(Tool can be modified to work for other phones.)

Thanks for making things just a little easier!! Before long, all we will have to do is plug in our phone and press 1 for rom flash, 2 for kernel......etc.etc. Ok, probably not, but you guys and your flashing scripts make life a hell of a lot easier on the rest of us! Keep up the awesome work!

Since the boot animation is the same for BAMF as stock, i would imagine its in the same place. I wouldn't think Eris would have moved the bootanimation location and left it stock.
I haven't tried it on BAMF but i can when i get home.

Can anyone try these boot animations from my post on various ROMs using this method? I would love to be able to link to this in my post and have it actually work. We've been having issues with other ROMs since they seem to be more complicated than Ineffabilis. Any help with posts of if this works would be awesome!
