And what are the properties that needs to be met in the boot image.
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:
- unpack/dump boot.img
- u will get (raw) kernel & ramdisk.gz
- dump ramdisk.gz u will get cpio ramdisk
- dump cpio ramdisk u will get all CORE ramdisk files
- for bootlogo/bootscreen the file we need to change/add is a file called logo.rle OR initlogo.rle
- 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)
- once ramdisk.gz is ready use that one and (raw) kernel and pack it into boot.img
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
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!!!
