How to Create splash.img file:

To Change the Boot Logo of your Redmi Note 4 with custom Splash Screen of your choice, you need to Create an Image file (splash.img). Follow the Steps below:

Step 1: Download Redmi Note 4 Splash Maker zip file and Extract it on your computer.

Step 2: Make your Picture resolution 1080x1920 which you need to replace with default Boot Logo.

NOTE: Redmi Note 4 logo has a fixed size of 100kB allocated for splash image frame buffer. So only very light-weight pictures can be used. If you alter this limit in the script, the fastboot picture will not appear in fastboot mode.

It is Highly recommended to use a picture with 2 or 3 colours only. For example, Black and White pictures. That means you may need to check with many pictures till you get the perfect one.

Step 3: Done in messing up with the picture? Now rename your picture as logo.png or logo.jpg according to its format and replace it inside "pics" folder of the extracted file.

Step 4: Finally, run the 'CREATE_LOGO.bat' to create the splash.img file, which you can find inside the "output" folder after completion.

NOTE: If You Stuck up with an error like "PICTURE IS LARGE IN SIZE", it is not possible to create a logo with that picture.

In that case, try these: Use compressPNG.com to reduce the number of colours in PNG picture. Upload your picture, click Settings, reduce the number of colours to 2, Apply and download it and try again.

How to Flash splash.img:

Via Recovery: Transfer the flashable_splash.zip to your device and flash from TWRP or CWM or Philz or any other custom recovery.

Via Terminal Emulator: Transfer the splash.img to your device's Internal Storage, Open Terminal Emulator & enter the following to flash it:
su
dd if=/sdcard/splash.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/splash
Via Fastboot mode: fastboot flash splash splash.img

In case something goes wrong with your device, or device does not boot up, flash the stock splash.img from custom recovery or fastboot.
