Changing your Boot Animation
Hey guys, the boot animation which comes with the Micromax A110 isn't so impressive. So how about a new boot animation?
For the A110, there are two files, bootanimation.zip and shutanimation.zip which are actually the same. The bootanimation.zip is for when the phone boots up and the shutanimation.zip when you power off the phone.
You could search for a boot animation online.
For this you could use droidiser
's tutorial on the same from here
You could cook up one at Android Kitchen
Here, go to the Bootanimation tab. Check the 'Use this mod' box.
Don't bother about the 'Select place for bootanimation'.
For the next drop down menu, the A110 has a resolution of 480x854, so the second option of hdpi(480x800) would be fine.
Now below that there is a list of all the boot animations available at AK.
Click on the radio buttons to get a preview. Select the one you like and go to the Summary tab one after the Bootanimation tab. Then click on Submit Work to kitchen
and then to the pick up page link and wait for your file to cook up.
You would get a download link. Download the file. Unzip that file where you would get the bootanimation.zip file.
Take a backup of your original bootanimation.zip file which is located at /system/media.
(I have uploaded the original boot animation files in my previous post.)
Now copy the extracted file to the above path to replace your original boot animation. And you're DONE.
The A110 has another boot animation file when it powers off. So, if you want to change that too, then repeat the above steps and just rename the file to shutanimation.zip and then overwrite this to the same path above.
Remember to backup the shutanimation.zip file also.
There is also a boot logo right before the boot animation begins. Will post soon on how to put in a custom one, which actually would be replacing the boot_logo file at /system/media/images
I'm using the CIA loading as my boot animation and scribble as my shut animation. They really look cool. Hope this works out well for you guys too.
