One of my favorite boot animations. Resized for our tablets.

Copy to /system/media and reboot. You need root access to copy this. Most people use root explorer for this. This is only for aosp roms such as AOKP / CM10 and the like. Not for stock roms!!

Thanks for this. Question, did you have to delete the old boot animation file and did you have to mess with permissions?

You can backup the old boot animation on the sd card, or rename it to something that dont mess up with the new one.

@OT Could you provide more bootanimations? And maybe for the 7 inch and the 10 inch one?

Yes just rename it to bootanimation.old or copy it to a safe place (like the external SD card)

Yes I could resize it and make it bigger, smaller etc I will work on it tonight and update the post. I had a buddy here who wanted it so I thought I'd share it with everyone.

Thanks

You need root explorer to see those folders.

I have been working on this a bit and have failed at it miserably.
I'm trying to get this animation onto my tab:
http://rootzwiki.com/topic/20788-boo...n/page__st__10
Ideally I'd like to get it running in "portrait" mode, which I think means all the images need to be rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise.
I haven't managed to succeed, only make my tab not display anything on screen anymore in landscape mode, and display only like 1/3rd of the screen in portrait mode.
That was fun to fix LOL.
Anyways, any suggestions? It seems like this should be easy!

I was wanting to do the same with the Street Fighter boot animations http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1570007 I might give it a shot and see what happens.
