I got tired of that default animation so I whipped this one up to replace it. It's based off of the one from the Nexus One but completely re-done and optimized for the Xoom. This retro style BIOS POST animation is reminiscent of those older PCs we all miss and love.

This will work for both rooted and non-rooted Xooms. If yours is not rooted, you can place this in /data/local and it will still work. If your Xoom is rooted, you can place it in /system/media or /data/local. Let me know how you like it and don't forget about the Thanks button.


Code:
adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local

I removed root and locked it back up before the OTA.

I can't find a data/local to put this zip in.

Do you need to boot into recovery and push this via adb if you're not rooted?

I was hoping I would see you with a Xoom. You have been my fav developer for past few months for my droid incredible. Are you planning on any roms for the Xoom? Good luck with everything my friend.

I did the same thing. If that directory is not there, you can create it.

Code:
adb shell mkdir /data/local
adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local
