Actually they enable boot animation on galaxy y.
Did you follow all steps? Did you give permissions?

decided to do some research being i never heard of this issue before and it turns out your right @hnkotnis so sorry for saying it was inaccurate
there are some phones whose kernel blocks custom bootanimations, new to me as I have owned only a handful of Samsungs, but like i said technology surprises me
but i would strongly recommend not to flash any scripts or mods meant for one phone on another without combing through all the scripts, a quick brick will often be a likely outcome, turns out this one wouldn't cause a true brick so may be worth flashing.
For the vast majority of android devices this script should not be used, rather just replace bootanimation.zip and change permissions
and if you use or link the script try and respect the author @deathnotice01
as clearly laid out in first post HERE PLEASE CREDIT ME AND LINK THE FILES HERE
so @leodani be careful what you flash and try the standard way first (and always make a nandroid when unsure)
and hnkotnis, what is an aroma kernel backup tool? i mean what is the purpose? sounds unique

@demkantor

I did not take files from deathnotice01, I took them from a custom ROM ported to Galaxy y from Galaxy Pocket.

For Samsung Galaxy y CWM is broken, it cannot backup/restore kernel.
There are other tools which can take backup or restore. But you need to use different tools which can conflict.
I mean different tool for backup, different tool or restore. There are bugs in boot.img renaming..........etc

There was a need of single tool. So I created it.
So I created Aroma Backup Tool for Kernel which can backup/restore the Kernel.

Yes... i did... i extracted the files with EasyUnrar Premium and then i copyed the files in system/bin using root browser.... i long pressed on the 2 files and changed permission I tried to reboot my phone...but it would only reboot into recovery but I managed to fix it since i have 2 pocket neos i tried on one( without doing a backup... noob) and i did a backup of the other one and did restore on the bricked one

It is disabled by Samsung. Now you have 2 options if you need to replace bootanimation
Flash a custom ROM having bootanimation.

If you don't want new ROM, then extract files from such ROM (They will be in place from where I gave you mine, check my old post) and replace in your current rom and give permissions.

If you want me to do it, give me link of ROM having bootanimation for Galaxy pocket neo. I will extract those files and (will try to create a CWM flashable zip for you)
