[SPLASH] myTouch 4G Splash Screens
Before we get started, here's the usual.... I am not responsible for anything that happens to your phone. Period. Do this at your own risk
TrueBlue_Drew has made this very
easy! Just follow this link
to view his thread for automated converting and flashing. There are a couple of other methods to flash these as well. Keep scrolling to find instructions on flashing through fastboot or through terminal.
Requirements to Flash Through Fastboot:
ADB and Fastboot
Engineering HBOOT!!!! (This is important! You need the ability to flash with fastboot in order to use this! If you don't know what fastboot is I would not recommend doing this! Fastboot can be risky!)
Since we got the ability to flash custom splash screens I went and flashed an N1 splash screen. I wanted a little myTouch flavor added in, so I took a little time and this is what I came up with.
I also got a request for a plain HTC splash screen, so those just got added in. I'm going to try to keep new ones coming. If you find an image that you really like and don't know how to convert it, just post it and I'll convert it when I get a chance (must be 480x800).
Just unzip the contents of the zip file to the tools folder of your AndroidSDK (or wherever you have fastboot installed).
Plug your phone into the computer (Debugging enabled of course)
Open a command window
Type adb devices to make sure your computer recognizes the device
cd to the folder where you have fastboot and the splash screen .img
Type adb reboot bootloader
Your screen should say fastboot
, not Hboot. If it says Hboot, manually scroll down and switch to fastboot mode.
Once in the fastboot bootloader type fastboot devices to make sure your computer recognizes the device
Type fastboot flash splash1 nexuscustom.img
It will say okay twice
Then type fastboot reboot
Stare at your brand new splash screen!
Requirements to Flash Through Terminal Emulator
(THANK YOU TrueBlue_Drew!):

1. Rename your 480x800 image file to custom.img and move it to your sdcard.
2.Open Terminal Emulator and type "su" to get a #
3.Then type this exactly as it appears and hit enter. Make sure not to make any mistakes!!!
dd if=/mnt/sdcard/custom.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p19
It should show you that the file has transfered. You can now back out of terminal emulator and reboot your phone to see the new splash screen.
Thanks to QTeknology for his original post with his Nexus One splash screen I used. Also, a most important thank you to reukiodo for his guide to creating/installing the splash screens which you can find here
if you'd like to make your own.
Almost forgot.... Nandroid cannot
restore the stock splash screen! This is a permanent change! If you want to return to stock splash you will have to flash stock .img. The original splash screen .img is here as well if anyone needs to return their phone for a warranty.
The next post contains the downloads. All splash screens are split between the two zip files to save space.
With each of the HTC splash screens, there are smaller versions of each.
These splash screens were originally made by JSZESZE
for the Evo 4G. I stumbled across them and thought that they would look awesome on our phones! Huge thanks to JSZESZE for allowing me to post these here! If you have any friends with an Evo, they can get their copies by following this link
I have a lot of colors up in post# 349
: Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, White, and Yellow. If you want a different color just ask. I should be able to make any color for you. If you want an exact color, please provide the Hex value.

Check out post 73
for a couple of personal requests.
These are a Cyanogen colored version of the myTouch 4G splash screens that were requested by jdkoren. Just click the pictures to get to the post with the downloads.
Then these two were made by other members and look fantastic!
jbrew78 made this one:
and this one by UntamedDeviance:
has a thread with a whole bunch of awesome splash screens. Check them out here
. He even does requests! Huge thumbs up!
