Note:
This is not bootanimation, this is the splash screen (the 'Asus' boot logo which is displayed when device is switched ON)
This is for Asus Zenfone 4 Max Only (Snapdragon Variants)..
For other devices, please send me your splash.img so that I can create a tool for you too.

Requirements:
1. Rooted Zenfone 4 Max (any ROM)
2. Optional: Terminal Emulator app or Custom Recovery or atleast working fastboot in computer
3. You're proceeding at your own risk.

STEPS to create splash.img:


0. Make sure fastboot is setup in your computer just in-case something gets ducked up :)

1. Download & Extract this: Asus_Zenfone_4_Max_Splash_Maker.zip

2. Make sure you have a picture with resolution 720x1280 or lower.

3. Now replace your picture on logo1.png and logo2.png inside "pics" folder of the extracted folder.
Note: You can put any picture format, but the names have to be 'logo1', 'logo2', etc.

4. Finally, run the 'CREATE_LOGO.bat' to create splash.img , which you can find inside the "output" folder after completion.

Note:
You might get an error like "PICTURE IS LARGE IN SIZE" if it's not possible to create a logo with that picture.
In that case, try any one of these below:

a. Try compressPNG.com to reduce no. of colors in PNG picture.
Upload your picture, click Settings, reduce number of colors to 2, Apply & download it & try again.
b. Reduce the picture resolution.
For example, this picture:View attachment 4073256 can edited to something like this: View attachment 4073257
(Hope you understand what I say)
c. Try some other picture.


STEPS to flash splash.img:

Optional: To backup your original splash.img:

Code:
dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/splash of=/sdcard/splash.img
(Not necessary though.. You may get it from the stock firmware itself.)

Now, Choose any one easy method to install:

a. To flash from recovery:
Transfer the flashable_splash.zip to your device and flash from TWRP or CWM or Philz or any other custom recovery.

b. To flash from Terminal Emulator:
Transfer the splash.img to your device's Internal Storage, Open Terminal Emulator & enter the following to flash it:
Code:
su
dd if=/sdcard/splash.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/splash

c. To flash from Fastboot mode:
Code:
fastboot flash splash splash.img

Note:
Incase something goes wrong or device doesn't bootup, flash the stock splash.img from custom recovery or fastboot.

Hit the Thanks :good: button if it worked for you :)

You're welcome to post the splash images that you created..
