Found it!


It is inside the boot.img ^^
When you unpack boot.img you get the ramdisk and inside the ramdisk there is initlogo.rle.

This is the Android 3.0 screen.

Now its time to find out how to play with it

Yep I flashed some custom images too


Just seems there is no way to completely skip it.
When I just delete the file I get a black screen with ANDROID on the left...

And my logo file is not displayes correctly atm, trying to figure out why

EDIT: YAY, everything works fine now ^^
I made a little Video of my customized Boot Process:

Nosferatu

Forgive this question from a newbie to the Hannspad and customisation if this seems a silly question but I simply love that Droid eating the apple and would love to use that.

Is it available to download somewhere?

Thanks

Nosferatu, do you mind pming your original logo.bmp and your initlogo.rle?

I'm working on a soft and i've found some weird bugs:
- the initlogo.rle is _always_ vertically flipped,
- the image is shifted, around 20 pixels to the left,
- sometimes, the colors are mixed up,
- sometimes, some part of the palette is displayed as few pixels in the upper left corner.

Yet i don't know if those issues are either related to the hannspad RLE decoding routine, or the to565 encrypting one...
Maybe the regular RLE encoder doesn't suit our hannspad... it might need to encrypt from the start -> EOF. All the versions i've tested are working backwards (from the end of the file -> begining).

Anyone willing to give a hand is welcome

No problem, I´ll sent it to you somewhen this evening.
I´m not on my home computer right now, but when I´m back I´ll do it.

I´ve also had some problems with the output .rle file.
But after the third or fourth try it worked.
I´ll try to find out what made the difference.

I think I used a jpeg to convert instead of a bmp but I´m not a 100% sure.
But I did it with to565 so it should not be a problem there.

Ok, it seems that i've tracked down and fixed my issues. Might come with a quick solution soon.
By the way, it also seems that i was wrong, the right size for the 1st splash screen is 1024x600, not 1024x655.

You're welcome nente


@lemarcusio: not sure what you meant, can you please elaborate a little bit.

By the way, my app is done.

At least the part that ease the creation of the 2nd splash screen.Still need to tweak some stuff with the ADB/APX mode.

Hey Kameo, any chance of an update on how you managed to change the Flashback logo or a link to the software you wrote? I've researched how to unpack, edit, and re-pack boot images but it seems ridiculously complicated using perl scripts and hex editors. A simple tool would be amazing.

[edit]

Ah never mind, found the answer here for anyone interested...

I use Shady File Manager (root) Free to access the system/media folder to replace the bootanimation.zip.

Tried QtADB but whilst it would recognise my phone, it would not see the Hannspad (TeamDRH ICS 1.2 ROM)
