I'm trying to hide this Samsung boot logo splash from my tablet

enter image description here

The closest that I get was trying the method described on this post: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2529133 but after writing the PARAM back to the device, nothing happened.

Trying to solve by myself I started looking at the SBOOT partition on my device, dumped it from /dev/block/platform/sprd-sdhci.3/by-name/SBOOT and opened it on a hex-editor, looking at the result I found the "logo.jpg" reference on the hex result, and now comes my question.

enter image description here

Do you guys have any recommendation/tips on how to avoid the logo.jpg being showed on the device screen? Maybe patching the SBOOT?

Is it too stupid changing the hex from modifying the "logo.jpg" string to avoid the file being located?

  • I have the same issue on my Tab E Lite 7.0, it seems like they are hiding in different places now. You should look at this forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2529133 I thought mine was hidden in /dev/block/platform/sprd-sdhci.3/by-name/PARAM , I got all the files extracted, but the screen was not replaced :-( I don't know where else they hide the screen ! – user245708 Dec 3 '17 at 7:09

That's the easiest way to end up in hardbrick. Don't try that. Remember samsung has no Fastboot mode. If it ends up in HBrick and close you out of Download Mode, you're ruined totally unless you are a Samsung Hardware and Software Engineer.
