How To Change Your Android Phones Boot Animations

Published

on

The main reason why Android is the most popular OS among mobile users is the freedom that it offers. Although there are plenty of customizations that you can enjoy out of the box, rooting pushes your Android even further. The ability to change boot animation on Android is one such feature, which does offer great aesthetic appeal.

There are two basic methods that you can implement to change boot animation on Android with root access. You can either choose to download the boot animation and install it manually, or use the Boot Animations app.

Method 1: Change boot animation manually

While changing the boot animation manually may seem like a mammoth task, it is as easy as replacing a file. To do so, all you need is a file manager and the desired boot animation, along with a rooted Android device.

Start off by installing any of the best Android file managers that come with root permission support. Once you have downloaded the file manager, open it and grant the app Superuser permission to view and edit root files.

The second part comes down to downloading the boot animation you want to install on your device. You can find a massive collection of original and custom boot animations on theXDA Forum. Simply download the boot animation file from the XDA Themes section, orAndroidBootAnimation using the link given below.

Once you have downloaded the boot animation file, rename it as “bootanimation.zip” and save it to the local storage of your Android. Launch the file manager app, copy the “bootanimation.zip” file and paste it in the System->Media folder and restart the device. This will change boot animation on your device and replace it with the custom one.

Method 2: Change boot animation using Boot Animations app

If you’re planning to keep changing your boot animation every now and then, Boot Animations is the app you need. This app requires root access, and comes with several custom boot animations that allow you randomly customize the boot image.

Boot Animations has a file manager built into it under the “Local” tab, which allows you install the downloaded boot files. While the “Server” tab gives you complete access to dozens of boot animations available online.

Whereas, the “Randomize” tab ensures a different boot animation every time you reboot the device. You can simply tap on the boot animation, select “Install” and your new boot animation will be installed directly.

As a brand new entry in Samsung’s popular Galaxy M series, the Galaxy M51 exists as a higher-placed alternative to the Galaxy M31s , which was launched earlier in July. However, belaying expectations, the Galaxy M51 has only been launched in Germany for now, with news about the global launch still anyone’s guess.

The Galaxy M51 smartphone brings with it several notable improvements appearing to be very much in line with what the leaks had suggested over the past few days, with the biggest selling point of the device being the 7000mAh battery pack, which also supports up to 25W fast charging. A switch to Snapdragon processor has also been muted.

Here’s a complete laydown on everything new with the Samsung Galaxy M51 smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy M51 Specifications and Features

The Samsung Galaxy M51 is anything to go by any Samsung phone with the device sporting a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a centered hole-punch and full HD+ resolution.

Although Samsung’s official listing doesn’t make it clear which processor the phone is using, reports point to the device been powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC, as previously speculations.

The phone offers a single 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage variant with support for MicroSD card expansion. The smartphone runs on Samsung’s custom OneUI, based on Android 10 operating system.

In the camera department, the Galaxy M51 features the same setup as the Galaxy M31s, packing a rear camera 64MP primary sensor, coupled with an f/1.8 lens. Sat next to it is a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens that brings with itself the promise of 123-degree field-of-view, a 5MP depth sensor, and a 5MP macro camera. For selfies, there is a 32MP lens which remains unchanged from the Galaxy M31s.

However, the insane 7,000 mAh battery is what gives the Galaxy M51 its headline. The 6000 mAh battery fitted on previous Galaxy M series phones was the largest in its segment. Also, Samsung has includey a 25W fast charger inside the box, the same one that comes with the Galaxy M31s and some of Samsung’s recently launched flagships.
