NOTE: this is a crosspost from a thread I just made over in Android/Themes, but a question was brought up and I realized that maybe there are more considerations to be taken in terms of specs, specific devices, etc if posting in a forum that's not specific to one device. I'm still a n00b on xda, so please let me know if crossposting is not allowed, and if you know anything about the issues already brought up by a CM user over on that thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...imkat-t2819693

Anyway, figured since I made this for my N5, i'll come back and create a thread for it for fellow N5 SlimKat users. Enjoy.

Hello XDA,
After my first attempt at a custom bootanimation was fairly well received (Custom CarbonROM Thundercats style), I decided to try a variation on the existing SlimKat bootanimation since I've swtiched over to Slim and haven't looked back.

BTW I still intend to do a Thundercats variation for SlimKat, since it only seems so fitting (cats and all). But for now, I cooked up something that just jazzes up the official one a bit. I've made them in the original Slim blue hue, as well as a pink one because my phone is themed to be black, neutrals and neon pink, so it's my preferred version for myself.

Previews (the GIF compressions take away from some of the finer details, don't let it dissuade you from giving it a shot)

**V3: made it look more seamless between the google splash screen to bootanimation. also tried to clean up some weird artifacting and got the filesize way down

The images look nice and clean. Everything seems well thought-out. The transparent, multi-textured band running over the text on the loop section is interesting....

What the heck is that thing?!

One issue that I see (maybe) is the desc.txt file; I'd normally expect permissions of 644 (rw,r,r). As extracted, I'm seeing 755 (rwx,rx,rx). It probably doesn't make any difference though.

The only other issue is putting "KAT" in the logo. "L" (Licorice? Lima-bean? Lollipop?) is right around the corner. Calling it "SlimROM" might be better long term. Maybe not

Keep up the awesome work. I'm looking forward to seeing more stuff from you.
