Hi,

I had the same problem at first and narrowed it down:
When the Splash2.nb files are broken the update will not work.

Sometimes the web tool generates these broken images.
Some are not of the right size depending on the input file format

Using the nb image converter to generate the nb files worked fine and I could update my splash screen just fine.

Hint: Change the Spash_Changer.cab to read only to avoid having to reinstall it every time.

OOPS

Any specific file format? Is it a bitdepth thing? Does the .nb file size change?

I might have to ask for example images which fail. The .exe version is OK to use for now, but if there is a problem it should be fixed before people find the same problem with 480x640 images!

Hint: Change the Spash_Changer.cab to read only to avoid having to reinstall it every time.

You can avoid having to copy it to the device every time if you make it Read-Only, but you still need to run it to install the image - just to clarify :)

Hi! Is there a way to do the opposite thing? I want to save/backup my original splash screen, in order to install it later sometime.
