*edit 10.17.11 compatible with ei20

*im not responsible for your phone melting*

this is an update to the mod here, originally posted by kmalinich for froyo, and my version for ec09 here, but this is for eh09 gingerbread only!!!

if you are like me and hate the SAMSUNG boot splash, then this is a way to change it...unfortunately its not as easy with htc and moto phones..but heres a way to do it

things needed (taken from og thread)

*Rooted Samsung Fascinate (should work fine on mesmerize/showcase as well since its the same file on all) running eh09
*Android SDK/ADB
*Latest Heimdall (i believe its possible to to use odin for this, but apparently on other sgs it soft bricks, but if i get a chance ill tar up a version of this and try it)
*Edited/hacked param.lfs to flash
*New jpg boot logo size 480x800 (others have recommended it be less than 64k..but idkl)

How to Install:
*download file
*use 7zip/file manager to extract param.lfs file
*Enter download mode on your phone
*Install heimdall driver (if you haven't already)
*Flash new param.lfs IN HEIMDALL IN THE BOX THAT SAYS PARAM.LFS, NOT FACTORYFS (if you are using frontend)
*Reboot normally, if it boots into recovery/cwr just reboot again
*Ignore garbled text on bootup (you may even see weird 8 bit cwr logo spread all over screen, no big deal)
*Copy your new boot jpg to the root of your sdcard...must be named logo.jpg
*Open terminal
*Enter these commands:

Code:
adb shell<br />
su<br />
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/stl6 /mnt/.lfs<br />
cp /sdcard/logo.jpg /mnt/.lfs/logo.jpg<br />
reboot
i have attached the "Google" boot logo in the zip or a tsm one down there

kinda new to messing with heimdall. I downloaded 1.3 I think it is but it really doesnt have the options for the different file types that we are trying to push. I ended up going back and downloading v1.1 instead after zooming in on your provided picture above and noting which version you have. Low and behold the options are there exactly as you state. Did everything you intructed to the "T" and now I have a custom GOOGLE screen just as you stated. Had me a little nervous though to be honest. Now we just need a link to other boot splash screens so I can change them out as I desire. THANKS A TON THIS RULES!!!!

Didn't seem to work for me when I tried renaming a new pic to the logo.jog. it keeps reverting back to the Google one for some reason
