[root] live logcat boot ani v1.9
Requirements: ANDROID:2.1 and up
Overview: live logcat is the only app showing the real logcat log when booting! ubergeeky!
live logcat is the one and only boot animation replacement that shows the actual logcat log (Android debug messages). It looks a bit similar to a BIOS boot. Handy for developers too! Unlike other similar apps, the information you see on screen is real and live, not a pre-recorded fake.
!! requires a fully rooted device !!
!! install on DEVICE, NOT on SD-CARD !!
The application uses some (root) trickery to get itself installed and running, and it may not be compatible with all devices. It also requires writable /system in many cases. It has been tested and found working on the following devices (though it may not work on all firmwares and kernels for a specific device):
- Samsung Galaxy S
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 7"
- Samsung Vibrant
- Samsung Captivate
- HTC/Google Nexus One
- HTC Thunderbolt
- HTC Desire
- HTC Desire Z (T-Mo G2)
- HTC Desire HD
- HTC Incredible
- HTC HD2
- HTC Evo
- HTC Hero
- Motorola Droid
- Motorola Droid X
- Motorola Cliq
- Motorola Milestone
- Motorola Atrix 4G
- MyTouch 4G
- LG Optimus 2X
Added a third render method, should increase compatibility with various devices.
Note that on some devices, the animation is started too late. Still under investigation.
Also note that binary boot animations like this one are completely incompatible with some CyanogenMod builds.
