Hi everyone, I've been searching around for the Quietly Brilliant bootscreen and it was relatively easy to find but as the Hero boots by default with the Hero logo (which cannot be easily replaced with another) in black background, the white bootscreen looks out of place.

Then, I found a black version made by watzone69. But, the green HTC logo really looked out of place, hence I decided to make my own version instead. At the same time, I've also recompiled the existing white version into the original format that the stock bootscreen was in (including boot2.gif).

I can't post previews because the forum is being a bitch:
"To prevent spam to the forums, new users are not permitted to post outside links in their messages. All new user accounts will be verified by moderators before this restriction is removed."

I have attached both versions with/without sounds. Do note that these are only compatible with Heros that are still running on cupcake. If anyone would like to convert them into 2.1 formats, please go ahead. This is because I'm still on MCR 3.2 and won't be updating to 2.1 until MCR 4.0 is completed.

Credits:
RaiderX303 for the original white bootscreen, justinisyoung for the not-so-loud bootsound and phaelox for his SignApk script!

In order to use boot screens from 1.5 on 2.1 ROMs, you need to remove the current bootanimation.zip from the phone.
(On Villain ROMs, it is located in /system/customize/resource/ - others may vary)

Then flash the downloaded file; this puts the folder 'bootscreen' into /system/media/

If you want the original one with the little Android hiding behind 'HERO' download and flash the attachment below this post.



Despite what others say, the old (1.5) format bootscreens do work in 2.1, however, I'm yet to get the bootsound working.

Works awesome on the gratia port if you folow the instructions on post 4 its faster in boot, and the ugly boot animation is gone

Though the bootanimation.zip is not in the /system/resource part but in the /system/media folder, remove that and then flash the zip file
