Hello Weston ,

I am using Tablet, having ST-Ericsson Nova A9500 processor , and ICS 4.0.3 android OS.
When I run the benchmark tool , Caffeinemark , which measures JVM performance ,
It is giving me the least performance.
How can i increase JVM performance ? On what parameters, does this performance depends?

Regards.

Re: [android-porting] Re: Customising Splash Screen in ICS Alvin Wong 9/25/12 8:25 AM
Hi,

In your `device.mk`, add this to `PRODUCT_COPY_FILES` (I believe if
you're porting Android you should have this file?) (checked against
2.3.7_r1 but should work on later build environments):

PRODUCT_COPY_FILES += \
        $(LOCAL_PATH)/path/to/initlogo.rle:root/initlogo.rle

And when building, it will automatically be copied to the output directory.
The root is in `<out-target-device>/root` and it is automatically
packed to `ramdisk.img` (gziped CPIO image), and is further packed
into `boot.img` for flashing to typical devices (which is the most
commonly used method among Android devices). If you use your own
method (e.g. using a single ext4 partition on SD card or nfs or
loading initrd via U-Boot) just copy it to the root or perform the
relevant operations.

If it doesn't work, check whether `initlogo.rle` is located in the
root directory (usually ramdisk). If not you may need to do a rebuild
or perform `make installclean` before building.

Alvin Wong

Re: [android-porting] Re: Customising Splash Screen in ICS Alvin Wong 9/28/12 8:19 AM
Hi,

The Android boot process (not counting bootloader) is in two parts.
The first part `init` will display `initlogo.rle` if there is one.
Once the boot process is further, the `bootanimation` will display the
boot animation `bootanimation.zip` (possible in three locations) or if
there is none, the built-in "ANDROID" animation. So if you want to
display your boot screen instead of the "ANDROID" animation, you will
have to create a `bootanimation.zip` and place it in `/system/media/`
to replace the built-in animation. There is a nice tool for doing that
under Windows <http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1678540>

For your problem I assume you didn't used the correct resolution or
orientation for the `initlogo.rle`.

Alvin Wong

Hello Alvin ,

Cheers!!!
And thank you very much for all your support.
bootanimation is working great for me. I am really enjoying it.

And , I would like to resolve the initlogo.rle as soon.
Please do update me.

Hi,

Well then I think I should post the direct link to the download of
"Boot Animation Factory"<http://db.tt/cYSGtjn1>. I helped you
converted the pngs to 32-bit colour depth and re-compressed the files
as store and I reset the size to 256x256. You see the difference in
file size. Test whether it works.

For your initlogo.rle, what method did you used to create the .rle
image? An actual photo of how it shows can really helps.

Hello Alvin,

I am attaching the file , containing procedures i used for initlogo.rle creation.
script file will explain you the process i am carrying out.
1. first i will run the to565.c file,
2. then run the script file with commands,
    # ./splash.sh splash.jpeg
3. i use the initlogo.rle file created .

Regarding bootanimation , i am building the source code , will test the image and reply you.

Hello Alvin,

Thank you for the information, its helping me in great.

1> With respect to Boot animation ,
I have placed the bootanimation.zip in source/vendor/bootanimation/bootanimation.zip.

In my "device.mk" , i added the "PRODUCT_COPY_FILES"
PRODUCT_COPY_FILES += \
        $(LOCAL_PATH)/path/to/bootanimation.zip:system/media/bootanimation.zip

But, when device boots up, i am neither getting default android animation nor the one
placed by me, ie bootanimation.zip
i am getting completely black screen, during the boot up, then the home screen appears after completion .


2. With respect to initlogo.rle.
  I am trying this in 7inch tablet, having 480x800 resolution.
I used the same image having 480x800 resolution .
still i am getting, two images side by side, covering half screen.

Please suggest me regarding the same.

Regards.
Shivanagouda.

Hello Alvin,

The Link that you are mentioning below,
not able to open it, as it keeps browsing continuously without opening page .

I am attaching my initlogo.rle and jpeg image used.

I am also attaching the bootanimation.zip file, that i am using.

Regards.
Shivanagouda.

Re: [android-porting] Re: Customising Splash Screen in ICS Shivan 10/3/12 6:18 AM
Hello Alvin,

With respect bootanimation,
I am using the existing boot animation , downloaded from android forum.
i made the modification in desc.txt, where i changed the the resolution .

480  800 24    
p  1 0 part0
p  0 0 part1

the old one was,
320  320  24
p  1 0 part0
p  0 0 part1

and , what exactly is meant by save mode?
how to zip in save mode?

2. In the second part , with respect to initlogo.rle ,
   I tried with both the resolutions ,
  480x800 pixels and 800x480 pixel .
Its not resolving my problem .



Regards.
Shivanagouda .

You're welcome :)

And for initlogo.rle, do you have a photo? You didn't described the
situation as clearly as I would have expected. You can perhaps try
looking for other scripts that does the same thing in a different way,
mainly in XDA forum.
Re: [android-porting] Re: Customising Splash Screen in ICS Alvin Wong 10/5/12 1:37 AM
Hi,

First of all, I have received your older email. You don't need to resend just because I haven't replied.

For initlogo.rle, try using a png as the source image instead.

For boot sound, I have no idea.
