Default [Boot Animation] 24.12.2011 Android Bios Boot animation | New: GALAXY NEXUS!

Hi at all,
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_path>
    Now to test if it worked:
    adb shell bootanimation
    <press ctrl+c to quit>
    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 to something else (
    paste file and rename to, 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 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 and see 1.
  • 4. I am using MIUI and downloaded a .mtz file.
    Just install via MIUI theme manager.

Tell me what you think

Available Devices:
To-Do (requested):
  • Legend
  • Liquid
  • mTS/Espresso
  • Huawei Ideos U8150
  • Cliq MB200
  • Optimus V
  • Viewsonic gTablet
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab

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

It runs too fast on Droid! CyanogenMod for Droid's kernel only boots at 550 Mhz even though my droid is overclocked to 1200 Mhz. It ends about 7 seconds to early!

After all my comments previously about it being too slow (not getting to the end) on previous CM rom, on the new one CM5.0.5 it is running too fast and going black for a good few seconds at the end. If you just made it stay on the android final screen for ages that would be fine to be honest

Yes, I'm pretty sure I can
No, I will not search for the specifications myself as I'm pretty busy @work atm and I'm getting more and more requests for other devices

Hope this doesn't sound too harsh, just give me a little more input and this should be NP
