Ps, Couldn't find an answer in the search.

I just searched it, there is a very decent guide here to set up adb and fastboot on ubuntu 10.10. I just did it and very straight forward the only thing is the link for fast boot on that post is down, search it on cyanogen thats where i got it from...let us know if you got it

Ain't that the truth - I thought I was going to be a wrinkled old man before I figured out how to change the splashscreen! I was so tired of the stock skateboards. Here's my new screenie:

I tried the original instructions and it rebooted my phone before I was ready so I did this in the command prompt (this was mentioned on the first page of posts):

cd C:\android-sdk-windows\tools
adb shell
su
reboot bootloader
fastboot flash splash1 <copy and paste file name here>
fastboot reboot

Of course this will only work if you've downloaded the program, converted your picture and placed it in the tools directory of SDK.

Worked great for me. I couldn't be happier!

Hi Friends,

Can anyone help me with TUN.ko file for specific DROID ERIS as per the specifications below. I am looking to run CISCO VPN on my droid eris and would require Tun.ko file for the same.

Please help.

When I attempt to insmod tun.ko I get exec format error and dmesg yields

tun: version magic '2.6.29 preempt mod_unload ARMv7 ' should be '2.6.29-bcb140a0 preempt mod_unload ARMv6 '

More Details if any required: Android 2.1 firmware version
Droid ERIS.
Kernal Version: 2.6.29-bcb140a0

How does one convert the images to rgb565 on linux?
The program in the op is for windows.

TO-DO in next versions:
- rewrite for Linux & Mac (into Mono)
&
There is two files, "RGB565Convertor.exe" and "librgb565.dll".

Any other alternative programs, or would someone with windows be willing to convert a few images and upload them somewhere?

If someone has some free time and wants to convert this that would be awesome

Here you go. Unzip, Do Not rename, follow the instructions specific to your setup (windows, mac, linux).

Enjoy and good luck.
