Change boot animation: Droid Incredible

Hi, everyone. I found this website that says how to change your phone's boot animation: http://opensourceexcedio.wordpress.c...oot-animation/

I have the same phone as the person who wrote this tutorial, but it doesn't work for me. When I run the command
./adb push /data/local
it says that I don't have the right permissions for my device. My phone has Android 2.3.4, and isn't rooted. This tutorial I found seems to be the Linux version for non-rooted phones (I found many of these for Windows). Any ideas how to do this on Linux for non-rooted phones?

Do you mean ADB doesn't have permissions for /data/local, or that ADB doesn't have permission for the device itself? In other words, if you do "adb devices", do you see your phone?

Unless you have added your phone to UDEV, you probably don't have the proper permissions for ADB to access it. You can either add a new rule for the Incredible so that it's device node is created with appropriate permissions, or else simply start the ADB server as root (I.E. sudo adb start-server), and then drop down to your normal user account to use it.

Hmm... I just tried again, and it said that it moved the animation over. However, I rebooted and still have the default animation. Any ideas?
