I changed the boot animation on the Novel. The one I got is from the Droid X. Still needs some work to make it look better but it's much better than the original one (it does extend the boot time a little bit but not overly much). :)I have attached a video that I uploaded to YouTube. Skip past to about 50 seconds to see the animation. (I'll learn video editing soon
)
To make this happen you can do the following:1. Download a boot animation that you like.2. Place that file in the tools folder of the sdk for windows2b. PLace the file in the home folder in Ubuntu3. (Windows) adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip3b. (Ubuntu) adb push ./bootanimation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip4. adb rebootDroid X boot animation if you want it.http://www.4shared.com/file/ROWAll3T/bootanimation.html

Hey, if I could watch something animated instead of the interminable "SD Card Detected - Updating contents...please wait" screen I would be a happy camper. having around 3k books on the external SD card makes for LONG boot-up times.

The resolution is static, so those lines probably fit the borders of the device it was actually intended for. You could probably dump the bootanimation.zip into a folder, batch resize the pics to 800x600, and then rezip it.

[quote name='geebekazoo;27519]Oh man' date=' tell me more about Tapatalk...[/QUOTE'] Good program. You need the Probably version to reply to posts though. Have to try it from the Novel though. Anyways, it strips the images and other things like ads. Makes it quick and easy to read the forums. Sent from my Droid using Tapatalk

Very nice blazingwolf. Playing around with that myself. Looking to replace the initial boot screen with something a little nicer than that boring blue one. Maybe I'll figure it out, maybe someone else will..

blazingwolf,Nice work :)One question, Does the pandigital wallpaper/image which comes at the beginning of the boot is embedded inside bootloader/kernel and is that the reason why we are not able to replace it with some user image ?

I think that image is similar to my Moto Droid first boot image (the Motorola emblem). That had to have an sbf file to replace it. This file was a complete replacement of all things not just the OS like what we get from Pandigital. If this is true then we will have a very hard time replacing it. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think so.

Easiest way to create your own boot animation would probably be with Adobe Flash, you can download a free trial. It’s been a few years since I used it, actually back when it was macromedia before adobe bought them out. I have to play around with it when I can but you can create a video of your own or import other videos and once you are happy with your little video you can export each frame out to png.In Adobe CS4:Set your movie to 800x60Not sure what frame rate PDN uses but I would use 30 (the file posted above has 39 frames in part0 and 2 in part1)Create your videoOnce your done go to fileExportExport MovieAnd then select png as the file typeSave to folder you choose

Hey gang, try out the link below for 3 boot animations formated for the PDN. (Portrait)http://http://www.box.net/files#/files/0/f/48702782I downloaded a couple from the NetExtracted the zip they came in. Ran a conversion tool to change resolution to 800 x 600 and to turn image Clockwise 90 degrees.Change the desc.txt file first line to 800 600. I left the frame rate alone.Then re-zip and followed the install instructions. You can do this pretty quickly. Find a resizing tool, and find an animation you like. You'll have it running in no time.

Bad link. When you remove the bad portion of the link you still have to log in to the account. So no one can get these right now.
