I still get the feeling that you too don't have experience in changing the splash screen in Xcode, otherwise you would have explained this is in one of your many replies.
If you do know then please explain, otherwise you are simply guessing with basic answeres that I have already tried, as said in my original post.
I have experience with xcode and have changed and lanuchimage set, but it is as if the cordova project ignores the lanuchimage set and still uses its own. I have even created a new launchimage set in xcode and assigned it to my project, yet the construct launch image still shows up.
I appreciate your willingness to help, so please feel free to try it yourself, find the answer and let us all know how its done.
