Nextbit Robin, a unique device in itself, has a lot of unique and useful features. The device is seasoned with a completely different look from the hardware as well as from the software side. However, the thing which takes some people by surprise is that the device comes with an unlocked bootloader. Let’s keep all other things aside for the moment and take a closer look on how to create custom boot logo for the Nextbit Robin.

Boot logo is also called as the splash screen if you know it by that name. In simple terms, it is basically the first screen which appears after boot. In other words, the image which appears before the boot animation. Don’t confuse between the two terms. Boot animation is completely different that boot logo. The former is an animation while the latter is a still image.

Nevertheless, some people don’t like the original boot logo. Generally, they are stuck with it because they don’t know how to change it or find the process to risky. Well in this post we will not only tell you how to change the boot logo but also tell you how to create one yourself. Trust me the process is easy.


How to Create Custom Boot Logo

  1. Rename the image- logo.
  2. Then, Paste the image in the \NextBit_Robin_Splash_Maker\pics folder (Make sure to delete the previous logo image).
  3. Next, run the CREATE_LOGO.bat (A terminal window will pop-up).
  4. Type yes and hit enter.

That’s it! Pretty simple isn’t it. Now the fun part. Let’s flash it. There are three methods of doing this. I’m going to describe all the three. Choose according to your preference.
