Confirmed working on vzw G2 on CM11. Thanks a ton OP! This was the last thing I needed to get my G2 One-ified . I've got every apk found on Android Libre working if you don't have them for yourself, check them out!
This one won't work on HTC phones with Sense installed, the path to bootanimations is different there as well as the filename. The path there is /system/customize/resource and the filename would be hTC_bootup.zip for the animation while the phone is starting and hTC_downanimation.zip for the animation while the phone is shutting down (you can have different ones for starting and shutting down with HTC phones on Sense firmware). This is just to avoid issues for HTC users who don't have CM on their phone.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
