Why use Video instead of set of pics?:confused:
Ans.
1. It will take less space in /system.
2. This can play the animation with steady fps doesn't matter the power of cpu. (Old bootanimations slow down the animation some times if cpu is not able to handle the animation)
3. At the End we can put any awesome video we like as bootanimation . f*ck yeah!:cool:


Requirements :
1. Rooted Phone
2. Android 4.4.x or 5.0.x(still need testing)

Procedure :
1(a). Download this bootanimation file for kitkat .
Code:
[URL="http://www13.zippyshare.com/v/26992022/file.html
"]Zippyshare[/URL]
[URL="http://www.mediafire.com/download/mx8g6zfukfb6fql/bootanimation"]Mediafire[/URL]
[URL="https://www.dropbox.com/s/0t7lpyrsfys5t1o/bootanimation?dl=0"]Dropbox (Thanks to danielbe)[/URL]
1(b). Download this bootanimation file for lollipop
Code:
[URL="http://goo.gl/CFPYAZ"]Google Drive (thanks to LuanTeles)[/URL]
2. Replace it with your bootanimation file from /system/bin.
3. Set 755(octal) permission (i.e rwx-rx-rx) to bootanimation file.
4. Download attached bootanimation.zip and modify it with your mp4 videos
Code:
[B]Notice :[/B] Below attached bootanimation.zip is extracted from Moto E device.
It contains 2 mp4 files inside instead of 2 folder full with pics.
One mp4 is for main bootanimation and second mp4 video is for looping.
After using this method old type bootanimation may not work so make backup of your phone's bootanimation file and bootanimation zip.
5. At last push the modified bootanimation.zip in /system/media and overwrite and set 644(octal) permission (i.e rw-r-r) permission.

Didn't work on my Xperia Z, running stock KitKat. Shame.. :(
You did everything correctly? like replacing the bootanimation file in /system/bin
The new bootanimation file is 25.27 KB (25872 Bytes) in size.
Check if it is properly replaced
and did you set the permission properly?
And how you know it didnt worked i mean what was the result?

Everything was replaced that needed to be replaced and permissions were set. But no video boot animation..or any boot animation at all. All I get is a blank screen while Android loads up.

I'm getting a different size for the bootanimation file. I've downloaded it again and it's definitely 37.4 KB, not 25.27....:confused:

Sorry i gave link to my phone's bootanimation file :p redownload the file. i uploaded the correct one

:D Easy enough to do..

Downloaded the new file, stuck into the flashable zip I made, flashed and....now my Sony phone is advertising Motorola! Very nice! :highfive:

There's about a second of delay before the video loads and starts playing but that may have been my imagination. Hardly an issue anyway.

Now I just need to find a suitable video I can use. Hmm....

My flashable zip is attached. It uses the Universal Flashing Tool, so it makes a flashable backup file of the files it replaces. However, the UFT doesn't work on every rom...

So I've attached a 'standard' flashable zip as well. ;)


I've made a folder on my Mediafire account with some flashable zips for this. Have a look at my post later in the thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=56960679&postcount=91

Ever going to work on Lollipop? Have you looked at the new code in Moto X's Lollipop update?

binary crashes with SIGILL on armv6 device with cm11 (lg optimus V,)
(as expected, hardly anything is compiled for armeabi anymore intead of armeabiv7a) but it was worth a try.
SIGSEV on icecream sandwich (htc evo v, armv7)
works great on cm11 (liquid smooth) on the same htc evo v though.
Thanks for sharing!

Does not work on HTC M7 Lollipop CM12. Can you make a special "bootanimation" file for lp?

    I didn't spot that you'd uploaded some new videos! :eek:

    I've made some flashable zips to go with them and they're all in this folder here:

    https://www.mediafire.com/folder/h1cacu0430696//Video%20Bootanimations

    There's a mix of 'STD' and 'UFT' zips.

    The UFT ones make a flashable backup of the files that are replaced, so you can easily get your ROM back to normal. But they don't work on every ROM and/or recovery. So that's why there are STD ones as well!

    Enjoy!

    Hi! I've extracted the bootanimation binary file from Moto E4 system image (Android 7.1.1) and it's working on my Moto E2 with LineageOS 14.1 (Android 7.1.2). I can use video files as bootanimation (I've used the Hello Moto bootanimation from the same Moto E4 system image). You can download and test it. The .zip file will backup your old bootanimation binary and copy the new one.
