As far as I know, most devices powered by Snapdragon Chipsets stores the boot logo (splash screen that shows up when device is switched ON) in a partition named 'splash' which contains splash.img

Is there a way to edit the splash.img file or create a new one?

Additional Info:

It seems there is some script/software for HTC phones to edit the splash image, but it seems it will set the image (picture) resolution to that of HTC phone's resolution.

My device is: Yu Yuphoria

  • @Firelord, The device of the OP has a mentioned Android version of 5.1.1. I suppose that it cannot be treated as a duplicate of your linked question – Tamoghna Chowdhury Jan 2 '16 at 14:21

    @TamoghnaChowdhury Android version is irrelevant here. Splash/boot image/logo is not dependent on the OS. So, it is perfectly a duplicate. Bootanimation, however, may very much be dependent on Android version. – Firelord Jan 2 '16 at 14:22
  • @Firelord, even then, the linked question doesn't have an answer. Maybe we could request the mods to merge the 2? (and get on with some research?) – Tamoghna Chowdhury Jan 2 '16 at 14:27
  • @Firelord I have specifically mentioned that it's splash.img for Snapdragon devices, unlike logo.bin (which is for Mediatek devices, asked by that question's OP which you have linked) – Gokul NC Jan 2 '16 at 14:49

I later found out how, and created splash.img for a few devices..
