Thanks for some funtastic Tools, really.
I just succeded to create my own first, second and boot splash screens. Now my HD2 boots very slick with one image (Oh yes! my mighty Gamer-Nick and Logo! hrhrhr) through the whole process. Very nice indeed.
Now i need some smart gfx junkie to animate the second LEO_animated.gif for me...
Understanding and setting up everything for changing the first splash screen took me half a day. I also noticed, that explanations and comprehensive help for the LEO/HD2 owners are given only to some geeky extend. It took all my (limited) brain processing power to understand whats going on here.
So i decided to give back something. I will rather not be able to compile a smoothy one-click fix-my-splash exe, i cannot even write a batch script (well, yes, windows users are known to be a little numb on that part) but i can very well write up a specific guide. The one from Paolonio is already quite nice but i found it very frustrating not knowing wether or not that guide would suffice for the Leo/HD2. Especially on the calculation and padding bit i got very unsure of what i am doing.
Actually another stupid part is the lack of support for Dark Simons ROM tool. I was searching quite a while for a htcrt_devices.ini which includes the Leo. Plus, Mr. Simon seems to be gone somehow. hasn't visited XDA for a while and his host for his prog is gone too.
I'll probably drop a little guide within the next few days. I'll make it a pdf but with embedded fonts so people can actually copy/paste the lines.
Thanks again folks... so long...
I did this on Windows 7 64bit. Both directions worked flawless. I am currently under the impression that there is no fault with nbimg.exe on x64...
I attached a rough first version of this guide. I do not claim its any better than Paolonio's guide but i claim that it looks at it from another minds perspective and thus it offers more chances of understanding if one individual reads both guides.
Plus i think its time i put up the htcrt_devices.ini i found, which contains the leo info... please feedback on errors and mistakes and click thanks if it helped you somewhat.
New Guide attached. Please use this commandline to create your Splashscreen.nb file:
NBIMG - w 480 -h 800 -p 18400 -F splash.bmp
<-- mind that the padding might not be universal, i did not fully understand that yet. you might have to calculate it. read last post from me here
Substitute "splash.bmp" for the name of your file.
Make sure the padding is correct.
Do NOT use the -s
argument (at least not for the LEO)
