png, raw bitmap, jpeg, color settings 8bit, 16bit, 24 bit?

I'm a graphic designer so would love to know that, so I could customize my own boot image.

I've created some animated boot images (the one that comes after the kernel boot image) but those are easy to make.

ok so this is wht need to be done:
  1. unpack/dump boot.img
  2. u will get (raw) kernel & ramdisk.gz
  3. dump ramdisk.gz u will get cpio ramdisk
  4. dump cpio ramdisk u will get all CORE ramdisk files
  5. for bootlogo/bootscreen the file we need to change/add is a file called logo.rle OR initlogo.rle
  6. once u have the .rle file placed in CORE ramdisk files then repack ramdisk to ramdisk.gz (with cpio, correct permissions... followed by gziping them)
  7. once ramdisk.gz is ready use that one and (raw) kernel and pack it into boot.img
  8. done!

on how to modify rle files well thats another story

BTW u need lots of tools/binaries for this to work (currently)...

Chumby_666 (aka aZuZu) is working on implementing all this, including custom bootscreen/bootlogo selection (and conversion) in his new tool...

he will release it when its ready... PLEASE DONT BUG HIM!!!! [or me ]

P.S.:
this is where aZuZu keeps/posts his tools/apps: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1090217
so i would suggest u guys keep watching that thread for updates/etc...
DONT FORGET TO THANK HIM IF U USE HIS TOOLS/APPS!!!

Really valuable information this.
That was nice to know. I'll start reading up on rle's and start making my own bootlogos.

Big thanks for the reply!

EDIT:
Found a nice cross-platform program that can take png input and make it into a raw 2565 format.

The site is in German, and explains a good deal.

ya that exact info is hard to come by i was hunting for that for some time..

there are lots of specification available for rle file... there are various threads at XDA itself...

if u want i can send u the conversion tools... but they are all command line tools ...

i would recommend that u wait for aZuZu to make a nice GUI for them in his app...

So would be cool if you could send it my way.

u need
  1. 5652rgb
  2. to565

source are available online...

the only issue is they require RAW image format... if u know how to convert them to png/jpg/etc & viceversa then u got it!


i was thinking of posting a HOW-TO for this... but then i thought that instead of posting 10 binaries i will wait for aZuZu to complete his app...

then it will be easier for all

Found out that my Photoshop can save directly to the RGB565 format, so no need for conversion tools.
