>> Software needed:

- Paintbrush (or any other image editor you like)
- Notepad
- IZArc (the only one that didn't break the ZIP file)
- Fixedsys font (it comes with windows)

# 1st Step: Create the text template.

Using Notepad create the text template with all the info of your phone.

Example:

# 2nd Step: Create the animation templates.

Using Paintbrush (or any other editor) create a black image with the resolution of your phone screen.
Copy/Paste the previous created text and position it to you liking. I used Fixedsys font.

Example:


Logos:


After creating the folders PART0 and PART1 and putting all the files in order (000.png, 001.png, 002.png, etc...), edit the file DESC.TXT and change the resolution and FPS settings.
Remember to count the seconds it takes for your phone to boot, if you set up a low FPS (Frames Per Second) the phone may boot too fast and stop the animation before it finishes.

# 3rd Step: Store the file.

After all the files are in order and in their places, use the IZArc aplication, and Store the files in a bootanimation.zip file.
Remember to use the Method: Store without compression. If you only see a black screen on your phone boot you might have messed up this step.

PS: I tried many other application like WinRAR, WinZIP, etc.., and all corrupted the ZIP files. IZArc was the only one that worked for me.

I will not tell you were to put the files since many ROM's have different locations.
Here is a Power On for the ROM's that support sound playing on boot. Edit the file to your liking using any audio editor.

Other files:



Final work:



Good luck.
