Hi, Is there any way that I can change the boot icon through an app.
I am rooted, but i really do not want to have to install a custom ROM as I hate the tacky Vodafone logo on boot and power off. It almost makes my phone look like one of those cheap £20 ones you can get that are terrible compared to this!
Is there an app that can do this on the play store like this one, as I really do not want to have to flash a custom rom as I have got everything set up just the way I like it apart from the Vodafone logo.
Thanks
George

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

If I did, Please press the rep_up1.png button, in the bottom right hand corner of my posts.

(If not, Press it anyway!)

If I really helped you, you could also donate to me. Thanks!  :)

(Boot animation installer 1.4.3 )costs very little and has loads of boot animations to install you can also edit them before the app installs it if you wish.
Bought this originally on my blade but it also works well on the g300 root is needed thought. J

If you already have a custom or other animation that you like, you can add it to the system/media folder overwriting the existing animation zips..

And if you delete those animation zips you get the default shiny android animation.

+1 on the "stock" android animation. I make a habit of deleting bootanimation.zip on all my roms.
But is the OP talking about boot animation or the initial splash screen? IIRC, the initial splash screen can be replaced in the boot.img ramdisk.
