Also, part of the condition may be that the above file is already missing. If it's missing, put one of our other bootanimations there (as in, one of the 3 i've done for eos 1.0, stock or the two from the other thread, no others) and reflash.
As much feedback as you can provide would be infinitely helpful in assisting in our research of ics bootanimation sequence handling.
..And it may fix your problem! :P
Thx in advance,
