‘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.
