Thread: Can I use QuickPwn to just switch boot and recovery logo pngs?

  1. #1
    Question Can I use QuickPwn to just switch boot and recovery logo pngs?
    Okay, I'm on a very stable 2.1 jailbroken iPhone. I broke it using the hard way that Sleepers.net (BigBoss) described. I fudged up my boot and recovery pngs, they are blank.

    Again, I'm stable and LOVING it.

    What I'd like to try and do is to us QuickPwn to change the boot and recovery logos on my ALREADY jailbroken and got-lots-of-apps-that-I-don't-want-to-reload on it.

    Any thoughts? I'm confortable with using uniextract.exe to tear apart the current quickpwn.exe file and change the parts inside, I just want to know if it's possible before I try and muck up my iPhone (again!)

    THanks for any help.

    unfortunately you must create a new .ispw file with the new custom boot thus repeating the jailbreak process. I usually wait until the next software and have my boot logos ready

    Then do it and let us know how it goes. You seem to have more confidence in this working than anyone else. From all I have read it can;t be done, but the video is promising

    i followed her steps exactly as described and I can confirm it works

    the trick is getting a png file that works... browse this thread for some good png files that are formatted correctly
    [PwnageTool] Custom Boot Logo Thread! - Page 32 - Hackint0sh

    here are some more boot logos:
    Apple Forums | ModMyi.com | iPhone, iPod, Mac, OS X, Mods, More - Downloads - Boot Logos

    get quickpwn rc3 here: Download QuickPWN RC3 | QuickPWN
    right click on the exe and extract the file (i used winrar). You will have a data folder where you can replace the logo.png file.

    get a firmware 2.0.2 and follow the instructions just like the video and it works.

    I'm still on version 2.1 and ALL my jailbroken apps and settings are retained. MAKE SURE TO UNCHECK CYDIA AND INSTALLER!

    Thanks!

    you guys....MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS WITH QUICKPWN 2.1 AND USE THE 2.1 FIRMWARE.

    I HAD PROBLEMS SYNCING WITH ITUNES WHEN I USED FIRMWARE 2.0.2 (it would just reboot during a sync)

    I FIXED THIS USING THE NEW QUICKPWN 2.1 AND 2.1 FIRMWARE.

    Sorry that this happened to you. But I used the Quickpwn RC3 that was mentioned in the YouTube video and linked in the post, along with the 2.0.2 firmware that was on my laptop.

    It definitely works. I am using iTunes 8 and swaptunes to sync on both laptop and desktop.
