Variations of BIOS animationI recommend trying the main BIOS animation first (see above)

Many variations have been removed. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Branded BIOS Boot animations are very similar to the main one.
Therefore, the preview may only show the biggest difference - the loop.

Hi there, I've downloaded the bootanimation.zip and transferred it to /system/media and set its permission to rw-rw-r-- (via root explorer) but it doesn't seem to work after restart.

edit: It's working now. I've copied the zip to /data/local instead and it works!

Great looking Boot animation! The only criticism is that you spelled Success wrong, but that is the only problem I have with it!
