Well, just what the title says, I guess.. The leaked Ice Cream Sandwich bootanimation from the Nexus Prime, I just made up a flashable zip, so you don't have to mess around with a file explorer, or the changing permissions by hand nonsense.
(Flashes normally thru clockwork,no wipe needed.)
Hope y'all like it, as a simple script like that takes me right about to the limit of my abilities. (lol)
Anyhow, here you go:

And here's a vid of it running on some other guy's device (I think the same guy who actually leaked it) ... http://goo.gl/6oxnD

UPDATE: And finally, Here's a version for those of you who are running the stock, rooted kernel:

Does not work on stock deodex plus kernal...flashed thru cwm 5.0

I'm on Midnight, and it works fine here..
(It's also deodexed, but if your rom is stock, then perhaps I just wasn't aware where the 'stock' Bootanimation was located and what it is named..
This zip basically flashes a new file named "bootanimation.zip" to the system/media/ folder, overwriting the one that's already there, with the correct permissions. I assumed that the stock boot animation was in the same spot.. Apparently it isn't, but if you or someone else could actually take a look with a file explorer, I'd be happy to make one up for "Stock" location as well. (In the meantime, if you don't wanna wait, just extract my zip^, and replace it "by hand".
Sorry about that..

For those that it is not working for ...It needs a kernel with bootanimation.zip support.

Pretty cool boot animation. As far as where the stock boot animation is, it is locked under /system/media. You can get to this by using the root explorer. You can also use the stock file viewer, but root explorer allow you to read and write. Hope this helps.

Ok for those having issues I flashed zedomax v1 kernal with boot ani support from the development section.....as soon as I flashed that the phone booted with the prime ani hope this helps for those who flashed the acs deodex stock rom. I am still stock with root and busybox.

Sweet job porting this over...works well.

Does anybody else think it looks kinda "low-res"? The bootanimation that comes with starburst is so crisp and cool...like og epic's evolved...I think if this one looked better quality It'd be the bomb though

I agree. this Doesnt look high def. looks grainy and bad quality. wish it was HD.

Imma search the web for some better png.'s, or maybe even pull these out and sharpen/enhance each one in photoshop, cause I hafta agree.
I'll update the OP if I manage to work it out. Thanks for the input.

    You need a kernel that's bootanimation compatible. Otherwise, the .qmg files in system/media will keep it from playing.

    Look four posts back.
    I made one, I just need someone to try it out.
