I'm no longer supporting this standalone program for the HTC Evo 4G LTE. I have created a universal application that does the same thing for all S-OFF HTC devices (such as the HTC One series... etc.) HERE

RegawMOD Bootloader Customizer is a utility for Windows that allows the
user to create a containing a custom bootloader image.
With this program, you are able to edit the text on the pink banner at the top
(***LOCKED*** in stock or ---LazyPanda--- in custom),
change the S-OFF to S-ON, and hide/customize the splash screen disclaimer.

Choosing the "Stock Look" option is just like relocking your bootloader
and flashing the stock bootloader without having to do either of them! Very easy!

This program will NOT flash the zip for you, but it will allow you to save it to your computer to let you flash the zip yourself.
The process (flashing a new bootloader) is dangerous and may possibly brick your device if done incorrectly. You have been warned.

Please see Post #2 for a great video walkthrough by wwjoshdew on how to use this!


Windows w/ .NET 3.5 or higher
Flashing the that this utility produces REQUIRES your device to be LazyPanda S-OFF.

1. Run the RegawMOD Bootloader Customizer.exe on your computer.
2. Either choose "Stock Look" from the options,
or customize your look and feel using the text box at the top and options below.
The preview on the right will update live as you change the text and options.
You can change the splash screen text by selecting "Custom Developer Disclaimer".
3. Press "Create Zip"

How To Flash A
  1. Place the on the root of your external sdcard. (Copy it right onto your sdcard, not in any folder)
  2. Reboot the phone into the bootloader by either:
    • Powering off your phone completely, then hold Volume-Down and Power until the phone boots into the bootloader
    • If you have the android sdk set up, type 'adb reboot-bootloader'
    • Use my RegawMOD Rebooter
  3. Then select the menu option "Bootloader" and press the power button.
    • If you rebooted the manual way (Volume-Down + Power) You should already be at this menu
  4. It will load the from your sdcard and ask you to accept the flash.
  5. Press Volume Up to flash
  6. Once prompted, press Power to reboot
  7. Pro-Tip #1 (thanks dsEVOlve): Remove the from your sdcard so it doesn't load next time you enter the bootloader.

Actually, on the topic of the developer text, it may not be a bad idea to be able to put some custom text in there. Something like, "If found, please call so and so at xxx-xxx-xxxx", or similar?

I thought the original was "*** Security Warning ***"
