Learn How to Make Your Own Boot Animation

Boot animations are one of the first things that you see after turning on your device. They are in fact just a set of images in the specified PNG format, but they make a ROM seem unique. Sometimes, they are even our favorite part of a particular project. If you are an intermediate Android power user, it’s relatively easy for you to create a boot animation, but you need to have the right tools to do it without editing files manually. It’s a long process and why to choose the manual way when there are plenty of more optimized methods?

One such tool is Bootanimation Factory by XDA Recognized Developer despotovski01. To make using it even easier, XDA Senior Member jackeagle wrote a guide showing new users how to use this Windows-only tool. The guide is full of pictures so that you won’t get lost creating even a very long boot animation. By following this guide, you will learn which tools are the best for you to create your own, which will proudly be displayed every time you run your favorite ROM.

You can learn more by visiting the guide thread.
