Custom Anytone D878UV Boot Screen

If you want to customize the boot screen on the 878, it’s quite simple to do with your favorite image editor.

  2. Save/Export it as a bitmap (.bmp) file
  3. Within the CPS software, select your COM port by clicking Set | Set COM
  4. Click Tool | Boot Image
  5. Click Open Image and select your file
  6. Click Write

That’s it. Here is the basic boot image that I created for my D878UV:

    1. Sorry, I just stumbled on a bunch of messages that went to Spam! I actually went to looked for “Small Fonts” to install. There are some installed by Windows/Mac as well that appear clear. I think one is even called “small font” or something similar. Also, make sure you are not starting with a large image, then resizing. Start with the actual size and then put your text on. Resizing causes a bunch of aliasing.
