tak500Want to give the new Google Android ‘L’ boot animation a try? Well you don’t have to wait for Android’s newest software to arrive this fall, as the boot animation has been extracted so that you can download it right now onto your Sony Xperia device.

This will work on rooted devices, but all you need to do is download this file. Then move it to system/media and set the correct permissions (RW-, R–, R–) and reboot your handset once completed. Enjoy!

    I prefer the bootanimation of Sony KitKat …

    @XperiaBlog:disqus, it’s in /system/media, and not /system/app ;)

    Bet Sony Will do a own boot animation for their devices, and not keep androids own! :-) that one they have right now is from the PS4 and I love it! They should, if that case they change it, just redo a cooler animation and choose a more PlayStation sounded sound :-) (that’s what I think, keep the relationship between the products Sony!)

    Why should you buy a #Nexus Smartphone? #Android #Nexus5

    The sound is included in xperia M2 if I am not wrong. But personally boot animation should not include sound. Also I hate playstation boot animation, this android L one is far better than that.

    is it just me or is Google heavily borrowed and Sony’s Timescape design for the new Android L?

    Yes i think the grey on status bar and nav bar is sony style

    I feel that the new Material Design (Quantum Paper sounds so much better) is actually quite a natural design evolution for Google, let’s face it : cards were going out of style and the grey looks really didn’t look like the rest of Google, I’m still on the fence about all the animations though, then again I haven’t actually seen a real-time demo so I dunno, but definitely excited about 60 fps animations and transitions throughout all apps with Material UI, the homescreens and app drawers were already buttery smooth, now this should take out all the jerkiness from other apps as well.

    What I WAS surprised was that Google actually decided to extend this language to ALL of Android i.e. AOSP, unlike KitKat where the new design was the Google Launcher (closed source). This demonstrates that Google is still wholly devoted to AOSP, which is great.
    Wonder how much Sony will change its UI with this update though, as I really love the current one. My guess is just more animations and transitions all-around.

    Quite low odds on that one, since they’ve always made their own

    The Sony Kit Kat animation is the worst! Retarded looking waves. I preferred the previous jellybean boot animation with much better colourful waves

  • True Radiant Free

    Thanks for clarifying that, I knew something wasn’t right, this is my first time using a new boot animation.

    THIS IS NOT COOL GOOGLE NOT COOL SERIOUSLY

    This one is full screen, previous wasn’t. Never liked it. I loved the silver Xperia boot animation from the Ericsson era.

  • Felipe Pimenta

    I installed the L Dev Preview in my brother’s N7 2013 for a quick spin. Man, it changes a LOT of stuff. I didn’t liked most of stock Android’s UI, but from what we can see already, this crushes even Sony’s UI into tiny little pieces.

    And, to the OP of this comment thread, Material doesn’t look anything like Sony’s Timescape. The old Timescape, even less. The only thing I can see that was “copied”, UI wise, is the animation in Check Boxes and Radios.

    WTF?! O_O

    lol, I don’t see your point. The similarity is not a big as you might expect. Look at the letters carefully and you’ll see… (for example the inner circles of the “a”s and the “d”s, they are slighty cutted, and the thickness, and and and)

  • Damon Adrian

    it’s too flat and colorful for my taste. i’ll wait for android M

    yawn…Ive gotten bored with my Nexus phones. The camera always sucked and such. Sure the latest updates are always fine and dandy but that is what root and custom ROMS are for.
