The zips are all meant to be flashed from a pc it looks like. They are going to the correct folder if your on a sense Rom, but the file name of the animation is "spc_bootanimation.zip" and it needs to be "bootanimation.zip". Looks like a batch file being used from the evo Lte. So, best thing to do with these is.
Go into the extracted /animations dir.
Rename to bootanimation.zip
Sense roms- copy bootanimation.zip to
Aosp roms- to /system/media/
****or you can use adb to push files****
Delete or overwrite original bootanimation, or rename to bootanimation.zip.bak if u want to save it
They are pc batch files, and can't be flashed thru recovery, except the ones posted throughout the thread that say recovery flashed. I apologize for mis-information, so, only time they need a manual install is with aosp roms or if you don't have a pc near to run the batch file.
