With every Android version comes a new boot animation and a familiar one disappears. But maybe you want to have your own boot animation, something that not everyone has yet. This is where Bootiful comes in. With Bootiful you can choose from a large library of boot animations, the one that suits you and install it with a single click.

With older Android versions, you could add your own boot animations to the system without much effort. Unfortunately, this is no longer so easy with Android 10 or 11.

Requirements for Bootiful

The prerequisite for using Bootiful is a rooted device with Magisk.

What is Magisk?

With Magisk, custom mods can be used in the system. Google services cannot be used on conventional rooted devices, but this is still possible with Magisk. Magisk works by modifying the boot partition, the system partition remains untouched.
