How to Change Boot Logo on Samsung Devices

In this guide, we will show you the steps to change the boot logo on your Samsung Galaxy device. During the initial days of Android, the likes of ClockWorkMod Recovery, Titanium Backup, CyanogenMod, and SuperUser reigned supreme. And it was at that time frame only when changing the boot animations and start-up logo were among the most preferred tweaks for tech enthusiasts. While the ecstasy surrounding that has settled or maybe even diminished to a point of no return, there are still a few users who didn’t give up on this tweak.

If you are among them, then you will be glad to know that even today, there exist quite a few nifty tools through which you could easily boot logo on your Samsung Galaxy device. And in this guide, we will make you aware of one such tool. The biggest perk of this software is the fact that it automatically adjusts the wallpaper size to the device’s display. As a result of which, you could easily use it across all the Samsung devices [having Exynos chipset], irrespective of the screen size. So on that note, let’s get started with the guide.

By Modifying up_param.bin [New]

  2. After that, download the stock firmware for your device via the Frija Tool or the SamFW website.
  3. Make sure to download the same version that is currently installed on your device.
  4. Now extract the AP file va 7 ZIP and get hold of the up_param.bin.
  5. Once the extraction is complete, you will now get a few images.
  6. Customize them as per your liking, but do not change their resolution.
  7. Likewise, do not modify the Download Mode screens.
  8. Leaving that aside, you may modify the following files:
    boot_warning.jpg, logo.jpg, letter.jpg, svb_orange.jpg (bootloader unlock warning)
  9. Once the modification is done, press Ctrl+A to select all the images.
  10. Then right-click on it > Show More Options > 7 ZIP > Add to Archive.

  14. Note down the address for up_param. In our case, it is sda10.
  15. Before moving on, let’s take a backup of this partition [replace sda10 accordingly]
    dd if=/dev/block/sda10 of=/sdcard/backup-param.bin

    param bin partition samsung boot logo
