This thread is the result of me wanting to find out how to do boot animations for the OUYA. My goal is to have boot animations available for download, all created by me in their entirety. Before you decide to transfer my boot animations, read below for a few tips and things that you should know before experimenting with this.

1. You do this at your own risk.

2. This replaces the boot animation that the OUYA displays. The one with the OUYA logo shining in the middle, not the one where someone says "OUYA". If you feel that later on you may want the original boot animation back, pull it from the OUYA with adb, and to a directory of your choice before pushing a new one. Keep it somewhere safe.

adb pull /system/media/bootanimation.zip c:\

3. You need to enable USB debugging from the OUYA's settings (MANAGE → SYSTEM → ADVANCED → Developer options → USB debugging ☑)

4. Your OUYA needs to be rooted in order to gain access to the /system/media folder. You can root your OUYA with the one-click root tool found in this thread (https://ouyaforum.com/showthread.php?5244-One-click-root-apk&p=54427&viewfull=1#post54427). No PC required.

5. You need to set up an Android development environment. Download/Install the Java JDK (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html) for your platform. Linux users also have the option to use OpenJDK Java 6 or 7 Runtime. I personally downloaded OpenJDK Java 7 Runtime from the Ubuntu Software Center, but here is a link (http://openjdk.java.net/) nonetheless. Download/Install the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) (http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html?hl=sk) for your platform as well.

6. You may need to download/install adbd Insecure (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=26885208&postcount=1) on your OUYA if adb complains about permissions. I had to do it.

7. Your OUYA controller may unpair itself once you transfer the boot animation the first time. It happened to me. After pairing it, the OUYA controller has not unpaired itself again.

8. If you are using a custom wallpaper, it may revert back to the default wallpaper during the process.

9. I used GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/) to create the images and Boot Animation Factory (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=26674583&postcount=1) to create the boot animation.

I could make a very detailed step-by-step guide of how I did everything, but there is no point to it since there are countless of other tutorials on the internet and I am not entirely sure if the procedure is the same for people not using Ubuntu. I recommend searching for How to set up adb on Google, for your Operating System, to be sure. Now, assuming that you have everything ready, the environment, the bootanimation.zip, and your body, go to Google again and search how to transfer it. I use the Terminal in Ubuntu, and I have installed adbd Insecure (I set it to Enable at boot for convenience) on my OUYA since adb gives me trouble without it. To transfer the bootanimation.zip to my OUYA, I make sure that the bootanimation.zip is in my Home folder, I open up the Terminal and type in:

adb remount

and my results are:

remount succeeded

Afterwards I type in:

adb push bootanimation.zip /system/media

and finally, my results are:

1320 KB/s (74783417 bytes in 55.313s)

Or whatever the size of the bootanimation.zip is. At this point the transfer has finished, I turn off my OUYA and turn it on to see the boot animations.
