Mine was done with a USB thumb drive and a sequence of buttons I had to press to get to the customize menu.

The Alpine rep at my local car audio shop installed mine for free but didn't give me a zip file.

How do I do that on a INE-S920HD

VERY NICE.

I have the little brother to your head unit - mine is the INE-S920HD, and I believe they have similar operating systems. Please post the procedure and I'll see if it works on my '920.

I already tried the obvious stuff - putting the jpg on a thumb drive and walking through all the set-up menus on the unit, but I didnt' see a "Change Splash Screen" option.

THANKS !

I contacted alpine and they said it had to b done by an alpine installer. But I'm sure if someone knows the button combination we could do it ourselves

It works on the IVE-535HD, INE-S920HD, INE-W927HD & INE-Z928HD. Your local authorized Alpine dealer can do it for you if his rep has shared the files with them, but please don't ask them to share the info with you. It could get them into trouble with Alpine and technically can void your Alpine warranty. This hack was only intended for expeditor dealers, not for retail dealers. If you ever need service you must revert the splash to the default image or they may refuse your warranty repair, just a warning.

Found this thread while googling how to change the splash screen on my Alpine INE-W927HD. I ended up finding the procedure at a Porsche forum. It worked perfectly. I used to have a Tacoma and was registered here, didn't wanna leave any of you guys still looking to do this hanging. Here's what I found:

"Here is the sequence:

1) Put the splash screen image on the root of a USB memory stick. The filename should be: apn_pa_opening.bmp (all lowercase)

Two things you need to know. First, make sure the image is 24 bit bitmap (BMP) format. The preferred size is 800x480; if you use a smaller size, it will center it as best as it can. Now if you want it to work, you should take your desired image and save it into 24-bit BMP using Microsoft Paint, the crummy Paint program that comes standard with Windows. MAKE SURE TO USE PAINT -- for some reason, the Alpine firmware is very touchy and needs the Paint format. I have a Mac and used a very good file conversion software utility to convert my PNG image into 24-bit BMP, and the Alpine didn't accept it and locked up with a "Please Wait" message. Windows Paint is the standard, so use that and make sure it actually reserves the image in that format. If you have a Mac like me, borrow a friend's Windows machine and use Paint to resave it into 24-bit BMP.

Second, make sure the USB stick is formatted as FAT32. If you format it in Mac format, for example, the Alpine won't recognize it. Same with older formats like FAT16. You can do a "properties" on the USB drive to see its current format; if it's wrong, reformat it as FAT32.

2) Turn on your Alpine, plug the USB memory device into your USB port. (There does not appear to be any desired order here; you can plug the USB in before powering up, doesn't seem to matter.)

3) As others have mentioned, press the BAND soft key (on the touch screen) for two or more seconds. You will find this by setting the current audio/music to either FM or AM band, and the "BAND" key will be on the screen.

4) Press the NAV/AUDIO split screen soft key (on the touch screen). This will move to a split screen mode, obviously.

5) Press the PHONE key (hard key); on my unit this is a physical key on the bottom.

6) Press the VOLUME DOWN key (hard key); again on my unit this is a physical key.

If it works, you should see a "Please Wait" message pop up on the screen a bar or other progress indicator. If the format is correct, it should keep that message up for three or four seconds, and then reboot the head unit, and you will see your desired splash screen upon startup. "


Hope this helps. Also, I saved my file using Paint Shop Pro 7 and had no issues. So, don't take his "Only us MS Paint" thing to heart.
