How to customize Android Boot Animation

customize Android Boot Animation

The animation that plays when you turn on Android is called the “boot animation.” Most of the time, customize Android Boot Animation. For example, when the Motorola moto e6 is turned on, the company’s logo is shown as a sign of respect. Why do these boot animations even exist?

Aside from the thrill of seeing a developer’s logo, the purpose is to keep your attention while the device starts up, which can take a while. If you see that someone else with the same phone as you has a different boot animation than you do, then they must have changed it. So, of course, you need to change yours now, too.

Those of you who use Android 10 are in luck. You can change your boot animation, but you may need root permissions to do so. I wouldn’t say it’s easy, but it’s definitely doable.

How to change boot animation using adb?

If you want to save a copy of the current boo animation, you can use the command below: $ adb pull from /system/media/ C:\ After this, you can restart your board, and the new boot animation should appear.

Can you change boot mode?

Press F2 when prompted to enter BIOS menu. Navigate to Boot Maintenance Manager -> Advanced Boot Options -> Boot Mode. Select the desired mode: UEFI or Legacy. If UEFI option was selected, a new option named Video BIOS appears, select UEFI.

What is the best boot mode?

In general, use the newer UEFI mode to install Windows, since it has more security features than the old BIOS mode. If you are booting from a network that only supports BIOS, you will need to boot to legacy BIOS mode.

What is a UEFI boot mode?

UEFI defines a new way for operating systems (OSes) and platform firmware (firmware) to talk to each other. This gives OSes an alternative to the heavy BIOS that only uses the information needed to start the OS boot process. UEFI also has better security features than BIOS and can work with most BIOS systems that are already out there.
