    For about ten minutes.

    If you make a backup 1st, once you get back to rooted you can put your backup back on and be right where you left off. I did this the same way you are describing. I know they were trying to do the whole process a different way (to cut down on time and steps involved) but not sure of the outcome.

    Another quick question... The dimensions need to be 480 wide by 182 high.
    does that mean that I need to lay my image sideways ACROSS the 182 so that when my phone is in portrait the top of my pic is vertically positioned?

    because the 480 is actually the up/down when phone is in portrait on boot.

    Correct?

    i can make a boot logo only sbf if you send me the image you want.
    It would be easier if it's already in the right dimensions/format.
    480 pixels wide by 182 pixels tall 24 bit .bmp


    pm me

    while I seriously appreciate the offer I would like to do this myself... I have done everything else and it doesnt sound outside of my realm of knowledge, I just want to know if my picture is a vertical subject do I want it to run with the 480 or the 182 side.

    480 being the width of the screen when held in portrait orientation. The boot logo will appear as a horizontal banner centered vertically on the screen.

    yeah, I figured it out... I was under the impression the the boot logo I was creating was to cover the entire screen.

    thanks for getting back to me.
