Talking [Bootanimation] MASSIVE 180+ QMG BootAnimation LiBRaRy KoLLecTioN (6/25/14)



Here is the link. Thanks AbhishekS

The above Boot Animation happens to be an Android KitKat “Easter Egg” Boot Animation, which is my current running theme, I tend to update these Boot Animations regularly when I find something that stands out, 2 weeks ago I had a Android Tribute to Sochi Winter Olympic Games which can still be downloaded.

The Boot Animations featured here in this thread are NON-FLASHABLE, that is they cannot be installed through custom Recovery. They are however, installed manually and I will explain in detail how this is done. These Boot Animations run on QMG file format which are located in your Samsung’s system/media file. Inside your system/media file there are 3 files that I use:
1) BootSamsung.qmg-> This is a rather large file that holds the main Boot Animation, it does not loop.
2) BootSamsungLoop.qmg-> This is the smallest of the 3 files, it normally loops, but not always, it can also be inconsistent and run continuously or end abruptly. Begins immediately after the BootSamsung.qmg often without a sequence, screen may dim as it runs.
3) ShutDown.qmg-> This is an important one, as it plays a Boot Animation as the device “Powers Off and Restarts”, restart is the key word, as Power off will not play a ShutDown. Tends to hold on the last image before device reboots.
While the above are the 3 files in the system/media file there is 1 more file that I use that is found in the system/media/audio/ui:
1) PowerOn.ogg-> This is a sound file that is typically 18-20 seconds that plays music during the BootSamsung.qmg & BootSamsungLoop.qmg, before turning off prior to reaching the Lockscreen.
Boot Animation Sound can be controlled under System Volume.
First, things first when you may be more familiar with these QMG files than you know. When your device was new, unboxed, setup, before Root and Unlock. These QMG files were already on your device. If you have Flashed a Bootanimation.zip, YOU MUST REMOVE IT in order to install these Boot Animation QMG files as 2 Boot Animations will not run at the same time and the Bootanimation.zip is set to run as the MAIN Boot Animation.

To move forward, I suggest to either “move” or “delete” the existing bootanimation.zip file. If you are unsure where the bootanimation.zip file is it would be in your system/media folder. As look around for the “bootsamsungloop.qmg” and the “shutdown.qmg” if they are there go ahead and “delete” them. Go into system/media/audio/ui and look for the “PowerOn.ogg” and delete this file as well. See my example of the bootanimation.zip in the system/media folder below.


Once, this is complete and/or if you have never flashed a bootanimation.zip, the next step-> select a Boot Animation that you would like to try and download. Can either move the extracted files to your device or extract the files to a folder on your device and move them to the appropriate folder.

+++ KEEP IN MIND +++ If you just removed your bootanimation.zip whether it was deleted or moved, when you reboot, your system is going to expect it to be there. When rebooting if your device reboots into Recovery a simple Battery Pull or Reboot will be enough to get the new QMG Boot Animations to turn on.
Remember:
bootsamsung.qmg, bootsamsungloop.qmg, shutdown.qmg-> system/media
PowerOn.ogg-> system/media/audio/ui
Change the Permissions to RW-R-R (as displayed below)

As a note: I tend to suggest using the “T” ie “Sticky” Special Permission setting on the QMG files, as I use variable speeds, max file settings, and play is smoother.

A few things to keep in mind.

A custom Bootanimation works best with a custom ROM, it simply does, Stock ROMs do not finish the same.

There may be a delay between the loading of the Bootanimation and after the Recovery Logo loading screen appears.

QMG files are governed by Samsung Theme Designer, which means there are limits however, limits can be pushed to create the best results.

Bootanimation’s require the use of both bootsamsung.qmg and bootsamsungloop.qmg (using one without the other will produce undesirable results.)
I am always looking for new creations to add to the collection, any suggestions, any posts with work provided credit will be given.

Feel free to see if these Boot Animations on other Samsung Device’s and Tablet’s at your Own Risk.

Please, give credit where due, there are many Bootanimations here, if I left someone out please let me know, if you want to post my work, please extend the courtesy.

With so many Bootanimations it is often hard to remember all of the sources that I pulled them from, the largest source Developer that does simply incredible work and is simply known throughout the Android community for his work is JaeKarr99 which most of the Bootanimations that appear in this LiBRaRy KoLLecTioN are his, I have simply accepted the challenge of using a difficult themeing system and configured it the best I can to keep these Bootanimations in the best form possible. This was done through the guidance of xessus as his walkthroughs and many many countless hours of attempting this work is hopefully showing a positive. Other themers I will mention are Crakanug with the Black Ops II Bootanimation, PartimusPrime, CyanogenMod with CM, BKJolly, and the many others, if I fail to recognize I apologize it is not intentional nor out of disrespect, please forgive me.

Go ahead and Reboot the device. You are all done. Enjoy!

Let the FUN BeGiN!

So I followed the steps, and it all works... The only problem is the anumation doesn't have time to complete on startup. The splash screen is on, the bootup sound plays, then partway through the music the animation starts. It plays roughly halfway then it's my homescreen. Then when I shut down, the animation doesn't start at the beginning. Any ideas?


Thanks a bunch for the step-by-step instructions, btw!

Here's what I suggest. First, make sure that you are using a Custom ROM, this is essential as the carrier/stock ROMs always produce inconsistent results with these Boot Animations. The second thing that I recommend is on the qmg files is when setting the permissions either in Root Explorer or some similar file explorer application, first set the permissions to rw-r-r as this is a required permission, but also add the "Sticky" or the "T" which will display as rw-r-r-T as a permission setting. I recommend this on the following files -> bootsamsung.qmg, bootsamsungloop.qmg, and shutdown.qmg . Adding this permission tends to hold the file rather than close it, most of the Boot Animations that I've added to the above collection do not use typical settings and of course Samsung's Theme Design program was not meant to compile 1080x1920 Boot Animations it was meant more to compile 320x480, which these BA's tend to carry a larger format and a range of different speeds. The Sticky setting is most useful espeacially on some of the Animations that run extremely fast such as the "Flash" or the "Olympics".

The sound files are always tricky, which I should note this because the bootsamsungloop.qmg is very inconsistent, this file has it's own speed, eventhough I've set it under the parameters, but if you flash enough of these BA's, you'll notice the bootsamsungloop.qmg is the file that often dims at random and can stop whenever it wants. The Thor1 (not one of my favorites) is an excellent example of this.

There are plenty of great BA's to play around with. Don't focus on the size of GIF's as the GIF's do not reflect the actual size of the images in the QMG zips. Feel free to let me know what Animations you would like to see, I'm willing to add anything except personal custom work, but anything to please everyone, after all that is the purpose of the collection.

Thanks! I'm glad you are enjoying them. While I did consider early on turning these Boot Animations over to flashable zips, I felt the process would slow down the growth of the Collection. So, I continued to focus on QMG formats for a couple main reasons.

Perhaps this can be of assistance in at least giving faster access to the latest Boot Animations, here is the link to MediaFire folder that holds the latest and most recent Boot Animations....
