Default [Boot Animation] Energy Star PC BIOS

My all time favorite boot animation on my S2 and Evo was a mock bios POST from an old motherboard (The ones that had ENERGY STAR on the top right and tested ram and displayed a POST). It brought back warm fuzzy nostalgia feelings from my first computers.

Anyways, because no one has made one yet for the N7, I decided to have a go. I made it show in landscape since I have the N7 in landscape 99% of the time. The first 2 zips are NOT flashable, so use a root explorer to put it in the /system/media folder. The last 3 are, and include a 'revert to stock' zip as well. If you manually place the zips, ensure the permissions are set at 'rx....r....r '.

For anyone curious, I used the application 'boot animation factory'. It's a windows program that worked flawlessly

And just FYI this is cross posted to reddit on the nexus 7 subreddit.

EDIT: User Spannaa was awesome and made flashable versions, as well as a 'revert to stock' flashable, which are attached below. They are the last 3 attachments.

Hmm, I can do that. The portrait kind of restricts things but it should still look decent.
