Android Flasher needs you!

Are you an experienced Android user?
We need people to update the Pro database for each device, this means the radio/bootloader/recovery for each device. PM me for more details.
This also includes HTC Magic, Samsung Galaxy S and S II, Motorola Atrix, and Sony Xperia Play.

S-OFF is essential with ENG hboot

Features:
Multiple flashes without closing the application.
Deletes all used files leaving you with nothing more than what you had to start with.
Fully automatic, users only need to create a splash image or locate a recovery, hboot, or radio img.
Unified interface.
Coded entirely in C#
Now supports BMP, PNG, and JPEG images. Not just BMP like NBIMG.
Usable on your Desire, Desire Z, Desire HD, EVO 4g, EVO 3D, Desire S, Incredible S, Thunderbolt or Sensation.
The application checks image dimensions and the file sizes of splash images to prevent any errors.

Requirements for use:
USB debugging enabled.
HTC and Fastboot/Hboot drivers must be installed.
Windows with .net 4.0
Splash image, recovery img, hboot img or radio img. (not required for donate version)

What the application does:
This application flashes the specific parts of your device, ie. Bootloader, Recovery, Splash screen, and Radio.
It has taken many hours and much extensive research and testing on multiple devices to make a straightforward, efficient and reliable program to offer you the freedom in device customisation you are otherwise denied.
The app allows you to quickly customise your device in a way that is simple and alot goes on behind the scenes to guarantee you don't get caught with error messages.
The splash screen is the image before the boot animation, (by default the white HTC logo.) With this application you can change it in under a minute.

BMP should be configured how ever you like. The program converts it from whatever configuration you saved it as. I personally use:
"File format: Windows"
"Depth: 24bit"

Have you connected your phone in fastboot mode?

Yeah, will help on reboots.


I'll bring out my next one which puts your device in fastboot flashes and then reboot for you soon.

Doesn't work for me. Created a bmp, renamed it to splash1 and ran the bat while phone was in fastboot mode.

This is essentially same as doing it via cmd using "fastboot flash splash1 *image*" ?
But im a bit confused as to what the image needs to be. Seen .nb's, nb0's, .img's and .rgb565's.

it changes my splash screen to "three androids playing skateboards", but I don't even know where this image comes from.

Yeah, thats the basic thing. IMG files are what HTC use. I know they are supported. If it doesn't work, try the new one i just uploaded. I know it works on mine and a few others.

when i flash it, the image looks like its 4 identical images layered ontop of eachother:confused:

Check your BMP file. Save it again and reconvert it after. What did you use to make the BMP file?

    How is the bmp supposed to be configured?

    For those of you trying to flash a splash screen and getting an error saying ...

    splash1.bmp: No such file or directory
    error: cannot load 'splash1.img'

    you're probably being a bit too eager.

    I found that when you select your picture and it appears in a box asking is this image correct "yes / no" if you wait a few seconds (10/15 secs) then click on yes it works pretty much all the time.

    Was annoying me when I kept getting the error message, but this seems to work for me.

    (just a suggestion)
