How to Restore Original Samsung bootanimation for phones that have custom startup animations by Carriers:

The procedure is simple but demands Root and a file manager also whit Root permission (personally I use Root Explorer).

1 - Download and unzip the file
S4_Original_BootAnimation_ChristhianC here: Download

2 - With Root Explorer navigate to the folder:
system/media
copy and paste replacing the original files with 2 available
bootsamsung.qmg and bootsamsungloop.qmg
(or rename your original files before replacing)

3 - Now go to the folder:
system/media/video/shutdown
and replace the file shutdown.qmg

4 - You can set permissions as rw-r--r--
to new files

5- If you want to disable bootup sound go to:
system/media/audio/ui
and search for PowerOn.ogg
Just rename it to
PowerOn.ogg.backup (or any other extension).

Well done!

Ready, restart the device and now you have the animation, startup and shutdown, without Logos from carriers.
As yet we not have the CWM recovery is still not useful to build a zip file for that. At the appropriate time I will do it!
This procedure has been tested OK!

Cheers, all working as it should.

Incidentally, i renamed my old boot animations first to keep them in case I need them again and they don't seem to interfere at all.
