Why you don't post this on development forum?
Thanks
You should be fine even if you screw it up badly, as long as you type the the right fastboot command. don't try to flash this over system or something. even if it does go wrong, your logo would just be bad, and you could flash the default one that is included in all the fxz downloads floating around. this is a very simple tweak, so there is not much risk. worst case, you flash back to stock with the fxz and you are totally normal, but I see no reason that would have to happen. the development forum is more for advanced stuff like rom development

here is the bin file to flash if you like mine: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yye2cnbezuwwxcu/logo.bin Below are the steps to create your own super easily. If anyone does not have photoshop, feel free to pm me your image and i'll do the tweaks so you can flash it.

1. create a 540X540 image
2. merge into 1 layer
3. go to the channel mixer (image > adjustments > channel mixer)
4.select red output channel and change the red value to 0 and the blue value to 100
5. select the blue channel and change red to 100 and blue to 0
6. hit OK, note that the colors will look weird now, but will show correctly on the phone
7. save image with .raw extension
8. rename the output file to logo.bin
9. to make things easier, move it to the same folder as fastboot so that you will not have to type directory names, or you can type out the whole directory.
10. turn off your phone and turn on while holding both volume buttons, chose AP fastboot
11. open a command window in the same folder as fastboot and type
Code:
Select Code
fastboot flash logo.bin logo.bin
it will take a second or two, then when it succeeds, reboot to see your new logo!
will this remove Rethink possible logo which comes after dipping M logo.

no. that is the boot animation. this only gets rid of the boot logo which is the solid m. you can easily change the animation.

If you put the file in the same folder as fastboot you can just type in the filename instead of typing out a long path to another folder.

You are simply flashing it with fastboot. If you are gonna do this stuff, I would recommend you get familiar with fastboot and working with command line in general.

Anyways, just open a command prompt window in the same folder as fastboot and type fastboot flash logo.bin "name of your image.bin"
