Greetings HD2 Brethren! I recently created these boot screens in Photoshop to showcase our amazing phone's unique triple-booting penta-booting capabilities! I made several versions to potentially fit everyone'stastes and strived to make the boot screens clean, simple, and appealing. My ultimate goal is the assimilation of all HD2s (compatible with both Euro and US HD2s) (Muahahahahahahaha) therefore I have compiled fourteen versions; so pick your poison

YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.


Update:
1. Just for clarification, this is a replacement to the very first screen one sees when the device is powering on...not an Android boot screen.
2. Monochromatic and color versions are now available
3. 'Future-proof' versions (numbers 8 thru 12) now available
4. Added instructions for NAND Android/WP7 users who no longer have access to Win Mo 6.5.x [Post # 2]
5. This will not overwrite NAND roms.
6. 'Arc' Series Boot Screen # 12 added
7. Added two WP7 editions
8. Added Installation Video (thanks 96edwy)
9. Uploaded all-in-one download (post # 3)
10. Uploaded Full-Res BMP images (post # 3)

Instructions (Video Now Available) and 'Special Thanks' in post # 2.

Extras and Modding

Full-Res Images
I took the liberty of uploading the full-resolution BMP images of all of the boot screens. You are free to edit, modify and republish the images as you see fit (I would appreciate some credit though) or perhaps use them as a wallpaper of sorts. The file can be downloaded on the 'attachments' section of this post ('Boot Images BMP [Full Res].rar').

How can this boot Android from bootscreen if we are using WinCE to load Haret?

It's a Boot Screen for the device that is flashed using 'customruu.exe'. This will replace the carrier/htc manufacturer screen that is seen when the device powers on.
