Quickpwn custom boot logo help
I have been trying this since last friday, and I am having no luck. I am trying to change my boot screen with a custom one using the only windows solution I can atm "quickpwn-2.1-2g-3g" I have followed every how-to I can find to create the png, but everytime I end up with a blank boot. I will even get a blank boot if I choose to change the logo but leave the pwnapple in the main dir of the app. Is there any way I can mod winpwn to allow 2.1 quickpwning? I inserted the correct bundles, but cmw has put hash checking that blocks it
C:\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\Local Settings\Temp
and start quickpwn.
you will see it create 2 new folders (sort by date modified)
they will be at the top of your TEMP folder.
mine looks like this:
C:\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\7ZipSfx.000\Data
inside this DATA folder are 2 files...
those 2 logos need to be a PNG saved from photoshop, or the like, you need 1 x 1 pixel of transparency somewhere in your graphic... i like to use the bottom right corner. make sure its got a layer with nothing underneath it, and make a transparent section of your graphic, save for web, transparent PNG 24. and name it logo.png
you have to "replace" these 2 files before you do anything else in quickpwn.
once you replace those 2 files click the right arrow in quickpwn and continue on from there.
also, it is safe to redo your boot logos on a already jailbroken phone. you don't have to continuously restore.
just UNCHECK install cydia and installer, and just check the change boot logo box. and your phone will remain intact but with new boot logos
Nice howto, thanks, worked great.
I used a retro apple image from 'rolf haynberg' you can download the png from his site (just google his name)
whats the dir for vista users???

but thanks to Zurie for the excellent how to
i have a question.
he mentions you can replace the custom boot logos over and over without wiping data.
i have used quickpwn 2.1, my iphone is JB and unlocked...
but now i wish to replace the logos.
so if i use quickpwn and insert my custom logos, then go thru quickpwn, deselect cydia and installer, but select replace boot logos...
it will then simply replace them??
what about unlock? do i leave that unselected?
if i quickpwn the iphone again by simply selecting only replace boot logos, it will not wipe anything? I wont lose or change anything but boot logos?
can someone who has tried this verify please?
ijn the past when i quickpwn it wipes everything each time I quickpwn, so im skeptical that u can just change the boot logos.
