[TOOL] Verizon HTC One Splash Image Creator
With all the splash screen discussion and threads popping up, I decided it was time to make a tool which could help users create and flash their own splash screens.
Verizon HTC One Splash Image Creator
This simple Windows command-line tool allows the creation of splash images, which are automatically converted to zip files and placed in the 'flash' folder, ready to be flashed, which can be flashed by the second option. It also allows the backing-up of your current splash image, as well as extracting the image from custom '.img' files.
- S-OFF is required for this to function!
- Everything needed is included aside from the image you want to be a splash screen, and the on-screen directions are quite straight-forward.
- Unzip it to a location you can easily find and run 'splash.bat'. If necessary, run it as Administrator.
- Make sure you maintain the folder structure as it is in the zip.
This tool consists of several files, most of which I didn't create. Specifically, it includes the most up-to-date ADB and Fastboot files, along with the FFMPEG free software licensed under GPL, as well as 7-Zip, also licensed under GPL. I am not making money from this tool, therefore everything should be copacetic. All I'm doing is collecting them in one place, making it significantly easier to perform its specific function.
I can not be held responsible for your use of this tool. Flashing custom images generally can't brick your device, but if it does, the fault lies with you, the user. I am not liable. Use this tool at your own risk. This is for the Verizon HTC One only!
- When creating a splash image, sometimes it asks you to specify whether the destination is a file or directory. It's a directory. I have overwrite and quiet mode on, so it shouldn't pop up and ask that. It only does it about 2 out of 30 times.
- When flashing the splash zip, it sometimes tells me that fastboot flash isn't a valid command, despite it working without changing anything since the last time I ran it. I also tested it about 30 times, and it also only gave me that error twice. It immediately reboots and works again right after that without any modification.
- I have only been able to test this on the 1.10.605.8 software release. I don't know if you need to change the text in the android-info.txt file in the '/tools/' folder to the updated version or not. I would appreciate it if someone would test that for me who is currently on the new update.
v1.01 - Bux fix regarding folder structure.
v1.0 - Initial release.
Please let me know if you discover any bugs, or if you think you know why I have the two I have now. Also, let me know if it works on the .10 software update.
