However, these images became my inspiration and actually what I based my version on.
I treat my phone like a computer, shouldn't it look like one?
After a tireless amount of work and an amazing amount of help from both Cmonex and Olipro I give you a completed Raphael fake boot bios / post screen!
You must have HardSPL on your device to flash the ROM Splash Screen
CDMA USERS BEWARE - BRICK
There seems to be some issues with compatibility with CDMA devices and the boot splash. All other graphics work fine, I will look into the issue and hopefully find a solution.
As for GSM users, all is well.
If you have HardSPL, do not worry then, as this will not hard reset your device.
With a combination of the :
The ROM Splash screen - BootSplash.nbh - which will need to be flashed to the device with RaphaelCustomRUU.exe flasher (included)
[Both files attached below in Flashall.zip]
Start Up Animation screen - animated.gif which will need to be copied to your Windows directory on your device
Either overwrite the current one there or rename mine to Animated2.gif and direct to this with Advanced Config under the HTC Animation pull down.
Start Up Microsoft and carrier splash - welcomehead.192.png - which I have created 2 different versions.
Either overwrite the current one there or rename mine to welcomehead.190.png and direct to this with Advanced Config under the SplashScreen pulldown.
one can achieve a nearly seamless realistic boot up, resembling a normal computer.

Start Up MS / Carrier Splash (welcomehead.192.png)
Version A shows initialization of hardware
Version B shows simple blank screen with continuous top
Version C - Same as A just with the 2nd Cmos camera taken off. This is if you have a fuze.
If you purchased the Fuze with no cameras... well then... why?
To download these files you can download and unzip the flashall.zip file located in attachments.

Thank you dharvey4651 and K-Semler for graciously creating multiple CABs
After the files are in /windows by either copying or installing through provided CABs
flash the Bootsplash by syncing device through active sync and running the RaphaelCustomRUU.exe
I have spent quite a bit of time on this and I hope you all like them.
Any comments, suggestions and most importantly errors, please feel free to post them!
I hope to edit these and make them perfect.
I realize that by the time my Postscreen says the services are loaded, they have long since loaded, however this is all just for fun and appearances.
If you experience any choppy animation, try changing your gif speed. With either Advanced Config under the HTC Animation pull down or registry editor under HKLM\Software\HTC\HTCAnimation\. Try ranging the number around, 50, 75, 100.
Seems to strangely vary by the rom. I personally run gif speed 75, however I am told 100 is a good number for ROMeOS.
