tandxcstar1, I was going through the same trouble as you until I figured it out by trial/error. Sometimes developers don't have the time to break it down barney-style so you must understand that you will not find answers as easy as you think. Luckily for us newbies, there are other newbies learning that are willing to share their experiences; enough said . . .
There is a flawless way you can flash your splash screens; however, you must:
#1 - Have S-Off(No exceptions) - I got mine using Sunshine ($25 worth).
#2 - You must obtain your modelid, cidnum and version-main codes before you can flash anything.
Note. I hope you are familiar with fastboot commands so I won't insult your intelligence.
#3 - You need to run the "fastboot getvar all" command to copy your cidnum, modelid and version-main codes into a text document(to be used later).
Note: I don't think you need to be CID: 11111111 to be able to flash
#4 There are a couple of methods I use and are error free, as long as you follow the instructions provided:
a. Method 1: You must have a text file named: android-info.txt
Depending on your model and cidnum, etc the contents of this file MUST READ as follows(DO NOT COPY ANYTHING INSIDE <> SYMBOLS):
<EVERYTHING BELOW THIS LINE>
modelid: (fill this info from step #3)
cidnum: (fill this info from step #3)
mainver: (equivalent to version-main from step #3)
<END OF FILE, DO NOT COPY THIS!!!>
Save the txt file and zip it using your compression utility of choice and name it: splash.zip
Secondly, if you already have an img or nb0 file(which contains the splash screen) add it to the "splash.zip" container.
The "splash.zip" contents should list the following and ONLY the following files:
splash1.img or splash1.nb0 (one or the other)
You can go to the following link to convert your picture files into splash screen images: tibook website(can't copy URL yet)
however, there is a catch...the zip file generated will contain two folders: cache and META-INF(irrelevant)
You must extract the "splash.565" file from the cache folder into your folder of choice, then rename it to "splash1.nb0"
Once you have your splash.zip with both of these files(nb0 and txt) files you can either create a copy and rename it to the correspondent hboot zip file(flashed using ex-SD card) or you can use the following commands to flash the "splash.zip"
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot flash zip splash.zip
b. Method #2
If you prefer the SD card method(my preferred method btw) you must find out what is the name of the file you specific device is looking for during the HBOOT loading sequence; for example mine asks for a 06PBIMG.zip; however your device may ask for a different name. Either way, in you place your zip file in your ext-SD card, it will ask you if you want to flash it, then you follow the screen instructions and then,
Let me know if you need any help.
