Since this is a stupid questions thread and I am a "noob", I thought I'd post here. I have two questions, which may be stupid or may not be, but probably are. So here goes:
1) Are there any good original shutdown animations out there? My understanding is that for the SGS4G we need a .qmg file to be pushed (or somehow otherwise got) into the /system/media/video/shutdown folder (as seen here for example: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1011
- thanks tehgyb! 1000x better than Tmo's goodbye!). Because .qmg files are so Samsung-specific, there seems to be little out there, based on my Google searches.
So - anyone got a few good choices of shutdown animations in .qmg format that I can put on the phone?
2) The other day, after installing a ROM, I decided I didn't like it and tried to revert to my previous set-up via CWM in Recovery by restoring the Nandroid backup I had made. Everything seemed to be fine, until I rebooted and got stuck at the intro Samsung splash screen, meaning I had soft-bricked the phone. No worries, I used Heimdall and got everything golden again (and THEN later installed RaverX3X's Octane - dynamite!!! THANK YOU!!!). But my question is, why did I get soft-bricked in the first place? I'm thinking it was because I was moving from one ROM to another without wiping all of the caches first.
Thanks in advance for any insights here!
