How To: Change Boot Animation
First: You need a Custom Rom
Root your droid! (obviously?) If you need to root, download 'Universal Androot'
using a Root explorer goto the /system/media directory.
Copy bootanimation.zip to your SD Card.
Connect your droid to your computer with usb and mount the SD Card
Copy bootanimation.zip to your computer.
extract bootanimation.zip to a folder
Inside you will find 2 folders with all the individual PNG files in them.
With photoshop or paint modify the png files to add your custom graphics, OR make/download your own pictures. (Make sure they are 240x320)
Highlight the two folders and the desc file.
Right click the highlighted files.
Select add files to archive.
Select Zip check box
In the compression method drop down box select Store
. (this is key if you dont do this it wont play the animation)
save the archive as bootanimation.zip
copy the new bootanimation.zip to your SD Card
Select the bootanimation.zip file from your SD Card and move it... system>media>paste
REMEMBER: Re-name the default bootloader 'bootloaderold.zip' and the new one 'bootloader.zip' This will stop confusion
