Customize your boot animation with ease with this wonderful app for rooted Android devices
This is definitely an app that should receive some notice from the community. Boot Animation Installer, by davidjr621, could very well be the best thing since the invention of sliced bread. Everyone loves customization, especially when it doesn’t involve much effort or know-how. There have been a few other attempts at apps like this one, but to my knowledge and from my experiences, this one takes the cake; it does exactly what it advertises, and there’s a full list of boot animations included and ready for the taking.
Hit the break for more info and a blurry video.
As noted in the title, you’re going to need root before this will work on your device. The device needs to overwrite your current boot animation, and the only way you can do this is by having root permissions. For those who haven’t yet rooted their device and would like to do so, I would STRONGLY suggest taking a look over in the XDA-Forums for your device. There’s likely to be a ton of info for you, and I can guarantee there’s a ton of awesome folks that will be willing to help, should you run into any issues.
Once you’ve gained root, this app is a pretty straight-forward. You browse through the ginormous list of included animations and find the one you want. The first time you run the app, SuperUser will pop up asking you to allow the app, hit OK. Once you’ve done that you’re pretty much good to go. The install process should only take a quick second and then you can reboot to see the results. It’s worked flawlessly for me so far, and I’ve tested at least 10 of the available animations.
For a buck, this is one of the best ways to customize your phone and make it stand out from the crowd. Impress your friends, or just be content knowing that your phone is cooler than theirs; either way, give this one a try!
Check out my quick video below to see how easy this is. (I appologize in advance, it’s a little blurry, but you can still clearly see that this is a quite simple process.
Thanks for the heads up on this one, Bryce!
