1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    [EP4D/FP1H/FP5E][MOD][ODIN] Change Boot Splash Image

    This is from a whole lot of brainstorming, reading, headaches & lack of sleep. I now understand Odin & Heimdall a whole lot better; & my skills with Samsung Android phones have increased a bit more. I hope that at least one person can benefit from having a modified param.lfs for a custom boot splash. :)

    Let me know if there are any ways that I can improve this post.

    Before you begin, this is for the fearless types that know what they're doing or go all out even if they're jumping into a tornado. Your phone may soft-brick if something goes wrong.

    Modified Instructions (from kmalinich's thread):

    Needed:
    • Rooted Samsung Droid Charge
    • Working ADB
    • Latest Odin3
    • Hacked param.lfs (attached & mirrored)
    • New jpeg boot logo size 480x800 (less than 64KB - test to see if larger works)

    Steps:
    1. Copy your new splash image (logo.jpg) to your sd card however you'd like.
    2. Remove your SIM card for safe keeping until this process is finished
    3. Start Odin
    4. Enter download mode (reboot to it or disconnect the phone, take out the battery, press the volume down button, plugin the USB cable, wait for the download screen to appear & place the battery back in)
    5. Extract param_mod.tar.md5 from droid_charge_param_mod.zip
    6. Flash hacked param_mod.tar.md5 via Odin3 in the PDA area _*ONLY*_
    7. Reboot into CWM recovery
    8. Mount the system partition from within CWM
    9. Open ADB shell
    10. Enter these commands:
      Code:
      mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/stl7 /mnt/.lfs
      cp /sdcard/logo.jpg /mnt/.lfs/logo.jpg
      
    11. Reboot and enjoy!
    Notes:

    • I've tested multiple versions of Heimdall with just the modified param.lfs & it fails to upload 99 times out of 100. I recommend Odin3, SamsungPST Lite, or redbend_ua.
    • The boot splash image only appears for a short while since the Droid Charge kernels have splash images, too. If you'd like the same image for the duration of boot, utilize an app or a guide to change your favorite kernel's splash image.

    The green are modifications I made that should eleminate some confusion.

    BTW, I'm running Tweaked 3.0 and it worked just fine.
