Had to search around a little to find out how to make and install custom boot logos so thought i'd put together all the info in one spot...

instructions are essentially the same for gimp and photoshop:

create a 540x540 image
merge into one layer
Gimp: select Colors > Components > Channel Mixer
Photoshop: select Image > Adjustments > Channel Mixer
select Output channel: Red and change the red value from 100 to 0 and the blue value from 0 to 100
now select Output channel: Blue and change the red value from 0 to 100 and the blue value from 100 to 0
hit OK
Note: the colors will look strange but will display properly on the phone

Gimp: select file > export
name "logo.bin"
select "all files" from dropdown menu
expand the "select file type (by extension)" menu and select "raw image data"
export

Photoshop: select file > save as
name "logo.bin"
format "photoshop raw"
save

flash your logo with fastboot:

code;
fastboot flash logo logo.bin

Thanks to p3droid and TBH!

I suppose that your talking about replacing the "M" logo?

because the stock razr boot-animation picture size is 540X960

Nice write up :)

Yes this is for the initial splash logo, not the bootanimation.

Maybe a Windows tutorial? or someone that could make a Safestrap/Bootstrap flashable .zip?

Just the little rectangle with the circles and the "hello moto" letters, like on say an old V220 or V400? That's very very cool.

Hey are you sure you can flash this in recovery for the xt912 RAZR? I was under the impression that you needed to use fastboot to replace logo.bin with the new one

No, if you flash this through recovery on your Razr, it will throw your phone into fastboot mode with boot failure. You will be calling Batman to save your Razr.

i don't have a razr so I can't say for sure, but it should work the same way as with d3 and bionic which I know both work.
If for whatever reason it doesn't work, fastbooting the stock logo.bin would fix boot failure, but that would happen only if there is security / signature check on the mmcblk1p10 partition; and if there was, then fastbooting a custom logo would cause boot failure also, which we know it doesn't.

Yea, It throw'd my Razr into fastboot with the boot failure. I flashed it through the safe side, don't know if it makes any difference. I just used RSD and FB back.

Just kind of a heads up for anyone that flashes it through safestrap on the safe side with their Razr's like I did. Wanted to get it out there cause some folks may not know how to recover from the soft brick.

damn, sorry about that, i just asked matt and he verified that this method indeed doesn't work with the razr. very strange. i've removed razr update.zip link and added razr-specific insructions.

No problem at all. Lol I was just glad it was me, and not someone who didn't know how to recover.:) We learn as we grow.

i know i shouldn't have assumed, but i can't see any reason why the dd method wouldn't work when there's no security or signature check on that partition.

Eh, it was an honest oversight. No harm done :). It is strange that the method would be different.

Here is an easier way:
Still got that old TBH app?
Use that to download the Razr toolbox, aka Fire donkey. Place your *. img file in the boot logo folder and it will flash it for you, no problem! Just select custom logo from the app.
