AROMA INSTALLER COMING SOON... This will be a universal install of BOOT ANIMATIONS including "Enable Custom Boot" for Samasung. It will also Have "Samsung QMG Shutdowns" and "Boot Logo" options for Moto Droid RAZR Maxx, RAZR Maxx HD, and Moto Atrix.


This is a small collection of Boot Animations that I have found over the years of cruising around the pages of XDA. Some were created by the creative minds here and some created by myself. Either way I post them here to share with the community that has given me so much. This collection has been ported to fit 1280x720 xhdpi screens. Feel free to check out my original posting for even more bootanimation include flashable installer that includes the fix for the .qmg files Samsung users need.


THE QUICK GUIDE TO CREATING YOUR OWN BOOT ANIMATIONS

"because I can feed you fish and you're good for the night or teach you to fish and you'll be good forever!!"
I have enjoyed boot animations since I started messing around with phones. I finally felt comfortable enough to start making my own and this is how i did it:

1 - First is you need an animation such as a video clip or gif whatever. I personally like them to be less than 30 seconds with the main focal part about 10 secs. By that time the phone has started up.

2 - then you need to extract the frames/convert using infanview or similar app, to image format, jpg is smaller, png is better quality and some just plain look better this way. Using Irfanview in the "options" menu click "extract all frames" then you can fine tune using "file" menu "batch conversion/rename" option

3 - download Boot Animation Factory and thank the dev for such a great tool for previewing and creating Boot Animations. From there the app will take you to creating the bootanimation.zip file needed for your phone.

4 - Then it's just a matter of getting it to where it needs to be. You can check my thread here which gives all the the different locations for various phones store the file for manual installs. There is also the "flashable zips" and "the Aroma Installer" for multiple options!

5 - last thing is to give thanks and credit where it's due and share your wonderful new creations with all of us here on XDA!!! Thank you


that is a very quick run down of how I am making Boot Animations today

It sounds like you were able to locate original bootanimation and location? Just make sure the name of the new bootanimation matches exactly what the original says, then you need to make sure permissions are at to rw-r--r--. If you have never changed permissions before use a file manager like es file manager or root Explorer, long press the file and change permissions so the top set of boxes has the first 2 checked and the next two set of boxes down only have the first box
I posted a screenshot.
If that doesn't work must put the stock one back and should be good. Let me know if that works for you.

Thanks stangdriver44 I was able to do all that but my problem is that after I did all that you described I turn it off and turn it on, the animation starts but it get frozen almost at the end and that's it, I can't use the cell

WOW!! I'm so sorry to hear that something relatively simple as changing the bootanimation turned out to be a nightmare for you. I wish I could've been more help to you. I've just never had or heard of such an issue like this until now. I have had a few here and there for unknown reasons not work over the past few years. Usually it will just show a black screen and then finally boot up though. I forgot to remind people in the OP to make a nandroid backup before trying this. As I would ALWAYS RECOMMEND backup before trying anything new. Again though I'm sorry to hear that it was such a major ordeal. I hope this doesn't scare you way from modding and customizing your android device as to me personally this is one of the greatest joys of an open source device.

I know!! it looked very simple but don't know what happened! then I try to reflash it something else went wrong etc. etc.so I end up using a GSM nokia for a week
In retrospect it was a very nice week! hahahaha that week I only check my email/facebook/etc, etc when I was at home at night and not everyday...anyway this won't scare me, I'll try it again! I want that bootanimation on my phone!!

I am really sorry you had this unknown(right now) problem! You may have to grad from the OP that I personally don't have this phone, but my girl does. I will go through each bootanimation myself and find a solution for this. It will help me to know which one you tried and what steps you took? Again in very sorry for this problem. I have used all of these on my current phone (Samsung S2) and have used on my past 3 phones. Keep you all posted. In the mean time you should check out my other CONFIRMED working mod
