Even though installing a logo is not a difficult procedure, it is always best to follow the instructions and follow the installation rules in order to avoid problems with the operation of the device. Also, we will try to answer the most frequently asked questions on this topic.
Why do I need to download a logo for a Chinese radio on Android?
A high-quality logo on a Chinese radio on Android is not only a design element, but also a guarantee of stable operation of the device and ease of use.
By downloading the logo for the radio, you will get:
Do not forget that Chinese android radios have their own characteristics and requirements in terms of content, and the logo is not the last of them. The right choice and loading of the logo for the radio is an opportunity to get maximum convenience when using it in the car.
When turning on the radio, Teyes and Wanqi AllWinner (YUEHOO) first display a static BMP picture, then an animation from many JPG files. As a rule, their names are LOGO. BMP and bootanimation.zip respectively.
In this article, we will talk about loading animation mods further. First, a little about the structure of the archive with pictures, then installation instructions for popular radios, and at the end a collection of more than 80 different bootanimations for all famous car brands.
Still image requirements are simple: BMP file format and 1024 x 600 resolution.
The bootanimation.zip archive is already somewhat more complicated. It contains the animation description file desc.txt with the following content:
Accordingly, in the example above, it has an animation resolution of 1024×600 with a frame rate of 10 per second.
Starting from the second line, the remaining lines describe the constituent parts of the animation. They do not have to be two, as in the example above. Any quantity.
TYPE – symbol indicating the type of animation segment:
In the example above, we get that we have two parts of the animation. The first is played once without pauses after the end, the second is played endlessly until the operating system is loaded.
To edit the desc.txt file, it is better not to use the standard Windows notepad. After editing it, the animation may stop working. Better turn to Notepad++.
How to install your own animation on Teyes radios
There are two ways. If there is root access, then it is enough to manually replace the archive along the path / oem / media / with any file manager, not forgetting to set the previous access rights (chmod).
The second way is through the firmware update tool. We will not update it ourselves, we will simply use this path.
It requires copying the LOGO.bmp, bootanimation.zip and lsec****update files from your firmware to a USB flash drive formatted in FAT32.
Be careful! It is very important to use the correct lsec****update file (where instead of asterisks there is a number with the processor model). Even within the same model, they may differ between firmware! Therefore, use the file from the archive of the currently installed firmware on the radio.
Correspondence between lsec****update file and Teyes head unit models:
You should end up with three files on the USB drive. Make sure there are no extras. Especially so that the updatecfg.txt file is missing – it resets the radio to factory settings along with the destruction of data. We connect the flash drive to the pre-connected radio and in the pop-up window we confirm the installation of the update:
How to install custom animation on Wanqi AllWinner (YUEHOO) radios
Root rights required. If you haven’t received them yet, follow these instructions.
The animation archive is located along the /system/media/ path. There are two of them – bootanimation_1024.zip and bootanimation_800.zip. As difficult as it may be to guess, it is used depending on the screen resolution. In my case, 1024 and I replace it with it.
Initial contents of the /system/media folder
With the help of any file manager (I use X‑Plore) we go along the path /system/media/, just in case we make a backup copy of the original. To do this, we either move it somewhere or simply rename it by adding, for example, .bak. In its place, copy the previously downloaded archive with the new animation, rename it to bootanimation_1024.zip and set the rights (chmod) to 644:
Permissions for the file bootanimation_1024.zip – 644
We double-check that the archive structure is correct — there should be a desc.txt file and several directories with animation images inside. If everything is correct, then from the curtain we press the reboot and make sure that it works:
After downloading, do not forget to rename the archive according to the model of your radio. For Teyes – bootanimation.zip, for Wanqi AllWinner (YUEHOO) – bootanimation_1024.zip.
All animations below are animated. The last frame is displayed as a picture, so do not be lazy to check each one. In some of them you can find literally a whole movie with a 3D car model.
After buying a PG from China, it already had a program to replace the boot logo, but after it the radio turns on for another 15 seconds, and at that time they considered it necessary to insert a rather dull animation with a green bucket and not the most beautiful name of their creation Eunavi (you can see it on the video).
