Windows Phone 7 Style Boot Animation

Windows Phone 7 Style Boot Animation

The excitement (amid other emotions) about the imminent release of Windows Phone 7 has inspired a vast range of themes and skins, which give your device the look and feel of the new operating system. As the developer’s first contribution to the site, XDA member Nevralgeek has created both a static splash screen and boot animation in the style of Windows Phone 7, which will either help you to theme more of your phone’s software in this style or to complete the illusion of having a Windows Phone 7 device when showing it off to friends.

To enable the modification, users need only download the attached .zip, which contains both the .png and the .gif. Using a program such as Advanced Config, you can then proceed to replace the animation and/or the splash screen accordingly.

The files are available in the original thread.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles.
