Android 7.0 Nougat is packed with several new features and impressive optimizations, but most devices haven’t experienced it yet. While Android Nougat for Galaxy devices and many others will be rolling out in the coming weeks, you can be fancy and get Android Nougat boot animation right now.

However, while this boot animation was a part of the Nougat Beta releases, you can see this boot animation during a firmware upgrade or while working with ADB. If you want to change the plain looking boot logo with something much cooler, follow the steps given below.

Step 2: Rename the Old Boot Animation File

To change the boot animation of your Android device, you essentially need to replace one file with another. However, before you move the new file into the folder, you need to rename the old boot animation file first.

After downloading your preferred root-enabled file explorer app, use it to navigate to the /system/media folder on your device. In this folder, you will be able to locate a file named bootanimation.zip (If your device does not have this folder, then it is not supported).

Now tap and hold on the bootanimation.zip file and select rename. Without changing the name entirely, simply add .bak in front of the file name and press “OK”. If you ever want to go back to your original boot animation, you can simply delete the new file and rename the old boot animation file by removing .bak from its name.

Step 3: Copy the new Boot Animation to the Folder

Go ahead and copy the boot animation file you have recently downloaded to the /system/media folder. Simply paste and exit the app and you have now successfully changed the boot animation of your device to the Nougat boot animation.
