    Changing the Google splash screen?

    1st post here so let me say Hi All!

    Is there anyone working on a mod for changing the google splash screen? I hate the black/white "boot logo". I would be happy with even just changing the google logo and adding the colors to it. Is this being attempted yet?

    I haven't seen anything in that yet. I'm sure someone will do it and post instructions sooner or later though.

    Tapped via Galaxy Nexus LTE..

    I've found a logo like it in a few places, but none of them seem to change the boot logo yet. Not sure if we need something to get into stuff much deeper than we currently have or not.

    Well hopefully someone gets it figured it out. I miss being able to change that at anytime.

    I wonder where that particular file is kept on this phone?

    On my fascinate the first boot animation was kernel specific and the second ROM specific, so if it is anything like that Samsung phone the animation is in the kernel somewhere.

    I don't mind the splash screen. I wish I could get rid of the little lock at the bottom.

    When I hear splash screen I'm thinking of initial boot, then you have the boot animation itself. The splash screen is kernel based, the boot animation is ROM based, located in "/system/media" and is called bootanimation.zip . It is replaceable but you have to be rooted. The kernel splash screen can't unless you swap kernels to one that has been or can figure out how to package your own in it.

    Yeah that's the one I was talking about. The black Google screen with the little lock at the bottom. I like it, but I just wish it was a black screen with Google spelled out in their color scheme. Black/white is too plain. Thanks for the info though. Maybe I can ask the kernel dev (franco) to see if it can be changed in his next release.
