Re: can't see bootanimation
Improper flashing.
Are you on a carrier phone?
They often have locked bootloader

I have this problem also. It's an international N7100, sim free. I found that after flashing and when it boots the screen flashes random lines etc. then goes blank but the ROM does boot, you have to be sure to turn the screen off and back on. It's quite annoying!

I hadn't realised it was just AOSP ROMs - Omega 11 and CapModN2 I tried recently were fine...

I also couldn't get into CWM recovery after flashing AOSPs unless I installed TWRP after booting.

Would be great to know what's going on - almost seems like the display is not initialised properly.

Re: can't see bootanimation

I don't know what kernels are included in these roms, but if I remember correctly, the kernel has to support custom bootanimations, otherwise it won't show any. But I'm not sure about this...
Anyway here is a thread about how to add custom bootanimation to ANY rom...

custom boot animation doesnt fix anything, i tried it...kernels also have nothing to do with this since i tried flashing several and still had same problem...i flashed the same rom(cm 10.1) to my friends phone... it worked normally...something is messed up with system files!! dont know what...
