    OK, found out how to get to the folder. Now how to replace the bootanimation.zip which has -r- permissions.

    Is there a easy way through the windows command prompt?

    I got it...I had to dust off my Unix skills. I installed "Android Terminal Emulator". I copied the new "bootanimation.zip" file to my sdcard. I then ran these commands.

    su
    mount -o remount,rw /system
    cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /system/media/
    chmod 644 /system/media/bootanimation.zip
    reboot

    I can't take credit for this, Google is my friend.

    I have found the easiest way is to push them with a file manager. My boot animation is located in system/media. been changing them every couple of days.

    So I decided to give this a try today. I made a animation in800x800 saved it as a PNG sequence, created the bootanimation.zip file, used the script above to replace my file with the existing file in system/media.
    When it reboits it's just blank. The file is there and hopefully in the correct format but it does not play. Could it be something in the desc,txt file. Does the anim need to be stored in the two folders part0 and part1.

    Make sure you select "store" for the compression method

    Ok I was able to upload a new boot animation fine, now my question is, how do I get it to play correctly in landscape, short of rotating the images 90 degrees, this will then make portrait incorrect? I'd much rather have it in landscape mode as that's how I use it 99 percent of the time.

    Easy answer is to unzip the file, rotate the images, and rezip the file.

    Ok heres the desc.txt file. I understand the first line but can someone explain the other two lines? When mine plays it plays the part0 then the part1 but then it plays a few frames from the tail end of part0.

    800 800 24
    p 1 0 part0
    p 0 0 part1

    The basic structure of the bootanimation.zip file is as follows:

    bootanimation.zip - desc.txt - part0 - part1

    part0 and part1 are directories that contain a series of images for example:

    part0 - boot_001.png - boot_002.png - boot_003.png - boot_004.png - boot_005.png

    and:

    part1 - boot_006.png - boot_007.png - boot_008.png - boot_009.png - boot_010.png - boot_011.png - boot_012.png - boot_013.png - boot_014.png - boot_015.png - boot_016.png - boot_017.png - boot_018.png - boot_019.png - boot_020.png

    These images form the “part0” and “part1” animations that are combined as outlined in the “desc.txt” file to form the overall startup animation. The images are ordered by number and run in sequence.

    The “desc.txt” file outlines how the animation progresses and a sample is as follows:

    800 800 24
    p 1 0 part0
    p 0 0 part1

    where:

    “800” is the width of the animation “800” is the height of the animation “24” is the desired fps of the animation

    “p” defines a first animation part “1” how many times this animation part loops (in this case - once) “0” defines a pause after this part is played (max 10, “0” is for no pause at all) “part0” is the folder name where the animation images are for the first animation part

    “p” defines a second animation part “0” defines that it loops forever (until android starts) “0” defines a pause “part1” is the folder for the second animation part.

    Hope that helps.
