ok...what I did was changed the name of the stock bootanimation to TMOUS_bootanimation1.zip and named my new one TMOUS_bootanimation.zip so it would yake precedence, but on restart, it goes back to the pink tmobile one....is this cause temp root defaults back to stock seetings?....couldn't get it to work....hmmmmm

When you reboot, everything in the system partition gets overwritten (correct me if im wrong) so placing a new bootanimation will result in it just getting over run. Thats also why root doesnt stick. Until s-off is released thats the way its going to be
