Thread: changing boot logos after 2.0.2 quickpwn

  1. #1
    Default changing boot logos after 2.0.2 quickpwn
    Last night I did the 2.0.2 quickpwn on my 3g and swapped the pineapple logo in the directory with a different .png file. After the jailbreak I had no boot logo at all. Any way I can switch the bootlogo without re-pwning? The only method I've seen says to use the custom logo tool in winpwn to update them, but it's greyed out in v2.0.0.4.

    Any ideas?

    download the original quickpwn w/o gui and right click the appropriate .bat file and edit the string where you see logo.png and restore.png. if you delete those two things including teh -b.... then you will have the default apple logo. here is what my .bat file looks like. just copy paste if you're using it for 2g.

    @echo off

    if exist "iPhone1,1_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw" goto good
    goto notgood

    :good

    quickpwn "iPhone1,1_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw" m68ap Cydia.tar.gz

    goto done

    :notgood
    echo ERROR: iPhone1,1_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw not found!

    :done
    pause

    Thats the procedure if you want to keep the default logo. If you want to change the logo, just replace the logo.png file with whatever you want (following proper guidelines or making boot logo of course...) and just quickpwn it again. It takes literally 5 minutes and just jailbreaks your phone again. You won't lose anything.

    I had the same exact problem as you. I used the quickgui to jailbreak my v. 2.02 iphone and it worked! but the pinapple boot logo just disturbed me. After a while of researching i found this thread and did as the other guy above me said (using the command-line version of quickpwn) and it worked. I dont know what you should do...see if you are saving the edit after your done changing the lines or if your editing the right file. Oh and also make sure your clicking on the right .bat file when you go to re-jailbreak your iPhone.

    If all else fails here's the file i used. Just click on the iPhone 3g icon, and follow the command line instructions.

    P.S. i just realized your (chris) info says ur using firmware 1.1.4...make sure you update fully to 2.02

    Ok, I figured out how to do this but you do have to rePwn it. First off, not just any .png will work. It must have a transparency layer and it will add in the black background automatically. For example, the first attached iPhoneLinux.png image will not work but the second logo.png will work and will make the same boot logo in the end. Click on the 2nd image to see what I mean about transparency as the thumbnail system on this forum also adds in a black background. Feel free to use the logo.png and recovery.png files I have attached if you wish.

    What you need to do if you have already pwned is re-pwn your iPhone again. Load up QuickPwnGUI120 and do not go any further. When the program executes it will create a folder with all of the program files in CDocuments and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Temp\RarSFX1 and in that folder you should see a logo.png and recovery.png. Replace those with the proper .png files of your choosing. Then go back to QuickPwn and continue as normal, leaving the 'replace boot logos' option checked.

    Hope that helps!

    Is there a way to SSH a boot logo in? I've tried to do the other methods, and they're just to messy for me. There has to be an easier way. Code changes always f*$& me up.
    Blah

    Thanks 4nic8tor,
    this worked. I guess that is what I have been doing wrong by not putting a transparent background logo.png. Thanks now I am happy!!!

    hey what version of windows are you using, I can't follow that file path to find the folder.

    That is on WindowsXP...not sure where temporary app data would be on other versions. Just launch quickpwn and then run a search on your c drive for 'RarSFX1'. Also, it is a hidden file so you may need to go into 'Folder Options' and select 'show hidden files and folders' (or something like that).

    Default Location for Vista
    For Vista, the files are in the following location:

    %LOCALAPPDATA%\Temp\RarSFX0

    %LOCALAPPDATA% = CUsers\<USERNAME>\AppData\Local

    Doesnt work on vista.

    Keep getting the "PwnApple"

    EDIT

    all i get is a blank screen.

    Thanks
    umm hi?

    It seems that the Transparency is a requirement within the image. I got a black screen with my boot logo. I then opened the image and made 1 pixel ( the bottom left corner in my case) transparent and it worked just fine.

    OKAY GREAT! How about changing it WITHOUT re-pwning???

    Hmmm???

    SSH???? Would be alot F@#!ING easier!
    Blah

    For winpwn 2.1 the temp dir where you have to change logo.png is CDocuments and Settings\user.name\Local Settings\Temp\7ZipSfx.000\Data
