    Default PWN Boot Logo
    Ok... I wasn't sure where to put this, but... here goes...

    I have Pwned my phone... and now I have the pineapple logo which is standard... I would now want to change the pineapple logo to another logo... I was wondering can if there is a way to change the logo without creating another custom firmware and restore the iphone again?

    My understanding is that you will have to create another custom firmware to change logo. Thats why i am going to wait for all features to be enabled in winpwn so i will not have to restore again when they get all features enabled.
    If anything was usefull a thanks would be great!

    actually, there is a way to change the boot logo and recovery image without restoring your phone. heres what you do (you need both PC and mac tho .... )

    - Download this Firmware Tool (more info here) that allows you to convert .png files to .img2 files (.img2 files are the files that the PwnageTool uses for boot and recovery)

    - Convert your custom pics to the .img2 format with names 'logo.img2' and 'recovery.img2'

    - 'Show Package Contents' of PwnageTool 1.1

    - Navigate to '/Contents/Resources/iPwner/'

    - Replace the 'logo.img2' and the 'recovery.img2' files with your custom ones

    - Put your iPhone into recovery mode

    - Open PwnageTool

    - Select Firmware

    - Select iPwner (re-pwn your iPhone if you already pwned it)

    - Done!

    Now you have new custom boot and recovery logos WITHOUT restoring your iPhone.

    Havent actually tried the FirmwareTool that i listed above bc I already have my custom boot/recovery images but it should do the trick

    Right.. this seems interesting.. I have both PC and Mac..

    I have tried downloading the FT.exe but I do not know how to use it. It just flashes the ms dos box and then quits when I double click it.
