Modifying the T68 Sleep and Power Off Screens

I wanted to change my T68 so that when it is sleeping or off, the splash screen shows my contact details. This is just in case I leave it somewhere; people will know who it belongs to and how to contact me.

I copied the file /system/framework/framework-res.apk off my T68 to a Linux box. Using the jar tool, I unpacked the APK file:

Code:
jar vxf framework-res.apk
In the assets/images folder there are two files: standby-1.bmp and shutdown.bmp. They are 1440x1080 landscape greyscale images.

To replace them, I created two portrait 1080x1440 images with my photo and contact details. I rotated them clockwise to be in landscape format and saved them as greyscale BMP files, overwriting standby-1.bmp and shutdown.bmp.

Using the jar tool, I updated these two images in the framework-res.apk file:

Code:
jar uvf framework-res.apk assets/images/shutdown.bmp assets/images/standby-1.bmp
Using Root Explorer, I mounted the /system/framework folder read-write, and copied in the new framework-res.apk file. Then I rebooted the T68.

Whith the last version of firmware, it's more easy.

In the default explorer of the reader, you click on a jpg for a while, and in the menu context, click on "set as power off/sleep image"

I not remember the exact words, but it's similar to it.

hi,

tat sounds great, is it also possible to show kind of a screenshot of the sctual screen instead of any other image file.

i had this suggestion https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=259266

once, that the m96 should go asleep with its actual scren to have it sit besides you and still beein able to read the last page that you opened.

? any ideas to that?
thanks

Gernot

Nice work DoctorWkt

After doing this mod on my T68, it shows the new custom Power Off- and Sleepscreen but the bootanimation (with the progress indicator) is still using the old Power Off picture.
Is this also the case on your device?

Cheers, Vince

Yes, that is the case. I don't mind about that, I only wanted the sleep screen to have an image with me and my contact details, in case I lose the device. cheers, Warren
