Any clue as to how we can change bootanimation on new gingerbread TW rom (mesmerize)? I have attempted removing the .zip in /system/media and replacing with the new animation. But after I do so, the new file reverts back to the original bootanimation.zip

Same outcome... Did realize that removing the bootsamsung.qmg removes the original amimation.

Any idea if a .qmg could be written from the .zip?

A custom kernel is required to enable custom boot animations.

i got it just use the samsungani from that post, keeping your bootanimation and put the file in "/system/media/" as "sanim.zip", also open "samsungani" and change the sleep to 10

has anyone else tested this? If so we can hopefully see some custom boot anims before we get a working kernel. Please let the folks in teamheinz know!

i have been trying this out on my mesmerize and am getting frustrated. Can you lay out the steps and files you used/renamed so I can finally get this. It is driving me nuts. thanks

edit, got something to work so far. I did not have things set to executable as described. Gott play with it a little more

With the new voodoo kernel we should be able to use bootanimation.zips within /system/media like we did with 2.2 roms, I will investigate in the morning :)

'tis true my friend! Just confirmed it!

Edit: sorry, this did not work. I didn't properly remove the samsungani file.
