Default Bootloader?

I wanted to know about unlocking the bootloader and if possible remove the Samsung galaxy grand gt-i9082 logo from start. Also, I forgot to backup the default CyanogenMod while downloading another one from ROM toolbox. So, of anyone could upload the default cm11's bootlogo zip. Thanks.

What rutvikrvr said,

Follow this guide to enable custom bootanimation and CM11 bootanimation is in the 3rd post.

What about an unlocked bootloader? Is it possible?

What exactly do you want to unlock in the bootloader.

The unlocked bootloader concept exists in HTC because they have a UI before you can access the recovery and flash image files. But for Samsung and Sony there are two distinct modes available, Recovery Mode and Download Mode, so there has been no point in messing with the bootloader.

In CyanogenMod 11, the option exists if we wanted to be prompted to enter a mode on boot. This drove me to curiositya and can't we remove the Samsung galaxy grand screen that shows at first.

I read through a handful of posts on XDA regarding this. From what I learnt is that it was possible till early 2011 by using busybox to make some files writable but since then members haven't been able to change the model number splash screen. But the loophole was closed by Samsung and it's now hard-coded into the bootloader. Editing the bootloader is possible, but editing or removing the boot splash screen is not an easy task to say the least.

... Also have a chance of HardBricking the phone if we edit the phone improperly.
