The phone IS rooted though, everything's working, it seems to be just a cosmetic thing (the 'tampered' thing I mean). Or are there any implications I'm not aware of?

tampered happens anytime you flash a custom recovery or boot.img. It is perfectly normal

S-off when we get it usually has a switch to remove tampered

You will still see the red text, but its nothing to worry about.
But that time is not yet here.

Once S-OFF, the red text is easy to remove.

Hey Cap, I was just looking at the hboot you posted with a hex editor and found the red text string. Is it as simple as removing that string saving it and then flashing the hboot through the bootloader?

Not custom - just modified stock. See below.

That's the basic concept. I zero out the entire string, and it no longer shows. That's the quick and dirty way to do it. The pros disable the flag that makes it show in the first place, but I know nothing about doing such things .

OK I'm doing that now and will test it. What's the name of the zip file I have to put in the SD card to flash it?

Ha... I guess it would help if I had S-OFF first. 😱 I'm so used to flashing with my old phone that I forgot about that on the new phone.
