Well here’s a pretty nifty tutorial I just discovered over at DroidXForums.com. Basically you know when you Boot Up/Power On your Droid X or Droid 2 device you see the “M” (Motorola Logo). This tutorial will explain on how to change the “M” logo to whatever image you create. Please note this is NOT your bootup animation! Also this will only work on the Droid-X or the Droid-2 do not try on any other device you may brick your phone. I’m not sure if you screw this How To up what will happen to your device but just make sure you do a Nandroid hopefully you can recover from that if something goes wrong.
What You Will Need:
LogoReplacer.zip – Download via DroidPirate.com
LogoReplacer.zip – This is the actual file you will need to place onto the root of your SD-Card.
FRHED HexEditor - Download via SourceForge.net
1) Create your image:
Using Adobe Photoshop, create an image that is 480 pixels wide and 182 pixels tall.
(i’m not sure if this is the only file size you can use but if it isn’t please let me know)
Whatever color the very bottom left pixel is will be the color of the screen surrounding your image
Mirror the image, image > image rotation -> flip canvas horizontal
Save it as a “.BMP” file click OK
Choose 24bit and hit Enter/OK
You now have your image
2) Editing the image:
Once you have the saved the image as listed above, using the hex editor, open up your image and erase the first 54 bytes and last 2 bytes of data.
It will show in the bottom left hand corner of the screen how many bytes you have selected
Press the Del key not the back space key to delete then hit enter
Do the same for the last 2
Reverse the data, using frhed go to: edit -> reverse bytes
To reverse the data you must select all of the bytes (or bits im really not sure) Just press ctrl+A, edit -> reverse, bytes enter.
Now save the newly edited file as logo.bin
Open the LogoReplacer.zip file (download in other post) And DO NOT extract it. Just double click to open it and drag the logo.bin file into it (replacing the old logo.bin file)
3) Flashing your new Boot Image
Place your LogoReplacer.zip file on your SDCARD
Restart your phone into recovery
Install zip from SD , choose zip from SD
Navigate to your file
Select it with the camera button
Restart your phone an Boom! Your New boot image!
Also if you do not wish to create a file via PhotoShop the LogoReplacer.zip that is on my server is already customized to the DroidPirate logo. So all you have to do is place the LogoReplacer.zip onto the Root of your SD-Card. Reboot your phone into Recovery via Koush’s Bootstrap Recovery. Choose Install Zip from SD-Card -> Choose LogoReplacer.zip -> Apply -> Reboot. And your new Bootup image should look like the one below:
