    Just wanted to let everyone know that the Dev team has added an update to enable this.

    Click on Cydia, then click on changes at the bottom of the screen and install "animate fix for iOS 4.x.x" dated from 8 July.

    You can now install any boot logo.

    Yes, I am using it. Have downloaded numerous different boot logo's, from Droid X to Honeycomb to an Apple logo that turns into the words iPad2.

    Hmm, I need someone else to confirm this. No offense, but often times when one person with no track record gives info like this it turns out to be inaccurate.

    Follow the directions above, respring after you load the app, then go back into Cydia and load any boot logo. Give it a shot, what have you got to lose?

    Looking through the notes on it, everything I can see shows it's for iPhone only. I don't see any evidence to support that it works on 4.3.3 on iPad 2. If you'd like to upload a video I'd be happy to see, but I'm not taking the chance on having to restore all my crap :-(

    Will post one up when I get home from work. Pick any type of logo you'd like to see. They pretty much have one for anything.

    So I ran it, then downloaded a animation... but how do I tell it to run the animation? When I install it then reboot it's just the stock logo.

    EDIT - Figured it out in settings menu

    I had no reason to lie. As you can see, it's a cool little mod. :D

    Kinda pointless when the original loads, then the replacement only briefly loads... i reverted to stock.

    What's a lire? Is that like a flat tyre? Or a clothes driar?

    HEHE, sorry I had to.

    Yeah, boot animations are silly IMO... how often do you reboot an iPad? That's why it's so funny when people complain about tethered JB's ... who cares? I reboot mine like once a month.

    I tried it just to see what it's like. It worked for me and I installed another boot logo. It also worked for me. However, it's nothing special and like someone else said, I rarely reboot my iPad, so I will end up removing those two tweaks.
