There are two logos on my android device(s) showing while loading device.

How to remove them showing?

  • First one is general android logo
  • Second one is vendor specific.

I need either of them to be disabled, without going to change them.

There has to be some option for this.

  • It would be important to know what device and ROM you are on. Certain ROMs have it built-in natively to disable boot animations. – HasH_BrowN Dec 17 '14 at 13:48

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.

  • What about the carrier's animation? Where is that located? – Andrei V Jan 13 '15 at 12:00
  • Mine was named bootanimation.zip at system/media. It was a zip file with folders containing jpg files to render in sequence. Also in the zip file was a text file saying how to process. – subjectivist Feb 11 '18 at 0:31

You can't change or remove them. Only way to do it is by installing custom ROM; which will inturn invalidate any warranty you have on the phone.

    You don't need a custom ROM in order to change or remove the boot animation. – Alex Dumitru May 23 '13 at 17:55
