Greetings HD2 Brethren! I recently created these boot screens in Photoshop to showcase our amazing phone’s unique triple-booting penta-booting capabilities! I made several versions to potentially fit everyone’stastes and strived to make the boot screens clean, simple, and appealing. My ultimate goal is the assimilation of all HD2s (Muahahahahahahaha) therefore I have compiled fourteen versions; so pick your poison
YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.
First time installing a custom boot screen? Don’t worry! All 14 images come wrapped in a little bow and are ready to flash using the CustomRuu.exe. The developer has even included a set of instructions for an easy install on HD2’s running either NAND Android/WP7 or Win Mo 6.5.x.
Not convinced? Check out the original thread to see all 14 images and then decide for yourself.
