I will list here all Hacks for Your TomTom

I RECOMMEND YOU TO DO A BACKUP FIRST BEFORE TRYING ANY HACK!

All hacks below require a PC, the USB cable and a file explorer to modify some files on the amovible disk.

Replace the start/stop boot splash images

Open the file splash.bmp with Your favorite graphic editor (for example www.gimp.org ) and put it under the root of the filesystem. You can like me, add your own background, your pictures and contact informations, just in case it get lost. Moreover many people wont be able to replace the modded picture and that will decrease th value of the device for thief.

Recover unused space on your card

You can empty the directory /scripts this directory contains pictures displayed during the demo. Gain: 900Kb
