Thanks, homeslice! That's awesome. I never would have considered the number of images being an issue because the bootanimation that I had been using has 232 images in one folder. But it's fps is 200. Which seems odd b/c it definitely takes longer than 1.62 seconds to play....Now that I know, I might try to do more. Thanks again.

np..I think it has to do more with the file size of the images, not necessarily the amount of images...could be way off base there though. I've found that a ton of images, at least larger images, stuffed in one folder will do a few weird things (not play at the right speed, throw wrong images at the wrong time, try to loop even though it's set to play once, etc). breaking them up has always alleviated those issues.

Edit: Here's the breaking bad boot sound if you want it

rename to android_audio.mp3, put it in the right place, set permissions accordingly, make sure your volume is turned up, reboot

Thanks! I was planning on trying with audio once I got the animation to work. I'll give it try.

Oh ok. Can somebody create one from this video from 2:30-2:45? Thanks in advance.

Here you go. Rename animation to bootanimation.zip and put in the correct place (depending on your ROM). Set permissions to RW/R/R

Rename audio to android_auido.mp3 and put in the correct place. Set permissions to RW/R/R

Thanks I got animation to work but not the audio. I'm running CM7 and pasted both of the files on /system/media and both files have the same permissions checked off. Do they both go in that folder?

Usually. I think I read somewhere that boot sound isn't always available in cm based roms. I have a set of files you can try pushing to get the bootsound to work..but it'll have to wait til tomorrow when I can get to them

Edit: http://forum.cyanogenmod.com/topic/20076-cm7-boot-sound/ check that thread out..do some googling. Bet you can get it

To get sound working on CM7 and Absolution ROMS install the bootsnd.sh thru terminal emulator. Also reflashing ROM makes bootani sound not work so every time you flash a new ROM you have to do the bootsnd.sh loading every time. Make sure to see if your phone is storing the bootanimation in system>media folder as well as sound. I have HTC Inspire and my phone stores bootani in system>media. Other ROMS store in system>bin (Most likely Sense ROMs-MAKE SURE BY SEARCHING) MAKE SURE TO MACK UP ROM.
What I liketo do is enter system>media and copy original bootanimation to sd card then save to laptop to keep it saved somewhere.

Thanks to the guys over at Desire HD and EVO Thread

Bootsnd.sh [Just unzip file and place in root of SD Card]
http://www.fileserve.com/file/6jERVaY/bootsnd.zip


1. place [bootsnd.sh] on your sdcard.
2. On your phone, open terminal emulator, and type in the following:

su [hit enter]
cd /sdcard [hit enter]
ls [to see list of all files, you should see bootsnd.sh][hit enter]
sh bootsnd.sh [hit enter]

You won't see a confirmation, or message, it just runs, and returns you to a # sign.

(Back out from terminal emulator then reboot phone to get bootsnd to work)
Then copy sound file to phone>sysyem>media folder.

3. Whatever sound file you use must be .mp3 format and you must rename it [android_audio] it is also recommended for sound not to be longer than 15 sec. What I like to do is when I use a bootanimation I time it to see how long it is and then I edit the audio file to the length of the bootanimation so that they end at the same time. Thou phone will cut off sound on its own at a certain point.

Place the android_audio.mp3 in the system/media folder of phone where bootanimation is.
Reboot, and enjoy your boot sound.

My Bootanimation based on this video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAyE7...eature=related

My Bootanimation just unzip files on desktop then move to phone and install with es file explorer. No need to rename files.

Here ya go
http://www.mediafire.com/?pdvy0sfzvf6f6m3 - not flashable as a lot of ROMs have bootanimations in different places. i can make a flashable one, probably, if you tell me where you're bootanimation is stored. It's easy enough to put it there with a file browser though..
