DROID Boot Logo Changer Released, Customize Your DROID Startup Screen

The guys over at My Droid World just released a new app that allows you to quickly change out the Motorola “M” boot logo that appears each time you restart your Droid X, Droid 2, Droid Pro or D2 Global (does not work on original Droid).  Included in the app you’ll find over 130 images to choose from and they are adding more each day.  Some of the categories of images are pictured above to give you an idea of what you have in store, but most importantly, there are Droid Life logos!  

To get a DL logo as your bootup:

*DOES NOT WORK ON ORIGINAL DROID.  DX, D2, D2 GLOBAL AND DROID PRO ONLY.

*You have to be rooted.  (Instructions)  (More Instructions)

1.  Simply open the app and choose “Online Library.”
2.  Then choose “Forum Logos” and you should see 4 of ours sitting right at the top.
3.  Tap on the one you want, click “Flash This” and the work is done.
4.  Reboot your phone to see it in action

Purchase now for $.99 in the market.

    Has the potential to be good but it had a bunch of animations I've already seen. Plus none are actually really good. I mean come on all of us have these sweet, sleek, and sexy phones. We don't want kiddy animations. We professional looking animations that make us want to keep restarting our phones just to see it again. Uninstalled and refunded. Will check back on this once it gets updated with a better selection.

    Well my beloved Droid it is a little more than a year since u came to me, and believe me I will naver leave, i will keep you until the end of ur days.Thanks for the information on blog. This information made my study easier.

    I tried it on my rooted Droid 2 and every time I tried to set the boot logo it would cause an FC. I also tried the one from JRummy16 and that one worked perfectly. Not sure what the difference is between the 2 of them, but I'm sticking with what works.

  • Fikemox

    Is there anyway to take some of these and put them on as the bootloader icon? I look at the CM decal much longer when my phone boots than I do the Motorola logo. Just wondering…cause I have a D1 and would LOVE a Colts decal when my phone loads…

  • Dpg2103

    Why not state “must be rooted” in the title of all the posts for apps that only work on rooted phones? I always feel like a kid in a candy store at first, then I get every piece of my being pulverized when I find out my parents have no more $.

    If they've got the Bungals on there I can only hope they also have the Browns!
    And also my Buckeyes.

    Any chance of this coming to the DInc?

    • Dustin

      If/when we can find a method, we'll bring it to the world baby!!!

  • Cmorty72

    Bummer it doesn't work for OGD (yet).

    Looking forward to when it does.

  • ultima

    im just getting over losing my D1 (VZW replaced w/ D2) i wonder if id be upset if i still had the D1……..yes lol

    but sometimes i still feel like a red headed step-child with this damn locked bootloader and like 2 or 3 roms…and just in case ppl dont know, you can manually do it on D1, you just wont have this easy app :(

    what, no love for the OG? My upgrade can't come fast enough! :D

  • Kevin Jellison

    Would be nice to see a poll of how many people are still using the OG as their primary phone, or at least using it as one of their phones.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Guerin/194400986 John Guerin

    what a disappointment… back in the day everything seemed to be only for the D1… now we are left in the dust… yet i bet you more people have it than the D2 or DX or the stupid globals combined…

  • Ibowtoandroid

    I can make you an Inc splash screen..

    The title is misleading :(

      • dustinmj

        Wait… Snap… I did say that :-p

  • Chris.Go

    Kinda meaningless. Although I bet it was fun to program.

  • villian1998
  • John Galt

    I guess this is how it starts. Slowly we the OG Droid owners will be left behind. :-(

  • eddieonofre

    Does not work on the Original Droid??? WTF so the OG is already being left out of the goddies?????

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      goddies? o_O

  • Mth2134

    For og m logo changing it has to be done via sbf. Not really that hard guys.

    • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

      We know. Just like giving a hard time ;)

      Loosen up, baby! lol

      • Mth2134

        Im cool baby!!! :) mad love Tim!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_65S6FW5R6GUWUPJ6OFEW5JNNI4 lbds

      While it’s not ridiculously hard, it is definitely a lot more work than using an app to do it. Then again, the SBF method lets you use ANY image you want, so it’s more robust in that way.

