What is splash.img ?
splash.img (or splash.bin or logo.img or logo.bin) is the raw file in which the boot logo (splash screen - the picture displayed when the device is booted) is stored.
It is stored under the partition: splash or logo in many Snapdragon devices (might vary for devices)

How can I know if my device uses splash.img ?
This splash.img is found mostly in Snapdragon devices (atleast as far as I have seen) (except Samsung devices).
To check if your device uses it, just go to the directory '/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/' and see if there's a partition block named 'splash' or 'logo'.
Or else you can also check your stock ROM (or stock firmware) to see if it contains the splash.img or logo.img or logo.bin (Qualcomm Devices only)..

Where should I get the stock splash.img from?
It can be dumped to your storage by the command:
Code:
su
dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/splash of=/sdcard/splash.img
(Similarly for logo.img or logo.bin)
(You may also find it in your factory images (stock ROM))


How do I edit/modify/create the splash.img ?
Leave a reply in this thread by attaching your splash.img (along with device name) so that I can see what format it is and I'll try to create a tool for your device.

Here's an universal splash maker (works only for few devices; I don't know. Your risk) [NOT FOR ALL DEVICES!]

What about Mediatek devices ?
For MTK devices, you might have a different partition for that called 'logo'.
Browse in /dev directory to find out where that is present.
After you have found out, dump the logo.bin file by:
Code:
dd if=/<the_directory_where_logo_is_present>/logo of=/sdcard/logo.bin
Now you can edit the logo.bin using this tool:
Changing Boot Logo (logo.bin) - LOGO BUILDER Program

After editing, you can reflash it by:
Code:
dd if=/sdcard/logo.bin of=/<the_directory_where_logo_is_present>/logo

I've attached a splash.img for my Xiaomi Mi3 but this file is huge
possible to create a tool for it?
Sorry, but the splash.img you provided seems to contain the bootloader or something important along with the splash image..
Though I can create a tool, there might arise issues..
It seems quite dangerous, so I'm not doing this :(

here is my splash.img ,my device is lenovo vibe x3c50

Hi there,

Can I get a tool for the Android One Second Generation (Seed).
I already downloaded and install @kalvin026's Android One (2nd Gen) Bootlogo Maker but it seems that the program is not working on my 2 PC's (My laptop and desktop).
splash.img has been compressed as rar file and is attached on my post.

Thanks!

Great i also use your Tools to create Boot Logo for My Rn3 Thanks Bro,

---------- Post added at 08:24 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:22 AM ----------

This file seems to be empty completely..
Just open it using any Hex Editor, you'll know it yourself..

How did you get the splash.img ?
Using 'dd' command ?

dd if=/dev/block/{splash partition Name ex mmcblk0p8 of=/sdcard/splash.img

Check his video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t28MWNDrZDg

If still it doesn't work, tell me, I'll create one :)

What about AOSP Snapdragon devices like the Xperia Z5?

Yes, if it contains a partition named 'splash' or 'logo'
