Download: Rule the Air Droid Life Boot Animation

One of our most righteous members and IRC Channel OPs Mr. Darkwing Duck, has graced us with this more than awesome Rule the Air Droid-Life boot animation. It’s extremely slick and only takes a couple minutes to install. (I know this is what I’ll be using for as long as I have my Droid!) We can’t thank everyone enough who comes up with all this custom stuff for us; it really is a super special (and may I say cult like) following we have here! Thanks everyone for making Droid-Life the place to be!