  • demoltionman

    Hm um…LOVE

    Droid 2 Rooted
    Overclocked to 1.45 GHz

  • 1bad69z28

    No OG Love what the HELL, C'mon, get this stuff out of here. Seroiusly I'm hurt by this, I guess the time of reckioning is getting near. This app sounds and looks pretty good but it should not be just a bootlooder only how about live wallpaprers or regular wall papers where the others have left off. Like MLB, NFL, NBA Team etc… Now that would be a cool app that you can change not only the bootloader but the wapp paper as well.

    Oh yeah for ALL of the Family Members :)

  • scorpion77

    Booooooooooooooooooooooo Not showing love for the OG .. total BS !!

  • versusxiii

    My poor Droid 1 is feeling very, very left out. :(

  • NorCalGuy

    I know it says not for D1 but has anyone tried?? I am making a backup right now and then going to try!! rooted D1 LFY 1.9

    • Glschuck3

      Let me know if it works :)

      • NorCalGuy

        sorry its a no go, i backed up my phone, downloaded the app, it opens and runs but when going to flash it gives me a force close, so i fixed permissions in ROM manager and rebooted and tried again same result! I would normaly uninstall and refund but the app designer said it would NOT work with a D1 so its my fault, going to keep it and hope support for the D1 comes soon, this is a great app and one i wish had come out along time ago ( especially for the D1).

    • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

      Does your Droid have Blur? :P

      • NorCalGuy

        No i have one of the non BLURry phones, you know one of the plain VANILLA ones!!

        • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

          Then it won't work :(

  • shanklin07

    I am having a hard time with this realization, but I know my og droid is coming to the end of its life…..I don't know what I will do when that day is upon me but I know I will have to make a choice. A choice that I'm not sure I can make……a replacement for my beloved Droid. Many of you share this same reality with me. Lets take a moment to appreciate our Droids and really let them know we care. Use them my brothers and open that keyboard up! Press those keys and feel the elation of knowing you will never let your Droid be forgotten! DAMN THIS POST!

      I love my droid, but I’ve been itching to upgrade it for the past few months…. and I only got it in march! I love it but it annoys the hell out of me sometimes because to get it to run consistently fast and flawless you have to put a lot of time into making it happen. I want to have the speed of a 1GHz+ phone without having to screw around with kernels/launchers/compcache/etc…

      • Anonymous

        I hear ya, but what original droid owners will most likely be upgrading to soon will be phones that are dual core processors and phones that have 4g capabilities. We jumped on the Droid and while their have been many great phones that came out prior to it, they were just different iterations of the OG Droid. Its great for people that own the droid x and incredible now, but it makes no sense to upgrade at this point, but for many og droid owners, we will upgrade during one of the biggest network evolutions since 3g. Its going to be a great year next year for Android. Just wait ; )

      Oh my beloved Droid it is a little more than a year since u came to me, and believe me I will naver leave, i will keep you until the end of ur days.

      Og Droid ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!

      PSDT: well I might think about changing u only if there is a new phone not locked vanilla androdi with keyboard and with the soft bottom in the same order.

    Original Droid gets less and less love……..

    • Sorry

      Its old.

      • Michael_NM

        It's mature, not old.

      • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

        It's old? 1 year old for a life changing device? I don't think so! And frankly, I'm insulted….
        :)
        Either way, this is still number one site from Droid News! :P

      DInc is made by HTC, so no. This is only for Motorola devices.

      There is an easy method for the DInc if you know where to look…

    • Dustin

      Sorry everyone, we love droid 1 as much as anybody… But we just don’t have a method for OG… Yet.

      Thanks for all the support though, lol :p

      • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

        Well if the prerequisite is rooted, then you should just make an app that lets you flash an sbf while not having to be in recovery or involves RSD ;) hah

        • Russ

          Hey looks like us DInc users are out of luck too. I’m joining the D1 bandwagon on this one!
