We all like to be greeted by our phones by a pretty little animation which relates to us in some way, is of something we like, or we just generally like the look of. Granted, there is a staggering number of cool animations here on XDA, created by some of the greatest developing minds, ever. However, what we want isn’t always available.
That’s why despotovski01 wrote up a fantastic tutorial taking every reader, step by step, through how to create their own boot animation. But what’s that, I hear? You don’t think you have what’s needed to design and compile everything into the final .zip needed to install the animation? Well, that’s where you’re wrong. To do this you need three components; A photo editor, a text editor and an archive-manager.

-A photo-editing program (GIMP and Photoshop are the best), which can save pictures in .png format
-A text editor (everyone has that)
-An archive-managing program (Power Archiver, WinZip), that is capable of making .zip archives
Now that I’ve shown you the way to getting the neccesary applications to make your perfect boot animation, head on over to the thread, get reading and enjoy your new skill!_________
