Yes it is possible to save the original bootanimation.zip using ADB.
adb pull /system/media/bootanimation.zip bootanimation.zip
That being said, my post entitled custom bootanimation w/o root
in a separate thread hints at why you don't necessarily need to.
The tablet will first look to /data/local
and then /system/media
for the boot animation. The Asus boot animation is found in /system/media
and you need to have root permissions to write to this directory. However, root permissions are not required to write to /data/local
. Reverting back to the stock boot animation is as simple as removing the custom animation from the /data/local
