Well I went looking for one of those cheesy BIOS bootanimations and for the life of me couldn't find one for the Infuse. So I made one based on the layouts originally used HERE and I thank frysee for his work and the inspiration as well as for porting for so many other devices. And I said to myself, self, if I'm bored enough to do this I might as well do some theming work to go along with it. I also really like green so I figured I'd dress my install of S7 up a bit with even more green icons than it already has! Attached is a copy of the package I put together with the mighty help of the UOT Kitchen. I know its cheating but I figured I know where everything goes to do it manually but I was in a meeting and bored and felt like being lazy. I am also including the zip of just the bootanimation in case you guys don't like green as much as I do. I take no responsibility if you bork your phone, this worked for me but may no for you and thats your own choice to make, but if youre flashing you probably already know that. I have only tried this mod on Infused 2, S7, and I do not know what it will do to any other ROMs. I'm not a dev and am using projects like this to learn so your patience is appreciated.

Short instructions as I forgot to include them originally.
The green icons packages are flashable through CWM. (BACKUP FIRST THEN FLASH)

The bootanimation.zip you can just copy and place in your /system/media folder or your /data/local folder and rename it to just bootanimation.zip. You must make sure there is a bootanimation in only ONE of those folders though or it may default to either a blank screen or still play the original bootanimation. Most ROMs for the Infuse seem to use the/system/media folder for the "stock"location but so long as there is only one bootannimation on your phone either should work for any ROM that will work on our phones. There is no need to extract the files if you place it in the folders this way just leave it as a .zip and Droid will know what to do with it.

Contents:
Modified framework-res.apk - to add icons and colors
Modified SystemUI.apk - More fonts and colors
Modified bootscreen.zip - to add Infused based boot animation.
Various tweaks and mods to alter window/pop up properties to add overscroll (droid green) and animate windows with a fly in effect.

EDIT: I noticed that some roms like Dlev already have a lot of window effects and very specific icon controls (as Dlev does beautifully) this mod can cause issues with loading past the initial icon load after your fist unlock. I would be very careful if you use this on any ROMs that already have a lot of screen transition effects as this could result in bad joojoo. Use it at your own risk but hey, isn't that what Nandroid backups are for? DO THEM BEFORE YOU EVER FLASH ANYTHING NEW TO YOUR PHONE. EVER.

EDIT: 10/16 Added Infused 2 specific boot at request. Corrected some errors in the reported available memory.
EDIT: 10/21 Added Dlev specific boot and a Dlev friendly flash of my preferred Dial Battery and some more green icons. This also alters the notifications drop down to replace the green bottom bar with a stock GB bar (I like green but it looked a little off to me so I changed it). I also darkened the overscroll bounce a bit to make the colors match a bit more evenly. Any greens I could easily get at are now HEX A4C639 which is supposedly the stock droid color "Android green" for any who care.

To an extent I thought the same thing I like it because its very customizable and has a huge community. I'm liking it for now I just can't wait for the official cm7


Holy MIUI Batman!

Yeah I did a CM7 build but I hate the Bluetooth issues so I keep going back to Infused during the workday and playing with other Roms while we wait for GB to drop. Might try MIUI to play with a bit, but it still has the Bluetooth issues being a CM based rom so can't daily drive it either.

Can you do a boot animation for infused gingerbread, internal SD is 16gb, and system memory is 2gb. And have it infuse 4g. Would be great to have one.

The project I'm consulting on is in its last month of a 12 month contract so my schedule is a bit crazy but I'll see if I can do something. If nothing else I'm taking december off...... But I wouldnt want to wait that long if it were me so will try to have something done this week.

Edit: Insomnia rampant tonight so I just did an Infused 2 specific one, enjoy!

Hey Big, I've been doing a lot of 12 hour days but tomorrow I am going to try and make a Dlev specific one (as it's what I've been running for a few weeks now as my DD) Any requests for a particular kernel to be listed?

It has Bedwa's Infusion GB 1.1 kernel in it, but people tend to swap out to Community or Entropy's DailyDriver sometimes. But since it already comes with Bedwa's kernal, let's do that one.:D

i LOVE this boot animation. the only problem is i constantly want to reboot. :D this worked fine using Super Manager to place it in the media folder. Running GSInfuse 1.1.6. I did have to fix permissions, they were off. but worked first try!

    I've been running on Infusion 1.1 as well but I figured I'd ask if you had any preferences, file posted above now.
