Here is the perfect compromise for people who are hardcore Halo fans and Android fans. Animated bootscreens can be plain, dull, or good looking, but XDA member Crackanug‘s creation is on a league of its own. The dev has put a lot of time and effort in creating this wonderful clip of Halo Reach. You can see how the character is on a mission to take down the “Apple” center with an Android bomb, which proves to be a bit more complex than what he probably bargained for. Keep in mind that this is a long duration bootscreen, but it is well worth the extra time.
The file has been put together as a flashable package, but you can always download the original files and push it via adb if you feel a little “old school”. Please leave some feedback for the dev.
After almost 4 weeks of putting together storyboards, computer crashes, time constraints with the animation, testing, starting over, finally settling on a storyboard, more testing, editing, a broken car that won’t start, being stranded at home for 2 days due to the weather, I am PROUD to give you Halo Reach Android Bootscreen. I hope you all enjoy, I am currently rocking it on my rooted EVO. Be aware the animation is a little longer than what most are used to for a bootscreen.
