Custom Anytone Boot Images

 If anyone wants a custom startup / boot screen for the Anytone line of radios (868, 878, 578), Dustin N8RMA is happy to put something together for you. These are custom made images that are formatted to be uploaded to your Anytone radio to make it your own!

You can request one of these here: Custom Boot Screen

Installing a custom boot screen

I have confirmed these steps on the 868 and the 878. I've not had a chance to try on the new 578 yet, so you may have to play around with it.

  1. Make sure the CPS is open, and radio connected
  2. Select your COM port by clicking Set | Set COM
  3. Click Tool | Boot Image
  4. Click Open Image and select the new boot screen
  5. Click Write
For the Anytone 868:
  1. Within the CPS, click Optional Settings
  2. Select the Power-on Tab
  3. From the Power-on Interface dropdown, select Custom Picture
  4. Write the settings to the radio
When it reboots, you should see your custom boot screen.

For the Anytone 878 (thanks for N8FNR for these):
  1. Restart radio
  2. Open main menu
  3. Go to settings
  4. Select [1] Radio set
  5. Select [15] Start Display
  6. Select "Customers Pic"
  7. Reboot the radio
When it reboots, you should see your custom boot screen.
