Important: I had to redo this tutorial because it previously contained copyrighted material which I was not aware of. [PREPARING THE LOGOS] 1. Open your 320x480 file in Photoshop. 2. Making the image transparent: Double-click the Background in the Layers palette, click ok on the new pop-up. 3. Select the zoom tool and zoom in as much as possible on a BLACK pixel. 4. Select the eraser and delete 1 pixel, make it black because it will be filled with the color black when you put it on your iPod. 5. Go to File > Save for Web & Devices > Pick PNG-24 or PNG-8 from the drop-down, make sure your image is around 300kb.

Troubleshooting: If you get error 6, check your .png files, make sure theres at least 1 transparent pixel, if you don't know how to prepare the .png view the video at the top of the thread. If your logos are over 300kb please see this tutorial: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=158677 If they are over 400kb, unfortunately there is no known fix. This does not touch your main filesystem, so apps, themes, music, etc will remain on your iPod, all it does is add boot logos. If you are on verbose mode currently you need to get ibss211.dfu from a 2.1.1 ipsw, and the redsn0w commands which can be found on www.redsn0w.com. Then enter DFU mode and send the 211ibss by entering this command into irecovery: irecovery -f ibss211.dfu - after this unplug and replug your ipod Type "irecovery -s" then issue the redsn0w commands and restore from iTunes.
