Did u assign the same permissions as the original bootanimation, has to be the exact same?

I knew it had to be something simple I was forgetting... Thanks! Any tip to get the sound working with the animation also?

Glad u got that corrected and no on the sound cuz that's the one and only issue I still have, I've renamed it android_audio.mp3 also android_boot.mp3 and even what it's actually named under scripts using Root Explorer (htc_boot.mp3) with no luck plus have been all over this forum asking the same question about sound with no conclusive reasoning?:thumbdown: sorry

I think it's going to depend on which ROM you're running as to what sound file is needed. For Viper ROM it is the system/customize/resource/htc_boot.mp3. I would suggest looking at the Permissions of the mp3 file. start out setting them to rw- r-- r--.

Let me know if this works out for you. I've thought about doing some boot ani's with sound, but haven't had time to try yet.

Actually it looks like it may have more to do with the naming of the folders within the boot animation. I'm downloading Virtuous ROM now to take a look at how their boot animation is setup.

If you have an XML Editor you can look in /system/customize/CID/default.xml. about 3/4 of the way through the file there is a section that lists which files are used for boot up and boot down.

For instance here is what it says in the default.xml from the stock rooted dna rom:

-<BootConfiguration><BootAnimation audiostart="vzw" audio="/system/customize/resource/Droid_DLX_Eye_Animation_Sound_Design_9.21.12.mp3" animation="/system/customize/resource/vzw_bootup.zip"/></BootConfiguration>-<ShutdownConfiguration><ShutdownAnimation fps="10" image="" image_png="/system/customize/resource/hTC_downanimation.zip"/></ShutdownConfiguration>

Notice the audiostart="vzw". If you look in the desc.txt file within the stock boot animation file it looks like this:

1080 1920 30
p 1 15 android
p 1 30 vzw


Here is a quick description of each row in the desc.txt file:

1080 1920 30 >> 1080x1920 Resolution, 30 Frames p/Sec as Default
p 1 15 android >> 1st part uses the images in the android folder and repeats them 1 time, then pauses for 15 seconds
p 1 30 vzw >> 2nd part uses the images in the vzw folder and repeats them 1 time, then pauses for 30 seconds. The folder vzw also triggers the boot animation sound as noted in the default.xml snippet above.

I hope this helps.

In Viper ROM it lists the audio file, but there is no audiostart tag, so I wonder if it just starts playing audio when the boot animation begins

Here is the default.xml snippet from Viper ROM:

-<BootConfiguration><BootAnimation audio="/system/customize/resource/htc_boot.mp3" animation="/system/customize/resource/bootanimation.zip"/></BootConfiguration>-<ShutdownConfiguration><ShutdownAnimation fps="10" image="" image_png="/system/customize/resource/downanimation.zip"/></ShutdownConfiguration>

Nice eye bro, it works now like I mentioned but now this gives me more to work with when I go and play with 'Boot Animation Factory' and who knows I might come up with some good animations myself? lol:thumbup:
