[Tutorial] Making a working downanimation
downanimation is different from bootanimation cause in bootanimation any filename can be renamed to whatevar. in downanimation it should be stock names like HVGA_Power_Down_01.jpg/png but jpg is smaller file size, so it's good for some phones.
OK so you failed porting some downanimation from other phones like sensation xe or whateva. But you already resized and crop it to phone display like 320X480 image in photoshop, gimp.
Next thing to do is rename it, download Irfanview it's free.
1.Install and Run it, click File > Batch conversation rename
2.Click radio button Work as: Batch Rename
3.Browse to your Folder where images for downanimation
4.Click on 1 image and press Ctrl+A to select all, then click ADD
5.Review if numbers are aligned.
6.In Batch rename Settings: HVGA_Power_Down_## add # if it has 100 images
7.Make new Folder in desktop and browse it in Output directory for result files then click Start Batch.
8.rename new folder to what is in desc.txt
example: in desc.txt is 320X480 size,android folder, with 7 fps 1 loop 1 pause, put 0 for infinite loop.
320 480 7
p 1 1 android
9. press Ctrl and click folder and desc.txt right click add to archieve choose archive format:ZIP and compression method:STORE then click OK.- This for winrar
10.open newly created zip with winrar or any open the folder and right click on thumbs.db and delete it.
10. rename zip file according to your downanimation on your phone some are downanimation.zip and some are htc_downanimation.zip.
11. Then copy to system/customize/resource/ folder if you overwrite using es file explorer you don't need to set permission,except it doesnt exist you will have to set permission to zip file RW,R,R if root explorer change to RW,R,R. to the zip file.
I have attached a sample here to give you an idea how it look like, also it's newly created.
PS: Make sure your es file explorer settings is [root explorer][Mountfilesystem] in root explorer file manager just click button [R/W]
