Hi guys,

I picked up an I9100 SGS II the other day and decided to extend my development of the SGS boot screen MOD to it and was able to port it the same day as not much as changed in the way the param.lfs operates. I know this works just fine on the EURO I9100 SGS II in which the param.lfs calls for logo.jpg but if it fails, you can always re-flash a stock param.lfs to restore the boot screen which I have also included. I have written this for (I897, I9000, T959, T959V and now I9100). Per XDA's rules, I'll just attach the RAR package as an upload at the bottom of this post.

If you appreciate my work, just tap THANKS or DONATE me a drink or two if you are feeling generous. Here is the read me in case you don't want to open it with an additional text editor:


Code:
Brought to you by MOBILETECHVIDEOS.COM and CONNEXION2005 of XDA-Developers.COM

If the instructions below don't make sense to you,
JUST DON'T DO IT!

To change logo again, repeat the whole process!
=========================================================
| Instructions						|
| ------------						|
| 1. Open Odin						|
| 2. Boot Phone into Download Mode			|
| 3. In Odin PDA select "SGS2_custom_param_lfs.tar"	|
| 4. Click Start					|
| 5. Boot Phone Normally and reconnect USB (dont mount)	|
|    You will have a logo draw fail! DONT WORRY!	|
| 6. Rename the Picture you want to use to " logo.jpg "	|
| 7. Run "MobileTV_SGS2_BootScreen.bat" from PC, follow |
| instructions. Keep phone screen ON, allow SU request. | 
| 8. Reboot and Enjoy!					|
=========================================================

NOTE about custom images!
480 x 800 and UNDER 100 kB
REMEMBER, THIS SCRIPT INSTALLS THE LATEST BUSYBOX INSTALLER, THIS MEANS IF YOU DIDN'T HAVE BUSYBOX INSTALLED, YOU MUST OPEN THAT INSTALLER AND ACTUALLY INSTALL BUSYBOX. IT INSTALLS AN APK TO USE TO INSTALL BUSYBOX, IT DOES NOT ACTUALLY INSTALL BUSYBOX ITSELF DURING THE SCRIPT.

ONLY USE THE LATEST BUSYBOX BY STERICSON TO ENSURE THIS WORKS BEST. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO USE THE SCRIPT FOR THE LATEST VERSION, BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THE LATEST FREE INSTALLER OR DONATE VERSION IN THE MARKET BY STERICSON.


If the script doesn't work for you, it should if you have ADB installed, a rooted device plus the latest BusyBox (no offense but it's user error otherwise) just use root explorer to paste your logo.jpg in /mnt/.lfs AFTER running the custom param file via ODIN.

Does the script complete? Be sure logo.jpg is spelled in all lower case and make sure you don't accidentally have it named to logo.jpg.jpg

I've tested with files above 100k but recommend 100k or less. I'm not sure if the SGS II has the same issues with download mode in soft brick scenarios which require a jig. It doesn't hurt to have one just in case. To get the original screen back, simply flash the param.lfs from a regular i9100 ODIN package for your phone...

Works well here, I've now got a starfield picture as my bootscreen.

Nice one. No issues at all other than the script complaining about the fact that busybox was already installed.

If the .jpg is corrupt or too big etc. will the boot fail, or will I just get the little green "logo.jpg load failed" message that I saw during the initial boot?

Cheers!

Hi Josh....like your presentation style on your vids (though I'm glad there's a rewind facilty on vids to replay what I've missed that you've just said...very rapid fire, but get most of what you're saying, lol)

Before I go'n flash a new boot animation ( I was always changing it on my last Desire...) Is there a way (or a need) to back up the existing Sammy one, or will it get re-written when flashing back to the custom ROM/FW should I need to send my phone back for warranty purposes?? (BTW....what's the latest with the 'hidden' binary counter that the jig isn't supposed to reset??...any more been discovered about it?)

I made a small donation for ya too btw....(1UE79898RF509935C) good work, and thanks for all your help for us 'numpties' who rely on you clever dudes

Cheers...
