This is a simple tool/script used to convert .jpg .png and .bmp files into the format used for the splash screen on your device. This can also be used to make a copy of your current splash screen or convert a splash screen image into a .png for you to edit. You can also flash the new image using this.
(Currently this has been confirmed working on the HTC devices below)

This is my first attempt at a script. With that being said...Please leave your feedback and ideas for possible updates or any issues. I also understand that there might be other tools like this on the forum but the one I found here didn't work on Windows XP. Plus I was wanting to learn a little about scripts and give people another EZ way to mod their device. There are some things I would like to add and a few little bugs. If some people like this I will make a updated version with more things and options. All the methods and things used in this zip can be found here on XDA. I just packaged them up and did the script.

I found most of the information for the script HERE and of coarse have learned tons in my time here on XDA, so much thanks to everyone here!!
Thanks to Iriscience and the links in his thread for the conversion tools.
And also option94 for his help.

The flash/backup splash option should work for any HTC devices that use a 480x800 splash screen but has been confirmed working with the MT4G, G2, EVO.

REQUIREMENTS

1. PC with Windows XP or better
2. Rooted HTC device with S=OFF and Eng Hboot (if only S=Off you can use Terminal Emulator method below for flash)
3. 480 X 800 png, jpg or bmp image

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Download the attached zip by clicking the rotating skull and then unzip
it to the desktop of your Windows PC.
2. Create or find the 480x800 image you want for your splash screen.
3. Go into the "Splash Flasher" folder you unzipped and place your image
in the "place-image-here" folder.
4. Click on the "CLICK-HERE.bat" and follow the on screen instructions.

NOTE: At this time this does not support having more than one of the
same image type in the "place-image-here" folder when converting and flashing.
Ie: You cant have more than 1 jpg, bmp, png or img in the folder at the same time.
You can have multiple images as long as they are not the same image type.


I don't accept donations but if you like my work
please hit the "THANKS" button

Thumbs up
Reserved for images

I would like to send out a big thanks to all the people here on XDA that have contributed to this collection. There are way to many to try and name. If you see your splash screen here, Thank you!!.

I was browsing the forums and came across a few splash screens that I liked and that were requested, so thought I would add them here for the Glacier family to enjoy.
As I collect more I will put links to the threads I have gotten them from so you can give thanks if you like.


INSTRUCTIONS

1. Click on the image you like (it should open in a new window)
2. Right click on the image in the new window and choose "Save Picture As"
3. You can save it wherever you want (I suggest Desktop\Splash Flasher\place-image-here folder)
4. Convert your image to splash .img format and flash it using my script or the Terminal Emulator method I posted below.












IF you cant use the Splash Flasher/Converter, let me know and I can change any image to the correct splash .img format and post it up for you..

1. Rename your 480x800 .img 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!!!

Code:
 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.

Just remove the .zip from the name on the attatchments below and they are ready to flash.

Very nice... reminds me a little of the Splash Creator for the G1 that I use to make Splash Images for my wife's MT3G-Slide, but the nice added feature of flashing it as well.

Awesome!

Just to help with clarity, the description says 480x800 (correct I think?), the requirements say 640x800, and the steps say 640x480. Unless I'm missing something.

It is 480x800
If you try the wrong size the image won't come out right when you flash it. Other than that it wont mess up your phone or anything. I will make the changes. Thanks
