Default Boot animation Stock +Rooted

Installation attempts 3: 2 Fail 1 Pass
Problems with re-sizing boot animation to full Note 2 resolution using Boot Animation Manager.
  • Used Boot Animations Manager, same developer from RomToolbox to Re-size the boot animation which results in Black Screen of Death.

Device:
SGH-T889 came with 4.3 & KNOX

Flashed: JellyBean Release 4.3 (December 2013)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1975560

Flashed TWRP from here:
http://teamw.in/project/twrp2/123

(TWRP ZIP INSTALL) SuperSU 2.01
http://download.chainfire.eu/451/Sup...etrieve_file=1


The following instructions FAILED:
1)http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6#post35825846
  • Custom Boot Animation (TWRP ZIP INSTALL)
  • Bootanimation4U.Samsungani.Only.zip
  • This did not load boot animations from any directory I've found.
2)http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2037324
  • Custom Boot Animation Enabler (MANUAL)
  • This did not load boot animations from any directory I've found.
Quote:
1. Place the bootanimation.zip file of your choice in /system /media
2. Still in /system /media , backup and then delete bootsamsungloop.qmg and bootsamsung.qmg files
EDIT: Deleting these qmg files is OPTIONAL ( I always delete stuff I am not using, to create more space in /system , but that's up to the user )
3. Then go to /system /bin , backup and then delete samsungani (This one you have to delete no optional, not optional cause....see step 4 )
4. Still in system /bin rename the file bootanimation to samsungani ( yes there is also in /system /bin a file called bootanimation but without .zip)

Working Solution:
Hickups: (Boot Animations Manager re-size option)

Solution for loading bootanimation.zip:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=198
  • Custom Boot Animation (TWRP ZIP INSTALL)
  • Boots animations loaded from /data/local/bootanimation.zip
  • ? Sources state that /system/media/bootanimation.zip should be default location
  • ! I get /data/local/bootanimation.zip as default location.
  • If I re-size the animation, I get black screen boot.
  • The screen never gets to android's X Window Manager.
  • MUST RECOVER FROM TWRP BACKUP

Anyone know how I can re-size full screen boot animations to 720/1280@30fps?

Default Solution

If solution is found, will be posted here.
My solution so far is to download HD 1280x720 boot animations.

I really like the "Space Tease" boot animation from
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2037324

-Probably there's a way to create custom boot animations.
