Drop it in there and make sure it is named TMOUS_bootanimation and you will be all set


Oh I think there is an audio file for the annoying ass TMO jingle. Kill that too.

What is the best way to get in there and change the files around? I downloaded Android Commander on to my computer and even though it lets me downloads files to my PC, it won't let me do anything to the android system files because it says I need root, even though I do in fact have root.

Download to SD. Then I use root explorer. PM me your email. I got some goodies for you.

The T-Jingle is just a ringtone, the bootup sound is named ruby_something, I don't remember what exactly off the top of my head, but it is a .wav file.

If I am going to put my own boot animation in here, can I just find a GIF of the appropriate dimensions and rename it .zip, or do I have to take each frame and convert it to a .png and put it in a zip file the same way that the default boot animation is?

no actually T-Jingle is the sound that was used on the original boot animation. as soon as i got rid of it that jingle did not sound when i loaded up the boot animation. i know the .wav file you speak of though. but if that was the boot animation sound why wouldn't it sound now with my new boot animation. there has to be some way to associate the new boot animation with what ever sound file when the phone boots up. as far as creating your own boot animation there are a lot of tutorials on this site. within the boot animation zip file there is a text file that basically tells the screen resolution and how as well as the frame rate and how the file should work. you should dl any boot animation and look at the desc.txt file. that will give you a little of an idea of how it all works.
