I like the idea of custom splash, but obviously it's not life or death, you seem to be playing up the possible bricking aspect of this, is adding SPL that much more dangerous than using the normal update.zips?

Also, will this be in MoDaCo 3? I might wait until then if it is.

The SPL will never be bundled with MCR, because of the danger of bricking. Better that MCR is 100% safe!

Cool cool, all seemed to work out ok for me and be easy enough, but I like the idea of staying safe.

So, does SPL supersede ROM updates, or I need to repeat the SPL install each time I update MoDaCo?

you quoted pauls message that the spl is NOT included in the rom (and therefore will not be changed unless you explicitly do so), so probably not.

Hey man, long time no speak indeed, lol!

Yeah, if you flash back to the stock ROM via RUU, it also flashes the stock SPL.

Is it safe (well no flashing process is safe, especially SPL flashing) to flash this S-OFF SPL onto my Hero?

I'm running the .0004 stock SPL (white unbranded SIM unlocked HERO, UK version), 63.18.55.06JU_6.35.08.29 radio, RA 1.3.2 recovery, and MCR 3.0.

Should I revert to some other radio version before I flash this SPL?


Thanx in advance!

WARNING

A PROBLEM FLASHING THE SPL CAN BRICK YOUR DEVICE - as such, proceed with caution. Don't flash this unless you need it, flash at your own risk, flash only to a GSM Hero and do not interrupt the flashing process (which happens on the first reboot after applying the zip). YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!


Is this danger covered by a Nandroid backup? Will a Nandroid restore 'roll back' the change in SPL?

I'd like to have a custom flash, so was won dering if anyone could help here. I have a network unlocked HTC Hero. I am running MCR 3.0 with TCK 1.91. Which is all excellent.

I'd like to flash this. I understand there's a risk that it could break my phone, but in my particular circumstance, should it just be a case of flashing the update.zip from Amon RA recovery image as for a normal ROM or Kernel update?

cheers,

James

I'm confused.

I flashed the SPL no problems. I then followed the instructions to apply a new splashscreen using fastboot in cmd and it hangs on 'Waiting For Device'.

Sits there until interrupted. Yes I was booted into recovery and I can mount the SD card (gathering that USB Drivers are working?).

I have tried it on Windows 7 and Windows XP due to known incompatibility.

Any help would be great,

Jazzjunkz.

EDIT: No worries, figured it out for myself.

Why would you want to do that? If you want to get your phone back to original state then flash a RUU.
