What is it?
This tool can be used to flash a bootanimation zip file to the Rezound.
(Tool can be modified to work for other phones.)

  • Download and extract attached file to computer
  • Copy your new Vigor_VZW_bootanimation.zip to that folder
  • Select option 1 Make a backup of your current boot animation
  • Select option 2 to flash new boot animation to phone
  • Select option 3 to reboot phone and view new boot animation
To restore your old boot animation
  • delete the Vigor_VZW_bootanimation.zip from folder
  • rename "backup_Vigor_VZW_bootanimation.zip" to "Vigor_VZW_bootanimation.zip"
  • Run tool and use option 2

Other info
The Rezound boot animation is in /system/customize/resource
The bootanimation zip file CAN NOT be compressed. It has to be a "store" zip file.

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!
