DISCLAIMER: Any modification to your phone is done at your own risk. I am not responsible for any problems you MIGHT incur by applying these bootanimations.

Also, I have only made/tested these on my Captivate running Cogniton 2.2 Beta 9. I can not guarantee they will work on other phones/ROMs.


Since Designgears has finally released a version of Cognition 2.2 with Voodoo and Boot Animation support, I've been having a little fun making a few. I thought it might be a good idea to make a thread specifically for Captivates, since this hasn't always been easy for us Cappy users to have custom boot animations!

I figure this would be a good thread for everyone to post their bootanimations, and get help on how to make them work.

If you post one that you did, please try and make a GIF of the animation as well. Even though it may display differently on the phone, it would give you an idea of what it looks like.

These bootanimation.zip files need to go into /system/media. I use Root explorer to just copy them from my SD card to that location.

ADB or Terminal Emulator:

So I'll start off! Both of these were created to match my current theme I have going of stainless steel icons, clock, and wallpaper. The DG one I just applied some light flaring.

And finally, the one included in Cognition 2.2 beta 9 (credit to Reefermattness for making the original):

Now I'm sure there are some more talented people than me on these boards, so let's see them!

I'll have to check these out when I get home. For now, I'm using the one for the R2D2 Droid 2.

I actually used this tutorial to get started:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=623960

I had used this kernel that supports the bootanimation.zip files first, but couldn't get it to work until I installed DG's beta 9 Cog 2.2.

It just seemed to work then.

Take note, if you look at some of the ones I posted, my part0 folder is empty on some. It doesn't seem to need anything in there, since the instructions in the desc.txt file tell it not to loop, so it goes right to the part1 folder. That is where all of your images go.

If people still seem to have questions, and maybe don't get that tutorial I posted, then perhaps I'll add a simple quick tutorial at the beginning of this thread. Bear in mind that I am using old school software (Paint Shop Pro 7 and Animation shop), so you will have to adjust accordingly if you use newer stuff.

Anyway, just added two more!

I like "Android Basic". It's simple. I like that.

Assuming your /system partition is set to rw (read-write), you just open a command prompt and cd to the directory containing the bootanimation.zip. You then type "adb push bootanimation.zip /system/media".

I currently use Absolute System to install boot animations, it would be nice to see these added to it's current database

Nice work!


EDIT: Nevermind I just moved your files over to goodies directory of Absolute System, working great!

My first crack at a boot animation...
Hey everyone,

Long time lurker/flasher, first time poster

Inspired by Cognition 2.2beta9 and its new ability to customize boot animations, I thought I'd try my hand--particularly since I know nothing about coding and cannot contribute in any way, shape, or form to that endeavor.

I hope somebody find this interesting/cool/quirky. Let me know what you think:

(Sorry--forum won't let me post images/links yet--you know what to do...) h t t p : / / w w w .broughammedia.com/download/android/cog2-2_b9-bootanimation.gif

(I trust that, if you're going so far to download this thing, that you understand what you're doing and that you in no way hold me responsible if it causes your phone to singe your fingers, kicks your puppy, or speaks in a ribald nature to your mother. You've been warned )

Thanks for looking!

Thank you! I appreciate the comment. Incidentally, do you have any idea how many posts it takes before you can add images and links?

Since my day job is video production, this seemed like a fun and natural extension. Plus, it gives me a chance to work on my After Effects and animation skillz.

If anyone has any ideas or concepts they would like to see for a boot animation, I'm all ears... err, eyes. I'll probably try to make a new one each time a Cognition ROM rolls out, as that is my ROM du jour.

Thanks again!
