Every now and then, an overly cool plugin comes around for the PSVita. This time, it’s Princess Of Sleeping’s Custom Boot Splash plugin which lets you change your boot screen to whatever image you want!
What is Custom Boot Splash?
Custom Boot Splash is a plugin by PSVita developer Princess Of Sleeping who seems to be quite fond of messing around with system files.
This plugin allows you to change your PSVita/PSTV’s boot screen to any static image you desire which, in my opinion, increases the coolness factor of hacking your PSVita ten-fold! Obviously, this supports FW 3.60/5 as it requires Enso to work.
In order to avoid any confusion, what is shown when the PSVita boots is explained here in order:
Boot Logo – this is the Enso or PS logo
This plugin can’t fully bypass this so it’s momentarily shownn
Custom Boot Splash takes over and your custom image is shown
This replaces the Enso/PS logo which stays there for a few seconds without this plugin
First of all, it must be noted that this plugin requires modification of HENkaku Enso’s ‘boot_config.txt’ file which is an important file for loading Enso. That being said, it’s pretty hard to screw up since the process of installing and using this plugin is pretty easy.
This is how your boot_config.txt has to look like
To use Custom Boot Splash, you have to do this:
Get on a PC – This will make your life easier
Open VitaShell, start the FTP server and connect to it from your PC using software like WinSCP
