EDIT 9/28: Sorry for the delay restoring the animated GIF previews, I had a real scare I won't go into the details of. If you feel this was useful please to you please sign up with my Dropbox link and get more space for both of us!

I got this animation from Dysgenic's The Droids thread, so huge thanks to him for making it. His version was 480x800 which made it very choppy at bootup for a few seconds before it would get to full speed.

Compared to the smooth CM7 boot animation, I was dissatisfied with the choppyness of this one, so I went about figuring out how to make it smoother. These are the changes I made:

- Crop 480x800 to 416x416 (that's the only space it was using)
- Resize to 256x256 (required to make it smoother, but stretch to 480x480 to fill the screen)
- Save as PNG (higher quality)
- Change fps from 30 to 24 (minimize initial transition between choppy/smooth)

__________________________________________________

It came out pretty sweet and looks like this:

It's SMOOTH as butter and fills the screen unlike the original. :D

As usual, use Root Explorer to copy the ZIP to:
- system/media on CM ROMs
- /system/customize/resource on Sense ROMs (if you don't know what you have, it's probably Sense)
(rename to bootanimation.zip if downloading the cyan or blue version)

=> DOWNLOAD HERE (Gingerbread GREEN)

Gingerbread GREEN is also available as a live wallpaper thanks to zul8er.

- All will need to be renamed to bootanimation.zip to make copying/overwriting the old file easier.

Attached is the original high res version if anyone wants it. It looks a little crisper but it's choppy for the first 3-4 seconds. My goal was to make it smoother.

I'd love to give credit to the original author of this but can't find it for the life of me. I looked through the collections thread in this forum and it's not there, so if anyone knows please let me know and I will add it.

NOTE: This is not the same as the OP version, read the above

That should be no problem, you can just edit the desc.txt in the ZIP to say:

320 320 30
p 1 0 part0
p 0 0 part1

And then copy/flash. Let me know if you want me to do it.
I'm comfortable doing that myself. Thanks so much, this is sweet.

Out of interest, what did you create the animation with? I want to start making some sweet animations like this myself... ;)

EDIT:If anyone did download the zip I created, it will not function properly. For some reason it just blank screens... aph, can you fix this? |:

flashed the zip but nothing changed 8(

rooted stock sense

EDIT: just applied the bootanimation.zip via root explorer and gave it the same perms as the original zip and still nothing has changed when i boot.

EDIT2: ok i forgot that i actually needed to drop the zip into /system/customize/resource

LOOKS PHENOMENAL! i think i'll have to find a cool sound to go with it.

    I was dis-satisfied with the 256 x 256 resolution, since it showed up quite fuzzy on my galaxy s2. So i downloaded the original 480 x 480 version, and went ahead to make my own modification. It came out AMAZING:

    color-animate-preview.gif


    I kept the image sizes at 480p, on the SGS2, it's MUCH MUCH more crisp compare to the 256p. Also, the initial choppiness issue is resolved as well.
    (On SGS2, if you pay close attention, you may notice *very minor* choppiness for like a fraction of a second when the animation appears, but it's mostly non-noticible since the image was still in the process of fading in :p)

    Here's what I did:

    - Changing hue: The hue is now changing constantly, instead of one single color.
    - Size: Cropped the original 480x800 to 480x480, getting rid of some unless black area.
    - Image format and quality: Used JPG instead of GIF, since jpg files are smaller compare to gif, this allows me to keep the image resolution at 480p. Down-graded the jpg quality to get the file size down. The resulting zip file at 480p is now even smaller compare to the one at 256p posted by the OP. Doing so drastically decreased both the choppiness magnitude and the duration. Making this virtually butter smooth
    - Frame rate: Kept at 30fps instead of 24fps since i was happy with the smoothness already.

    Disclaimer: I only tested this on my sgs2, so i'm not sure how well it'll come out on the Evo. Also, i'm not responsible for any damage to your phone, so use it at your discretion.

    The attached zip file is CWM flashable zip file, not sure if it works with evo, but the bootanimation.zip can be extracted from it, just look into the data folder inside the zip and you'll find it.

    Anyone who tried this please let me know how it came for them :D

    SPECIAL THANKS to aph for his work and the inspiration, as well as Dysgenic for making the original animation.

    Doesn't seem to work on CM7-RC2. Maybe boot sounds are unsupported in CM7??
    :(

    yes they are
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=979123

    AOSP roms [CM7, Evervolv, ect] don't support boot sounds, only sense roms do.

    false
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=979123

    Is there any way to make it work? Scripting...etc?

    yes
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=979123

    In theory, perhaps, but I don't think its built into the framework.
