I was messing around with root explorer and noticed that i was able to delete my boot animation with it when i was mounted as R/W so i thought i would try to copy one and it also works... so no need to push with adb shell.. here are the steps

1. take the boot animation make sure it is named bootanimation.zip and copy it to your SD card
2. then open root explore and mount R/W and then navigate to the file and press on file till the menu comes up and select copy
3. then navigate to data/local and paste the file in the local directory
and you are done, this can be done with the android_audio.mp3 file as well just paste it to the same place.

just thought this would make it easier for people instead of using adb shell

Exactly what I was looking for, I'll give it a try, thanks.

The Animation worked but the Audio didn't, do you also need to put the Audio in a zip file?

I didn't think that you needed root to access /data/

So in that case, would need Root Explorer? Wouldn't any file manager do?

Yeah, you dont need root access at all for this.

just adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local/

need to look at the text file in your bootanimations.zip and add the words android to the front of the text in that file
