Default [Q] Remove the lock?

Hello, on all the phones I've rooted before and had a tampered logo somewhere on the boot screen, I was able to remove it, but on this phone I have no idea how to get rid of the unlocked lock on the Google boot screen, anyone know how to fix this? Or is it impossible?
Device: Samsung Galaxy S3 Nexus 7 (2013)
ROM: Stock 4.3 MK3 Stock 4.4.2
Carrier: Sprint

Or since you're rooted, try BootUnlocker and lock/unlock the bootloader whenever you want...

But if I lock the bootloader wont I not be able to flash things without unlocking it again? I flash things way to often, I figured there'd be a way to just simply hide it. I've accomplished this on other phones.

You can still flash from recovery with a locked bootloader, just not from the bootloader itself (fastboot). And you can just unlock it using BootUnlocker anytime you want to flash with fastboot... it's that easy.

I don't know if you can just hide the icon without locking... most of us here don't care about the icon... it's just part of what makes a Nexus a Nexus. I personally enjoy seeing it when my devices boot up - it reminds me that I bought a device that supports unlocking and flashing out of the box without hacks.
