Change boot picture - part 2

Change boot picture
part 2: replace it using splash replacer
This guide shows you how to replace the startup splash picture using motorola bootscreen replacer.

Tool you need:
Motorola bootscreen replacer
RandomSHX or SHXCodec

1. use RandomSHX or SHXCodec to extract/split the MP that you want to mod;

2. Open Offset.ini in folder of motorola bootscreen replacer, to check if the your phone model and firmware are defined in the ini file;

3. if it is defined, go to next step; if not, defined it accordingly if you know the offsets for your firmware. If you don't know the offsets, follow part 1 guide to find out the offsets.

4. open Motorola Bootscreen Replacer and open the flash file (the *2.bin file or the *CG1.smg file you got in step 1);

5. select the "Choose flash type and image" according to your phone model and firmware, for example, V360 R4513...ABR;

6. click "Load from file" and select your custom bmp file that match your screen size;

7. click "Save Flash";

8. follow my "RSA patch" guide to patch RSA and recompile the MP using the new flash file.

Hey yuet.. i made i mistake in my comment before.. sorry about that.. it was about changing the power-up and power-down tones.. and I found them in c/mobile/audio and i replaced them..

Anyways.. i was also asking something else.. and it's the custom-startup image.. i changed the animations.. but there's always the one from the bootloader.. how do i change that one?.. can i use this method you posted here?

oh. i forgot to mention i have your MP v2.2.1 .. and now i've done this method.. but everytime i wanna patch the RSA, it gives me an error saying i cant patch it..
Any suggestion?
should i decomplie the flash file from a full backup? i only did the cg1, cg7 and cg18 since i thought that would be enough.. am i wrong?.. thanks

hey yuet, well.. i tried to do the method.. but with no solution.. i got a different flash with no RSA protection.. and it worked.. (using only SHX and bootloader changer)
I dont know if there's a different protection with your MP..
thanks anyways.. Cheers

sarah's angel, I have already patched RSA in my v2.2 MP. You don't need to do it again. and of course you can't do it again. :-) just replace the picture and compile shx.

hi yuet, i tried like you said but it kept giving the same error after compiling and flashing it to my phone.. then i realized your MP is for BL08.D0 (compatible with 08.A0).. but that doesnt work with the SHX when you compile it.. I tried a different flash (with only the CGs needed) for BL08.A0 and it worked without a problem..
thanx anyways.. Cheers

You can use shxcodec to replace the BL with a 08.A0 BL.

Would removing rsa protection, remove a lock placed on the filesystem of the phone, (i cannot create any new directories anywhere other than c:/mobile/skins folders. I am trying to make a non my-faves phone, into a myfaves phone.) Do you think this would help, any suggestions?

rami, what do u mean by "lock placed on filesystem"? Please note that most of the p2k software won't show empty directories, you must put a file inside the directory.

i have a problem. Seems that i've done every steps in part 1 and part 2, but when i wrote the final shx it gives me critical error after "create the image" in RSD Lite. It's another mode other than corona,etc.? The HEX method i didn't understand... I understand how i'll find the hellomoto picture but how to replace it?

2nd Problem: In Yuet MP v 2.2 (maybe in others versions too) after mobile starts it's starting itunes too, and mobile responding very hard at commands(in the time that itune start). How can i erase the itunes shortcut?

3rd problem: When i insert the usb cable, or the charger, the sound style automaticaly switching to Loud profile and when i unplug this cable is switching back to my profile. Why? It's not usefull, because at my workplace i must only use the vibration style, not switching needed.
Sorry for my english...
Tnx yuet... Web
