Get the HTC Thunderbolt boot animation!

| January 11, 2011 | Reply

Can’t wait for the HTC Thunderbolt to finally get into your hands? Looking to get some of that Thunderbolt love on your device before it’s actually released? Then this little tidbit should make you very happy! Remember the RUU (system dump) from the HTC Thunderbolt we brought to you last week? Well it looks like the great minds over at MyDroidWorld have been digging around and have pulled the Boot Animation WITH sound for your downloading enjoyment! Right now this will only work for rooted phones and run on the Motorola Droid X, Droid2, Droid2 R2-D2 and Droid2 Global. I loaded this up on Droid2 Global and it worked perfect!

Download link below!! Give it a go and leave us a comment below and let us know how you like it.

Want some of the goodness that was found in the Thunderbolt RUU?  Then how about the boot animation running on your Droid X, Droid 2, or D2 Global?  The file should flash to any of those phones, including the R2-D2 version and will give you the full experience including sound.  While the sound on my DX does come out a little off, the animation is top notch and I can’t wait to actually get a hold of this phone.  Until then though, we’ll do our best to make your current device look and work like one.



1.  Download the file from above to your SD card.
2.  Reboot into recovery using Koush’s Bootstrap app.
3.  Choose “install zip from SD card.”
4.  Then “choose zip from SD card” and find the , select it and hit “yes.”
5.  Reboot and enjoy!

Big thanks to My Droid World for putting this together!
