So... I got bored, and decided to make a custom boot animation/sound & shutdown animation/sound based on one of my favorite video games Portal.

Then I decided that having it as a CWM update would be so much easier if people wanted to use it. So, for everyone who wants to try it out...

Flash the update through CWM...
1. Choose "install zip from sdcard"
2. Choose "choose zip from sdcard"
3. Select
4. Choose yes.
5. Enjoy your new startup/shutdown

Keep in mind you'll need a kernel that supports bootanimation.zips for the boot animation to work. The rest will work without such a kernel.

Disclaimer: I take no responsibility if you brick your phone, burn down your house, or any other bad stuff that might happen. You do this at your own risk. I and others have tested this and it works fine for us. Your mileage may vary.

Updated: Also, I remade the boot animation in white as well....

This is just the boot animation .zip, no sound, no shutdown animation.

I installed this, and now when I flash a new boot/shutdown animation the aperture science logo still shows up at the end of the shutdown animation. The boot animation works perfectly though. Any idea how to fix this? I've flashed a, but that didn't seem to fix it either.

HTC Aria support?
Is it possible I could install this on my Aria with the Liberated FR008 ROM? Thanks!

P.s. I was thinking of installing it manually and doing it through Root Explorer so I could save my originial boot animation.
