Boot Animation Preview Updated

Having an awesome boot screen on Android devices is becoming a very hard task with all these available packages, but this Windows application is here to help. Made by XDA member camalot, this application sets out to give you access to your boot files, allowing you to see the animation. This way, you’ll know what looks the coolest before you load it all up.

This is a tool for windows that will allow you to preview a boot animation (bootanimation.zip) file before applying it to your device. If you have the SDK in your environment path, it will also allow you to apply the boot animation to the device. I have tested about 50 boot animations and only had 2 that wouldn’t load, and they didn’t load because there was an invalid line in the desc.txt file.
Requirements

  • .NET Framework 4.0
  • Windows XP or later
  • Android SDK added to Environment path (to set the boot animation on the device, if you don’t have it in the path, you just cant set it from the app)
  • Boot Animation files to open (you can pull one off your device @ /system/media/bootanimation.zip)

You can download this preview tool in the application thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...

Optimize Battery Life with This Useful App

Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery. Now, you can't magically expand its size but no matter how much its capacity is, you should make sure it's not draining faster than it should be. Your phone's processor runs at different frequencies when you're using the device. The CPU...

The OnePlus 2 & The Year of Smartphone Compromises
