Here is the beautiful new boot animation in Android L

Android L is already out on the Google developers website and the lucky few who own a Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 can get the beta up and running on their device right now, but while those lucky few can enjoy it, some other users have made a complete dump of everything in the new Android version.

We've already shown you the new wallpaper pack in Android L, and now, here’s a first look at the new boot animation in Android L. It’s not something that you can flash on your phone just yet - it’s just a gif showing how Google has added a bit more color and character to the booting Android.

While you’d still need to wait a while until someone makes this new boot animation flashable, here are some other awesome boot animations that you can actually flash on your Android device right now.

That looks really appealing...unlike anything I've seen~~ Will this splash screen appear on phones that are not on stock Android?

Xda devs are really like wolves, give them a $h€€p, they'll rip it off into pieces. Just look at that stuff-they already system dumped it , wallpapers, ringtones, clock, fonts, keyboard, play services, apps. Kudos to them.

So? When did someone last cared about a wallpaper or a ringtone? It's childish you even think about these. A new clock or a font or keyboard isn't not going to have a single effect on my life. My phone will work the same way with the old font or old ringtone!

Look at you, You are sounding like a lame, butthurt guy, living in a b&w world with no joy ;( Get a life bro. Sympathies to you.

People using Nexus calling others boring! Nexus is the epitome of a boring bland phone. Only geeks use it to hide their insecurity. Don;t be a teenager salivating about ringtone and wallpapers. Grow up (if at all you're a grown-up). Typical uneducated moron.

Ooh that sounded like a butthurt who is jealous about nexus getting android updates first. :)

This does looks like you have a 3310, so any update to Android/IOS will have no effect on your phone and it'll function the same way it did.

So what OS is "modern" looking, according to you?

I think iOS looks pretty neat. Yes it is limited and I agree but the looks feels better imo. Google needs to get some new design team members.

iOS looks okay, but its too colorful and childish for my tastes, thats why I find android UI more elegant.

I like the features they're bringing to L, but I really dislike everything about the UI and now the boot animation. Luckily, all these can be changed and is up to the user which is always the biggest strength of Android.
