Boot animations wont work - tried everything

Before i start i just wanted to let you guys know, i did my best to search around the forum using the search bar and manually, read all of the guides and tut's, read other peoples problems and tried their solutions

nothign seems to be working.

im on a Pantech Sky Vega IM-A650S.
i followed the tutorials located



but nothing seems to be working. my phone is z4rooted, and now when my phone boots its just black and plays the original boot sounds.
im doing this through the ROOT EXPLORER method,

i was trying to get the alienware boot animation someone created here to work on my phone and it just stays black.

i have stretched the images like in the tutorial, used the "imageresizer/Boot animation Creator"

i place it on my sdcard, then click mount r/w and move it to the media folder where it replaces the original bootanimation.zip

- in an attempt i actually tried renaming it just to "bootanimation" (without the .zip) and placing it in my "bins" folder because i noticed that there was a file there as well. looks like it made my situation worse.

all i really want to do is learn that way i can start making boot animations other people may want to use.


0 i know it was stupid of me not to make a backup of the original bootanimation, but i have the files needed to factory reset this phone.

the resolution is 480 x 800 ( i tried this resolution as well as the others )


Help would be greatly appreciated, i only ever ask a question once and thats when im at a complete loss
