Note:
This is not bootanimation, this is the splash screen (the 'LeEco' boot logo which is displayed when device is switched ON)
This is for LeEco Le 2 / S3 Snapdragon variants Only, like X522/S3 (USA), X520 (Chinese), X526 (Indian), and X527 (International)..
For Mediatek variants, check Post #2..
For other devices, please send me your splash.img so that I can create a tool for you too..

Requirements:
1. Rooted LeEco Le 2 / S3 (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 splash.img:


1. Download & Extract this in computer: LeEco_Le2_Splash_Maker.zip

2. Make sure you have 4 pictures (same or different) in 1080x1920 px resolution in PNG format.
(It seems Le2 displays any 1 picture from the 4 pictures randomly while switching ON, so I think you'll have to use 4 pictures)

3. Now rename your 4 pictures as logo1.png, logo2.png, logo3.png, logo4.png & replace it inside "pics" folder of the extracted folder.
(Similarly you can replace other pictures in it carefully if you wish)

4. Finally, run the 'CREATE_LOGO.bat' to create splash.img and flashable zip file, 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
(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_splash.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 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:
Incase something goes wrong or device doesn't bootup, flash the stock splash.img from custom recovery or fastboot.

If some pictures are jumbled or do not appear, check this trick here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...8&postcount=18
(Or send me your stock splash.img)

Thanks to @Achyuth Reddy who provided the stock splash.img of Le 2 X526 ..

For Le 2 Mediatek Variants
For MTK devices, you might have a different partition for that called 'logo'.
Browse in /dev directory to find out where that is present.
After you have found out, dump the logo.bin file by:
Code:
dd if=/<the_directory_where_logo_is_present>/logo of=/sdcard/logo.bin
Now you can edit the logo.bin using this tool:
Changing Boot Logo (logo.bin) - LOGO BUILDER Program

After editing, you can reflash it by:
Code:
dd if=/sdcard/logo.bin of=/<the_directory_where_logo_is_present>/logo
If you did this successfully, please share the details of how you did it so that it will be helpful for others..
Or if that tool doesn't work, send me your logo.bin or splash.img, I'll check it..

Is there any known limitation in image size (not resolution)?
Samples are about 200kb at maximum, what about 500 kb?

update: ok it works with files up to 500kb.

update2: just for demo, btw it's a x527...

I can and I will do
But I'll have to recreate that one, because I made another one already.

Guess it will be online tomorrow, not to say 'soon'

btw. if anyone knows where to find that android font, that would be great

I uploaded the files to mega (this is first version). (link removed)
sometimes the images seem to be out of order, for example fastboot and recovery are exchanged

Maybe @GokulNC knows why this happens??

Thanks JamBax but when i try to open the link to Mega it asks to enter the "Decryption key"

Please verify it.

Can You share also the newest splash You made (if they are for X527)?
