This is a modded version of the accept screen, it's not something we have in the UK, but try using navtweak2.6 (not 2.7) this may let you save.

It's not too bad actually...

If you haven't got a 16:9 screen, here's how to make an image look good on 4:3 screens:

1. Create your original image as a 400 x 312, or a multiple of that (800 x 624 also works, for example.)

2. When you've got that as you want it, resize it to 400 x 234. I use - this is done via the resize option on the image menu. (untick "maintain aspect ratio" of course!) It will look stretched and out of proportion at this point. Then save it as a GIF.

3. Using Navtweak, replace the splashscreen in the usual way with the 400 x 234 GIF file you just made

4. When you install the new Nav OS, this distorted image automatically becomes squashed (as Ratty has discovered) back into the 400 x 312 proportions, so it looks as you intended.

All good fun!

Hope this helps
Nice one Graham.
