A lot of Boot Animations are available for the user to be applied to his device. Now due to the valuable efforts of XDA member zooyork0721, the Moto X Boot Animation can also be applied to your device.

Here’s how the Boot Animation of the Moto X looks like :

Along with the original Moto X Boot Animation, a blacked out version is also available. If the Boot Animation of your screen size is not available, you can request one to the developer in his XDA Thread as the developer is open to requests.
