[BootAni] Updated BIOS Bootscreen for Desire HD

Hello all,

Attached to this post is an updated version of the BIOS boot animation for your shiny Desire HDs I don't own one myself (just yet at least!), but I was making one for LeeDrOiD's ROMs, and thought it would be good to create a generic one if you are using a different Custom ROM.

This is based off of the original creative/design of frysee! Thanks to him for allowing me to mod this boot animation for the DHD!

I have tested this on my Classic Desire and it seems to work great, so if anyone runs into any issues, please let me know in this thread.

Some things you should note:
  • bootanimation.zip is within the scar45-desireHD-bios-bootanimation.zip
  • android_audio.mp3 is also included, which is start up sounds from an old PC
  • You should be able to replace the originals, either by replacing them in the .zip before flashing, or using S-OFF (or recovery) to replace them after.
  • Most common path for these 2 files is /system/customize/resource

Previews below were mangled by the forum upload process, but they're perfectly crisp 480 x 800 PNGs within the .zip

Note that this did take me a good while (editing 92 .PNGs), since I couldn't use the classic Desire BIOS generator to make the specs change to the Desire HD, so any donations are greatly appreciated, especially if you get a kick out of this boot animation!

Oh, and if you want to include this boot animation on your website/ROM/etc., just send me a PM first...thanks!

Hope you enjoy!

Hi goran, I don't have a Desire HD myself, but I believe you should look in /data/local to see if the original .zip file is there. If so, simply replace it (you'll need S-OFF, or do it via Recovery using ADB).

Do NOT try and flash the .zip that you downloaded (scar45-desireHD-bios-bootanimation.zip) as it contains another .zip file within, namely 'bootanimation.zip' which is the one that you should replace. Neither .zip files are actually flashable, so you'll probably just get an error if you attempt to. With the provided .zip package that I've attached to this post, you should be able to Google and find the answers as to how to replace it if you're still having difficulties.

Thanks for your interest in this too!

It's quite funky. I had a little chuckle when I saw that apparently the HTC Ace has an i440BX motherboard in it though
