Hi All,

These are some custom boot animations for our S6 / Edge, These are not my work

I have simply re-packaged them, with our stock Samsung boot and shutdown animations so they are ready for our devices and can be flashed via a custom recovery, or even just copied via a Root file manager.(see below) I have also made a boot sound disabler and re-enabler.

Samsung decided to use a propitiatory file format for their boot animations so we can not use standard boot animations that we would normally use......

Fortunately there are some great guys here on XDA who have made some .qmg boot animations for us

All Thanks should go to Kachowpow, he has compiled the most comprehensive list of qmg based boot animations in his Thead which is where I found most of these.
He has a S6 now as well, so we can expect to see a new thread in here soon with all the boot animations he has created and hopefully some new ones

If there one you like on there and need it packaging let me know, or even request for new sound(and maybe animations)

I will try to add more plus some images in the morning if requested, but most can be seen on the original thread and theres no point repeating them as some of them are huge(250mb+) unless someone want a flashable version like the ones attached,

If you don't have a custom recovery, simply extract:

qmg's to system\media

ogg's to system/media/audio/ui

and set the permissions

(I would back up the originals first if I were you)

Tip: Some of these have both boot and shutdown animations integrated in them, so if you are wanting a different shutdown animation flash this second.
Also sprint normally puts a spr_ prefix before the file name so you won't be able to flash these and if copying manually put the spr_ before each qmg file name.

Due to our high res screen some animation may look distorted or pixelated, we just need to find/make some higher res ones.but some have speculated this would cause massive slowdown..
Hopefully this will just be the beginning of customizing our phones.

Any question, let me know.

As always this is dedicated to all of you and your hard work that makes this community great.

A quote from the original poster - You need to go thank him if you use any of these:

1) Bootsamsung.qmg = this is the large file that holds/starts the bootanimation
2) Bootsamsungloop.qmg = this is a rather small file can either loop or end the bootanimation
3) PowerOn.ogg = this is file that plays sound during the bootsamsung.qmg and bootsamsungloop.qmg.
4) Shutdown.qmg = this is a mid-size file that plays a bootanimation as the device turns off, best way to activate is to select Power-> then reboot

While shutdown.qmg’s can be customized to work on different bootanimations, I have developed some bootsamsungloop.qmg’s to function separate of the bootsamsung.qmg, this allows the ability to fully customize the bootanimations that you would prefer to view. These QMG’s are listed in a Category called Intermezzo’s as they are Interchangeable without interrupting.
A few things to keep in mind.

  • A custom Bootanimation works best with a custom ROM, it simply does, Stock ROMs do not finish the same, often times the System will perform an “Apps Update.”
  • There is usually a delay between the loading of the Bootanimation and after the Safestrap loading screen appears.
QMG files have limitations some will not be as clean as Flashable Bootanimations, while others will present better.
  • Bootanimation’s require the use of both bootsamsung.qmg and bootsamsungloop.qmg (using one without the other will produce undesirable results.)
Please, give credit where due, there are many Bootanimations here, if I left someone out please let me know, if you want to post my work, please extend the courtesy.

CREDITS:

I give credit to xessus for his instruction and guidance with the Samsung Theme Designer program and QMG Formatting. Also, a Special Thanks to JaeKar99 who is the "Original Bootanimation Designer" that created large portion of these bootanimations seen here, I have reformatted them for our viewing pleasure!

With so many Bootanimations it is often hard to remember all of the sources that I pulled them from, the largest source Developer that does simply incredible work and is simply known throughout the Android community for his work is JaeKarr99 which most of the Bootanimations that appear in this LiBRaRy KoLLecTioN are his, I have simply accepted the challenge of using a difficult themeing system and configured it the best I can to keep these Bootanimations in the best form possible. This was done through the guidance of xessus as his walkthroughs and many many countless hours of attempting this work is hopefully showing a positive. Other themers I will mention are Crakanug with the Black Ops II Bootanimation, CyanogenMod with CM, BKJolly, and the many others, if I fail to recognize I apologize it is not intentional nor out of disrespect, please forgive me.

Thats awesome could you make that one flash through faster? It only gets through about 5 characters it seems overly slow. Good work here keep it up

I could definitely try , the problem with this device is it stats up so fast you only get about 14 seconds of animation.

Another nice thread man. There is a "Marvel Avengers Sequence" bootanimation on the second post from the thread that you link to. All I have to do is replace the QMG files and that's it? Does it have to be edited somehow to better fit our screen?

Nothing needs to be done to it, all you have to do is copy over the QMG's to
system/media/bootsamsung.qmg
- shutdown.qmg
- bootsamsung.qmg
and sounds to :
system/media/audio/ui/PowerOn.ogg

all boot animation are automatically stretched to fit the scrren by the device
distortion will depend on the aspect ratios, if its 16:9 it will look really nice(with most of the ones on that thread are 1080 so will be perfect)

let me know if you have any problems.

I noticed that in System/Media/ I also have:

bootsamsungmini.qmg, bootsamsungmini2.qmg, bootsamsungminiloop.qmq, bootsamsungminiloop2.qmg and BST_bootsamsung.qmg, BST_bootsamsungloop.qmg and crypt_bootsamsung.qmg, crypt_bootsamsungloop.qmg

Should I just leave those other files alone? I'm guessing that the bootsamsungmini is probably Sprint's gay bootani?
Something didn't work properly because I didn't get the Marvel bootani. Now I have just the Samsung bootanimation w/o the Sprint bootani. If I had to guess I have to delete the bootsamsungmini and samsungmini2 files?

I'm afraid to fuk with it too much because I don't have TWRP and really don't want bootloops. No time to Odin back to stock ATM.

Yes leave them where they are . no need to mess with them. I'd back up your originals in case you want to go back. Or even upload them here for people as back ups
