Alright folks, here's something a little different that I've been working on for a long time.

It's a boot theme - a combination of splash screen and animation - inspired by the Skynet autonomous computer network from the Terminator films. The animation itself is long (30 seconds!) so you aren't likely to see all of it, but this is by design.

Due to the file placements and their sizes, we've prepared this as a flashable zip. This means that it is installed from recovery (the same way you flash roms) so no extra fiddling around is required.

Quote:

Word of Caution: this will overwrite the existing splash screen as well as the bootanimation.zip from /data/local . These files will not be backed up automatically! If you need backups, you're on your own to do this prior to flashing. Information regarding the manipulation of the splash screen can be found here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1410040

The usual disclaimer applies. Use this file at your own risk! We tested it and it works but we are not responsible for damage to your device.

Click here to download!



(REMEMBER, THIS IS A FLASHABLE ZIP NOT A BOOTANIMATION.ZIP)

one love-

Actually, it's still real without the pictures, but I put them in for the paranoid. It was meant to be something of a surprise but I guess I have too few posts to be assumed to be legitimate.

No video aside from these photos will be rendered. Sorry! If you'd like to pull apart the sequences and render them yourself, you are more than welcome to do so. In fact, this animation may even be adapted to other large scale wide format devices if desired just make sure you let me know about it.

The animation is *bad ass*. Just trust me and try it!

Angry Easy man...
I didn't mean to come across as untrusting or accusing! You're legit and thanks for the post, the pics, and the sweet animation. My previous post was meant as a tongue in cheek smartalec reply. Great work!!!

Oh it's perfectly ok...no offense taken. I'd just literally spent days on producing this followed by a 15 minute render for just over 700 frames and posting some preview animations meant extra work !

I don't usually do the forum thing because of all the issues with it (you know what I mean, sorry mods I love you xda) and it didn't occur to me that this could have even been a potentially dangerous file coming from a newbie username. I'm part of team eos but people really only know me on IRC. I should do some official banners so people know the poster is from the team but that's another thing ...

enjoy!

Here's a quick gif I threw together for you to silence the critics. It's a bit small b/c the program I use couldn't handle making the gif out of the large images.

Thanks for the preview gif

BTW: If you're familiar with Terminator and wondering what's happening in the sequence, it's not something cheesy like it may look like from previews. It's actually a startup sequence for a handheld radio device (much like your Xoom) that a human would have theoretically used to interface with the global skynet network and interface with the 'cloud'. It reveals more as it gets to play longer..

Skynet Boot Theme
Hi,
I flashed - I guess my boot time is pretty fast... didn't get to see the full boot animation, and for some reason, little that I did see came out fuzzy on my screen. Weird
I dl'd again, flashed, same thing. I did not get to experience the awesome'ness like the rest of you ...

As a troubleshooting step, could you please set your filesystem to r/w and delete your /system/bootanimation.zip and reflash?

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,



one love-
