Replacement for splash images (Nexus 5)



  • Hello.

    I am no programmer, so my contribution to the forum is risible.
    I, however, have tweaked a few images for the Nexus 5.

    Namely:

    — I have replaced the "Google" text and lock icon appearing when powering the phone on.
    — I have tweaked the bootloader screen images as you can see below.

    Unfortunately, I coudn't change the charge bars into something integrated to the main image—I don't know where those are stored.

    To install or test:

    — Images are uploaded to the phone via fastboot using Img Data Tool v 1.3.2 found at XDA Developers.

    Basically, you replace the images extracted from the stock "before" imgdata.img with the ones I tweaked here—copy entire folder content, including pos.txt file, which contains the images' coordinates—before recreating a new-imgdata.img to be flashed to the Nexus 5.

    — For the bold and the reckless, here's the imgdata.img file already packed and ready to be flashed to the Nexus 5 through the fastboot flash imgdata imgdata.img command.

    It's still a first attempt, but I think it gives the phone a more professional look.

    Disclaimer:

    Use images and proposed procedure at your own risk!
    As I said, I am no programmer.

    Marco.
