1. Make a folder named bootanimation.
2. Inside the bootani folder you made, make 2 folder, *part 0* and *part 1*
3. make a desc.txt file and write following words inside.

Code:
240 400 15p 1 0 part0p 0 0 part1


Save it and put it in bootani folder.
[NOTE:]
240 400 = 240X400, screen resolution of Galaxy 3.
15 = 15fps, play 15 frame per second/play 15 picture per second.
p 1 0 part0 means it will load folder part0. After it finish folder part0, it will keep replaying folder part1.

4. Copy the file and install in your mobile phone.
5. Then you need a few hundred to a few thousands of photo.
[NOTE:if u want a 10 seconds boot animation, u need 150 photos. Because the animation is running at 15fps (15 frame per seconds / 15 picture per seconds).]

6. You can download a few people's bootanimation.zip and extract it out and save in folder part0.
[NOTE: Galaxy 3 screen resolution is 240X400, if u download a bigger resolution, just compress it or resize it into 240X400.]
7. Arrange the photo.
[NOTE: If you want a smaller size of bootanimaition.zip, use jpg file type. Sometimes the PNG file size is smaller than jpg.]
8. Label from 001-999 or 0001-9999
[NOTE: ONLY use 4 digit number, example 0001-9999, if u want >1 minute of animaition {1 minute of boot animaition =60secX15fps=900 photos.}.] )

9. After finish creating, save it into folder part0 and copy photo that you want it to keep replaying in folderpart0.
10.Paste it into folder part1.
11. Then highlight part0, part1, desc.txt and press right click > add to archive.

12. Then you will see winzip coming out.
13. Select ZIP in archive format. Then choose STORE in compress method and type bootanimation.zip in archive name.
14. Now connect your phone and computer.

15. copy the bootanimation.zip into SD card.
16. go to all apps > root explorer > sd card > copy bootanimation.zip > press back > go data > local > and you will see a bootanimation.zip

4. Photoshop or something like that if you to make one from scratch-i prefer gimp free open source and light (optional but recommended)
