OK using the tool that comes with my ROM (RKAndroid 1.29) you can flash ONLY the boot.img and the system will not erase all your stuff.  I made a custom boot screen for my ROM.  I have that all scripted in Ubuntu and can make anyone their own custom boot screen in seconds. 

So if you want your own other than mine, I am willing to do that for you for free.

Requirements:
1) Of course you have to be using my ROM as it wont work otherwise.
2) Of course you have to reflash ONLY the boot.img and do not erase IBD
3) The image you supply me must be 1024X600.  I am not going to do the graphics work for you, etc. So edit your own boot screen with whatever you want it to be just make sure it's already formatted at 1024 Wide by 600 High.
4) It would be best if the image was in .PNG format but I can deal with .JPG and some others.  If you can't make those formats PM me with what you can make.
5) I will have my ROM version on the screen and like my screen now says, "A Finless Bob Root".  If that is OK with you all?  I would also like to keep a link to this web site.  Both will be in the corners of the image...... Can't be that bad if I make you a custom boot screen 😉

 

So if you want your own custom boot image? PM me.  I will send you a PM back with an Email address to send the image you want as your boot screen.  If I am around or within a day probably, I will Email you back with your boot.img that you will flas using RKAndroid tool.  I will send instructions as well on exactly how to flash boot.img.

So just a special offer I am making to folks out there!  I can't say how long my response will be to reply to you. I can't say how long I will offer this service. I cant say if you screw up and brick your device that I can help!...... I can't say any promises really.... All I can say is I am willing to do some fun stuff for you all!

 

Enjoy,
Bob

My first customer is damo.  He sent me an image and I made him a new boot.img.
OK so here are the instructions for flashing with a new boot.img and your customized boot screen that I put together for you! 

Requirements: 

1) You must already be flashed to my new ROM 1.1 period!  Otherwise flashing with these instructions will brick your device! 
2) Well this is assumed but if you have already flashed my ROM using RKAndroid Tool 1.29 (RK29update.exe) then I do not need to tell you about installing drivers!  YES you need the drivers to flash...  

Note: the cool thing about RKAndroid Tool 1.29 (RK29update.exe) is you can flash certain segments of your tablet and not erase anything else!  This is how I can make someone a new boot.img and they just get it FAST and FLASH it easy!  You will ONLY be flashing boot.img using my ROM kit (RK29update.exe).  Since you flashed my ROM already, you already have my ROM kit and thus the RKAndroid Tool 1.29 (RK29update.exe) and drivers installed. If not.... walk away from this tutorial!  

Instructions for flashing a new boot.img that I made for you:

WARNING: Regardless of how I say this will not erase anything, I really DO think you should make a backup using Titanium Backup or your backup program of choice just in case.  DON'T complain to me if you lost data.  But this process should NOT lose any of your data, apps ,etc

1) The new boot.img I post here or PM you with a link to, will be named with your handle here on Arctablet.  Since my first customer is damo, his file is called damo_boot.img.
Damo get your boot.img here;
http://www.helifreakswag.com/damo_boot.img

2) Download your link (like above for damo) and save it to your desktop or to somewhere on your hard disk(s) that you know where it is.

3) Run RK29update.exe from my ROM kit.

4) It will load.  UNCHECK EVERYTHING other than boot.img.  Seriously this is important if you do not want to lose your already installed aps and data! Make sure ONLY boot.img is checked!

5) On the boot.img row in the tool, click the box that has three dots in it e.g. ...

6) You will get a windows search dialog.  Navigate to the boot.img you downloaded from me in step 1.  In this example damo will be navigating to where he saved damo_boot.img from my link provided.

7) Reboot your Arnova into recovery mode.  I have explained how to do this in my ROM kit.  You will know if the Arnova is in recovery mode as the RK29update.exe will say at the bottom of the screen "found  RKAndroid Loader Rock USB".  If you don't have this message, as in my rom flash instructions, you will not be able to flash your boot.img! 

Now the next step.... DO NOT CLICK EraseIDB!  If you do... all your stuff is gone!

8) Make sure as I said in #4 uncheck everything other than boot.img. ONLY boot.img should be checked in the list to flash!  IF YOU LEAVE OTHER STUFF CHECKED....  YOU CAN LOOSE DATA OR BRICK! Now just click the RUN button and it will flash a new boot.img to your Arnova.

9) Your Arnova will reboot and ENJOY!  Your own custom boot screen!

 

OK damo, let me know how all this goes and give feedback.  I think you will find how EASY it was to flash only boot.img and instantly on the next reboot get your own custom boot screen.  Again please provide feedback.

I will want to delete your boot.img from my server later as I cannot afford the bandwidth downloads from many might cause.  Your screen is cool so maybe share it by posting an picture 🙂

Hey folks.... I just talked to Admin.  No promises here but he may script this here on Arctablet so you just submit an image and it will make you a new boot.img.  So while I am still offering this FREE it may soon become free'er 😉

 

Again if you want a free boot picture customized just ask!

After installing you can view the boot animation files on your PC!
