Is this a trait unique to the NA version of phones? The stock player on all 3 International Galaxy phones had no problems with FLAC playback for me redface.gif

Yeah, I got it when I had my HTC Desire with no FLAC support (not even through ROMS frown.gif) but Winamp added that support. The thing I noticed was that I had to go through the folder browser to use the FLAC files on my Desire. They'd never show in the library, most likely because the Mediaserver (the scanner) didn't recognise them. Whereas with my GS3 they now show up in the library.

Pretty much, though, if you get the GS3, it has FLAC support and the default music player has an EQ... all the things I wanted Winamp for are gone, but, I've paid now and I prefer the interface of Winamp, plus the wireless sync is good!



Also, FINALLY, custom boot animations are available for the GS3. Should work for the US version too. How to enable?

Look in /system/bin/ and find the bootanimation file, copy it and paste it into the bin folder as bootanimation_2. Find the samsungani file, rename it to samsungani.bak, then rename the bootanimation_2 file to... you guessed it, samsungani biggrin.gif

Then put bootanimation.zip files in /data/local/ et voila, custom boot animations biggrin.gif

Here's a good one to get you started:

http://www.mattman.org/index.php/downloads/jelly-bean-boot-animtion

The only thing you NEED to do is to open those files and change the desc.txt. They're set to loop until the bootstrapping is done, but for some reason the GS3 doesn't stop the animation, even though it's finished booting, so you get stuck on the boot animation screen (with a totally working phone in the background, lol). So, here's what you change in the desc file:

Change this:
Code:
720 1280 30
p 1 0 part0
p 1 0 part1
p 0 0 part2

to this:
Code:
720 1280 30
p 1 0 part0
p 1 0 part1
p X 0 part2

Where the X is the number of times to run the animation. 0 is infinite, which is not what we want for our phones as it doesn't correctly switch off the animation when it's finished. You want to do that for the LAST part of the order (some animations might have three parts, some may only have one. Either way you change that number. The second number is the delay before running that animation, just FYI.

So, for that above animation I posted, I set the X to 3 smile.gif

Let me know if that works on the US verison.


OH, make sure you put a boot animation file into data/local BEFORE making the changes and rebooting. otherwise you'll be stuck on the boot screen with no way (other than adb) of fixing and rebooting!

Maybe I was just spoilt with MIUI but it had no issues with FLAC in the stock music player, everything worked perfectly. Then again MIUI was way ahead of its time... the reason I haven't switched from it still is because it has some of those features that other roms don't have(plus, theming is much better on it). The downside however is that there isn't a really good JB port of it yet frown.gif

Oh and I bought that anyway lol, but hey at least I can use flac as ringtones biggrin.gif Oh well I like the look of winamp over the default player.

Anyone use the app aWARemote? Its awesome if you use winamp on your desktop, basically just a remote controll but you can browse your library/create playlists from the phone. Its cool if you have a party or something and want to control the music without having to go to the stereo

Just wondering, have any of you have any issues playing videos? As soon as I flashed my bionic to ICS I can't watch videos.
