Things you will need:
- Root Enabled File Manager
- New Boot Animation – Should be MDPI resolution – 480 x 320dpi
- New Boot Sound If you Want to Change It – MP3 about 10 – 15 seconds – Should be some tutorials online to help you make a 10 to 15 second mp3
I always recommend a nandroid backup of a phone before messing with system files but since we don’t yet have cwm recovery we can’t really do that. If you decide to try this be careful that you don’t delete or rename the wrong files and I take no responsibility if you do.

Linux is case sensitive so the boot animation must be bootanimation.zip all lowercase and the power on sound must be PowerOn.mp3 with uppercase P and O.
Here are a few places you can get boot animations. Some of these are flashable zip’s meant to be flashed in recovery but just extract the zips and copy the boot animation from the system > media folders in the zip file.
