How to Install Custom Boot Logo on OnePlus 3/3T

0

Boot logo, also known as the splash screen, is the first image that is displayed after powering on the device. This image that appears before the boot animation. A screenshot of boot logo of the OnePlus 3/3T is attached below. The default image is nice, absolutely no doubt about it. However, some people might not like it or might want to change or customize it. Why? The simple answer is because they can. The boot logo of the OnePlus 3/3T can be changed and the steps to do so are well described in this post ahead.

There are a lot of custom boot logos/splash screen. Displaying all of the images would have made the page slower and laggier for some devices to browse through. Therefore, only a few of them are displayed. However, links to download all the boot logos together and separately are given at the end of the post. Before moving ahead, special thanks to B!Gguy of XDA for the time and dedication he has put into the making of these boot logos. The boot logos are really good.

The boot logos contain several different themes like the Game of Thrones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, Iron Man, Batman, and a lot more. Along with the boot logo, the Fastboot Mode image is also changed. Nice icing on the cake. However, these are not permanent and can be reverted back to the stock OnePlus 3/3T boot logo image. The default images are also provided in the zip file available at the end of the post. Enough waiting, let’s get started.

Wait there’s more to it. If you want to go crazy then you can set this boot logo to change randomly every time you boot. How? The process is a bit complicated and I have tried my best to simplify it. Read further to know about it. The ability to randomize the boot logos requires root access and works best with custom ROMs.

How to Make Boot Logo Change Automatically

  1. Download the custom init.d script file from here.
  2. Place it in the /system/etc/init.d directory.
  3. Then, long press the file and click on the three dots and select Properties (I’m using Solid File Explorer).
  4. Select Attributes and make sure to grant it the following permissions.
  5. Owner- RWX, Group- RX, Global- RX (-rwxr-xr-x).
  6. Then make sure that the Owner is set to root and Group is set to shell (If not then click on Browse and set it).
  7. Now, create a new folder in the sdcard directory and rename it to bootlogo (The path should look like this- sdcard/bootlogo).
  8. Place the downloaded [.zip] files in sdcard/bootlogo (Note- Apart from the downloaded [.zip] files nothing else should be there in the folder).

That’s it! Reboot your device once or twice and you will see the magic. In case you land into any issues please do let me know in the comments section below. I will try to reply as quickly as I can. Feel free to leave a comment if it works, it helps us a lot.
