DO NOT FLASH THESE FILES ON THE ONE M9. YOU WILL HARD-BRICK YOUR PHONE.
How To Install
- You must be s-off.
- Flash in recovery.
- Know your phone—I am not responsible for any bricks!
- You are replacing a partition on your phone, one that has nothing to do with your rom, recovery, or anything else. Changing roms will not restore the stock splash. The only ways to go back to stock are to 1) flash one of the stock splashes in this thread, 2) flash a complete stock firmware package in RUU mode, or 3) run a RUU.
- These will not remove the red warning text on your boot screen. This text is not part of the splash image but is dynamically created by hboot when your bootloader is unlocked. You must flash a modified hboot to remove it. If you don't know what that is or how to do it, don't bother until you understand the risks involved.
- If you flashed a GE hboot, you will have noticed that the red text is replaced with a small padlock. This padlock overlaps graphics like the beats logo on some of these splashes. I am not up to redoing all of them to correct this, but if there is a specific splash you'd like fixed and you ask nicely, I may take care of it.
- Images below are lo-res thumbnails—actual splash screens were created in native 1080x1920 @ 468ppi.
- I made most of these using touchofjobo's online tool here. If you like them, go to his thread and click thanks!
- If none of these are to your liking, other users have also posted their own splashes in this thread if you're up to reading through all of it.
- If you want to show your appreciation, donate to xda! I don't need the money.
Suggestions for Requests
- If you'd like me to make one for you, post your request below and I'll give it a shot.
- Bootsplash images are 1080 x 1920px. Graphic files you'd like to convert need to be at least 1200px high and preferably at least 2000px. This is so I have room for editing for best effect. Anything under 1600px high or so is going to look less sharp than one that is large enough because I have to stretch it to fit. (Note: Resizing a 600px image to be 2000px isn't going to help here—it needs to be large enough in the original.)
- There are often larger versions of images you may have—you can use Google Image Search to find them (select Search Tools>Size>Larger than 2MP).
- Images that are too small may look blurry or pixelated when converted to bootsplashes. There is nothing I can do about this.
Too Lazy to Sort Through All the Posts?
- You can download every one of my splashes here. Includes the jpg files suitable for wallpaper use. (Note: Might not include the most recent splashes if I've done a bunch recently and haven't had time to update this file. Just check the edit timestamp on the OP against my last post in the thread.)
- I've taken down a few splashes that were one-offs for someone, or that got <10 downloads. These splashes are still available in this zip file.
Will These Work on Other HTC Phones?
- I have only installed these one my One (M7), so I do not guarantee—or recommend—flashing them on anything else. That being said, some brave folks have tried anyway.
- They do not work on the M8 because the partition layout is not the same. THEY WILL HARD-BRICK A ONE M9 because the dd command will write the splash image to your aboot partition. While the files are sized correctly, the installation script will not work correctly. However, the zip files can be modified to work in fastboot; more on that here.
- These have been confirmed to work on the One Max and Droid DNA as they share the same resolution and similar partition layouts.
- They will not work on the One Mini because it has a different screen resolution. However, the partition layout is similar enough that the zip files will work if the splash images are sized down (you need the right application to do this, though it's not difficult). I have made a couple of Mini splashes in this thread; you can find them on pages 68 and 69. I can resize my splashes upon request.
- They will also not work on either One X model (Evita or Endeavour), or the One X+, because the script writes to the wrong partition. It will likely just fail on the Evita, but could potentially soft-brick your Endeavour or One X+. (And even if the splash went to the right partition, the resolution is wrong so it would be distorted.)
