BootPackage Windows Mobile Updated
For those of you wondering how you could change the boot screen on your devices, xda member Wajk just updated his nice looking boot screen packages. Among them, you can find Windows 7 style bootscreen animations as well as the old PC style to choose from.
You have the ability to enable or disable animations as well as sound, which is definitely a nice way to start up your device. Updated version 1.4 is tested working well on WVGA/VGA/QVGA resolutions.

Only 160K! with sound only 550K!
IMPORTANT THINGS about the versions:
v1.4 – without sound, but if you need, download sound from here, thnx for prasangbc
v1.2 – with louder sound
v1.3 – with silently sound
Hint: possible, if some device haven’t got HTCAnimation.dll
if not working standard version:
first install nonHTC(WVGA) version,
and than install your resolution version. (nonHTC version has HTCAnimation.dll and some REG keys.)
– nonHTC version, but my testers report not working, i tried many things, added HTCAnimation.dll to Windows directory, and added many REG keys, but boot animation don’t work, sorry guys…
i uploaded nonHTC version, if anybody want play with it, but i write: NOT working. If anybody find solution, PLZ report me!
- faster animation for faster rom (example: WM6.5.x)
- no sound version, but if you need, download sound from here, thnx for prasangbc
- bigger Windows logo
You can find more information about this in the boot screen thread.

The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it.
