Rebooted this morning and it's a warm spring boot animation, not the chilly winter one. Is this everyone or is it random?

That boot animation push left me with nasty wakelocks. It's not cleared up fully.

I don't think they push anything to our phones to change the boot animation. I believe they all come preinstalled and change out automatically according to preset calendar dates.

Obviously I could be wrong, but I thought the winter themed boot animation was packaged in with the touchless control update?

All I know is that Motorola SLPC Service was going nuts all yesterday evening and all last night. My MX struggled to sleep (and it's a great sleeper) even with reboots. Very strange.

Moodles.apk (com.motorola.moodles) is what holds the images and animations I believe. Not sure how/when this runs or updates. But, you could disable in settings.

I also found that the Moto G has this as an app in Google Play (Motorola Boot Services). Not sure why the X doesn't.

I thought the winter themed boot animation was included with the 4.4 release for the Moto X. Those with 4.2.2 did not get the updated animation.

For the Moto G though they did include it in a play store update.
