After boot_logo you can see animation. It is located in bootanimation.zip file. You can create this file with the Gif2BootAnimation program.

Some technical information.
Update.zip file, created by program by default, flashes logo.bin via package_extract_file("logo.bin", "/dev/logo"). This method is useful for many contemporary MTK phones (eg. ZP100, ZP300, THL W3+ and so on), but some phones doesn't have /dev/logo/ and needed to be flashed via write_raw_image("logo.bin","logo").
To adapt the program for your phone, just put suitable updater-script and update-binary files to program folder. It will use these files with all new projects.

The program developed with support of china-iphone forum.

Known errors

Lenovo A750: Sometimes phone shows error while charging powered off. Be careful.

ATTENTION!!!

1) Remember! All that you do with your phone you do at your own risk. Program just prepares new logo.bin file.
2) Don't forget to make backups.
3) Don't change updater-script file if you don't know what it contains.
4) Don't use the program if you don't know what it really does.
