Download: DROID X Boot Animation

More Droid X goodies!  (Multi-touch keyboard and Wallpapers.)   This time, one of our readers pointed out the new boot animation from the Droid X system dump that’s floating around and gave some quick instructions on how anyone (both rooted and non-rooted) can install it.  Check out the quick video of it in action and then follow up with the instructions.  I love system dumps.

Oh, and yes, this should work on both the Motorola Droid and Droid Incredible.

Video action…

Download: bootanimation.zip (alt link)

Instructions…

*Note 1* – Need to have the Android SDK installed.  Instructions here.

*Note 2* – If you are rooted, you can just follow these instructions.

1.  Open up your Android SDK folder
2.  Download the bootanimation.zip above to your PC and drop it in your SDK\tools folder.
3.  In your SDK tools folder, hold SHIFT and right click in a blank area.
4.  Select “Open command window here.”
5.  Type the following command:

adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local

6.  Once it finishes, reboot your phone and watch the new boot animation in action!

Let me know if you run into issues on any device.

Cheers droiddev!  Via comment.

      Can anyone explain how to do this non-rooted? I attempted on an EVO shift and all the files transferred over to the phone but the reboot is still the same. Does sdk need to be installed on the phone too? Anything will help

    this is still today the best startup animation IMHO… I use it on my D1

  • Jrock081405

    Im having a problem with this. I have done all of the steps but after the classic M symbol comes on after i reboot it, it is just a blank black screen until it goes to the droid main screen. I am using a droid x with froyo with latest updates, SDK and ADB both installed. Maybe i should break down and buy the root explorer. please help me out. Im new at this and am very interested in getting into it. thanks in advance.

  • Red Ed

    I am a newbie to rooting, I am not a tech pro, but feel like I am very capable of following directions and understand most things. Can somebody lead me down the road to root my device. I have downloaded the Android SPK and updated what needs to be updated, but just need a little direction to work with the device.

  • Guitarmann92

    i've done everything, but it's not working at all on my incredible

    • Guitarmann92

      also, do you have to have android sdk installed on your phone for this to work as well? or just the computer?

  • Jrosario101

    Did the above by Kellex and skfridls. In “Terminal” (Mac) after typing in the commands. It showed that the boot animation pushed. However, when I rebooted my Incredible…nothing happened. Just the stock boot animation. I'm NOT rooted but, I have Android SDK installed. I tried both methods posted by both members. Any suggestions? I have “Astro File Manager” on my SD card. The boot animation shows in there but I can't seem to get it to work.

    • NMMI89

      “rebooted” by turning phone off and back on while hooked to my Mac…wrong?

      • NMMI89

        Now there is no boot animation whatsoever. It goes from “HTC Incredible” to a blank, Black screen then the homepage loads.

    Works perfect with non-rooted HTC Desire! Thank you!

  • http://twitter.com/p_leader Power Leader

    Worked like a charm on my Motorola Milestone (euro Droid). Very COOL!! Thanks

  • tom8ball

    Can anyone help me. I am new to the SDK stuff. When I try to push animation in the new command window, I get an error stating that the device cannot be found. I am in debugging mode on my droid, the triangle with the exclamation point is on my display. Sorry I am a novice, but I am trying… Basically how do I get the connection between the droid and the PC I guess is what I really need to know

    • Schwartzy_d

      I also need help with this problem, can anyone help?

  • http://www.facebook.com/christopherthomasgordon Chris Gordon

    Worked perfectly and looks awesome!

    Now, I will just patiently wait for a version of this boot animation with sound… Then it would be perfect.

  • Derick

    i know this is a bit off topic, but has anyone tried the new enrEVOked root tool for the incredible? I have it downloaded, but I'm a little nervous to try it until i get some real feedback on if it works and if it can be downgraded back to stock build… you can find it at

    As soon as the version with sound comes out I plan on doing this on my non-rooted DROID. However, is there a way to save the original one or have it stored away somewhere if I want to put it back on at a later date?
