Wink [BOOT ANIMATION] DOCTOR WHO WEEPING ANGEL w/ SPLASH SCREEN

My first boot animation... A little large, but it works... and if you like Doctor Who, it is awesome, especially paired with the Splash Screen!

Place bootanimation.zip in the system/media/ folder, and flash "flashthisimage.zip" in recovery.

Special thanks to wewoapsiak for taking a second to make the gif for the OP (since I was too slow!!)

I now love you forever. I haven't seen what it looks like. But any Doctor Who boot animation has to be good.

Weird,

I flashed it and said everything was good but all I see is the Keep Calm message, then android and nothing else.
Obviously when I looked at the PNG files it was ok. Was so hoping this would work.

You can flash "flashthisimage.zip" in CWM or TWRP, but bootanimation.zip is not a flashable zip... Gotta manually move it to system/media.

Give that a try and let me know.

No joy unfortunately. Could it be some kind of permission issue or maybe a difference in ROM...I'm running Liquidsmooth JB so maybe that is causing the problem. Had to restore the backup. Gonna try 1 more thing and I'll let you know. LOVE to get this working though. The PNG's are fantastic!

OK....partially working now by moving the bootanimation.zip file directly to system/media and changing permissions to rw- r-- r--
I don't get the BLINK message but do get the angel moving and changing face form...

Next to see about the message. haha

Just unpacked them both again and can't find the Keep Calm png files anywhere. So confused and really shouldn't be doing this at work. haha

I'm on the ktoonsez AOKP and it works fine... so I'm thinking it was the permissions that needed to be fixed like you did.

The keep calm message is a splash screen that should show right before the boot animation starts...

Probably so. It's the splash screen included in one of the zip files? I couldn't find it when I extracted them to look for it.
