1)First find an image or photo. Any picture you can get on your PC will do. 2)open the file up in a image program to start the conversion process( if you do not have one here is a link...Gimp - Free Software Download | Freeze) ... select the image button in your program to scale the size( I believe this size varies per phone brand. A little research and you should find yours). for the HTC EVO its 480x800. there will be two portions A. size and B. resolution. Make the size to 480x800. Leave the resolution part alone it will be linked and @ the same value. 3) find the portion to view the properties of your file and insure it is an "RGB COLOR" image if not in the same tab as image there should be a colorize button click it and select RGB COLOR. 4) alter your image in any way you want 5) bring up the file menu and select "SAVE AS" type in splash.bmp (not splash1.bmp) (most programs will automatically turn this in to a BMP file after you have entered this in). If not there will be a button to select "FILE BY EXTENTION"when this screen comes up select "BMP" then you need to go to advanced options and select 24bit depth. "SAVE" 6) down load this tool Make and Flash Your Own Android Splash Screen with Splash Screen Creator 7)fallow its instructions to the "T".... For some users (like me) this tool will only provide us with the needed file type for our new splash..If your HBOOT version is 2.0 or more then you are in this boat... If not you do not need to read any further.. This tool will complete the process for you.) 8) after the tool does its thing it will have created another file in the same folder that the tool is in. It will be labeled "splash.img".. we need to rename this file "Splash1.img" 9) down load a "SIGNED. zip" (OR READY TO FLASH) file and extract it... 10) take the android-info.txt file from the file you just extracted along with your new splash1.img file and 7-ZIP them together. and then rename this folder PC36IMG.zip........................and if you have read through this entire post then by now you know how to flash it to your phonegood luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
