Note:
This is not bootanimation, this is the splash screen (the 'Huwaei' boot logo which is displayed when device is switched ON)
This is for Huawei Y6 Only..
(For other devices, please send me your splash.img so that I can create a tool for you too.)

NOTE: I think this tool is no longer working for latest firmwares.
Please check this new tool: [GUIDE] Changing boot splash image on the Huawei Y6

Requirements:
1. Rooted Huawei Y6 (any ROM)
2. Optional: Terminal Emulator app or Custom Recovery or atleast working fastboot in computer
3. You're proceeding at your own risk.

STEPS to create logo.img:

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

1. Download & Extract this in computer: Huawei_Y6_Logo_Maker.zip

2. Make sure you have a 720x1280 resolution picture.

3. Now rename your picture as logo.png or logo.jpg (according to its format) & replace it inside "pics" folder of the extracted folder.

4. Finally, run the 'Create_Logo.bat' to create logo.img , which you can find inside the "output" folder.


STEPS to flash logo.img:

Optional: To backup your original logo.img:

Code:
dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/logo of=/sdcard/logo.img
(Not necessary though.. You may get it from the stock firmware itself.)

Now, Choose any one easy method:

a. To flash from recovery:
Transfer the flashable_logo.zip to your device and flash from TWRP or CWM or Philz or any other custom recovery.

b. To flash from Terminal Emulator:
Transfer the logo.img to your device's Internal Storage, Open Terminal Emulator & enter the following to flash it:
Code:
su
dd if=/sdcard/logo.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/logo
c. To flash from Fastboot mode:
Code:
fastboot flash logo logo.img
Note:
Incase something goes wrong or device doesn't bootup, flash the stock logo.img from custom recovery or fastboot.


Hit the Thanks button if it worked for you

You're welcome to post the bootlogos that you created..

Thanks to @adam_s_459_ who provided the stock logo.img of his Huawei Y6 (SCL-L04)

Thank you so much for making this tool. I have been wanting to change that screen for so long as it is very ugly 😂.

Try method b) or c) to install logo.img..

I guess flashing from recovery doesn't work because the path to logo (partition) in the updater-script is wrong..

Or please tell where the "logo" block file is present in the /dev/block/ directory so that I'll edit that in the tool

I cannot find the logo file in that directory. I tried flashing from terminal and it didn't work. And I get an"external command not allowed" error in fastboot

How did you extract the logo.img from your device then?

If you extracted it from stock firmware, please find out how it's flashed into device..
(If it's a flashable zip, send the updater-script.
If it's a fastboot flashable firmware, send me .bat files if there's any)

It means you have not setup the fastboot tool properly..
Search and follow the instructions to properly set it up

So for some reason I couldn't upload just the updater script but this is the flashable file with it in it. I extracted the logo.img from stock firmware. I don't really know how to find out how is flashed on the device sorry. I don't know where I would find any .Bat files because I am fairly new to this type of thing. I hope this helps. Thanks.

As far as I can guess, maybe it resides in the misc partition..

Try flashing it to the misc partition.. (Back it up before you do)

Code:
fastboot flash misc logo.img
@adam_s_459_ If you think it's risky for you or if you don't seem to understand, please ask any other experienced ones in this forum to help me out here, to try on their device..
Because I don't own an Huawei Y6 device

I'm going to see if I can Flash the current misc partition in fastboot before I do it. So I fastboot I just enter "fastboot flash misc logo.img"?
