Boot Animation Manager makes Changing Animations a Breeze

There are hundreds, if not thousands of awesome boot animations out there, and even if you can’t find one that blows you away, it’s not all that difficult to make your own. If you change yours on a regular basis, you have probably worked out a pretty simple and efficient way of doing so. However, no matter how efficient your method is, we might have stumbled across something that could make that process even simpler. If you don’t change your boot animation all that often, then you may certainly consider it after reading this.

 Boot Animation Manager by XDA recognised developer D4rKn3sSyS is a tool for Windows that makes swapping out boot animations as simple as possible with nothing more than a few clicks.

  • Connect your phone
  • Drag & drop the animation you would like to install
  • Preview it
  • Then push to your device (It will even backup your current animation before pushing the new one)

The requirements are pretty straight forward: a computer running Windows, Java installed, a rooted phone, and according to the developer it’s recommend that you should be “human or similar.” I’m sure most of us have those covered. He also has some pretty cool features planned for future versions including building animations from .png sequences and .gifs, and being able to resize an animation to fit your device’s resolution.

 Boot Animation Manager should work on the majority of rooted phones and tablets and is available from it’s original thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
