*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

I think this is awesome. I have not messed with heimdall just yet. Is there a way that we can just swap out the stock image with yours(I have no clue where that image is). If it can't be done that way I will just have to wait for a flashable tar from Odin when you get the chance. Thanks

did not realize there were two of the same posts, haha. Anyway if you did not read the other post...I saw you were on v1.1 not the v1.3 that is now offered so I was a little confused. As long as you get the v1.1 like you are using and follow the instructions to the "T" things will work as I now have the google boot splash screen like yours.

Edit. So if I want to change the boot splash image it is not as simple as putting the new image on my SD card I realized. Do I need to go into terminal emulator and retype the script you show above once I have the JPEG in place and renamed or do I need to have the JPEG in place and start all the way in the beginning by reflashing the param.lfs file in heimdall...

Edit. I figured it out. If I put the new image I want into the root of the sdcard and flash the param.lfs file again and then run the commands in terminal emulator it all works the way I want.
