This sounds kind of like "live logcat", is it similar?

You need to rename /system/bin/bootanimation to something else

No it's different.
Livelogcat is a bootanimation which draws logcat messages in a complex manner.
My patch disables the animation and let the kernel print messages like it does on PC and servers:

Here, flashable zip in recovery

Using any kernel format installer (koush) does not touch the existing ramdisk (no problem on CM etc)

and Kernel.Messages.bootanimation_Restore.zip reverting /system/bin/bootanimation
(Edit : If you deleted that file already, flash Installing_system.bin.bootanimation.zip to restore)

I used image flasher GUI on my ns4g but apparently it is not supported for gnex. What are some other methods of flashing an image.
