The boot animation from CyanogenMod 7 still ranks somewhere towards the top of my personal list, but this new one, created by the same designer Cameron Behzadpour (73v1n) using Adobe After Effects, is definitely a step-up.

It builds on top of his previous effort and is quite possibly the best-looking boot animation I've seen on Android so far. And it's officially coming to CM9. Excellent work, Cameron!

Update: Check out this unofficial take on the same animation, but without as much background noise that some of you may prefer:

    Sweet looking bootanim. Though it prefer minimalist ones like the Virtuous Inquisition bootscreen on the Sensation.

    • Joe

      If you want minimalist, buy an Apple product. LOL

  • Freak4Dell

    Definitely better than the CM7 one. I was never a fan of that one, to be honest. It just looked too...old. The robot in this one still makes it look kind of outdated, but I'm glad they got rid of the arrow in the circle, and the background is downright awesome.

    As someone posted in the YouTube commets, the song is "Dispatch" by the J. Arthur Keenes Band.
