Hi everyone,

After publishing the wallpaper azrienoch provided the original XDA TV intro .psd files, so I could upload the original. Instead of a wallpaper I created a bootanimation for Android, so here it is;
The bootanimation is created for 480x800 devices, but if you prefer any other resolution feel free to ask for it. ;)


note: some webbrowsers might not show the animation

Installation
Use Root Explorer or adb to copy the zip file to:
- system/media on CM ROMs
- /system/customize/resource on HTC Sense ROMs

It runs a bit choppy on my HTC HD2, but please let me know on which phones it runs smooth :D
The attached 40% jpg versions mean the images have reduced quality, so run faster.

Downloads:
- 480x800 100% png or 40% jpg
- 480x854 40% jpg (untested)
- 600x1024 png (part1, part2)
- 1024x600 60% jpg
- 1024x600 60% jpg (for portrait oriented devices like HTC Flyer)
- 320x480 100% jpg or 50% jpg (untested)
- 540x960 100% png
- 1280x800 100% png part1, part2 or 80% jpg
note: All zipfiles with name bootanimation_{resolution}.zip have bootanimation.zip inside them, so extract instead of rename!

Update: new bootanimation can be found here

Shannon, Ms.
Man awsome work this should take off like a rocket, ever seens I first seen it on thre XDA- TV I wanted it on my device just like this. Downloading it now for my TMOUS HTC HD2, every HD2 user should grab this for their HD2 as XDA has made it a legend. Keep up the great work man! :D

Got it on my HD2 (GB Sense)...absolutely gorgeous! Maybe a little laggy though (can it be tweaked/optimised at all? :p)

Would love to see more animation...maybe even loop it or something as it stays motionless for a long time once it's finished.

Love it though, will be keeping it :)

Bootanimation 480x854

I made the bootanimation for 480x854 devices. I wasn't sure if the animation should be either portrait or landscape, so I choose the easy way and made it portrait. Please try it out and report back if it works...

update
Removed attachment. See first post for updated version

Love this boot animation. Though choppy, it looks absolutely crisp. Great job!

I have a couple of suggestions for some variants:

1. After the XDA-Developers logo stops at the center, you could make a glow effect or just fade the background to black. It emphasizes our forum name more. :p

2. Alternatively, you could do some nice wavy animations for the background, to make it look more dynamic.

Yea, i would love to see either of these or have the logo sit centered for a moment then continue off the side of the screen and loop, that way it is more smooth.

just flashed kernel so it is taking forever to rebuild caches, some sore of continued animation would be great especially so we can tell if the phone requires a battery pull.

The animation on an HTC EVO 4G running CM7 with a Tiamat SBC 4.0.0 Kernel was a little step-ish, but all together a very nice animation look forward to it getting polished. : )
