This subforum doesn't really look like the right place for this question, but I'm trying to follow forum rules.

I'm rooted.

Using esfile explorer, I downloaded the awesome bootanimation.zip file located here.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2334927

I renamed the old boot animation zip file (as not that) and pasted the new one into system/media as instructed by video.

I check the permissions of both files and they are the same.

Can't get the new animation to run. Just blank. I reversed the process and the old one ran fine again.

I have two questions.
1. Why would this not work for me?
2. With one big .zip file, how do I know which animation I'm getting? How do I control which boot animation runs?

You should try flashing the boot image with fastboot.

fastboot flash boot boot.img

No no....the bootanimation is not the boot.img, absolutely do not try flashing a bootanimation.zip as a boot.img

Woops my mistake! I just recently flashed a boot image to get rid of that nasty bootloader unlock screen. Got confused between the two. My apologies
