Be Mysterious With the DroidRevamp Boot Animation
Have you ever wanted to get that mysterious-title Hollywood feel from your phone when it boots up? Just like in the movies, the light passes behind the letters, creating a cool effect which makes the viewer feel the title is dark and mysterious. No? You’ve probably never been that specific, however, it’s a cool effect and now it can be on your phone.
XDA member santiemanuel brings us two of these animations, one in blue and one in red. Not only do the animations look great, but they have support for 480×800, 480×854, and qHD resolution screens. The animation itself is of the original classic Android logo, but “revamped”, quite well, I think.
Don’t know how to install bootanimations? Well, you could use the fantastic Boot Animation Utility which I wrote about a while ago. (Which, as of now, has had a lot more development than before). But if using an app isn’t your ‘thing’, all you have to do is “rename to bootanimation.zip and push/copy to /data/local or /system/media“. Simple, huh?
If you’d like to get these dandy animations, head on over to the original thread!
