Download: Droid Life Splash Screen for DROID Incredible

One of the additional customizable pieces on the Droid Incredible is the “splash” screen which normally features a white and black HTC Incredible logo.  The screen can be changed into almost anything of your liking, but you have to have used unrevoked forever (s-off tool) in order to do it.  Once you’ve done that, it’s a simple file creation which one of my buddy’s has done below to create this custom Droid Life version.

Video Action: (via Droid X blurryvision 720p)

Download:  PB31IMG.zip

Instructions:

1.  Download the file from above and drop on the root of your SD card.

DO NOT RENAME IT!

2.  Turn your phone off.
3.  Boot into HBOOT by pressing the optical track pad and power button at the same time.
4.  After processing for a few seconds, your phone will ask if you want to apply an update.
5.  Press volume up to accept.
6.  The update should take seconds to complete and will then prompt you to reboot.
7.  Press volume up again to reboot.
8.  Your phone should reboot with the new Droid Life splash screen!

If you are interested in creating your own DI splash screen, check out this tutorial from XDA Forums.

Cheers Justin!

    Interesting information.Well Kellex could you post that picture to fit the DX just as a wallpaper. I'd love to sport that on my X. ;-) Great stuff as usual…Thanks

    This could be one of the best I have used to date. Battery life is amazing and charges quick. Has GPU+ and the smartass profile loaded

    Some apps don’t support tilting the screen. On my phone I have the Kindle app and it does support tilting. You may want to download the app and see if it works. If it does not you may need to reconfigure the G-Sensor

    I have a Motorlola Droid and just finished installing Bible Reader 4. The first time I opened (after the initial download) I installed the ESV Study Bible from my bookshelf and everything looked good to go. However, I have not been able to open the app reliably after that. Often it opens up to the splash screen (which is quite beautiful) but it just sits there. When stuck, the only button that has any effect is the Home button.

    i actually like the custom incredible boot screen more, but 720p upgrade is nice. I cant complain..It would be great if they enabled wireless N on here considering it's just a software thing:)

    make sure the file is named PB31IMG.zip and not .zip.zip or anything other than that and you should be good, make sure its in / of your sdcard too. The green text you are seeing is HBOOT trying to find the img file

  • Simmetp

    When I go into HBOOT it quickly flashes in green text the name of the zip file, but it then disappears and I don't get the option to apply update…help?

    It's a little different than the original splash i made but that's because i had to re-do the grass for the screen resolution hopefully you still like it if you wanted it

    • Barlog

      Thanks man it looks great on my X :-)

    • kellex

      Please “like” his post.

      • Noble Team

        where are the darkedge theme icons?

  • Barlog

    I agree I would love to just have that picture as my wallpaper. PLEASE ;-)

  • Maizekid

    I just want that picture as my wallpaper.

  • Pog-Mo-Thoin

    Kellex, how can I get that finely crafted picture in a size that would look incredible as a wallpaper on my Droid OG?

  • SFC_Airborne51

    Yeah I agree the amazing amount of customization available to Android devices is just staggering. Plus add in an amazing user community and you have a story for success in the making. I was for a while waiting for i*hone on Verizon but since getting my Droid I will never go to the Dark Siide! I have even converted my wife into a Droid fiend. I am now trying to get my sister to give up her crappy i*hone4 since all she does is complain about it. Keep up the great work Kellex and the Droid-Life crew!

    Nice, I really like that picture.

  • androidict

    will this work on evo?

    • kellex

      Not 100% sure but I'm guessing it could. Although the size of the pic probably isn't big enough to fit the EVO's screen. :P

      • androidict

        urghh..looks cool tho..ight mann thx

      • Barlog

        Hey Kellex could you post that picture to fit the DX just as a wallpaper. I'd love to sport that on my X. ;-) Thanks

  • KillaPenguin

    This is another awesome example of the main reason why Android will ALWAYS be better than iOS. Customization. I definitely never want to be part of a group of users gets feverishly excited about ridiculously mediocre additions to an OS, like *folders* and *wallpapers*.

    I'll take being able to change the look and feel of almost every aspect of my phone OS, not just superficial things.

  • blackcatroad

    It's saying the file is not available.

    oh, and 1st

    n/m, guess you were still uploading it. ;-)

    • JubbaTheHutt

      File is up.

      Also, what settings did you use on the X to make the video so blurry?

      • kellex

        Straight up 720p shooting. I guess the DX camera really does hate being indoors.

        • Turner

          kellex, I just got my OG Droid replaced by a Droid X from fed-ex today… so far I think I'm psyched. I've searched Droid X on the site but any recommendations for new Droid Xers? I knew my Droid, with root, in and out, I'm feeling a bit lost.
