Is it possible to change it?
which one the one that says Lg? if so i heard stories of staying away from it does more harm than anything else, but boot animation yes too simple to change.
Lame cause on my lame ass esteem we could put some really good boot logos easily.
I can't remember the details of the LG logo but I know that no one has actually tried it because everyone is scared basically. I think once you take the files out you cant put them back. Doesn't bother me so It damn sure aint worth it. lol
Boot ani though is too simple. Located in system/media. Copy and paste. Done. Just make sure the zip file is named bootanimation
Alright ill test out the bootlogo lol
what the....? who did he quote? i dont see that person in this thread at all and hes talking about games? looool phail!!! anyways back to topic yea i think it was pg that said once its buried deep in system folder but i gotta admit im also scared to even tinker with it cuz the way i see it if no one even bothered with it im sure its for a good reason lol
I know Rob owns the site but no clue about the post. lol
Tapatalk fail ahaha done it to me before. By the way that's Rob the Site owner
Wtf lol. Dont tell me i got hacked by that one hacker that hacked af . lmao
Anyways i think i know how to. Ill try today and tell you guys if i gotta get a connect or not lol
There's a reason why everyone's stayed away from it, if you messed up even a little bit, there's probably nothing you can do to fix it. You won't be able to boot into recovery, since it flashes the LG logo before booting anything, and I doubt ADB will read because it won't be able to boot. Maybe you'll get lucky and be put in fastboot, I'm sure you can still use ADB from there, but do you really want to take that risk?
How would that even happen if i never leave the esteem or connect forums lol
Its good to try on a esteem that has it's esn blacklisted
PG's Esteem that just broke would be a good tester being that we bought him the new one. He got the old one to boot I think.
ahh good suggestion hes probaly trying to be mcguyver again after taking a bet with elderly man and his jitterbug cell phone, something about the old man betting him he could never unlock his phone...
Well if you can convince someone to do it, that's great. My information may be incorrect, but I think I read a while ago that the boot splash is either part of the kernel or boot.img
That was when I was trying to figure out how to change the Ascend's boot splash, but I think it should be the same for most/all androids.
pg would know...he changed the boot splash to that tron droid for his cm7 builds for both the ascend and the optimus
You gotta unpack the boot.img and replace the ini. Something. Rel image and thaan repack it. I think.
there's no repacking only convert edit convert if ya go to root explorer or Android commander u will see an open folder called bootimages. It has like 20 files in it I stayed up late last night chilling with PG and shabby they both told me it's safe to mess with it and there's no way to brick your phone worst case scenario u won't see the lg splash screen but still boots up to boot animation. Now I ain't home yet but PG sent me a link with a rut that I'll share with u guys I'll be home in a few and I'll post it in the mean while this is what u should look for
All devices arent the same. Samsung def does it differently and I think HTC does too.
And yes, you have to unpack the boot.img and its the .rle's that are the bootlogo and charger images.
you can create a .png on windows or linux, but you have to compile it to a .rle in linux.
it's very dangerous and risky since we have no access to fastboot.. (fastboot is like the final emergency life saver for your device where you can manually re-flash recovery.img, boot.img files etc.. incase you ever broke boot or recovery)
the image files are not located in the system folder but in another directory found in the device itself, also they are in boot.img, but they only install to the device the very first time it was ever turned on and will not be replaced again by the boot.img, you must manually push them into the proper device directory, and if the images you put in are not the right size, format, resolution etc.. than you will be screwed without fastboot access lol
literally be holding a brick in your hand lol
there are far more risks than what i listed here, this is just to give you a general idea of why NOT to do it lol
ahh well seems i was misinformed last night ....... its all good though... and what am i looking at then if thats not the actual img file. cuz i was told by shabby that there was no way to brick my phone doing this and pg was there so im not sure what to believe now....
wait so they can be replaced with boot.img? i tried it before (with an HTC) (and also minimal experience lol) and it changed nothing.. just stuck me with the same one i had already.. the only way i successfully changed it was by manually pushing the files to the proper directory..
just in my 1 experience.. you could be right though lol
well dont quote me on that lol, if what pg said is true than i may be wrong about the whole 'brick' thing.. but it is still very important that the images are in the proper format etc.. I already bricked one esteem so i didn't feel that the boot logo was worth adding another to the list (if that is the case) lol
lol sorry... i shoulda read all the comments before i started typing my 'smart guy paragraph' lol but it sounded good while i was typing it out and possibly saved us from a bunch of 'help me' threads popping up hahahaa
