Hi people,

first, I don't speak english very well.

I will show you how to change the bootanimation on froyo 2.2 or gingerbread 2.3.X.

What you need?

  • Root
  • Stock ROM
  • Root Explorer


bootanimation.zip is the set of several images that formed a "video" at start of your device.
bootanimation.zip: within this file can contain two folders:
part0 (first part of the animation)
part1 (second part of the animation)
Note: Some have only the folder bootanimation part0
And a text file called:
"Desc"
Within this file there are some parameters:

320 480 15 p p 1 0 0 0 part0 part1
Subtitles:
Red: Size of the picture, regardless of the size that it is within the file "bootanimation.zip" the size of it on the screen of your device will be determined in the field, with 320 width and 480 height. In Galaxy Mini you will use 240x320.
Green: 15 is the time in which images appear, the faster that number, the faster the "video" boot.
Blue: It means how many times the animation will appear in the folder, ie, p 1 0 part0, the animation of a folder will appear as 0.
Purple: The same thing the Blue, but in a folder, ie, the end of the animation.


3 - Understand how to create a bootanimation.zip

1 - you have the image in jpg or png named as you want as long as the end of each name finds the numbers in sequence. EX: 000, 001, 002, 003 ...
2 - Compress images using WinRAR like this:

compct

Filename: bootanimation.zip
File Format: ZIP
Method of storage: Store


4 - Okay, now having bootanimation.zip, copy to SD;
5 - Open Root Explorer and navigate to the directory "system / bin
6 - Look for the "samsungani" or "samsungloop", press and hold over the file, and select "MOVE";
7 - Browse to the folder "sdcard" and tap "PASTE"

Warning: If you have problems with
"Warning: can not've moved because the file system is read-only"
Press the right corner of Root Explorer
"Mount R / W" to be "Mount R / O!


8 - Back to the folder "system / bin" and browse to the "bootanimation"; - Navigate to the folder "sdcard" and tap "PASTE"
9 - Rename the file "bootanimation" to "samsungani" or "samsungloop" (depending on the file that you moved to SD in step 6)
10 - Now navigate to the "sdcard" and copy the bootanimation.zip;
11 - Navigate to the folder "system / media" and paste the bootanimation.zip here.
12 - rename the 2 files with extension. "MGQ" (removing the "g" at the end);

Reboot and enjoy! :D


I hope you like it! ;)

If you are rooted then ROM toolbox would work fine

I used 'Bootanimation changer' or something like that from ROM toolbox but it didn't work for my mini?!
