    • Grab or make one up a JPG, JPEG, PNG image file on your device resolution size
    • Put somewhere in the folder within your login user folder ( Just for easy )
    • Let say we put an jpg image with size 540 x 960 px in a folder /home/user/splash I made one for htc sensation, thus for easy remember I put name for image is sensation-splash.jpd
      $ cd /home/user/splash
