How to Disable Boot Animation in Android

Every Android device comes with boot animation. Boot Animation is an animation you would see after the Manufacturer logo when you boot your device.

There are two methods to disable boot animation in Android. Both the method works for the rooted device only. I highly recommend you to take a Nandroid backup before making any changes. Let’s get started.

Disable Boot Animation by using App


Before move ahead to the process, I recommend you to take a backup of the current boot animation file (Menu > Backup/Restore > Backup).
  • Go to Preferences.
  • Click on “Disable the boot animation”.

  • Select “Disable Boot Animation option.

  • Reboot phone. Now, your phone will be booted without any boot animation (and boot sound).

If you want to enable boot animation, choose “Enable the boot animation” option in the app.

Disable Boot Animation Manually


  • Go to /system/media. It is the Android boot animation location.
  • Find file. Delete or rename file. I recommend you to rename it to backup

  • Go to /system/bin. Find a file named “bootanimation”. Rename (recommended) or delete it.
