Changing splash screen requires S-OFF
You flash these at your own risk
Changing the boot and shutdown animations can be done regardless of S-ON/S-OFF but the transition from splash to animation (and back when rebooting) is better when using the included splash screen (or a similar custom dark splash screen).
I have an animation for my splash screen and on some phones which take longer to load things, it starts mid animation.
The splash screen is really an activity that has a View, in which the animation is drawn. Is it possible to wait for the screen to load and then start the thread in the View? I mean can I somehow check if I can begin the animation and it will be shown, the whole thing
