See your Wallpaper or Boot Animation in the Next XDANDROID Release!
To complement the current king of all projects, XDANDROID (the Android-for-Windows Mobile porting project that spans over many devices, including the Touch Pro, Diamond, X1 and HD), XDA member babijoee is asking for the community’s help in designing a boot animation and a selection of wallpapers to give the project more recognition.
There have already been several interesting entries to the contest, including several .gifs from XDA member lugiber. However, the project still needs new ideas for wallpapers in order to make it truly unique.
- Must contain the text “XDANDROID” (lowercase accepted)
- 640×480 dimensions
- 800×480 dimensions
- png, jpeg format
- Boot Animation
- 512×256 dimensions
- Contain text “XDANDROID” (lowercase accepted)
- 100 frames total
- png format
It’s quite likely that you’ve heard of the project if you have a recent Windows Mobile device. If babijoee likes your design, you will see it included in the next XDANDROID build along with four other contest winners’ entries.
If you think you have a good idea, why not drop in to the contest thread and see what everyone thinks.
