Hi pof.

This is a great idea and I thank you for the instructions but I got to #6 and am so new to ROM building(virgin, in fact :eek: ) that I must ask....

In the htc rom tool do I leave all fields blank except for the splash screen entry? And where do I enter that? I assume that I type splash.nb into the splash1 field.

Else, do I fill in all of the fields such as country ID, version, IPL?

many thanks.

re

Is there a way to make a .cab file to change the bootsplash image? Also i see some custom roms have a 3d intro (maybe flash?) how would i go about doing this?

Thanks

Splash Screen Collection....

To change Splash Boot screen, made a picture 320x320 pixel 96dpi save it in .png and rename in welcomehead.96.png

Use Resco Explorer, copy, paste and replace the welcomehead.96.png in folder Windows, make a soft reset. :)

May be WE can all put some more Splash Screen, so we will have a collection eventually...

Just a thought :)

Animated?

Since the image is in .png format is it safe to assume that we can NOT load an animated splash screen??.. Also does flashing via the steps in the first post accomplishes the same as replacing the welcomhead.96.png manually??

Thank you..

jadehawk: you are correct that the welcomehead.96.png is non-animated, if you create an animated .gif and rename it to .png it may work in some programs that read inside the file for the relevant code to know how to display it but most programs including the wm6 bootup hook will not display it how it should so don't bother :)

Just to clarify that the original post by pof is "THE ONLY WAY" at present to replace the splash screen on initial boot of the phone, the welcomehead.96.png usage is on windows boot (some people have a 3rd animated .gif in between the 2, but this doesn't work on all models even with the registry entries in place, i have tried on my T-Mobile).

hope that helps.

Thank you

Great thank you for clearing that out.. for now I am just happy replacing the animated.gif file in the windows folder with something other than the HTC animated one.. I have tried to make my own ROM using the kaiser kitchen but so far It has never worked at least not like the really simple tutorials I have found here.. still waiting for a better tutorial with screenshots and all.. so far i will stick with the ones I get from here and use the sprite backup to restore the applications I want loaded in the ROM.. thank you
