Here's 2 modified "/system/bin/bootanimation" files that points to a bootanimation.zip file instead of bootsamsung.qmg files.

One for 4.3 based roms, and one for 4.4.2,

Check it out, there is a readme inside the zip file.

This is NOT a flashable file, because not everyone is using custom recoverys on there stock roms. Use a root explorer to change the files

DO NOT FLASH, AND USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

As always Enjoy!

NOTICE: There seems to be a 25% chance this will not work for some people (mostly 4.3 roms) If this doesn't work for you troubleshoot as follows:
1. Did you put a good bootanimation.zip in /system/media/?
2. Did you setup the /system/bin/bootanimation file's permissions properly? (permissions should be rwxr-xr-x)
3. Did you use the right file for your rom?

If after checking these it doesn't work please pm me with your model and rom info, Thanks

actually.. these wont work currently due to it flashing the binary that i had in there for ages which will overwite yours. So I wouldn't recommend flashing mine yet. You can copy the zip over thoguh from inside the flashable file

Im going to pull some of yours later and post just the zips.

Tried it more than once on 4.4.2 stock deodex and no go. Now I have no animation. I have the bootanimation.zip in system/media, right permissions. And I manually copied the bootanimation file to system/bin, same permissions as prior file.

Since deodexed roms boot up differently I can't guarantee this will work with it. It was intended Samsung based "odex" roms. Sorry.

If I do find one that works with Deodex roms I'll let you know.

On Infamous 2.5, 4.4.2 and the bin file gives me a blank boot screen also. I have tried a few different bootanimation.zips in system/media and I get the same results every time.

This is intended really only for stock room, but could work for others based in it. Make sure you check your permissions.

Getting the same result as other. Just a black screen. Using the stock 4.4.2 rom.
How do I get my stock animation back? Tried renaming the files and it didn't work.
