Thumbs up [SOLVED] Boot Animation Question

In general, will disabling boot animation result in faster boot up? If so, I'm using BeanStalk with Nova Launcher (and LOVING it - Thanks Meticulus). Would I delete (or move to another location to put it back) the /system/media/bootanimation.zip file to do it? Or is there a more user friendly way of disabling it? I did look around and couldn't find a setting that would do it. Thanks in advance

Afaik, In general, yes you will get a faster boot up by disabling the bootanimation. You can rename it, move it or delete it to disable it. The stock "Android" boot animation should play...
  • Simply because "A" precedes "B" doesn't necessarily mean that "A" caused "B"
  • Let's work the problem people. Let's not make things worse by guessing.
  • I don't care about what anything was DESIGNED to do, I care about what it CAN do.

Default Bootanimation.Zip

Thanks for your reply Meticulus...

I use ES File Explorer, and tried moving, renaming, and deleting that file, but it won't let me. I looked at its properties, and it shows that I have read & write access to it.

This is the same issue that plagues build.prop editing and, Viper4Android. It's remounting /system read/write. You should be able to "adb root" then "adb remount" ...
