Default Changing bootanimation?

So I may be completely blind but I've been looking around and can't seem to find a thread that works for changing bootanimation on the htc one. I've tried replacing bootanimation and also bootanimation and downanimation but I never have permissions to do so even with root access. I'm currently on EclipticOne 4.4. I appreciate any help or direction to the proper thread, thanks!

Not sure if this is what your looking for, but I use this Matrix themed one sometimes. You can just flash the zip in recovery. The one you download depends on how you bootanimation file is named, but the instructions explain that.

It seems the only ones I can get to work are the flashable ones, ended up flashing the google play edition bootanimation.

1. Find preferred boot animation.
2.Go to the root of your system files.
3.Look for folder labeled "System" go into that.
4.Find folder labeled "customize" go into that
5.Lastly look for "resource" Folder go into that
6.Get preferred boot animation Rename it to "vzw_bootup"

For the Verizon One the file name will actually be either hTC_bootup_one.zip or bootanimation.zip depending on the ROM (one of those two will be in that location). EclipticOne 4.4 uses the filename bootanimation.zip.

Edit: If the ROM you're using still has the stock Verizon boot animation running, vzw_bootup would be in there.

I tried this but it says I don't have permissions when I try to paste the bootanimation files.

Try using Root Browser. You should be able to with that.

And just to be safe, just add .bak to the current boot animation.zip. That way you can simply revert back in case the one you choose doesn't work.
