some boot animations
so, some fine work being done up the android theme thread...
i saw this
, and thought i would share it, and tell you guys how i finally managed to get it to work.... i got his copy of the nexus one boot animation, because it's the same resolution as our phones. i unzipped the download, and put the bootanimation.zip (NOT extracted) into my sdk tools folder.
if you even want to consider putting the old one back on, it would be wise to pull it first, then rename it something. the original sprint splash is located at /system/customize/resource/bootanimation.zip
adb reboot recovery
*run custom recovery utility*
# mount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
# rm /system/customize/resource/bootanimation.zip
adb push bootanimation.zip /system/media
yes, you have to get rid of the copy in /system/customize/resource first, and if you just put the new one there, for some reason it doesn't work.
probably the same instructions for any boot animation you want. only in the future you could probably just do the adb push to /system/media, since you will have already have erased the interfering sprint splash.
If you need help, try IRC #Cyanogenmod in freenode.net
Someone may be able to help you there. I will try, if I'm on.
