If your particular ROM has a non-HTC bootanimation and you wish to return to the original HTC 'Quietly Brilliant' version just do this...

Copy the appended file to the tools directory of android-sdk on your desktop PC. If you don't have android-sdk Google, download and install it.

Connect your phone by USB to your PC; select Synchronize on your phone when prompted and wait for the phone to settle and OK any prompts.

On your PC, open an xterm window on linux or run cmd -w on Windoze to get a terminal window

cd to your android-sdk/tools directory -Replace your own path in the following line!!!

Code:
cd /usr/bin/android-sdk-linux_86/tools
(the following commands are for linux; for windoze miss off the ./)

Code:
./adb kill-server
./adb start-server
./adb remount
the following line moves bootanimation.zip to bootanimation.bak so you have a backup of the ROM customiser's artwork.[

Code:
./adb shell mv /system/customize/resource/bootanimation.zip  /system/customize/resource/bootanimation.bak
now we are going to upload the HTC bootanimation.zip to replace the one we've just renamed and set file permissions.

Code:
./adb push bootanimation.zip /system/customize/resource/
./adb shell chmod 0644 /system/customize/resource/bootanimation.zip
just to check...

Code:
./adb shell ls -la /system/customize/resource/boot*
should show two lines for bootanimation.bak and bootanimation.zip with each line starting -rw-r--r--

When you reboot your phone you should now have HTC's animation.

Just remember the bootanimation is not located in system/.... Sometimes it's located in data/local and in SenseHero it's located in system/media/bootscreen and then it's gif files so this doesen't work for SenseHero Nice guide BTW Also have you thaught about putting it into an update.zip to make it easier?

Here is an update_signed.zip of that bootanimation.zip.
I just signed it, didn't test.

EDIT: This places the bootanimation.zip to /system/media/bootanimation.zip

To work on the Villain Rom - bootanimation.zip must be in /system/customize/resource/

The signed update may well work with other roms?

Have a look at this thread as 1.5 bootscreens do actually work on 2.1 ROMs.

(You need to know where the bootanimation.zip is stored on your ROM first, as this needs to be removed.)

A signed update zip is appended which will return the Villain 12 Rom to HTC's 'Quietly Brilliant' animation.

This is ONLY for Villain 12. It over writes Villains boot animation so if you want to keep that as an alternative the adb push method above will be better.

It has been tested.

Thanks a lot, I've been trying to change my boot logo for some time now but didn't realise that VillainROM's was in a different location.

I know that but no 2.1 ROM has the bootanimation stored there...
