One of the darlings of the Android custom ROM world, AOKP, has a new, and pretty incredible, boot animation. Some of you may recall that the AOKP team started soliciting new boot animations from their user community back in December. That contest has now ended, and the winner, Joachim Holler, certainly delivered the goods.

For what it's worth, I was pleasantly surprised at how awesome this looks. Generally, boot animations may not be noteworthy, but they are still the first thing you see when you flash a ROM. For that reason, they can be very important because they can set a good first impression.

By winning the contest, Joachim won his choice of a Nexus 5 or Nexus 7, and his work will soon be featured as the default boot animation for all new official AOKP builds going forward.
