EDIT 9/28: Sorry for the delay restoring the animated GIF previews, I had a real scare I won't go into the details of. If you feel this was useful please to you please sign up with my Dropbox link and get more space for both of us!

I got this animation from Dysgenic's The Droids thread, so huge thanks to him for making it. His version was 480x800 which made it very choppy at bootup for a few seconds before it would get to full speed.

Compared to the smooth CM7 boot animation, I was dissatisfied with the choppyness of this one, so I went about figuring out how to make it smoother. These are the changes I made:

- Crop 480x800 to 416x416 (that's the only space it was using)
- Resize to 256x256 (required to make it smoother, but stretch to 480x480 to fill the screen)
- Save as PNG (higher quality)
- Change fps from 30 to 24 (minimize initial transition between choppy/smooth)

__________________________________________________

It came out pretty sweet and looks like this:



It's SMOOTH as butter and fills the screen unlike the original.

As usual, use Root Explorer to copy the ZIP to:
- system/media on CM ROMs
- /system/customize/resource on Sense ROMs (if you don't know what you have, it's probably Sense)
(rename to bootanimation.zip if downloading the cyan or blue version)

=> DOWNLOAD HERE (Gingerbread GREEN)

Gingerbread GREEN is also available as a live wallpaper thanks to zul8er.

=> DOWNLOAD LIVE WALLPAPER HERE
(This is a live wallpaper .apk NOT a boot animation!)

Honeycomb BLUE mostly for myself:



=> DOWNLOAD HERE (Honeycomb BLUE)

I use it with the awesome Honeybread theme, check it out!

CyanogenMod CYAN:



=> DOWNLOAD HERE (CyanogenMod CYAN)

Verizon/Droid RED thanks to ilhe1s:



=> DOWNLOAD HERE (Verizon/Droid RED)

MDPI versions! (not for the EVO!!!)

=> DOWNLOAD HERE (Gingerbread GREEN)

=> DOWNLOAD HERE (Honeycomb BLUE)

=> DOWNLOAD HERE (CyanogenMod CYAN)

NOTES:
- The 3 above NOT flashable, must be copied to the correct folder using Root Explorer or adb push. Read the thread for the correct folders and instructions.
- All will need to be renamed to bootanimation.zip to make copying/overwriting the old file easier.

Thanks to:

- Dysgenic for the original 480x800 animation
- zul8er for the flashable versions of Gingerbread green, Honeycomb blue, CM cyan, and the Gingerbread green live wallpaper
- MadDogMaddux for the flashable Gingerbread green for Sense ROMs
- ilhe1s for the Verizon/Droid red version

Attached is the original high res version if anyone wants it. It looks a little crisper but it's choppy for the first 3-4 seconds. My goal was to make it smoother.

I'd love to give credit to the original author of this but can't find it for the life of me. I looked through the collections thread in this forum and it's not there, so if anyone knows please let me know and I will add it.

NOTE: This is not the same as the OP version, read the above
