**REQUIRES ROOT** so normal disclaimer about blowing up, melting, freezing, breaking, cracking, generally making annoying, your phone. Don't bother if you don't have root.

Randomizes the boot animation used. just put all your boot animations in /sdcard/BootAnimations (don't worry about renaming them, as long as they end in '.zip' you'll be fine) and run the app. It runs on startup so every boot gives you a different animation. Please let me know what you think, what features are needed and what should be removed. Send all feedback to [email protected] Yes, that is my real email address.

UPDATE(1/15):
I will no longer post copies of the app to the thread. If you are looking for the most up to date versions. Check it out in the Market.

This will also be my last update on this thread. I will, however, continue to check back regularly for people looking for help on this thread. Thanks for the feedback and ideas.

UPDATE(1/3 6:38pm):
Again, please download from Market to keep app updated faster

Version 1.4 (APK updated)
-Option to choose only a specific animation

UPDATE (1/3 7:17am):
Please download from Market to keep app updated faster. Thanks.

Version 1.3 (APK updated)
-Bug fix where animation was changed twice
-added options that keep on ROM flash:
+backup boot animation that doesn't exist yet
+turn off notification
+(Coming soon/tomorrow) use a specific animation only
+(Coming later/maybe tomorrow) set a queue/cycle of animations

well, if there is just one boot animation in the folder, it will just choose that one every time. There are no settings to save. I'll look into the previewing.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by
It would be nice to be able to have more than one
If you have multiple zips in the folder it will choose one randomly so it does support multiple, that's why it's a shuffler

Also, I'll work on setting one or a specified cycle for the next release. Thanks for your feedback

I believe I've addressed the main feature requests with the exception of preview (which will take a HUGE amount of work) and the queue. I'll work on including the queue as soon as possible.

I do not know as I don't own a phone like that. If you could try it and let me know, that would be excellent.

On a side note, I'm going to include sound copying in the next update, though that might not be till the weekend as I do have a life. Any other suggestions guys?

hmmm, does it say "Boot Animation Shuffle has been granted superuser permissions" when you run it? If not, could you check in the Superuser app to make sure that it in fact allowed. I've had times when an app suddenly stops working and somehow it had been denied at some point

I have not abandoned this project in any way. I just had a busy weekend. This is my first app so it takes a while to implement any new feature. I'm working on adding the cycle now.

I don't know what you meant by compliant, but I run it on my galaxy nexus so... it runs fine on it

Yay, I love feedback like that GeekMcLeod. Responses like that are why I made the app and released it free.

I've made an update, fixing some problems where animations weren't shuffling at all and adding an option to disable the app completely if you don't want it anymore but want to keep the app. I pushed it to the Market to the Donate version. I'll push it to the non-donate in a bit. don't know how long to give donators early. I would have included the cycle, but I just can't seem to get it to work properly. Anyone know how to set the checkboxes in a ListView in multiple_mode manually?

Glad you all are enjoying my app
