Question [Q] Cannot change boot animations/sound

Before you all start yelling at me for not looking around on the forum, i actually did look around, but most answers were different and were confusing me.

Im running bobcat Rom and the boot animation and sound are horrible! I tried alot of methodes to install boot animations but always failed.

Can someone please help me out with this stupid thing?

Thanks ♥

From where you are downloading bootanimation? It must be flashable zip file?

Yea..im quite confused with the bootanimation and bootsound file structure of this phone. Usually it will just be sitting there, bootanimation.zip, but here, all I see is .qmg?

I guess you forgot to paste the boot-animation link.
Your fone must be rooted as you are installing custom rom. you can manually replace the bootanimation file using root explorer.

Try this thread.

Let me know if you still have issue.

you can copy/paste files to the phone in the followingstructure:-

/system/media/bootsamsung.qmg
/system/media/bootsamsungloop.qmg
/system/media/bootsamsungmini.qmg
/system/media/bootsamsungminiloop.qmg
/system/media/audio/ui/PowerOn.ogg
/system/media/audio/ui/PowerOff.ogg
/system/media/video/shutdown/shutdown.qmg
/system/media/video/shutdown/shutdown.qmg.cover

first 4 files are to do with boot animation, next 2 are the boot and shutdown sounds and the last 2 are shutdown animation.

once you copy them accross, you msut set permisions on all files to rw-r--r--

an example of a flashable zip is attached, and this just saves the bother of doing it all manually. just flash it from custom recovery (and maybe need to wipe dalvik and cache, I've heard that changes to system files on odex roms require this?)

p.s. the attached file is the s5 boot animations and sounds. i didn't make it....can't remember where i got it, so apologies to the creator
