Well, I've found out how to write pandigital's logo file, which means I now get a picture of the nice Android guy when the system first boots instead of the Pandigital Screen. Unfortunately, it disappears after about 2 seconds, goes to the pandigital logo, and then goes to a custom boot logo (if you have on installed). Still an improvement, I guess :)I'll have to see if I can figure out where the second PDN logo is stored so I can kill that as well.

I had to use custom software, hacked off of Koush's G1 splash screen who was kind enough to release the source. I need to tweak the source a tiny bit more.It's really ugly, but it does work

might it have the same file name such that you can search for it?

Alright folks, here we go. Credit to Koush for the original, it took me a few tries to get the orientation and image format right.Requirements: .NET Framework, 2.0 or laterDISCLAIMER: Not responsible for anything you might do. This is writing a file to your internal flash that kicks off at boot, so there exists the possibility that something could go catastrophically wrong and you hose your PDN. The file size is hardcoded in the program, but you should check anyways before flashing to make sure it is the EXACT same file size as a stock logo file (about 1.83 MB).If this all sounds scary and horrible, just remember: This adds nothing to the functionality of the novel. It is the very definition of an unnecessary mod. If you do it, don't come to me complaining that your Novel suddenly caught fire or peed on the rug.How to generate a custom logo file[list type=decimal][*] Run program[*] Click "Open" to open an image. As a note, this program takes in LANDSCAPE images, and the RIGHT of the image will be the TOP of the PDN (closest to the logo).[*] Click "Convert"[*] A file "logo.custom" will be created in the same directory as the program. Move it or rename it to something else if you want to make a bunch of different logos, because it will always overwrite.[/LIST]How to flash a custom logo file[list type=decimal][*]Drop the logo.custom file into your adb directory.[*] Grab the file "fuse" from a PDN update zip file and put it into your adb directory.[*] Run the following commands.
  • adb push fuse /data/
  • adb shell chmod 777 /data/fuse
  • adb push logo.custom /data/
  • adb shell /data/fuse logo /data/logo.custom
  • adb shell rm /data/logo.custom
  • adb shell reboot (optional, either reboot or shutdown yourself)
[/LIST]That should do it! If yo have already done these commands, and want to flash a different logo, you can start at (c) since fuse will already be pushed over and chmod'ed

How much of this is PDN specific? I'd like to make a wiki entry to do this on any device. Using the Slatedroid Logo would be great for the demo.
It really depends. I had to change resolution (obviously) and also bits per pixel. I'd be a bit worried about just tossing it around, though, in the event for some reason a malformed logo causes the boot process to die entirely. (I fed it lots of bad logos when I was testing, but I'm not sure if every other device would handle it as well.)
