You are attempting to flog a dead horse, no-one has bothered to decompile the bootloader for the i9300 as there is no point, it isn't locked. Only one American model had a lock, which was modded to enable flashing, nothing else.

Just to change the boot logo is a lot of work, for something that lasts just a few seconds.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Dear BoomBoomer! Thanks for your reply!

Sorry, I haven't replied in a while, but I looked a bit further into the sboot.bin and downloaded a couple more to see how they are different and are still able to flash. What I found is that the only difference is their build date and series nr. and 4 blocks of 256-byte signature (not sure if signature or checksum or something but I have to call it something..)
So I guess I need to figure out how to decompile these 256-byte signatures and make my own... to become awesome!

Dear BoomBoomer, I tried searching google and xda to find anything about the american model with sboot.bin but I found nothing. Do you maybe know the thread or person that modded the sboot.bin of the american version?

Thanks!
Frank
