Default [Q] Cannot change Bootanimation

OK I have changed my bootanimation many times with many roms. I cannot get it to work with my SIII using C-Rom. It's 4.4.2 (and an awesome rom btw). I placed the new bootanimation.zip in the system/media directory using root explorer just like always and I used one that I know for sure works because I have used it before. But instead of the new boot animation it just shows the image I attached and it kind of shimmers. I tried putting the original bootanimation.zip back in place and it still is this stupid picture. Any ideas?

I had a problem like that sometime ago,but i just resolved the situation by using a program (.apk) such as rom toolbox.Did you try that already???

Please make sure the permissions are set correctly on the new bootanimation. (rw_r_r )

In Root Explorer, under properties of the file, you can change permissions. The Animation won't work fine unless you set the right permissions.

Glad its worked out.
