MoDaCo Boot Splash for Kaiser

Recommended Posts

Using a bunch of tools created by the clever chaps at XDA-Developers, i've created a MoDaCo Boot Splash for the Kaiser. Much nicer than the T-Mo one and should work on any Kaiser!

Download and extract the attached ZIP. Step 1 installs Hard-SPL on your device (CID unlock and no signature check for flashes). Step 2 installs the actual boot screen.

As with any flash process there is a slight danger of bricking if you were to do something silly part way through the flash - you do it at your own risk. It worked fine for me though! ;)

PS This process won't hard reset your device, so your data is safe!

Works ok on Orange Kaiser

Good work

Is it possible to change the next screen (the windows one ) to an animated gif ?

Looks great but...

1) is there a way to customize and replace the content of modacodude.jpg by something more personal? ;)

2) can you elaborate on the unlock step1? What does it do exactly?

3) is the process reversible with a hard reset (I'm thinking in case of a warranty claim)?

4) still amazed by the amount of work you put into this... It's clearly a great advantage to pick up the same phone as you when you upgrade! :(

1) Yes, i'll do a how to if you want!

2) Step 1 flashes an unlocked bootloader, that lets you flash updates not signed by HTC (such as a boot screen update). It also lets you switch between device ROMs as a side effect (CID unlock).

3) No, but they won't care ;)

4) :( I can't see me switching of the Kaiser for a while TBH!

A how to would be great so I could change my screen from time to time

Cheers

I'd like a picture of my son ;)

The TILT vibrates with the boot splash, any chance this will eliminate the vibrate?

Also, anyone have the GIF animation for the HTC? I disabled the startup Animation on my TILT, but the boot didn't speed up any, so now I'm looking for something cool to display instead.

Wait, you're saying this does the full CID unlock, without hard resetting my phone? That's the only thing stopping me doing it, as I don't really want to redo 2 weeks worth of app installs! ;)

Well... I don't want to hard reset NOW... But at some point there'll be an updated ROM that I want enough to want to reinstall. I just didn't want to have to reinstall just for a boot piccy!

OK, question 2. Can that Windows picture be replaced as well? The one that shows after the boot picture?

The quick and dirty way to replace the windows bootup screen (not the splash) is to replace the file welcomehead.96.png in the windows directory with a picture 320x320 72dpi res and 24bit colour depth save it as the same name above and use either resco explorer or create a cabfile to overwrite the permissions on the original file.

Silly question - does this stay in place if you upgrade the ROM (to an unofficial or official later version - not that I plan to, but there will be legal upgrades eventually), or would it need to be reapplied each time?

I've got a Vodafone v1615 - and although Voda has (largely) left it as HTC made it, they've disabled VoIP - so I can't get Skype to work. Will the flashed ROM re-enable Skype? Thanks.
