Default HOWTO: Install Custom Splash Screens

Hey There

Here is a tutorial on how to make and install Custom Splash Screens (The Huawei Logo in this case)

You Will Need:
Paint.NET
the rgb565 plugin for Paint.NET
The Splash Screen "Installer" from here
A Recovery mode installed on your phone (Ultrajack will be used here)
Your Phone initialized into USB Mass Storage Device mode
Archiving Program (like 7-zip for example)


1. Open Paint.NET and make a new image of 240x320 (the size of the phone's screen)

2. After done making the image, go to File > Save As..., and save it as a rgb565 file, close Paint.NET and then rename the file as "oemlogo.mbn" and keep the file window open

3. Open the Splash Screen "installer" with a archiving program and go to /system/media and drag the created "oemlogo.mbn" into the archiver's window, close both windows

4. Put your phone into Mass Storage mode and copy the Splash Screen "Installer" into the root of the SD Card, turn off Mass Storage mode afterwards

5. Power off the phone, the turn on the phone into recovery mode, then go to "Flash Zip from sdcard" and select the "installer" and press Trackball to confirm and let it do it's thing.

6. go back to the main menu and reboot the phone

Congratulations, you should have a new Splash Screen

That may be hard as I don't know a Linux solution, however, if you can make the image in a format like JPG or BMP, then I can convert and upload it for you

Did you open the archiving program, go to System > Media and put the oemlogo.mbn file into that folder? that may be the issue, because it works for me every time

A good archiving program I use is 7-zip

Hang on, What I'm asking is that, in the archiving program, did you go into the system/media folder, then dragging the oemlogo.mbn file into said folder first, then put the zip into the SD Card?

That's Strange, I'll have to look into the file myself and see if I did anything wrong

EDIT: for me, make sure that the rgb565 file is 150kbs (that is what it usually comes up with me)

basically on *nix, you need to install imagemagik (for convert) then copy that script and save it as a .sh file. I edited mine to use initlogo.png and to convert it to initlogo.rle. but once you have convert and the 565 whatever file, just put you prepared image in the dir with the .sh file and run it by typing ./yourbootsplashconvert.sh (name can be wtfe u wanna name it ) and it will do all the work for ya. but like I said getting it change out is another story lol
