    Default Changing the start up image?
    I was going throught folders and i got to /system/Library/coreservices/springboard.app and i found a file called applelogo. I was wondering if you changed that if that new pic would be the stArtup amage. Because thats the only place i see that logo is the startup? Does anyone no?

    You cannot currently change the boot logo on most devices. Although I think the newest redsn0w added this to old bootrom 3GS. Anything newer is a no go at the moment.

    If you change that image why doesnt it work? It uses a image to display and that image is the only place i see is when you turn on a phone? Out of all the stuff we can do we cant change a logo haha

    You can change the image at that location but it won't change the startup image, it's somewhere else probably without a png tag where the OS inserts the png on the end and it uses that

    I don't know how to set it up manually, but redsn0w-win 0.9.4 on the 3G gives you the option to change the boot screen and the restore screen. Later I'll see if I can find the file and swap it out. Here's my startup image:

    I guess your talking of applelogo.png in springboard.app? If so that isn't the boot image it is the image you will see if you "reset all settings" in settings app..

    The boot image isnt kept in the regular file system. It is kept in the nor I believe. That is why a full access untethered bootrom exploit is needed to change it. Which is why redsn0w can do it on old bootrom devices.

    No they're not purposely blocking it, the device will boot from nor flash so having to fetch the boot image from outside nor would be ridiculous pretty much
