If you wish to change your Splash screen to something else here are some alternatives, these are in the form of an update zip file that need to be flashed with Clockwork Mod Recovery

Huawei Ascend (as seen in the boot animation) (preview)

hwu8815_splash_huaweiascend-update-signed.zip MD5 : 62362f364b2aee07c685632f72a2f94e If you wish to make your own, you need a 480x800 PNG file and ffmpeg, like so:
ffmpeg -i logo.png -f rawvideo -pix_fmt rgb565 oem_logo.mbn

then you simply need to replace the oem_logo.mbn in one of the update files and flash it

Lovely thanks for sharing. I'll just make a request that someone dumps their stock splash image before they use any of these as we need a stock one please thanks!

Thanks for this any what of changing the boot animiation?

I now have the Green Andriod on boot, but still have the manufacturer logo splash screen animation.

I had the stock ANDROID boot anmation (the word "Andriod" wiggling) when applying the new ROMs before applying the Vendor update.app which reinstated the Huawei animation.

Never mind, found the bootanimation.zip file and replaced with a custom animation. Works great now.

To easily change boot animation use the app ROM Toolbox.

Thanks a lot for this Sebastian. This worked on my U8818 (chinese version of U8815 with NFC) just to let you know.

this completely removes any/all Huawei startup logos.

(Android logo > android shimmer text (using GR1 888 ROM) > lock screen)

thanks Seb!

Hi Seb,

I've tried each of these zips with the new official ICS 4.0.3 but sadly they don't seem to work. I flashed them with TeamWin and there were no errors but I still have the default chinese splash screen.

Did I do something wrong or do I specifically need CWM to flash the zips or is it that these zips would need updating to work with the new ICS update. Sorry for the noob questions.

Thanks in advance.

Just a quick note to report this method worked first time on the stock ICS release.

If you wish to make your own, you need a 480x800 PNG file and ffmpeg, like so:

ffmpeg -i logo.png -f rawvideo -pix_fmt rgb565 oem_logo.mbn

then you simply need to replace the oem_logo.mbn in one of the update files and flash it

Anyone know if I can create this file (ffmpeg -i logo.png -f rawvideo -pix_fmt rgb565 oem_logo.mbn) in photoshop? Or do I need a specific piece of software?

Thanks for any info.

ps. running stock ICS and it worked for me too. :)

I think that must have been the problem when I tried it, I used teamwin and it didn't take. I guess CWM is needed.

Just flashed the stock one, quality of the picture doesnt seem as sharp as the original one. Would be good if we could get some more, im guessing it doesnt support animation?
