Download: Nexus Prime Boot Animation

YouTube Preview Image

The boot animation from the Nexus Prime aka Galaxy Nexus that was teased to us earlier in the week is now available for everyone to play with.  The instructions we have are for flashing in Clockwork Recovery, but if you aren’t rooted, you will have to do it the old fashioned way by extracting and moving the bootanimation.zip into /data/local or wherever your particular phone pulls media from.

Sexy, isn’t it?  

Download:  Nexus_Prime_Boot.zip


1.  Download the file from above an drop it on your SD card.
2.  Reboot your phone into recovery.
3.  Choose “install zip from sd card.”
4.  “Choose zip from sd card.”
5.  Select the file you downloaded from above.
6.  Once it finishes running choose “Go Back” and then reboot!

    This isnt the Nexus Animation. THIS is it:


  • Blehhhh

    I booted all 5 roms from boot manager and they booted faster than that! lol

  • Dustin carney

    I flashed in clockwork and i flashed used boot animation utility and neither of those ways worked, i just get a black sreen while it boots up….

    This violates the demo “ten second rule” five times over. You will love it even more when you’re almost out of battery and need to send a text or email, power up, and run out of charge before the whole minute is through.

    Would this work on a T-mobile HTC Sensation (rooted)?

    Did not work for me on the Thunderbolt.

  • not working on evo running synergy

  • I just tweaked the desc.txt file and applied this to my HTC EVO and guess what? After the bootanimation, it magically transformed my phone into a Nexus Prime! Woot! …. Now how to I get LTE working?  (j/k)

  • Matthew Harmon

    How can I uninstall the boot animation on my DX?  There is nothing in my systemmedia folder?  Any suggestions?

    I love it on my OG Droid!

  • Barlog

    Could someone send me a link or explain how to do this on an unrooted Droid?

  • Barlog

    WOW! …I just finished reading this whole thread, and I’m now sitting next to 3 leprechaun’s, a unicorn just walked up and is asking me if I’ve seen how slow that boot animation took to load, and I just got socked in the face by an Oompa Loompa that just ran by! This is the most craziest, funniest, bizarre thread I’ve ever read on DL …..or maybe it’s just all those pills I took …. 😉 …:-D I don’t know what I’d do without Droidlife you all rock! 🙂

  • Polecats03

    only took 3 hours to turn on…

    This isn’t the nexus prime guys…relax..lol

    Awesome, been waiting for this. Those whining about boot-time: Continue justifying your decision to skip over this awesome phone, enjoy your Nexus in a month when it has the same exact internals that I’ve been enjoying since September. 

    • Glock

      EXCEPT it doesn’t have the exact same internals…and I’ll enjoy ICS while you stay on GB for FOREVER…oh and when the next iteration comes out, I’ll enjoy that while you’re STILL on GB…

        4430 and 1GB DDR2 RAM? Sounds the same to me.

        The Bionic was rooted by day one, had roms by the first week and is well on the way to being unlocked (whether it’s by Devs or Motorola itself). Minus the screen (and Samsung’s meh build quality), the Bionic is largely the same as the Prime, except I’ve had mine to play with since September. 🙂

    I dont really like it that much :/

    Don’t you think its sad that it takes a minute and a half to boot up?

  • Mneighbo

    Looks decent on the Bionic. Hmmmmm

  • Lanza_david

    THIS IS A MOTOROLA PHONE!  how can it be the prime?

    Has anybody noticed this?

    • Lanza_david

      Well… it is obviously a Bionic…. so it is supposed to be the prime bootup animation on a bionic? 

      • LionStone

        Ding! Ding! 🙂

    • Anonymous

      because if you take the time to check out the source that it came from you would see they say it is loaded on his bionic.
