VTC Mini load custom image
#1
Does anyone know how to load a custom image into the firmware that shows up on the VTC screen? I have seen several youtube videos of this being done but they are all in German or French.

First download the update software at http://www.Joyetech.com/mvr-software then download images for example at http://pictape.com/devices/custom-firmware-for-the-evic-vtc-mini-cuboid-rx200.php

Then conect your device to your Computer. Open the update software and click "update" choose one of the downloaded images and wait till it's done.

OK, I downloaded the software, opened the update file, imported an image on the last line like the youtube videos showed, saved my file and updated but it says update error. I reloaded the stock firmware and everything works again. I converted the image file to the correct file type and size but I guess I'm not putting it in the right place or there is something I'm still missing. I would like to have a custom logo somewhere on the screen and still see the wattage on the display. It would also be cool if I could put my name in the place where it says POWER but I don't know how to do that. Any ideas?

OK, I'm finally getting somewhere. I found a modded firmware version on Reddit that can be used to easily swap images into. I still haven't figured out how to modify the text yet though.[Image: 25eebf99-a437-441f-8b2c-679c7466e0df_zps...g~original] By the way I used translucent vinyl behind my screen to give it a blue tint.

You can use NFirmwareEditor - it is a toolbox (All in One), which includes image editor, string editor, patcher and bunch of patches for evic vtc mini.

I've had the same issue, I freaked out thinking it was over. But all you need to do is reinstall the firmware and it should work!

I think if there is problems with the firmware update the fix is to remove the battery and the tank, then do the update. I did it that way from the start with no problems. once your up to date you can change the logo without redoing the firmware update, and you don't have to remove the tank & battery.

Lets see what your trying to upload, it may be just a problem with the file. use the attachment link at the bottom of the message compose page to send a file in your reply, don't forget to click the Add Attachment button after you choose the file.
a common problem with custom logo image is trying to put a picture onto the device that is not 2 color palate.
