This is a guide which tells you how to make a your very own bootanimation and install a bootanimation on your device.
plz let me know if you made a bootanimation using this method so that every bootanimation made using this method can be posted here
#This guide assumes that you are windows user and have - 1- 7 zip or winrar installed 2- a image editing software (for ex-photoshop) #
|Bootanimation basically is a collection of .png pictures that are projected on the screen one after the other quickly so that it looks like a animation , stored in a zip file|
1-you need a bootanimation.zip file [you can find them on google]
now if you have downloaded the bootanimation.zip file ,open it up
2- as you can see in the picture you find some folders in it named
"part0" "part1" "part2"
folders like part0;part1,etc. STORE .png pictures of bootnaimation
the desc.txt file contains all the necessary info to run bootanimation like resolution fps ,etc
As you can see in the image #1-it is the resolution of the bootanimation(you should basically use your device's resolution for ex - in the pic it is 320X480) #2-it is the fps(frames per second) of your bootanimation [higher the no. faster will your bootanimation play a standard fps should be 30] #3-these are the folders which contain images for your bootanimation #4-it is a pointer to tell it to look at new commands #5-specifies the no. of times this section of bootanimation will play ( 0 means infinite) #6-defines pause in seconds before repeating or moving on next line (o means no pause 10 means 10 sec pause)
Fire it up el captain !!
we'll start making a bootanimation from scratch from here
#1-create a folder anywhere put in desktop for ease,let's call it
#4-Give a black background to the image and take a image you wan't to fade in . paste it as a new layer and set the layer to 0% opacity
so now you can only see a black background.
#5-now save the image in your
#7-repeat step 5 every time until you reach 100%.and each time save it as image003-image004 etc. in part0 folder
#8-open notepad and type this --
320 480 30 p 1 0 part0
change the 320 480 with the resolution you are using
#10- compress it using your archive manager say 7zip ;winrar,etc.
imp: SET COMPRESSION METHOD TO STORE
or else bootanimation WON'T work

To install your bootanimation just use root explorer to put it in system/media folder
if using htc stock rom put it in system/customize/resources folder (make sure to rename it the bootanimation.zip to htc_bootup.zip )
