This works for rooted phones only!!! If you are here you know this I take no credit just a great great guide to follow from xMemphisx (thanks buddy!)

This is updated with the latest tool. (Windows)
I included a zip with all files you may need at the bottom of the post.

1. Turn off your phone

2. Turn on the phone into bootloader (camera+power).
Make sure it say fastboot in the middle if not hit back and it should appear-

3. Make sure your device is found in device manger
If you don't see adb device up top in device manger find the yellow mark devices
Right Click, update driver, and point to the location of the USB Driver
http://dl.google.com/android/android_usb_windows.zip
http://dl.google.com/android/android-sdk-windows-1.5_r2.zip
If you have the "new spl" you're going to need the new usb drivers

4. Open and extract the below zip to your desktop
You should now have a custom and fastboot folder on your desktop

5. Open up a dos window (start>run>CMD)

6. Type cd desktop then cd fastboot

7. If you would not like to flash the sample images skip to step 9

8. copy and paste the command line by line
fastboot flash splash1 mysplash.rgb565
fastboot flash splash2 mysplash.rgb565 You dont get a splash2 option with the "NEW SPL"
fastboot reboot

Part 2 Making your own images
9. Open up the "create" folder

10. Run CreateG1Splash.exe

11. Open up your image in the program and click convert

12. Go to the folder of your images and their you will find mysplash.rgb565

13. Place the mysplash.rgb565 into the fastboot folder

14. copy and paste the command line by line
fastboot flash splash1 mysplash.rgb565
fastboot flash splash2 mysplash.rgb565
fastboot reboot

Enjoy Folks!

Good info MRC. Another way of getting to fastboot is to press Back and Power to boot.

I like this method because I keep Dreaimg.nbh on the root of my SD card, just in case something goes terribly wrong. Starting into bootloader (camera+power) It is possible to accidently press the power button and going back to Root Step 1

MRC, once again I agree with you. People need to understand how these things work before going to the automated processes. Without this 'knowing' they are unable to troubleshoot when something goes wrong. This is very similar to math, we must all learn to add, subtract, multiply and divide and have some ballpark idea of what the answer is before we start using a calculator. Its automation but a basic understanding of the principles are still needed.
