If you’re bent on customizing every aspect of your Android phone, this helpful guide will show you how to swap out the stock boot animation for a new custom one.

Addictive Tips shares a detailed guide to swapping out your boot animation by either downloading an existing alternate boot animation or creating your own. One of the nice things about the technique is you can do it on both rooted and unrooted phones–the difference is users with rooted phones can save the boot animation in a system directory where it will persist after a hard reset.
