Apart from the spelling there is at least one more bug, with and without spaces I was getting unexpected behavior.

I tried "\sdcard\BootBox\Animations\Tibuk1080x1920.zip " (I'm amazed this is considered explicit), it has the same "Only .zip files allowed" issue but the animation is displayed on booting.

Probably but not sure how to do so. I tried something just as good though, I used the "Currently installed animation" and it was shown in the preview so its probably its installed OK, just not displaying. I have attached the zip file.

Hi,

I've got a bigger issue now... I used BootBox to create series of slides which previewed OK. This hangs my phone with the 2nd last picture displaying, I feel a vibrate shortly after.

I can get into ADB at this stage but don't know linux commands or Android internals, from Googling I thought this is what I could do:


Quote:

* ADB SHELL
* su
* mount -o remount rw /system
* cd /system/media
* ls -l
* cp /sdcard/goodbootanimation.zip ./bootanimation.zip
* ls -l
I'm not sure "SU" is doing anything, the shell generally just repeats what I type and the googled solution of copy/pasting instead sometimes works. I'm not sure I need it anyway this is my command prompt "255|shell@hammerhead:/ $". (does that mean I have root access already?)

The mount fails with "mount: Operation not permitted". The copy fails with "cp: ./bootanimation.zip: Read-only file system"

I've now worked out how to install the drivers for ADB for recovery, while the driver loads ADB on windows can't see the device:

Quote:
ADB.EXE shell
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
error: closed
I've also Tried Recover->Apply update from ADB", got "device not found".

I'm rooted with unlocked bootloader and stock everything else. I do not wish to factory reset and lose all my configuration..

Help....

Install the animation on /data/local/ instead of /system/media/
If there's an animation in /data/local/, Android will automatically boot that one and ignore any other animation in /system/media/.

The slideshow should be working fine. How many images did you use?

Do the following http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...3&postcount=11

Please let me know if it works out for you

I don't seem to have access to that directory once the phone has hung on the animation:

Quote:
c:\ > ADB.EXE shell
Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.31

* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
shell@hammerhead:/ $ cd /data/local
cd /data/local
shell@hammerhead:/data/local $ ls -l
ls -l
opendir failed, Permission denied
255|shell@hammerhead:/data/local $ cp /sdcard/goodbootanimation.zip ./bootanimation.zip
cp: ./bootanimation.zip: Permission denied

It is not possible for me to follow those instructions due to the issues I described in my previous post

At this stage it doesn't appear to be a driver issue (which I resolved yesterday)

I'm documenting what I'm doing in EverNote so this is it so far:
Quote:
* Boot into Recovery on phone
* You will see an Android with a red triangle and "no command" this is normal
* Volume Down to select "apply update from ADB" and press power button
* You should probably hear/see Windows loading the device
* On windows try "adb get-state" it should respond with "sideload"). The usual ADB commands do not work!
* adb sideload kitkat_Bootanimation.zip (http://d-h.st/4kc)
* sending: 'kitkat_Bootanimation.zip' 100%
* Fails with messages on phone (MD5 matches and also fails with known good "Tibuke1080x1920.zip"):
* Verifying update package
* E:footer is wrong"
* E:signature verification failed
* installation aborted
* Solution to the above:
* ??????????????


---------- Post added at 02:23 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:04 PM ----------

It seems the "kitkat_Bootanimation.zip" gets verified against what is expected so perhaps this one is not from Android 4.4.2?

Anyone know where to get these?

@dbareis flash the stock boot animation, the flash should replace the older animation and all issues should be gone. Here it is: http://d-h.st/users/BrianAllred/?fld_id=29585#files (provided by @BrianAllred)

Thanks but I've already tried that one and it has the same issue (I just confirmed its MD5 to be 100% sure).

Did you install the Apple Static animation before experiencing this issue?

To fix similar issues I've installed Phillz Touch recovery (or any recovery with a file manager) and then I've used that file manager to delete the bootanimation.zip via recovery.

No, it may have been somewhat self inflicted through. The app doesn't allow you to modify a generated boot animation (from multiple static images), from what I could see, I thought I should be able to rename and swap 2 of the images, I did that. The preview worked perfectly (it should be using the same logic as the boot process so as to fail if it was going to at boot...).

I used a toolkit to boot into TWRP recovery and that then allowed me to flash the kitkat boot animation. I learnt a lot fixing this

Bye,
