Command line interface twrp
Hey guys got a question.... I was on the cyanogenmod thread and I someone posted a possible workaround for the freezing at the boot screen on 4.3 roms... I was told to delete the bootanimation.zip from system/media/ but I can't find it in there... There isn't even a media folder in system from what I see. (keep in mind I'm using the file manager inside of TWRP to try to locate it) I was wondering what the command is to delete the file using the terminal emulator or whatever selection I need to use to delete the zip.
The problem with it locking on the bootsplash seems to be that it couldn't get passed the bootanimation.zip file.
It looks like the method of using ODIN to flash a rooted stock rom manages to erase the bootanimation.zip, where as TWRP was leaving it there. If you get stuck there, go into recovery and fire up a command line interface (TWRP has one) and rm the bootanimation.zip file. I'll look back a few posts to find the path and post it here. Other than that make sure you are flashing the latest gapps and wipe your data and you should be good to go. Some folks have gotten away with a dirty flash but you'll have to uninstall/reinstall a bunch of apps.
