For those of you who want to get custom boot animations, you can change them easily using Zedomax Epic Touch Kernel (v3 or later) and copying over the bootanimation.zip file over to system directory /system/media.
You need to have Zedomax Epic Touch Kernel installed or any other kernel that supports it.
If you know how to use ADB, you can simply enable your Android filesystem as read/write and copy the file over OR if you are not so inclined or simply want a faster/easier way, you can buy the Root Explorer off the market.
First find bootanimation.zip with 800×480 resolution, you should be able to find a bunch by googling. Download the bootanimation.zip file and copy over to your Epic 4G Touch’s internal storage disk drive.
Using Root explorer, find the file bootanimation.zip file you just copied over and select “Copy”.
Then browse to the /system/media directory, enable r/w (hit button at top right), then paste.
Reboot your phone and enjoy your new boot animation.
This will only change the boot animation after the Samsung boot screen.
