[Boost Mobile] creating flashable splash.img?

    There arn't *too* many guides to doing this, so i'm asking here.. How can I create a flashable splash.img file to flash on my warp via boot logo changer? I know there are scripts to flashing it (such as splash flasher) but I feel more comfortable just creating the img myself and flashing it via this app instead of following procedures and having a big chance of screwing up

    edit: does rom toolbox support the boot logo changing feature on this phone?

    edit 2: does boot logo changer work on this phone? even though it only says it supports droid devices, I saw a video where a kid used it on the motorola triumph (vergin mobile). I figured if it worked on a device it didn't list as supported it might work on this.

    I have actually regained interest in trying to customize my splash image before boot anim. However I don't see any partition where the splash.img is located. I could only find an upside down version of it called splash.bmp in one of the big 3 partitions.. Would I just have to replace that?

    The actual files reside in the ramdisk of the kernel and they are initlogo.rle and logo.bmp since we dont know where the splash image is located then we would have to edit those files the .rle is a raw image file its uncompressed and can only be opened by android

    crap.. no idea where it is? And logo.bmp or the .rle file isn't it?

    Yeah ramdisk is where I found logo.bmp and wasn't sure if that was it or not

    those are the actual files, as far as our phone goes. those two files get built during boot i believe and then moved to the location where the splash.img resides. If we can get the official update from the update tool there is a splash.img in it. and it should tell us in the script where it gets flashed too

    Are we able to do something like what Woodstock did when he captured the update? How would you do something like that?

    Splash IMG gets split into its own partition, I don't remember the mmcblk, but if you do an adb pull of those, you'll find it, I would still just edit the ramdisk

    I don't think it compiled correctly... the colors came out weird and then it cut off and rebooted into recovery... nothing every goes right for me the first time... :-(

    I know... but it pissed me off... I worked on finding out how to do it for 3 hours last night and another 3 hours this morning and all I got out of it was a headache... I have a question though... before I extracted the ram disk the boot.img was like 16 or 15mbs... but after I repacked it it was 5mbs... is this normal? Or is that where the problem is?

    You were modifing the ram disk? It shouldnt drop in size that much unless you removed and edited a ton of stuff

    All I did was change out the logo.bmp... I think I see the problem... the ram disk wont extract fully... and all the folders are empty...
