Post Reply Email Thread
Note:
This is not bootanimation, this is the splash screen (the 'Lenovo' boot logo which is displayed when device is switched ON)
This is for Lenovo A6000 & A6000 Plus Only..
For other devices, please send me your splash.img so that I can create a tool for you too.

Requirements:
1. Rooted Lenovo A6000 or A6000 Plus (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:

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

1. Download & Extract this in computer: Lenovo_A6000_Splash_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.
(Similarly you can also change fastboot.png if you wish to change the picture of fastboot)

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


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.

2. @mshoaib7 who provided the stock splash.img of A6000

Which one you changed?
splash.png or splash2.png ?

If splash.png, try changing both..
I don't know which splash is used where, since I don't own a Lenovo A6000..
I just created this.. Not even tested by anyone else..

The_A6000_Splash_Maker works, but the splash screen image has incorrect colors.

Try the updated zip file, and report if there are issues...
I guess you downloaded the old zip file..
I updated it like after an hour after creating this thread..

(Or was it the old one that worked right?
It's actually a confusion between bgr24 & rgb24 color formats.
I couldn't find which one, because the stock logo was black & white and there was no way I could decipher from that)
So I'm waiting for your reply

I used the new one. You could've figured that out with the time stamp in my post.
And btw, I think its due to some kind of problem in converting jpg to png. I just opened the 720x1280 jpg image in Paint and saved it as png

And is it working now correctly??

BTW, your pic exactly has to be 720x1280.
Yours wasn't (Anyway, that doesn't have anything to do with color)

I used only the new one, which doesn't work for me. And, my image was in 720x1280 only

Okay, I've updated the zip again (to the old one, ie, bgr24 color format)
Download & try it now..
It should work...
