Hi at all,
saw that nice BIOS boot screen on a friends Hero(someone told me it was the "Villain ROM") and made something similar for our Nexus One (edit: list of device specific versions at the bottom) (should be working on other WVGA devices as well):

nexus-bios-boot-previe1rwt.gif


How to install:
  • Download the version of your choice.
  • Take a look at the archive with 7Zip or similar.
  • 1. There is a "desc.txt" and two folders.
    Code:
    ADB push it to bootanimation path (*):
    
    adb devices
    adb remount
    adb push bootanimation.zip <bootanimation_path>
    
    Now to test if it worked:
    adb shell bootanimation
    <press ctrl+c to quit>
    
    OR:
    
    store on root of SD card
    open root explorer make sure to make R/W
    go to SDCard and copy file
    navigate to bootanimation path (*) 
    rename bootanimation.zip to something else (bootanimation1.zip)
    paste file and rename bios_bootanimation.zip to bootanimation.zip, if necessary
    exit root explorer 
    reboot phone
    Profit = Enjoy Bios boot animation!
    
    * 
    The right path for your bootanimation differs between devices and even ROMs, so it is hard to list the right one for every setup. 
    However, you should be able to track down the right one by looking for an existing bootanimation.zip using Root Explorer or ADB. 
    Most likely it will be one of the following:
    /system/media (try this first)
    /system/customize (some Evo ROMS seem to use this one)
    /data/local (should work an nearly all ROMs, as long as there is no bootanimation on /system)
  • 2. There are one or more zip files inside.
    Code:
    Choose the one you want to install and see 1.
  • 3. I see two folders, one is named META-INF.
    Code:
    Just flash via recovery or extract the bootanimation.zip and see 1.
  • 4. I am using MIUI and downloaded a .mtz file.
    Code:
    Just install via MIUI theme manager.

Tell me what you think ;)

Available Devices:

To-Do (requested):
  • Legend
  • Liquid
  • mTS/Espresso
  • Huawei Ideos U8150
  • Cliq MB200
  • Optimus V
  • Viewsonic gTablet
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab

Known Issues:
  • animation duration depends on ROM boot time, so I can't guarantee it is running to the final screen on all devices.

It runs too fast on Droid! CyanogenMod for Droid's kernel only boots at 550 Mhz even though my droid is overclocked to 1200 Mhz. It ends about 7 seconds to early!

After all my comments previously about it being too slow (not getting to the end) on previous CM rom, on the new one CM5.0.5 it is running too fast and going black for a good few seconds at the end. If you just made it stay on the android final screen for ages that would be fine to be honest

Hi, you can do the Animation with features of the HTC Dream. Thanks :D

Yes, I'm pretty sure I can :)
and
No, I will not search for the specifications myself as I'm pretty busy @work atm and I'm getting more and more requests for other devices ;)

Hope this doesn't sound too harsh, just give me a little more input and this should be NP :)

i lol'd when i saw this on the XDA news. AWESOME. I WANT I WANT!


which of Villain's Hero rom has this bios boot?

+1 for hero (GSM)

please and thank you.

Wow, I didn't even notice this was on the news :D
I was told the ROM is called "Villain ROM" or something similar - just search the Hero developers forum ;)
As I said, I'll take a shot at the Hero version this week.

Just spend five minutes on doing a new version inspired by Apple :D
Edit: A word of warning, though, this one is pretty magical and innovative.
Hero version is still wip.

    [TUTORIAL] Make your own BIOS Boot Animation

    >> Software needed:

    - Paintbrush (or any other image editor you like)
    - Notepad
    - IZArc (the only one that didn't break the ZIP file)
    - Fixedsys font (it comes with windows)

    # 1st Step: Create the text template.

    Using Notepad create the text template with all the info of your phone.

    Example:

    Initialization finished...

    Activating ROOT access SUCCESS!

    Beginning Android OS 4.4.2 boot sequence....



    # 2nd Step: Create the animation templates.

    Using Paintbrush (or any other editor) create a black image with the resolution of your phone screen.
    Copy/Paste the previous created text and position it to you liking. I used Fixedsys font.

    Example:
    PART1.png
    PART2.png


    Logos:
    award_logo.bmp
    blue_ribbon.bmp


    After creating the folders PART0 and PART1 and putting all the files in order (000.png, 001.png, 002.png, etc...), edit the file DESC.TXT and change the resolution and FPS settings.
    Remember to count the seconds it takes for your phone to boot, if you set up a low FPS (Frames Per Second) the phone may boot too fast and stop the animation before it finishes.

    # 3rd Step: Store the file.

    After all the files are in order and in their places, use the IZArc aplication, and Store the files in a bootanimation.zip file.
    Remember to use the Method: Store without compression. If you only see a black screen on your phone boot you might have messed up this step.

    PS: I tried many other application like WinRAR, WinZIP, etc.., and all corrupted the ZIP files. IZArc was the only one that worked for me.

    I will not tell you were to put the files since many ROM's have different locations.
    Here is a Power On for the ROM's that support sound playing on boot. Edit the file to your liking using any audio editor.

    Final work:

    PART1.gif
    PART2.gif
    PART3.gif


    Good luck.

    Samsung Galaxy S3 Bios Boot Animation

    Dear frysee And other friends
    i edited one for S3
    Enjoy and feedback for my mistakes

    ::::
    i used Foxhound bootanimation flash zip
    Flash Via Recovery Or Extract zip and use bootanimation.zip or sanim.zip or ODEAnim.zip inside system\media
    This is Flashable Zip. But is better to replace main zip normally (system/media)
