Android Boot Animations from GIFs

Published

A simple shell script that converts GIF files into bootanimation.zip files that are compatible with Android. I wrote this to convert GIFs from GifCities into boot animations for my phone.

The script takes an animated gif like the following:

You can find the script and instructions on how to use it in its Git repo.
