    So I came across this on XDA and thought I would post here. Added some stuff so that it was easier than what was said on XDA. As always, do a NAND backup before doing this. I am not responsible if this bricks your phone. I just did it and it worked fine

    Things needed:
    1. Find an or create an image (.png, .bmp, .jpg, or .gif -- 320x480 is preferrable)
    2. Open RGB565 Converter
    3. Ensure that "To RGB565 (binary)" tab is selected
    4. Click "Open Image", select your image
    5. Click "Convert to RGB565" (RGB565 Converter will make your image 320x480 if it is not already)
    7. Reboot phone into Fastboot using this command: adb reboot bootloader
      OR Button combo: SEND/CALL + END/POWER
    8. Flash image using this command: fastboot flash splash1 <your_image_name>.rgb565
    9. Reboot phone using this command: fastboot reboot
      OR fastboot oem powerdown if not then remove your battery
    10. View the benefits of your hard work.

    I didnt create this. Thanks to sickbox over at XDA for figuring this out and sharing the knowledge with all of us.

    I used the jpg that he put since I couldnt find any that looked as nice as his did after converting

    I tried the exact commands u stated from the xdadevelopers page, and it didn't work. I have an LG Optimus V with 320x480 screen resolution. I tried using the "flash splash1" cmd in the converter, but that didn't work either. any ideas would be SUPER appreciated...

    P.S: What is the "S-OFF BOOTLOADER" i have to flash prior to doing this? :thinking:
