How to rename bootanimation while in a boot loop?

Hello,

I renamed bootanimation to bootanimation.old and now the phone is in a boot loop.

Is there a way to simply rename the file back to what is was? I see hundreds of guides and they're all incredibly complicated. I tried "One click unbrick" and it fails with a driver problem...

Any help would be awesome. I rooted the thing and I managed to disable certain android annoyances (like the sound volume warning, or the bootanimation sound)... but this is killing me!

Thank you.
