I merged all the bootscreens from the original boot screen thread in development. Over taking "aron4588" as the thread creator of this one. His original post is in 12.
Sorry "aron4588"

This is updated with the latest tool. (Windows)
I included a zip with all files you may need at the bottom of the post.

1. Turn off your phone

2. Turn on the phone into bootloader (camera+power).
Make sure it say fastboot in the middle if not hit back and it should appear-

3. Make sure your device is found in device manger
If you don't see adb device up top in device manger find the yellow mark devices
Right Click, update driver, and point to the location of the USB Driver
(Driver for 1.5r2)
If you have the "new spl" you're going to need the new usb drivers

4. Open and extract the below zip to your desktop
You should now have a custom and fastboot folder on your desktop

5. Open up a dos window (start>run>CMD)

6. Type cd desktop then cd fastboot

7. If you would not like to flash the sample images skip to step 9

8. copy and paste the command line by line
fastboot flash splash1 mysplash.rgb565
fastboot flash splash2 mysplash.rgb565 You dont get a splash2 option with the "NEW SPL"
fastboot reboot

Part 2 Making your own images
9. Open up the "create" folder

10. Run CreateG1Splash.exe

11. Open up your image in the program and click convert

12. Go to the folder of your images and their you will find mysplash.rgb565

13. Place the mysplash.rgb565 into the fastboot folder

14. copy and paste the command line by line
fastboot flash splash1 mysplash.rgb565
fastboot flash splash2 mysplash.rgb565
fastboot reboot

to build the file yourself go to the root android source directory (mine is linux, but it looks like this "/home/ryan/android_source"), your's might look something like "C:/Source Codes/android/" or whatever. Once you navigate to that directory (via the command prompt... just go to start > run > and type in 'cmd' and hit enter, then use the 'cd' command to get there... e.g., "cd C:/Source Codes/android/"), once there, simply type 'make' and hit enter and it will start building everything, it might take a few minutes to complete. Then just go into the 'out' directory, then it's under "host/windows-x86/bin" (i'm not sure about the windows-x86 part, it might just be windows or something like it, i'm just assuming based on mine), once in that folder you'll have the fastboot as well as all of the other binary files ready to go. Then you can just type fastboot w/e w/e and it'll work just fine.

Here's my updated bootloader logo:

It's kind of difficult to see, my camera sucks... it's my fraternity letters with the crest in the background. Here's the image i used for it:

Ok, before i go dual booting my system , as i have Vista x64 now. I want to know if i can use ubuntu x64 for this process or would it be best to use the 32 bit version.

Here is the boot image I put together that i want to use. Still futzing with it but this is the general idea.

Yes, you need to convert the picture.
Just in case here is the raw file.

Sure, I can provide the base image. On mine however, I customized it with some of my information, such as my name, etc. That way if it ever gets stolen, the thief will be reminded of it everyday

I really liked this idea, so I found the image at deviantart, and made a copy of your boot image, and for anyone else, I've attached the splash.raw565 file (zipped) to this post.

Cheers guys, and happy new year!
