Take your Oppo smartphone in hand and turn it off. Long press the power button and you’ll see Oppo’s logo on the screen. That’s known as a splash screen or boot logo. Perhaps not everyone likes it. Some may even want to change it. The question, can you change the splash screen on an Oppo smartphone? Fortunately, the answer is yes.
We at AndroidFist have curated a list of methods with step-by-step instructions on how to change the splash screen on Oppo devices. These methods are tried and tested but may not work on some units due to millions of reasons. Thus, we don’t take any responsibility if your phone bricks or the software crashes or gets corrupted and so on. Thus, user discretion is advisable.
Disclaimer: Most of these methods require a rooted Oppo device that grants the user access to the various Android subsystems for greater control allowing users to perform functions that otherwise wouldn’t be possible with a non-rooted Android operating system. Also, we don’t take responsibility if your phone bricks or turns into the next Dragon Capsule to Mars so proceed at your own risk.
How To Create a Splash Screen (Boot Logo)
Before you can proceed with changing a splash screen on your Oppo Smartphone, you need to make sure you have a custom splash screen ready at your disposal. Apparently, there are plenty of methods you can do to create a splash screen. Here’s one of the methods that you can use.
Things To Keep In Mind
Before you can proceed, there are a few things you should be aware of. First up, you need to find out the screen resolution of your device. It is just a piece of cake since you can literally find it on GSMArena. For example, your phone could have a resolution such as 720×1440 or 1080×1920. Once you have it, you need to check the buffer size of the splash screen that the system allocates to your device. Some devices could have it at 75KB or 100KB or more or less. Note that anything above the buffer size, the system will remove it and replace it with the original one. Using fewer colors reduces the size, and compressing it using compressPNG or other tools helps too.
Here’s how you can create a splash screen (boot logo) on Oppo smartphones
Step 01: The first and the most important thing you’ll need is a splash maker. You can refer to this splash tool created by a member of XDA Developer. Note that you need to check the screen resolution that we mentioned above before proceeding.
- Once you download the said tool, extract it using a ZIP extractor and check out the bin folder for a file titled “Technical Details”. You will find information about the screen size the tool can create splash screens for.
- If it is not as per your phone’s screen size, here are some tools with varying output resolutions to try – 1, 2, 3, 4
Step 02: You need to create a splash (boot logo) that suits you. Remember to keep it aptly under the screen resolution and buffer size.
Step 03: Name the new file as “logo.jpg”, “logo.png”, depending upon what your device has its original boot logo file saved as. It could also be “splash.img” or “splash.png”, so make sure you take a note of the original name first for the nomenclature.
Step 04: Open the downloaded files, go to the ‘Pics’ subfolder and replace the old boot logo with the new one. Take a backup of the original file in case if needed in the later run.
Step 05: Finally, navigate to the main folder and run the Batch File called “CREATE_LOGO.bat”. This sound encodes the new splash screen in the file that you will have to flash it using Method #3 or Method #4, whichever suits you well.
Step 06: You will find the final boot logo (image) in the “Output” folder.
