    It would be nicer if it actually changed colour like the live wallpaper, I was really hoping the stock one did that when I first saw it. One colour gets a bit boring imho.

    can I download it on my xperia z1 compact? it has 720p screen

  • techielover

    it would be awesome if just by changing the boot animation the operating system gets changed from kitkat to Android L haha ;)

  • Luca

    Why couldn’t Sony do that?

  • somsuvra

    dats a dream to fight for!! ;P

  • NidouXperia

    i can do it my self but i have done more premium and unique one!

  • Zulu

    With a rooted device you can do everything, even more than a boot animation …

  • xperiaDROID

    Simple and elegant with some Arabic coffee color! Nice work, man!

  • NidouXperia

    thanks :)

    you can go to my page and download it and choose the model number listed in the thread!

    yeah looks gold brownish

  • Jim

    Maybe because only 0.0001% of their custome base would even care? I mean, I’ve seen my boot animation four times total, once per software update :)

  • Bio24

    Sky blue and Blood Red is beautiful :D

  • Adrian969

    Would be cool if Sony added funktion to change bootanimation in the Theme-function.

  • Elisa

    Then update my Xperia V to Kitkat first, and we will see

  • Mohammed Khired

    yours is elegant !

  • Luca

    If you’d see the Ram managment on Xperia SP, you would restart it like 10 times every day. Trust me.

  • Phoenix

    True that m8!
    But the phone is pretty smooth even though the RAM usage is high :/

  • seppl

    Haha! As you might know, Android is a Linux OS. The RAM usage of Linux is an all time misunderstanding: many people think, thank Linux is a memory hog – but they don’t know that Linux is using as much memory as it can get … because it uses it as cache! Even if “0 Bytes a free” is displayed, this doesn’t mean that the OS has no memory left for running an App. It just uses the cached memory and saves valuable performance by avoiding to calim and free memory.

  • i want to be able to easily remove the xperia text and boot sound and make the animation more high res
