Android Scribble Updated
Back on February, XDA News Writer ElCondor wrote about the first release of these animations for your Android device boot screen. Now, XDA member GLa’DOS updated to Scrible version 2.0 with many more animation screens and added more resolutions to the supported list: WQVGA, QVGA and VGA, so now Nexus One will be able to use it too.
Be sure to back up your actual screen before proceeding and please read all the instructions posted by developer in order to avoid any problem during installation.
