Nvidia Boot Animation [8.11.11]
First things first... if you don't know what you're doing, I suggest you read as much as possible on XDA regarding bootanimation.zip files before attempting this to gain a better understanding. 2nd, if you break your ****, it isn't my fault. 3rd , make a backup for the love of god. Additionally, beyond this post I will NOT support this further.
Alright, this is the first time I've ever attempted to do one of these and it's a little bit tougher than it looks. I pulled images from youtube of the Nvidia gaming boot/splash screen and went through one by one, resized, retouched etc...
It looks pretty cool and I created a custom graphic at the end.
It was extracted from this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhEEUkJL4iM
I added this image to the end, it "loops" for a second right after the nvidia screen and right before the phone boots.
I would included video of the whole thing but I've already spent a lot of time on it, maybe I'll do it later.
I use this with MIUI, not sure what else it will work on.
A sound goes with it, I got the sound from Avetny's animation thread
, not sure who the original author was, but thanks to Avetny! You can also download the file from the MIUI theme manager if you're there, makes this process easier also.
If it works for CM7,, these will most likely be the instructions... adb push or use root explorer or equivalent to move bootanimation.zip into /system/media.
1) If you're using MIUI, first, download the nvidia boot sound from the online theme manager and also a boot animation.
2) Then, copy my bootanimation.zip file into /data/system/theme/boots (if you dont have the theme folder, create it to make the theme manager work in the first place).
3) Ensure your bootaudio.mp3 file is also in the same folder /boots or /media based on your rom.
All done! Enjoy! Remember to say thanks!
