copy these to your SD card and rename accordingly
Drag and drop them to system/customize/resource
see if that works (thats how I used to do it on my M7)
On My M8 GPe, it's still /system/media
Change the downloaded file name to bootanimation.zip
Set permissions RW-R-R
Make sure you save the original bootanimation (I usually add .bak to the original files)
It worked fine on my M8 GPe edition. Sense Version may still be at: /system/customize/resource
Its the same thing with different name. boot animations name is used for GPe ROMs and other for sense-based roms.
Set the permission to RW-R-R as mentioned in the previous post, you should be good to go. Alternately, you can find some other bootanimations under M8 themes section.
I thought the regular HTC boot up/down was boring so I took the one on Nexus 5 and edited it a little bit I've included some previews too! Hope you guys like it
Lags on the black one are fixed :3 Something I can't say about the white one Hope you guys like it
The ones on the left are boot up animations the ones on the left are shut down animations
