Hey guys! This is an app I've been working on called BootieScreen.

BootieScreen will personalize your Moto X's boot screen with a message of your choosing. Think of it like the Moto Maker service but with so much more freedom! Using BootieScreen, you can choose...
  • The font size
  • The font color
  • The typeface used (currently only uses system fonts. User fonts are on the way!)
  • Where your message sits on the boot screen
  • Exactly what your message says! (No profanity filter... if you're in to that sort of thing.)
Want to change your boot message? Just fire BootieScreen back up and re-personalize!

Want to remove your boot message all together? Hit the menu item labeled "RESTORE ORIGINAL BOOTSCREEN"!

Want to install a new bootscreen graphic but you don't want to fuss with fastboot? Just drop your bitmap onto your phone at /sdcard/BootieScreen/clogoDeviceBackup.bmp, fire up BootieScreen, and personalize from there! (If you just want to install your graphic with no personalization, just do the personalization with a blank message. There will be a quicker & easier way to install new graphics in a future release!)

Notice any bugs? Want to request a feature? Just wanna give me your 2-cents? Let me know here, and thanks for looking!


Notes
  • This app requires your device to be rooted!
  • This app currently only supports devices with LOCKED BOOTLOADERS. The reason for this is because it writes to clogo, which is used when the bootloader is locked. When the bootloader is unlocked it reads from logo, which is not something that BootieScreen is capable of writing to at this time. I am hopeful that I'll be able to support locked bootloaders in the future.
  • BootieScreen is open source! Find it on github.

I must say thank you to jcase for his rooting methods for the Moto X and his information about flashing clogo.

The thread Moto X Boot Logos has some good info on file formats. I'd love to see your app create whole bins that include altering (or not) the battery warning, and the unlocked screen.

Thanks for the heads up! I knew those graphics were all kept together but not much more. I will make a note of this info. I would really like to be able to support the unlocked graphics at some point.

Great idea about the battery graphics, too! I will put that down on my list.

I get a force close as soon as I open the app. Running 4.2.2, rooted, model XT049. I submitted an error report. Tried both normal and rw mode.

No, I am still working on it. I'm hoping to have a new build posted by this weekend but we will see.

I see your error report on Google Play. It looks to be the same crash that Cyphir had reported. I believe I've got that problem fixed in the upcoming release.

Thanks for your interest! I will try to have an update out soon.

Hey, guys! v0.3.0 is now live on Google Play and ready for download! I updated the first post to reflect the changes.

This update SHOULD fix the force-close that a few people have reported. If you are still experiencing this crash (or any others!) please submit a crash report and feel free to drop a note in this thread.

Should this work on rooted unlocked BL kit kat devices?

Tested on it, nothing happens...
