This application is currently in a BETA testing stage, bugs and hiccups may exist. ROOT access is required and your device must be compatible with custom ZIP boot animations.

Boot Box does NOT support Samsung devices that are running a TouchWiz ROM with a boot animation in the .QMG format. You may solve this issue by flashing a custom ROM that supports ZIP based animations, or by installing a mod at your own discretion:

HTC devices must have S-OFF.

Some GIF previews may not be scaled properly, this is a common issue present when the animation has frames that conform to a 1:1 aspect ratio. Thank you for all of your feedback.

Please consider emailing me before leaving a negative review, Boot Box is a work in progress and is only currently available to showcase an idea, enrichment via the addition of animations will occur slowly as contributions are submitted. Don't forget that the features of Boot Box are free to use!

What is Boot Box?

The Boot Box Project is a community project that aims to produce a large database of easily accessible boot animations. What makes the Boot Box Project powerful is your ability to contribute, users may submit their boot animations directly from the Boot Box app.

Some Boot Box Features

-Dynamic Database. Animations are fetched and updated dynamically from a database on the Boot Box server.

-Categories: show/hide certain animation categories.

-Upload your boot animations directly from the Boot Box app.
The built-in Boot Box Uploader creates the required resources for you, including the GIF Preview.

-Scrambler: allows you to play a different boot animation at every boot.

-Boot Box Factory: create your own boot animations straight from Boot Box! Creating a static animation will allow you to show your favorite picture on boot up. Creating a Slideshow animation will allow you to display multiple pictures on boot up, each for a set amount of time! (at most, a 10 picture limit is recommended).

-Animations can be previewed via a YouTube video (if the uploader provides a link), via a GIF preview, or via a ZIP preview (the animation is downloaded and played in a simulated environment).

-Animations have a thumbnail that gives you a small idea of the animation before previewing it.

-Local Boot Animation ZIP previewing, installing, and GIF creation (thanks to XDA Developer D4rKn3sSyS).

-Flexible boot animation and cache locations for different devices.

Additional Notes

Boot Box currently supports the following five resolutions: 768x1280, 720x1280, 800x1280, 480x800, 1080x1920. If your device's resolution isn't listed, expect issues, please don't leave negative feedback (Bb is just growing), and use Boot Box at your own discretion (I wouldn't like to hear about a 320x240 phone "exploding," or refusing to boot, after loading an animation with 1080x1920 assets, please!).

Gingerbread support is currently limited.
No GIF preview support currently exists under gingerbread.

    Anyway, how could you change the default sound when booting up? I kinda don't like mine and I want to change it. Thanks!
