    I know that the Palm logo can be replaced with another for loading up WebOS when the phone is turned on. I'm curious if it is possible to simply make the logo screen completely transparent so it would actually show the linux boot, so it would show each process being loaded. Any ideas on the possibility of this?

    Why don't you just give it a try? You can edit the boot images with WebOS quick install... and you can create a transparent image with a free editor called Gimp. Tutorials are widely available online if you don't know how to use the software.

    I'll look into this. I didn't know about that option.

    I am interested to see if this works.

    I made you a transparent PNG in Photoshop. Try it and see what happens.

    Try this one. I'm not sure it will work, but it is a 32 bit TGA with alpha channels.

    It's in a zip file because the uploader won't accept TGA.

    OK. Now you're just messing with me. You had mentioned that a TGA file might work better than a PNG, hence my previous post.

    Sorry about that. I removed the part of my post about Boot-logo.tga after I searched and found the thread about which files to replace (which ended up being png files) and using WebOSQI to do it. Then I noticed someone had already mentioned that it was done with WebOSQI, so I felt like a tool.

    That's two strikes now huh.

    Ha Ha. I'm just giving you the business.

    Did the PNG work then?

    Haven't tried it yet because my cable is in the other room. I read something in that thread about being able to use different size images, so it makes me think it is going to throw it into graphics mode with a black background and not show the text.

    Edit: Nope. After the initial non-glowing Palm logo the screen just went to solid black. (Which frankly is a bit scary after you've just tweaked your phone. )
