alright, you sent me what I sent you. I need the version you converted. I also got a black screen with that version for some reason. I thought it might be that I left the bootanim.xex in the flash, so I transferred it to my computer, renamed it, deleted the original, then the file wouldn't transfer back for some reason. since I couldn't get the bootanim back on the flash, I reflashed 17559, which made it come back. however, I have no idea why this is giving me a black screen, so I need your version.
thanks, I just downloaded the pack as well as the app you mentioned, and I backed them up a couple of times. I found two fakeanim's on my system: one on the internal; one on the external. I changed my launch.ini to usb, so that's easier to get at. then, I just now deleted the one on the internal drive. all working.
