Big Bang MIUI Boot Animation
It looks as if lately our devs have been focusing a lot on the looks of our devices. You may remember not too long ago, a great CM7 boot animation that was created by XDA member adam2010. Well, if you liked it but are currently using the other famous AOSP rom known as MIUI, you will feel great to know that the dev has prepared a boot animation for this rom as well. Big Bang starts just as that… a big bang of light and dust (think of the beginning of our galaxy). After all the dust dissipates, you see the birth of this rom. Very clean and nice graphics and it is bound to run rather well on higher end devices. The animation has no audio, which is actually nice for those late night flashing runs when you are trying not to wake up the dog.
Please leave some feedback if you enjoy this one.
No matter what size screen you have, the Big Bang bootanimation can fit it perfectly and it doesn’t lose quality. I have highly optimized the images and made the animation as smooth as possible. I hope you guys experience the same thing.
