Ok lol. I have been having so many problems lol. I made system writeable, renamed this bootanimation.zip, fixed permissions, and removed bootanimation.zip from /system/media and replaced it with this one. Still not working. What am I missing?

Not a CWM flashable zip. Go to /system/media, rename "bootanimation.zip" to "bootanimation.zip.old", push nexus7.zip to system/media, rename to "bootanimation.zip", set permissions to rw-r--r--.

Works... triiiipppyyy, haha. Liking this a bit more than CM9's default... Idk. Just really not a fan of their new mascot.

Ha, their new mascot is a bit interesting. I like this nexus7 boot a lot, but i wish the colors were a bit brighter. I might edit it some and see what i can do with it.

    I'll be home in about 30 minutes. I'll flash the sgs3 Rom and figure that out for you.

    Could somebody check out the flashable zip in my first post for me please? As I said, it is not working. I need help getting it to work.

    I'm totally new to scripting, but I'm pretty sure you need to include the "xbin/busybox" within the zip file.
