Haven't tried it yet... I believe you have to use this app, with another one, called "busybox"... I would try it, but the reviews is a mix of good, mostly bad reviews...

You need to have Zedomax Epic Touch Kernel installed or any other kernel that supports it. See this thread

If you know how to use ADB, you can simply enable your Android filesystem as read/write and copy the file over OR if you are not so inclined or simply want a faster/easier way, you can download ES3 from the Play store

find a bootanimation.zip with 800x480 resolution. Download the bootanimation.zip file and copy over to your Epic 4G Touch's internal storage disk drive.

Using Root explorer, find the file bootanimation.zip file you just copied over and select "Copy".

Then browse to the /system/media directory, enable r/w then paste.

Reboot your phone and enjoy your new boot animation.

This will only change the boot animation after the Samsung boot screen.

Works for me.. I'm running note 3 n900t. Cf auto root and cwr. . I had to install busy box and there was a flashable "enable" boot animation package on the forums that you load through CWR or equiv. Once I did that I was able to load up any of the boot animations from the Boot animation root app without issue. And you can even load in custom ones you make yourself or get from the site here like the marvel intro
