    Use Super Manager, open the File Explorer, go up two levels to /, tap Menu, then Setup, then enable Root Function. You should now be able to get to /data/local/

    Ok I went ahead and used super and was able to find data local. I copied and pasted bootanimation.zip to the folder and that should be it? Let's find out

    You shouldn't have to remove the theme. Was there another bootanimation.zip in that folder already? If so just rename it to something like bootanimation1.zip. If not then if you could point me to the theme you got it could take a look and see what it's doing for the bootanimation.

    Actually I have the Galaxy orb boot animation with The alien theme no sound. I had to flash it thru cwm unlike this one where you just place it in the folder. I restored last night and flashed back to stock alien and removed the boot theme but I couldn't get it to work this morning now I have stock boot animation

    OK, so you got it to work, or you're still looking to change it?

    No I still haven't tried to sleep on it but I removed the one I had which I had to flash in the first place but this one I followed all the instructions. But I still feel like im missing something. All I do is drop the file into the data/local folder?

    That's it. Just drop it in the data/local folder. When Android boots up, it checks the data/local first. If no bootanimation.zip is in there then it checks another folder.

    Some Boot Animations creators store their Boot Animations in a file that has to be flashed through CWM. When it's flashed through CWM, it just extracts the bootanimation.zip and drops it into a startup folder automatically. The method for this bootanimation is to done manually. It's a matter of preference of which way is easier.
    The human brain is amazing. It starts as soon as you wake up and stops as soon as you get work.
