A boot animation is a series of images (frames) in a folders (parts). There is a text file (desc.txt) that defines the parts, the frame rate, and how many times it loops. A desc.txt looks like this: 480 427 30 p 1 0 part0 p 0 10 part1 The first like is the height and width, then the number of frames per second the next 2 lines define the parts that will ...

The worst case scenario you can encounter while changing Brand logo is not have any logo or battery charging indicator (when switched off and charging). Yes it is possible to change the company logo. If you have ever flashed a custom ROM and still have the update.zip file lying around, sometimes (after extraction) you will find a logo.bin (its a raw Binary ...

I had a similar problem on CyanogenMod and it turned out to be broken permissions. I tried the following which worked in the shell only for whatever reason. You need to be rooted and have ADB installed. The following commands mount the system partition for reading and writing, copy stock bootanimation zip (change location, or skip), copy custom bootanimation ...

Create an animation script (text) file as desc.txt with the following content: 240 320 24 p 1 0 part0 Explanation: In first line 240 320 24, 240 320 is the device's resolution and 24 is the frames per second. Higher the number, faster the animation. In second line p 1 0 part0, p is a code to tell it to look at new commands, 1 is the number of times ...

This is a crash and restart of the android runtime, without a crash and reboot of the underlying linux operating system kernel. The uptime refers to the underlying linux, so it is maintained across the framework restart. The difference between a framework crash and restart vs. a kernel crash and reboot is not very apparent to the end user, since there's ...

They don't have to change the ROM on every phone by hand. They have a relationship with the phone's manufacturer, so the carrier's customized ROM gets installed on the phones at the factory. This customized ROM might include their boot animation, bloatware, settings (e.g. APNs) for their network. These phones often also have slightly modified hardware: the ...

I have a very different take on this matter than @sbrm1. Note a few things first and then decide whether doing this is worth it: The boot logo is a actually a raw binary image, constrained by size, not format. The format of the bootloader splash screen, as it is known, varies for even models of the same device (case in point, Exynos and Qualcomm Samsung ...

These carrier specific modifications are committed to the source code and are automatically included during the build process through the buildsystem to compile the source code and resources into a factory image (ROM as flashable ZIP-file or whatever format is used for distribution) or software update. HTC relased an infographic a few years ago illustrating ...

BootAnimation doesn't affect boot time. It's just a series of pictures shown in sequence to you, while your phone is ready to give you the GUI. There is no one certain recipe to make your phone boot twice as fast. Check this and this for possible solutions, to make your phone boot up faster

On some phones it can take very long, even to half an hour, so try to wait a little more. If that does not help you should try to do a factory reset and wipe /cache & /dalvik partition (from Recovery, if you have access to it). Usually this procedure would solve the issue: stuck on boot animation/reboot loops.

You can delete /system/media/bootanimation.zip and the second boot animation would be gone. You need to root your phone to do that though. Also, this would make your home screen appear faster, but not fully functional until it competes boot. Changing or removing the first boot splash is trickier, it requires recompiling the kernel with a blank boot splash ...

This may not be exactly what you are seeing, but I have seen situations where the "home"/launcher app will be garbage collected. The next time the phone returns to the home screen, it shows a loading screen as it restarts the launcher app. Depending on the model of phone, ROM, and launcher you use, this initialization screen may be different, and it may ...

You need root and a root explorer like ES File Explorer. Go to system/media/ and delete or rename the file bootani.qmg if you want to get rid of the Android animation. The vendor one should be named like samsungani.qmg or htcani.qmg.

Provided you're rooted and your ROM supports changing the boot animation, there are a number of apps in the Play Store. Here's one - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jrummy.apps.boot.animations

OK: After some more reading, it looks like ClockWorkMod did not back up the /cust partition ie: /proc/mtdblock7 in which the vodafone logo and boot animation was stored. When I flashed my device with a generic Stock ROM that overwrote the /cust partition permanently. When I flashed my recovery.img, it only restored the recovery partition (which was the CWM ...

Looks like this was a corrupt zip problem.. from linux zip tool you must be using the -0 switch to 'store'.
