Just use root explorer or any other file manager with root rights and copy it. No need to flash.

what rom are you using? Depending on the ROM, you navigate to where it is with a file explorer, rename the stock to whatever, copy the animation .zip that you want to the same folder (renaming it what the stock was, exactly) and you're done.

So I download the stock boot animation and put the files into the bootanimation.zip file I already have?

I'm assuming you've downloaded a zip file from somewhere. Do not unzip it, just rename it to "bootanimation.zip" and place it in the directory that holds the original bootanimation.zip file. You can always make a backup of the original first.

This may depend on the rom, but usually you can put your new bootanimation.zip file in the /data/local/ directory, and the phone will use that without you having to disturb the original.

It belongs in System/media, you must delete the original though or you wont get an animation

I'm trying to change my boot animation also. I changed the zipped file to bootanimation.zip. How do I access System/media ? When I mount, it just opens the sd drive on my computer.

You need to be rooted and you need to do it with your device with some kind of file manager like root explorer.
