Hi everyone!
Whenever we install a new boot animation we always reboot to see how is it?, is it working? Etc..
What if we can see exact same thing without rebooting!
Here is the way...
First install a boot animation
Just in case:

Quote:

1. Rename it to bootanimation.zip
2. Put it in system/media &replace previous one


Now preview:
open terminal emulator & type:
Code:
su
bootanimation
& you will see a full screen bootanimation
Press back button 2 times to exit preview
If you get stuck in the preview read 2nd post!!!!!

Destroy thanks button if it was useful for you

Lightbulb STUCK on preview
for those who gets stuck on boot animation & can't come out

extract the attached file & place extracted file in system/bin(choose to overwrite)
i haven't tested it because it's not happening in my phone so nandroid backup is necessary!
please give feedback & tell if it worked or not!

Rom toolbox can't gaurantee that it'll work...
Sometimes animation comes in toolbox but not on booting
it's 100% correct, & everyone @xda have terminal emulator unlike rom toolbox

Rom toolbox only previews the animation...if your screen is smaller than the animation resolution OR if the animation lags even a bit then android system will not run it

Always press thanks for help
