rle images are displayed upon boot of an Android system. They are found in the boot.img.
It should be noted that rle images are not a necessary component of a boot.img.
Creating rle imagesEdit
- the convert binary
- the to565 binary
- an image that is the same size as your device's screen resolution
Change directory in terminal or command line to the location of the image you would like to convert. Execute the command
convert -depth 8 your-image-name rgb:tempimg.raw
Followed by the command
to565 -rle < tempimg.raw > initlogo.rle
Place the converted image into a boot.img and name it initlogo.rle, include the boot.img in your ROM, or flash it to your device, and your image will be displayed on boot!
