Default [S-OFF][MOD]Remove Tampered banner with flashable zip. Also zip if you want it back!

I got the actual command from this thread.I've just created the flashable zip
YOU NEED S-OFF TO DO THIS

I hope scotty1223 doesn't mind

This zip just removes the tampered banner from the bootloader. I've also included a zip to revert it back just in case you want it(for some reason :P)
Just flash the zip from the recovery and you're done!

I was not sure if I should create a new thread or not. If any mods believe that I shouldn't just delete the thread.

************************************NOTE********** ***********************************

I've tested this only on International M8. If you want to make sure this is going to work on your variant then type this command in a terminal emulator or ADB Shell:

Code:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p6.img
This will create a file in your SD Card. Upload the file here and I'll check and tell you whether this MOD is going to work for your variant.

UPDATE:
RemoveV2.zip is a bit safer to flash! It checks if the byte at the specific offset is indeed the correct byte before replacing it with a null byte.

Thanks for this easy mod but I have a quick question, do I flash this on the TWRP recovery or the stock recovery? Thanks in advance

I think it works but if you want to make sure
in a terminal emulator or an adb shell type this:

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p6.img

Now there is a file on your sdcard with the name mmcblk0p6.img
Send me the file and I'll tell you if it's going to work
Click Thank you!
