When you turn on your Android Incredible phone, the
manufacturer logo appears, followed by the boot
animation. This is a short graphical display that serves
no particular function, except to let you know that the
phone is booting up and will be operating shortly. By
adding a few files to your Android phone in a specific
way, you can customize the boot animation to display
anything you wish.

Step 1
Connect your phone to your computer, and browse to its
media folder, usually located in the “yourphone/system/
media” folder. Locate the file “bootanimation.zip” then
copy it to two locations in your computer's hard drive --
the first will be a backup copy in case anything goes
wrong, and the second you will edit to make your own
animation. Extract the second file to your computer and
open it.
Step 2
Delete all folders apart from “part0.” The folder should
now contain only a folder called “part0,” and a text
file called “desc.txt.”

Step 3
Open “part0.” Delete all the files in here, then copy the
image files that you want to make up your animation
into this folder. Each image will represent a frame of
your animation and must be in PNG format.
Step 4
Rename all of the image files numerically, in the
sequence you want them displayed. For example, you
could label the first frame of the animation
“00001.png,” the second “00002.png,” and then continue
this pattern until all files have been labeled.
Step 5
Go back to the “bootanimation” folder and open
“desc.txt.” The first line contains three figures. Ignore
the first two -- these are the screen resolution of your
phone and should not be changed. The third number is
the frame rate -- change this to the number of frames
you want your animation to display per second. Higher
frame-rates create smoother animations, but take longer
to produce. Then change the second line to the

Save the file when you're done.
Step 6
Compress the “bootanimation” folder back into zip
format. To do this in Mac OS X, right-click, then select
“Create Archive.” In Windows 7, right-click, then select
“Send to” followed by “Compressed (zipped) folder.” The
result will be a file called “bootanimation.zip.”
Step 7
Copy this file back to your phone's media folder. If you
are asked if you want to overwrite the existing file,
choose “Yes.” Your phone will display your new
animation when you next power it on.
