‘Mind-Bending’ Portal 2 Boot Animation
Now, don’t think I’m being generalistic here, but chances are the majority of you are gamers, and quite avid one’s at that. I love a good ol’ game myself, especially on Steam. All of Valve’s source games have been fantastic, from the release of the heroic Half-Life with Gordan Freeman to the mind-bending adventure, Portal. If you’re a fan of the original Portal, you may enjoy this boot animation from the highly anticipated sequel, Portal 2, by XDA member JamesC_.
The animation itself features the lighting up and glowing of the Portal 2 setting logo, Aperture Laboratories. It will work happily on any 480×800 devices, but you will require a rooted device.
To save yourself the trouble of navigating the animation through your file system and placing it in the correct directory, you could even use the Bootanimation Utility that I wrote of the other day, which will allow you to back up your original/current animation easily.
If you’d like to download this awesome animation, support its creator, or both, head on over to the original thread.

Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
