Adding custom Splashscreen in Ionic Framework 1.3.X

I would like to check if its possible to add custom animation in Splashscreen.
I tried implementing a JS event concept similar to the logic mentioned in the below link

For Android, i don’t see any animation(not the Cordova / my custom animation)… which is completely strange. Fyi, i did not use Crosswalk…
Looking forward to hear some inputs on how to implement this.
