I would like to request users to post all there boot images in a single thread for all other users. and i would also request a boot image that is the Gucci and FBI boot image modded for mytouch that is available in the dream forum, i can post them if you can't find coz with those images i can make a perfect boot ROM(special Hero) highly modded and highly cool if anybody can mod the images for my touch or just use the name magic. with that if done i can make a secure and cool hero ROM that will run as fast as cyanogen's and Good boot and graphics



This is updated with the latest tool. (Windows)
I included a zip with all files you may need at the bottom of the post.

1. Turn off your phone

2. Turn on the phone into bootloader (camera+power).
Make sure it say fastboot in the middle if not hit back and it should appear-

3. Make sure your device is found in device manger
If you don't see adb device up top in device manger find the yellow mark devices
Right Click, update driver, and point to the location of the USB Driver
(http://dl.google.com/android/android_usb_windows.zip)

4. Open and extract the below zip to your desktop
You should now have a custom and fastboot folder on your desktop

5. Open up a dos window (start>run>CMD)

6. Type cd desktop then cd fastboot

7. If you would not like to flash the sample images skip to step 9

8. copy and paste the command line by line
fastboot flash splash1 mysplash.rgb565
fastboot flash splash2 mysplash.rgb565
fastboot reboot

Part 2 Making your own images
9. Open up the "create" folder

10. Run CreateG1Splash.exe

11. Open up your image in the program and click convert

12. Go to the folder of your images and their you will find mysplash.rgb565

13. Place the mysplash.rgb565 into the fastboot folder

14. copy and paste the command line by line
fastboot flash splash1 mysplash.rgb565
fastboot flash splash2 mysplash.rgb565 (maybe the mytouch or magic spl does not have splash2 partition. dont panic if it gives any error. it cannot brick the phone)
fastboot reboot

i just copied it from the dream forum so credits to them

Here's one for ya
myBoot.zip has both a jpg and the raw565 file. Enjoy

edit: Also decided to add the original boot image that spawned this - myOriginalBoot.zip

edit: I finally got that peeing Andy working on this thing! framework-res.apk attached. You need to do the following:

Update your 32b phone to Cyanogen 4.1.2.1
Unzip framework-res.apk from the framework-apk.zip attachment
From a shell, run:
adb remount
adb push /path/to/framework-res.apk /system/framework/framework.apk
Now reboot your phone and enjoy your custom boot splash followed by the animation of Andy peeing on an apple that looks suspiciously familiar.

Note - I take no credit for the images you see here. I simply compiled them into boot screens for your enjoyment.
