It's already been made! Now which bootanimation thread was that...?

KillaThrilla! (http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-themes/14140-bootanimations-killathrillas-bootanimation-gallery-request-thread-17.html) That's it!

I could swear it was on KillaThrilla's thread linked above your post. Look through all of the pages and see if you can find it. I just looked at 5 pages with no luck. Also try to dig up Gorgorath"s bootanimation thread. You may find it in one of his links. It is a pretty sweet animation.

Name the file bootanimation.zip and place it in system/media and rename the other one bootanimation.zip.bak
I believe that is right.

Pretty good. bootanimations are either in /system/media or /data/local (which takes precedence). Just make sure to rename as BHuber said, and use whatever file explorer you use to place it in one of the two folders. I prefer /data/local, cause if you ever end up doing an advanced restore of data (I do fairly regularly), having it in /data/local replaces it with the restore

shameless plug: Yet another bootanimation thread (http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-hacks/30894-yet-another-bootanimation-thread.html)

Okay I know you said you can place it in data/local but when I go into data I have an empty file. Do I have to create it? Sorry for thr noobish question just trying to learn more.

What file explorer are you using? You probably need to go into settings and enable "show Hidden files" and or show system files

I'm using astro (could that be my ptoblem since its not a root explorer?) and I don't see any options like that.

ya, try super manager or es file explorer, both free in the market (although someone couldn't get es working before, but I use it)

Yeah I thought that'd be the problem
Thank you

You need to use Root Explorer or the ES file manager to access the data folder. It shows blank in Astro. I'm not sure of other managers tho.

edit- duh, missed the last 2 posts

Yes, use root tools from the market. It had helped me change my boot animation and edit my pull down text
