Boot animation changer now available with nearly 400 custom boot animations


Good news for those of you that are tired of your generic boot animations on your Android devices— a forum member on XDA Developers, Vincent8111, has compiled about 400 custom boot animations into a single program for your convenience.

The BootAnimation Changer runs on Windows and stores an extensive collection of boot animations, sorted by name or file size, and varies from the opening sequence of the Simpsons, to anime, to colorful abstract patterns, to an obvious favorite, the Android mascot. One pretty cool feature is that the program has the ability to change the resolution of the animation to fit different screens. The proportions of the animation are kept while in the act of re-sizing. This makes everything pretty simple and straightforward for the user.

A bit of a warning though— the program comes in at a hefty 1.6GB— those with limited broadband may want to stay away from the 400 animations included in the software. (Not to mention it will take up a pretty big chunk of your internal storage as well.) The file is free and comes in both English and French. As always, if you don’t have a lot of experience with flashing files to your Android and using custom recovery, we wouldn’t recommend messing around with your boot animations. It might not be for everyone, but it’s nice to know that there are alternative options out there to the default boot animations.
