Windows Phone 7 Boot Animation for Android
Perhaps you are one of those members who would love to have a bit of Windows Phone 7 on your Android device. If so, then XDA member abhi0n0nakul gives you the WP7 boot screen animation. The boot screen is presented in three different options: With Android engraved, basic, and original one for WVGA (HDPI) screen resolutions. Moreover, you will find a QVGA (LDPI) version but this one only comes as the original one.
You will need your device to be rooted in order to get it working and the developer also places an easy how-to in case you want to revert back to your previous boot screen. Please leave your feedback.

2.) Run the following adb command to push the animation into the proper place:
