    This tutorial will show you how to create your own Custom Boot logos that are made to work through XPwn creation/QuickFreedom

    Make sure your custom image follows these instructions:

    The image is a correct PNG image file
    The image is not over 100KB in size
    The image is not over 320 x 480 in size
    The image has correct transparency. (This may be a problem for some people, if your image is not working, I would recommend downloading Ifranview free imaging editor software.

    1) Open the image in Irfanview and then click File->Save (original folder).
    2) Select PNG from the dropdown list and options for PNG images will appear on the top right
    3) Check Save Transparent Color.
    4) Press save and a dialog "Set Transparent color will appear"
    5) Now select the transparent color, if you made the backround black then select any black spot on your image.
    6) Now you have your own logo

    Because the OP didn't post the information regarding RGB Channels and how they must be setup in the graphic for it to work. It usually converts with libpng in XPwn. but not always.

    I don't know why but i couldn't get it to work without transparency. I tried a solid image fitting all the other requirements and all i got was a black boot screen.
    switched to a smaller logo with transparent background and it worked.

    Planetbeing said he's work on LogoMe after he was done with QuickPwn. If you use winterboard to set a custom boot logo it loads under the default one so he'll have to figure out how to override the default one for LogoMe to work. Right now all we can to is hardcode them into the IPSW when we jailbreak.

    Ok, if I would delete all black pixels in PS and then export it with tranparency and black as a background-color, could that work?

    Another way you could do this, is completely delete one pixel in the corner of your image so it's transparent. That one pixel will appear black when you boot, but even if you have a white background you won't notice unless your looking for it.

    Please note: The image is not over 100KB in size
    This isn't true seeing that my image is 226 KB in size.

    I'm using the same image as above without the iMax
