I don't believe this is possible, of course there is no reason you couldn't start your app with your own qml splash screen with animations.

Re: BB 10 app splash screen

Currently the app has a static image of loading screen and its just needs to be updated with additional 3 images of loading in a sequence.Is there any way of doing it in qml where have the changes have to be made. also app is built on bb 10 sdk 10.2 release..

Re: BB 10 app splash screen

The only way to do it would be to set your main.qml to initially load the three images, very easy using qml animations.

Re: BB 10 app splash screen

just make your main.qml look like your splashscreen, and start doing stuff from there

 

imagine this: an app where the main screen looks exactly like the splashscreen, and does nothing else. the app loads, shows it's splashscreen, then loads the main.qml directly BUT still shows the same image (because it looks the same). a user who sees that app will think that the splashscreen is still there. And you can load/do whatever you want, and/or animate your three additional images

 

It's a simple trick to fake, and many apps do that (e.g. Jetpack Joyride)
