Cool idea for an app. I think a nice feature would be to be able to pick from a library of bootanimations & have the app rename the chosen file, e.g. I have a bios-bootanimation.zip, if your app would let me choose that file & copy it to the import location as bootanimation.zip I think that would be awesome.

You can type in your custom bootanimation like: /sdcard/bios-bootanimation.zip it'll copy it over as bootanimation.zip, down the road if I see people like the app I will add a file manager so you can browse for your new bootanimation.

Version 1.0.1 has be uploaded, the following have been changed/added:

Changelog:

Version 1.0.1:
  • Added support for early android versions
  • Added ads ( sorry :/ )
 
Thank you for making the (slightly) complicated process of swapping boot animations so much easier now...I plan on donating a few bucks once I get out of the red in a few weeks.

And as a suggestion...maybe a way to preview the animation? Or at least a thumbnail of it? Again, just a suggestion...even if it stays as-is I'm still adding it to "the list" ;)

Looks nice, gonna give it a try tomorrow.

Could you please add /system/customize/resource/ as well?
This is where Sense ROMs by default store the bootanimation.zip and android_audio.mp3

Edit: Gave it a quick try before heading to bed.
Pressing the Backup button simply does nothing at all.
Might try import tomorrow, but not sure yet :p
Download looks ok, 4 animations to choose from, didn't try download yet.
No FCs so far.
More tomorrow, might even attach a logcat if you want/need one.

Desire Z running FroYo with Sense, rooted.


Kind regards,
SubWorx

I have a update coming out soon, better backup layout and functions and a new file manager view so you can navigate to pick the boot animation you want to import. You will receive a notification whether you want to install it soon....

Great convenience app!

I would love to see previews as well. It would also be cool to have a random/different animation every time I reboot the phone. Don't know if that's possible, but it would ne sweet. Thanks!

    Yes, is there anyway to have preview menu for animation? Menu like in Theme Chooser.

    Thanks,

    I started work on a preview option, it may be in the next release depends on how late I stay up tonight :D
