Hello everyone,

A few weeks ago, after using the Android Emulator for the first time I wondered how the built-in boot animation would look on the phone itself. Quick search showed no-one had bothered.

I didn't keep it as my "daily driver" but since I went to the trouble of capturing the animation and editing it into something usable, I thought some people here might like it nonetheless.

Enjoy,

Darkshado

Actually, this animation came with my G1 back in the day in one of the stock ROMs. I wanna say 1.6 is when they started using this animation. I prefer the old 1.5 version tho

With all the flashy, complex ones people throw around, it's kinda nice to have a simple straightforward one for a change.

Not trying to be the bad guy but; most android devices actually "fall-back" to this if you delete or rename /system/media/bootanimation.zip (verified on thunderbolt and xoom) The only thing missing the the initial "ANDROID" at the top. Deleting it actually can speed up your boot times and makes your system take up less space because there are no added files.

Actually, its already built into This App (there's a free version with it as well). But this seems like a much cleaner way of doing it.

Its a good idea. My Acer a500 came with iit out of the box. Imagine that. A public product running honeycomb 3.0 with the stock android boot animation!

That's true. Lol. All do afaik.
Some things just shouldn't make it to mainpage... :P
Just like all those reviews about sony erricsson devices.
Seriously? What's up with that? How much did they pay?