Instruction: I want to warn you right away, only you yourself are responsible for all operations and manipulations with your devices (if I’m not in business 8), also getting root rights voids the warranty. So just changing it will not work, for this you need root rights. On android 7.1, how I managed to get them using NewKingrootV4.9.6_C151_B313_en_release_2016_08_26_105203 and SuperSU-Me+Pro-9.7.4P . If it doesn’t work out, let’s go smoke w3bsit3-dns.com FAQ section
in the part0 folder there will be those animation frames that are responsible for its appearance
in the second folder part1 there are already those frames that will be looped, I just threw the last two frames there so that the animation stops.
It is also important to pay attention to the file names: I have “01_00000” in part0 and “02_000*” in part1, where * is the next number after the last jeep in part0
1 way: manually. The text file desc.txt (which is not recommended to be created and edited with notepad, it is better to use notepad++) stores the same animation settings
1024 600 – the resolution of your screen (you can find out in many ways, from taking a screenshot of the screen and viewing properties to installing special applications), but I just went to aliexpress and looked at the characteristics of the radio, there was indicated a resolution of 1024 * 600
25 is the animation speed
p 1 0 part0 — show folder part0 once p 0 0 part1 — loop folder part1 until download is complete
Pictures I created from this video link suddenly who needs it. There are a lot of video-jpg converters on the Internet, I will not describe them. then we adjust the pictures with the help of light image resizer to our resolution of 1024 * 600, not forgetting to uncheck “keep aspect ratio”, we scatter the pictures into folders, rename them. By the way, here is a program for mass renaming files. Create desc.txt and throw it all into the bootanimation.zip archive, select the compression method “no compression”
Attention: the recommended maximum archive size is 12Mb. With animations larger than 20MB, people had problems with endless loading
Method 2 (I recommend): use special programs to create the bootanimation.zip archive, we only need prepared pictures in folders and the Boot animation creator1 program. select the desired directory
2.enter the settings of the initialization file desc.txt, which were described above
3. save the finished archive
you can check how the animation will look like with this program
Now we upload the archive to a USB flash drive, insert it into the radio. I used Total commander, the built-in Ex explorer stubbornly refused to replace the system file even with root rights. we throw our archive into system / media, set the access rights to the file 644 rw-r-r.
And finally we reboot and look at the result.
What can cause problems: it took me the most time to get root rights on android 7.1.black background (or white) when booting – I suffered for a long time trying to use png instead of jpg, all the instructions said that it can be used, and even the animation of the Chinese was in png – as soon as I converted the pictures to jpg – it all worked.
P. S: I am writing instructions for the first time, if I repeat somewhere or write incomprehensibly, do not kick hard 8) Full tank to everyone!
Glad to see you all on the pages of my BZ. In anticipation of the world shopping day on 11.11, the purchase of a new full-time GU, I decided to pass the days, and also to do a useful thing for myself and you, the owners of the GU on android, to fulfill the promise I made in the comments on the BZ page of one of our brothers in cars. Well, what haven’t you guessed yet? This entry will be about my creation of the so-called bootanimation – boot animation during a cold start of your GU, i.e. what we see on the screens while the Android OS is loading. For some, this is the logo of a car brand, for others it is a green android, etc. Agree that it’s nice to see a more presentable in a modern car?
So I decided to whip up a few of these, well, and if you like the topic, then I will certainly replenish this bootanimation collection for cars from our native Hyundai brand. Let’s start. Here I will post a link to my own video review of the created bootanimation. and under the video there will be a link for downloading and then installing the archive in zip format. Since we live in 2018, and most of us already have a GU with a resolution of 1024 x 600 px, then, accordingly, bootanimation was made by me for this resolution. In this regard, I draw your attention to the fact that it is absolutely impossible to install bootanimation if your GU has a different screen resolution. Everything you do is at your own peril and risk. Below there will be detailed instructions for installing bootanimation on GU.1. Hyundai Solaris- Accent 2017
