Hmmm. im no dev. It may be possible in terminal emulator (im assuming you are talking about the splash images). im ure if there is enough interest someone may find a way around this.

8) Type "fastboot flash splash.bmp"

There is an error in the command. The right command should be "fastboot flash splash splash.bmp"

Look in my sig, try downloading that apk and installing it. Open it, and you should be able to boot into fastboot

You can reboot into bootloader mode with this tool:

Delete your fastboot files and try it with these ones:

It worked for me.

Sorry guys but im new here...

Have tried lurking around to find out but didnt find anything, really sorry if my question has already been answered...

Does any of the methods in the guide work on CM7 N28? I assume they do work on CM7, judging from the CM-logo splash screen in the first post but i just want to be sure about it before i test this...

Yes, they should work with CM7, there is no reason why they shouldn't :D

Its not going to damage your phone if it doesn't though.

zx spectrum inspired splash image & boot animation ... flash with clockworkmod 3

splashp.png

The boot animation is basic & it's not full screen. I want to make the flashing stripy bit full screen & put something in the middle too, but I'm lazy ... somebody else do it please.

I did a zip that will work for flashing splash images & bootanimations for the blade using clockworkmod 3 in the post above. You can replace the files in it with your own splash.bmp & bootanimation.zip

The splash image could also be flashed from your sd card using an android terminal, or adb using this command, as root (su) ...

flash_image splash /sdcard/splash.bmp

new improved zx spectrum style loading animation... you can flash this with clockworkmod 3.

The font used for the splash screen is from the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, if Sir Alan Sugar or whoever owns the copyright on that nowadays wants me to remove it, then I will, although I'm not sure how copyrightable it is, being so basic.

Any parts of it that I own the copyright on, I'm releasing into the public domain.

Simpel question to understand the zip file: Does a update copy the file bootanimation.zip to /system/media or to /data/local?

/data/local

The splash image must also be called splash.bmp unless you edit the updater-script.

/data/local

I did the manual installation via adb last week and I had to copy the file into /system/media. Doesn't it make any difference if it is copied to /data/local or to /system/media? It's ok to copy it into any of the two folders?

It does not make any difference at all. Its just one ( /data/local ) is ran before the other. (you wont get two sounds, but if there is one in data local, the one is system media will be skipped) (I am right, right guys? :D )

But yes, its okay to copy it into any two folders, its not going to break your phone, :D

Worst case scenario will be no boot animation :(

I take it you have the boot animation already? Then just use the above guide ;)

It should work the same on all ROMS (maybe cm7 is a tad different) Don't worry, its not going to kill your phone anyhow B)

Good work! Should make things a bit easier.

If I don't include one file, will things be overwritten blank?

Anyhow, I will add this to the guide, shortly, when i find time

Cheer again :D

I think if you don't include one of the files then that step will be skipped & the other step should still run. I've not tested it though. It wont overwrite anything 'blank'. So if you delete the splash.bmp from the zip then the bootanimation.zip should still be copied & the splash screen wont be changed, or vice versa.

Okay cheers for the info, will probably add today or Tomorrow :D

It makes no real difference, except one takes up room on /system (where your rom is stored) & the other on /data (where your apps & settings are), so if you have enough free space on system & are running out of room for apps, then /system would be the best place if it's a large animation. If you've repartitioned so that space is tight on /system, but you have plenty free on /data then that is best.

If you have a bootanimation.zip in both directories, then you'll see the one in /data/local/ so it's probably the best choice of location for a clockwork zip file to be distributed, as the user will definitely see your animation & it wont overwrite their rom's animation.
