Lineage OS Splash screen for Mi A1 a.k.a. tissot

Unlocked bootloader required for installation!
Not tried on other phone models, neither I suggest you to...


Splash screen is the content (images) on the screen that appears before bootanimation (the phone start-up animation).

As you know, once we unlock our phone's bootloader, we get an ugly message reading 'Bootloader has been unlocked, device could not be verified...' every time the phone starts/restarts:

Unlocked Bootloader Warning

So, I created this splash screen replacement to hide that annoying warning. Also, I do most of the tinkering with custom ROMs on my Mi A1 at night, and restarting with a white screen on full brightness kind of makes my eyes bleed, so every possible screen is now with black background. Refer images:

Replacement of Bootloader Warning Screen loaded before Bootanimation First screen on boot, if bootloader is locked later

The critical error screen, and fastboot screen are kept stock, as those were black already:
Critical Error Screen Fastboot Screen

Pre-requisites:
  1. Unlocked bootloader
  2. A PC with adb drivers
  3. A backup of stock Splash-screen (Refer Below)
  4. New splash file to flash (Refer below)

Installation steps:
  1. Reboot to fastboot/bootloader mode or start the phone by pressing [Vol down] + [Power].
  2. Connect the phone to PC and paste the splash file to folder containing the adb files.
  3. While in the adb folder, press [Shift]+[Right Click] and select 'Open Powershell Window Here'/'Open Command Prompt Window Here'
  4. Enter command 'fastboot devices'. This will return the list of devices connected. This is to ensure that your device has been connected properly.
  5. Enter command 'fastboot flash splash <spash image name>.img', where <spash image name> is to be replaced with the name of image you are flashing. Once the command finishes executing, power on the phone, and Voila!

Confirmed to be working on Pie based Roms(Personally Tested)

I have attached the stock splash file in pre-requisite steps, in case you run into an error or don't like the new splash or want to visit service center, and want to revert.

Wasn't clear with what screenshot was required. Instead Moved stock splash to the same place in the page.

Is it possible to make a black version of the stock Xiaomi splash animation like in the OP? Tired of seeing the warning screen as well but I'm currently on PE so the LOS one doesn't really fit.
