We have already shared the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean wallpaper pack that was extracted from the all new Google Nexus 7 (Asus) flagship tablet device. And now we have the new Jelly Bean boot animation for devices running older Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It ‘s worth noting that boot animation on Nexus 7 tablet (first device to get Jelly Bean) and Google Nexus phones differ a lot. Now if you are someone who can’t afford to wait till July for the official OTA update here is what you can do now to get this boot screen ported to your existing ICS device.

This boot animation zip files shared by folks over at XDA developers forum can be downloaded on to your Android phone running Ice Cream Sandwich that will replace the ICS boot animation with the new less fancy JB screen. Follow the steps below to download and install it now.

1. Download and install ES File Explorer to access root of your Android phone.

2. Now head over to /system/media/ folder on your ICS phone. Rename file to bootanimation.bak. Alternatively you can copy the existing file to your sdcard for backup. Note that some HTC phones have file in /system/customize/resource/ directory.
