Scarcely a day has passed since the Google Play Edition Galaxy S4 and HTC One went on sale, and their software bits are already floating around online. You can grab the files to get the new red SunBeam live wallpaper, boot animation, and updated camera app on your device. These are only confirmed working on AOSP-based devices, and 4.1.2 TouchWiz in the case of the camera. Do be careful!


The new boot animation is a group of spinning Google-color dots. It's a nice-looking animation and it's not hard to install. Place the ZIP in /system/media and then fix permissions rw-r-r- with a root file explorer and reboot (note that this will overwrite the current animation). Alternatively, you can just push the file over ADB to data/local without messing around in a root file explorer, but it might not always work. Here's a guide to help you along.
