How to change Boot logo, Boot Animation of Cherry Mobile Titan (w500)
WARNING: CHANGING SOME FILE ON YOUR PHONE MAY BRICK YOUR PHONE IF YOU MADE MISTAKES SO TRY IT ON YOUR OWN RISK AND ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR PHONE FOR SAFETY
Here is another tweak for users of cherry mobile titan (w500) if you want to add your own boot logo and change the boot animation and sound simply follow the instructions here.
REQUIRED: ROOTED PHONE
OPTIONAL: BACKUP YOUR PHONE
the Cherry Mobile Titan Has 3 Boot loading
- Cherry Mobile Boot Logo — as of the moment you cannot change this 🙁
- Custom Boot Logo — as a default you don’t have this so we will add this on this tutorial
- Boot Animation — Custom Boot Animations predefined on some apps.
CUSTOM BOOT LOGO
1. download the IMAGE SEARCH EDITOR this tool will be use to open the boot_logo file later.
2. download and install on your mobile phone either of the two ROM TOOLBOX LITE (free) or ROM TOOLBOX PRO (paid) version.
once you have installed this open it and goto
- click the ROOT BROWSER
- then SYSTEM
- goto MEDIA
- click the IMAGES
- you will see the boot_logo
- and copy the boot_logo
- then click the home icon then select the SDCARD
- and paste it on the root directory
Now you can plug your usb cable to copy that file (boot_logo) onto your LOCAL DRIVE (PC) and rename it to boot_logo.bin, then open the IMAGE SEARCH EDITOR and find the boot_logo.bin that you have renamed.
as a default windows doesn’t show you filetype extension in order to show that you need to goto your menu bar > organize > folder and search options > view > uncheck the hide extensions for known file types
Next is to click the BMP button and then the 16bit button because the image that we are going to edit is a bitmap
goto size > then Set Image Size and we will change the actual size so you will see the actual logo image
you need to change it to 480 x 800 and press OK.
you must now see this image as a whole 🙂 and now all you have to do is save it as .BMP file so we can edit it on a photo editing application ex.Photoshop but don’t close the image search editor we will still use it later.
I have added our logo and customize it the way I want it to show, you can freely edit this as long as you want and once you are satisfied you need to save it as .bmp
follow this settings FILE FORMAT = WINDOWS , DEPTH = 16bith and press ok , now you have save your file, let’s go back to the image search editor
and now goto edit > then click the replace by BMP and look for the file that you have save a while ago and open that.
it will now replace the old cherry mobile logo and click the apply to save changes
then save it as .bin again , now you can rename it back to boot_logo by removing the .bin filename, and then transfer it back again into your mobile phone using the ROM TOOLBOX root browser and overright the old boot_logo be sure to delete first the old one before pasting it again, when you reboot your phone you will see it now after the cherry mobile logo 🙂
1. goto ROM TOOLBOX app and then swipe it to the right until you see the boot animations
click the boot animations and choose from the hundres/thousands of different animation that suits your taste 🙂 simply download or even preview and install then reboot again your phone you will see now the new boot animations on your phone pretty easy right 🙂
see it in action
