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

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" ...
