Hi all! this is my first bootscreen, designed for use with any VillainROM version.
I know you really just want to see the bootscreen, and dont really care what I say, so heres a preview:
first animation:

Looping animation:

Thanks a lot to phaelox, who made the zip attached for you to flash, without him, this bootscreen wouldnt work!

I made this bootscreen because I felt that villainROM is so good it seserves its own bootscreen, and I im kina sick of the nexus one boot

Hope everyone likes it, If you want a version with a custom tagline, or have any ideas for a bootscreen that you would like to see, just ask and I will get back to you.

This bootscreen took quite a while to make (photoshop + gifs = frustration)
and was more fiddly than I though it would be, So all thanks are MUCH appreciated

Well, ive just updated to the latest villainRom, and flashed that same zip again, and it works, so i presume it is ok. I know it wont work on not sense based 2.1 roms, because they have there bootscreen in a different place. However, due to the VillainROM branding on the bootscreen, i dont imagine that will be a problem

I have made one just like yours, that I'm thinking of using with my theme, if that's ok with you.



Wait for the entire animation to load. It'll run more smoothly.

Looks nice, but will need heavilly optimising, notice how mine loads quick? thats cause the gif is really small. Cut down the colour pallate, dithering to max in photoshop "save for web and devices" leave it as it is and it will stutter badley on your hero, and may not even manage ro run properly before the phone boots...
Still, I dont mind you using my concept, I would like to see everyone elses creations!

Firstly, I don't use Photoshop to make my bootscreens. Secondly, I know how to optimize them. I have made mine as bootanimation.zip, as they tend to run smoother than the gifs, and it run perfectly on my Hero.
