did anything with the desc.txt file with notepad
Both of these programs will mess up the files. two great free utilities for these applications are 7zip and notepad++
