After recently posting my HTC One splash screens on the Reddit /r/mylittlepony sub reddit, i had a message off ScottBee saying that he'd made the RainbOS and i'd asked if he'd got time to make a 1080x1920 version for the HTC One. Unfortunately due to time, he was a bit busy so i took some time to resize it to the HTC One resolution.
Obviously it's lost a little bit of focus with the resize but it still looks awesome on the HTC One and the loss of focus isn't even noticeable when the animation is running. I'd like to thank ScottBee for letting me use his work and if you want to see what the animation looks like you can see it on his blog.
Flash in recovery, you must be S-OFF or at least be unlocked with HTCDEV and have Clockwork/TWRP recovery installed.
Decided to create some MLP splash screens for the HTC One, since there wasn't any out there.
To use download them, put them on your SD Card and flash through recovery. You must be S-OFF to use these splash screens, do not use on any other device other than the HTC One (Not X, X+, etc.)
I'm posting this in hope that there might be a slim chance that a HTC engineer or someone that might be 'in the know' might come across this post and try and give us all a hand. The problem that HTC One X users have at this point in time is that we want to further develop on this phone but HTC's security is locking us down pretty tight. Without unlocking and voiding our warranty we end up having a device that is locked to using HTC's software. I think this is unfair to buy an expensive device and be restricted to use someone else's software, especially considering that it is an Android phone, runs Linux which is considered to be an 'Open Source' operating system.
To solve this problem we should be able to enter a mode called 'APX' mode which is a mode that is known to exist on Nvidia/Tegra based chipsets. Unfortunately HTC are being tight lipped about how to get into this mode and all standard methods used have so far resulted in nothing happening, the device entering hboot or booting normally.
Thank you for contacting HTC regarding your One X device.
My name is Gemma and I am a Technical Support Agent for the HTC Written Team.
I understand that you would like to know how you can boot your device into APX mode. Apologies but as you may already be aware we cannot support or instruct any users how and if it's possible to do this as its outside of warranty with us. I am sorry that I was unable to answer your query on this occasion.
