No idea about the app you name as I've never used ROM tool box lite. But there are a lot of other Google Play apps that will change your boot animation. Or it's easy to do with a root file browser.

These are the boot animation and shutdown animation files. You can find new ones on XDA or with a Google search. Confirm that the new files have 0644 permissions after you move them to your S5 directory.

/system/media/bootsamsung.qmg
/system/media/bootsamsungloop.qmg
/system/media/audio/ui/poweron.ogg

/system/media/shutdown.qmg
/system/media/audio/ui/shutdown.ogg

So it is nothing to do with system media boot .zip? Cause there is a thread that i was kinda in the dark about the way it was explained

If you mean bootanimation.zip, that format is not used on the S5 unless you've modified the relevant system files to recognize it.

You can read the descriptions of the Play store apps and see if any of them say that they will work with Samsung qmg animations. The bootanimation apps that I have seen only support the bootanimation.zip format which is used on other phone models.

Some of the boot animations can modify your phone's kernel to use bootanimation.zip rather than Samsung qmg files, but a custom kernel will trip your Knox flag if that matters to you. That's mainly a concern in the US where Samsung will invalidate warranties because you modified your kernel. A lot of carriers don't care about Knox and ostensibly Samsung can't deny a warranty in the EU. But if your phone is in warranty, you should look into that issue first.

There are many apps. This one looks like it should work, including changing your kernel for you. I have not used the app personally, I just read the app description.

If your running MOAR grab root explorer and navigate to system/media and replace the bootanimation.zip

Whatever you replace it with rename it to bootanimation.zip, set permissions and reboot

The above post suggests that you are using a custom ROM. You didn't make that point clear, I've never heard of "moar" and you didn't mention that it was a custom ROM. A stock S5 does not use bootanimation.zip, but according to the post above, your ROM has already been modified to use bootanimation.zip files. So you can try that.

It also means that you aren't posting in the ideal forum. You'd be better served posting in your custom ROM support thread or even the Verizon S5 forum.
