I was looking at the post on chinadigitalcomm about putting a custom boot logo on the device to replace the:

MID Dual Core A9

If you use root explorer got into the directory and find the initlogo.rle file and rename it to initlogo.rle.img (doesn't really matter what you change the extension to I think.)

Now turn off the tablet and turn on. Instead of the boot screen it will be black for a moment and then go to the 'android' screen.

Now all we need is someone to post a nice boot image of the Android robot logo or something and it'll make a nicer boot screen.

Oh okay thanks. Root tools has a boot screen customizer, but I've never tried it. If I have time I'll see if it works and report back.

Boot Animation Changer LITE is free to try.

from its description:

With this wonderful little tool, you are able to change the boot animation of any 2.0+ Android phone. The only requirements are an active internet connection and a rooted phone.


cheers

I was looking at this and it replaces the android screen.

What I was looking at was a logo to replace the Mid - Dual Core A9 screen with something like the static android robot screen before the animated screen.

Is there something that does this?

remove "Android" bootscreen: add this 2 line to /system/boot.prop:

ro.kernel.android.bootanim=0
debug.sf.noobootanimation=1

root required! do it with root explorer.

i think the "mid a9 dualcore" is a deeper thing, possible should make a new kernel to change it.

It's the initlogo.rle, you can change it to whatever you want. The rle format is tricky anyway.

RLE stands for 'run length encoding'. The original windows startup logos were rle files if I remember. Typically rle files are just bitmap files with compression (the run length encoding). It should not be hard to find software to open and save this format. Xnview does I think. Not sure what does on android.

I was able to easily change my initial bootscreen by

1. saving a PNG of a moose as a raw rgb file using xnview.
2. Converting the file with rgb2565.exe using the -rle switch
3. Copying this file over initlogo.rle in the root directory.

Now when I boot my device I see a moose. :)

What dimensions does the image need to be? 800x480?

I assumed so and made my moose picture that geometry and it worked. I have tried no other sizes.

Yes, I did several beautiful, colorful, images until I got bored and completely disabled the logo.
BTW Couldn't get it right on windows, had to use a linux box.
I Had changed the animation too. That was funny: The idea I was working was to create boot logo that would become the first image of the animation. But I'm not an artist and I think it's lame.
Now disabled everything to save boot time.

Any ideas?
