2. Open bin/logo_gen.py & change "SUPPORT_RLE24_COMPRESSIONT = 0" to "SUPPORT_RLE24_COMPRESSIONT = 1 " (in line 71) and save the script.
3. Now use a 1600x2560 picture to create a splash.img using the same tool and flash it.

If it works, please post the modified tool in your device's sub-forum so that it'll be useful for others

I found that the image needs to be in portrait, (Or rather create in landscape, then rotate 90 degrees to the right)

Here are instructions taken from here https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi-...plash-t3425054 and edited for the modified tool for Yoga Tab 3 Plus:

Note:
This is not a bootanimation, this is the splash screen (the 'Lenovo' boot logo which is displayed when the device is switched ON)
This is for Yoga Tab 3 Plus YT-X703F Only

Requirements:
1. Rooted Yoga Tab 3 Plus YT-X703F
2. Optional: Terminal Emulator app or Custom Recovery or at least working fastboot in computer
3. You're proceeding at your own risk.

STEPS to create splash.img:

Before proceeding, make sure fastboot is setup properly on your computer (just in case something goes wrong)..

1. Download & Extract this: https://forum.xda-developers.com/att...1&d=1507064918

2. Make sure you have a picture with resolution of 1600x2560 portrait (Make the image in landscape, then rotate 90° to the right)

Note:
In fact, you don't need a 1600x2560 picture, you can even have a picture with any resolution lower than device resolution, which will automatically be centred while booting.

3. Now rename your picture as logo.png or logo.jpg (according to the format) & replace it inside "pics" folder of the extracted folder.
(Or you can also directly edit the picture inside)

4. Finally, run the 'CREATE_LOGO.bat' to create splash.img , which you can find inside the "output" folder after completion.


STEPS to flash splash.img:

Optional: To backup your original splash.img:

Code:
dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/splash of=/sdcard/splash.img

Now, Choose any one easy method to install:

a. To flash from recovery:
Transfer the flashable_splash.zip to your device and flash from TWRP or other custom recovery.

b. To flash from Terminal Emulator:
Transfer the splash.img to your device's Internal Storage, Open Terminal Emulator & enter the following to flash it:
Code:
su
dd if=/sdcard/splash.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/splash
c. To flash from Fastboot mode:
Code:
fastboot flash splash splash.img
Note:
In case something goes wrong or device doesn't bootup, flash the stock splash.img from custom recovery or fastboot. I've also attached a flashable zip of the original YT-X703F splash.img

Thank you for sharing this! I hadn't realized that these scripts come straight from Qualcomm, although when you think about it, it does make sense
