Samsung Fascinate running CyanogenMod 10.1-20130723-Nightly.

I made a custom boot animation that works, but it plays once and does not loop. The desc.txt file has the proper formatting to loop, folder structure and zip method. I have the bootanimation.zip in two locations on the device memory: /system/media and /data/local

I have matched the permissions to the other files on both locations, however that still hasn't fixed it. Why is not looping like it's supposed to? When I restore the CyanogenMod animation it plays just fine.

UPDATE: Downloading boot animations from the XDA Forum worked just fine. I tried three. Mine are still refusing to work.


Create an animation script (text) file as desc.txt with the following content:

240 320 24  
p 1 0 part0


  1. 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.
  2. 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 the boot animation will play (0 means infinite), 0 is a code to tell it to pause. 0 means no pause, 10 means pause for 10 seconds - repeating or moving on to next line. part0 is the foler in which your animation images are contained.

Could you please check whether fourth parameter is 0? If not set it to 0 for infinite loop.

  • I have no part 1. I just have a simple animation that loops and needs to be repeated. This is what my txt file looks like: 480 480 24 p 0 0 part0 – cbabb Jul 12 '13 at 9:06
  • try to give looping count to 5 or 6 instead of 0. Please let me know the result – Akhil Jul 12 '13 at 10:28
  • Didn't display at all. I did both power off and reboot. – cbabb Jul 12 '13 at 15:14
  • I created a part zero and one. Part zero fades in and part 1 is supposed to loop. It doesn't. Part zero fades and stops. No animation. – cbabb Jul 13 '13 at 2:31

I was able to figure this out after troubleshooting.

I partitioned out my HDD and installed Ubuntu 13.04. Once completed I installed Android Tools via terminal sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb

I recreated the entire boot animation using Gimp and 7Zip and pushed it back to the device adb push /system/media/bootanimation.zip. It worked. For what ever reason creating it in Windows was not working.
