Default [Dec 31][APP][COLLECTION][FREE] The Boot Box Project - Your Boot Animations Database.





The Boot Box Project is a community project that aims to produce a large database of easily accessible Boot Animations. What makes the Boot Box Project powerful is your ability to contribute, users may submit their boot animations directly from the Boot Box app (beta version 2.0 required).

Boot Box started as an attempt to put all of my work, free of charge, in an app - eventually it expanded towards the community and now everyone is allowed to submit their work. Boot Box is a must have for anyone who loves to customize their phone.

Acknowledgements - Special thanks to @ProfessorHipster for creating the Boot Box icon and to XDA Developer @D4rKn3sSyS for the local boot previewing implementation. Contributors List is Incomplete

Contribute (the uploader) - You may upload boot animations to Boot Box directly from the Boot Box App (v2.0 required). If you follow threads that take in requests, such as this one: [Team GFX Bandits] ▆ ▇ ▉ Bootanimation Hub™ ▉ ▇ ▆ , [May 19][NEXUS 4 BOOTANIMATIONS BIBLE] , or [BOOTANIMATIONS LINKS/INFO] [TUTORIAL] Galaxy Nexus Custom Boot Animations [31.03.13] you may post animations made for you (or by you) to Boot Box.

Feedback and/or suggestions can be send to ssgutierrez42@gmail.com.





Some features of the Boot Box App:
 
  • Dynamic Database. Animations are fetched and updated dynamically from a database on the Boot Box server.
  • Categories: show/hide certain animation categories*
  • Upload your boot animations directly from the Boot Box app.
    The built-in Boot Box Uploader creates the required resources for you, including the GIF Preview.
  • Scrambler: allows you to play a different boot animation at every boot.
  • Boot Box Factory: create your own boot animations straight from Boot Box based on a static image or on a set of images.
  • Animations can be previewed via a YouTube video (if the uploader provides a link), via a GIF preview, or via a ZIP preview (the animation is downloaded and played in a simulated environment).
  • Animations have a thumbnail that gives you a small idea of the animation before previewing it.
  • Local Boot Animation ZIP previewing, installing, and GIF creation (thanks to XDA Developer D4rKn3sSyS).
  • Flexible boot animation and cache locations for different devices.


New Boot Box update (v2.0)

NEW! Upload your boot animations straight from the Boot Box app.

[Dec 31] Changelog (v2.0)
  • All new uploader, you may now upload your boot animations to Boot Box, from Boot Box (BETA, please test). The uploader crops the animation thumbnail for you and the uploader creates the GIF preview for you.
  • HUGE database overhaul. Completely changed server handling. Entire new database with new methods. Older versions of Boot Box are no longer supported.
  • Categories! hide/show certain categories.
  • New Setup Wizard on first run*
  • Fixed all cropping issues (CropLibrary)
  • Replaced Contributors List with Latest Additions
  • Improved SharedPreferences Handling
  • Added a few warning messages
  • Removed the ability to change the Boot Box Icon
  • Boot Box now accepts BitCoin donations
  • Other UI goodies and small bug fixes that I can't remember.

The Boot Box Project App [V2.2]

Boot Box PlayStore Link (FREE): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.overhaulingmod.bootbox

Support Notes

Boot Box currently supports the following five resolutions: 768x1280, 720x1280, 800x1280, 480x800, 1080x1920. If your device's resolution isn't listed, install and use Boot Box at your own discretion (I wouldn't like to hear about a 320x240 phone "exploding," or refusing to boot, after loading an animation with 1080x1920 assets, please!).

Gingerbread support is currently limited.

this is a very promising app project.. thx for the work..

for the animation database part, currently it only shows 10 animations and i have to search in order to see the others..
is it possible to implement an "animation browsing" function so that i know what are available in the server?

As of May 25, there are currently only 10 boot animations on the 768x1280 section of the Boot Box beta (unless you have a Nexus 4, then an extra two become available). All animations on the server will be listed in the app though

I'm going to add more animations soon, they should begin to show up without the need of an update.

Was wondering why my bb stopped working. Nice to see it on PlayStore. Very excited about other updates, already have a lot of animations and loving it. Thank you!

Support for the S4 running AOSP will definitely come

Custom boot animations seem to have issues on Samsung phones running touchwiz. Patches that fix these issues do seem to exist.

If I'm able to embed these patches into Boot Box, then these devices will also be fully supported
