saw that nice BIOS boot screen on a friends Hero(someone told me it was the "Villain ROM") and made something similar for our Nexus One (edit: list of device specific versions at the bottom) (should be working on other WVGA devices as well):
How to install:
- Download the version of your choice.
- Take a look at the archive with 7Zip or similar.
- 1. There is a "desc.txt" and two folders.
ADB push it to bootanimation path (*): adb devices adb remount adb push bootanimation.zip <bootanimation_path> Now to test if it worked: adb shell bootanimation <press ctrl+c to quit> OR: store on root of SD card open root explorer make sure to make R/W go to SDCard and copy file navigate to bootanimation path (*) rename bootanimation.zip to something else (bootanimation1.zip) paste file and rename bios_bootanimation.zip to bootanimation.zip, if necessary exit root explorer reboot phone Profit = Enjoy Bios boot animation! * The right path for your bootanimation differs between devices and even ROMs, so it is hard to list the right one for every setup. However, you should be able to track down the right one by looking for an existing bootanimation.zip using Root Explorer or ADB. Most likely it will be one of the following: /system/media (try this first) /system/customize (some Evo ROMS seem to use this one) /data/local (should work an nearly all ROMs, as long as there is no bootanimation on /system)
- 2. There are one or more zip files inside.
Choose the one you want to install and see 1.
- 3. I see two folders, one is named META-INF.
Just flash via recovery or extract the bootanimation.zip and see 1.
- 4. I am using MIUI and downloaded a .mtz file.
Just install via MIUI theme manager.

- animation duration depends on ROM boot time, so I can't guarantee it is running to the final screen on all devices.
