Info 2 [E] Changed FPS

Hi!

I changed boot animation logo with this app:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...oot.animations

and I try to run it more smoothly with changing FPS. Before I confirmed change from 20 to 60 fps I get a warning says that in some cases boot animation won't work beceuse of that, but now my whole screen doesn't work. It's all black. App changed some .txt file but I can't remember what it was. Can someone help me to revert FPS to previus state pls.

I tried to sent email to developer but they didn't answered.

Which ROM are you using? Which firmware version?

You need to flash the ROM again (in case of a custom ROM), or flash an FTF file (in case of a stock ROM). Wiping data isn't needed for custom ROMs as long as you're using the same one; flashing an FTF will automatically wipe data.

The file you're looking for is desc.text.
Open up the bootanimaton.zip in /system/media (do it on a PC, not your phone)
In the zip, look for desc.txt , open it, and change he third number in the first line of the file to whatever FPS you want.
Save it, and close it. (It should get automatically updated in the zip if you didn't close the archive)
That's it!

HIT THE BUTTON IF I WAS OF ANY HELP !

I am using default ROM. Can you give me some tutorials about flashing FTF file.

For some reason windows can't load my phone. Even, on Sony Companion it's searching for device indefinetly, but on phone green light is on.

Okay... do you have CWM? It might negate the need to flash an FTF.

If you don't, see this guide for how to flash an FTF: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2054486 The FTF you need is this one: http://www.mediafire.com/download/ps...1.3.A.0.47.ftf

Errrrr....let me rephrase.
The /system folder cannot be accessed by connecting your phone to your PC.
What I meant was, (on your phone)copy the boot animation.zip to your sdcard (or internal sdcard) and then open it up on your PC.

Wait, what??
You changed something in the boot animation, and now the entire display doesn't light up? Even though the boot is successful?
That's strange. In that case, if what I mentioned is the cause, you have a way to procure the zip through adb.

Connect the phone to your PC, open up a terminal window/cmd and type
Code:
adb pull /system/media/bootanimation.zip
The zip should end up on your hard drive in the folder where you started the terminal.
NB:This requires you to have adb drivers installed(or use tools like Minimal ADB and Fastboot), and have USB Debugging ticked in Settings>Developer Options

I did this using Minimal ADB tool, changed value to default, save it, close it and update zip. Now, my phone won't even start, red light is blinking.

EDIT: I repeat process again and when I open desc.text value is still on 60, is there something I didn't do first time? I opened that file with winrar, changed value and save. This second time I didn't change value, and red light isn't blinking any more. Is 30 FPS default for my phone?

Can I somehow delete bootanimation app so it wont read setting from it?
