Care to share the process of making it Doctor?
Sure! I'd be happy to!
First of all you need:
-Your Splash Image (bmp, jpg, gif whatever with 240x320 pixels)
-nb2nbf_tornado.exe (found in i-mate SP5 1.5.333 ROM's) (attached)
-nb_image_converter.exe (found on the interweb somewhere)
open up nb_image_converter.exe and load your image. then save as .nb
fire up nb2nbf_tornado.exe, You do not need to set a language or version. Set the CID to 11111111 and choose where you want your output file to go. then check File #1 and locate where you save your nb file from earlier. under image name select splash screen. press translate and it will creat your own nbf
Then simply bundle it in a directory with all the other files youll find in RUU_NO_NBF.zip file attached and run ROM_Update_Utility.exe
As said in the first post it'll seem like a normal rom update but will be 100x faster as your only flashing the splashscreen and will ONLY change your splash screen leaving the OS as it is.
Your own custom splash nbf
EDIT: Attached files (D'oh!)
EDIT 2: @ Paul - I have no idea whether the nbf will work for a hermes. however it is the same screen ressolution so i'll look at a htc wizard rom and see what i come up with
