Remove Tampered Text!

S-Off required
This is quite a lengthy process but this will remove the tampered text competely and not leave just a blank space at the top, you will need adb, fastboot, 2.20 RUU, recovery img and your Unlock_code.bin, so here goes:

First of all do a FULL backup in recovery (your phone will be wiped so dont miss doing this!)
While your phone is doing that heave over here to download the 2.20 RUU: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1814217
When backup has completely reboot into fastboot
do: fastboot oem lock
Reboot into Bootloader
Run the RUU downloaded earlier
When it has finished do: fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin (Dont panic if this fails, it failed for me all you need to do is go to HTCDev and unlock bootloader following the instructions)
When that has completed go back into fastboot and flash your recovery back: fastboot flash recovery twrp.img (twrp.img or whatever img your recovery is called)
Once done enter recovery and restore the backup you made earlier
After this you are all done for the main part but remember you flashed an RUU so everything an RUU flashes needs to be flashed back to what you want, this means reflash the HBoot, Splash image, radio and anything else that the RUU changes that you want to be different from the RUU
Done! Enjoy no tampered text in Bootloader


For those that want a quick easy flash with only red text removed please scroll down

For One XL/Evita Only! Hboot only will be flashed. S-Off is required. This can be flashed on any HBoot and can be used to easily downgrade hboot.

Can anyone work out what causes the loading bar to show or disappear?

New method, customize your HBoot!

Please note this method is currently untested (although I have hex compared the before and after hboots and all the changes seem 100% fine)

I have made plug-ins for RegawMOD Bootloader Customizer

RegawMOD Bootloader Customizer allows you to remove the red text or change it to something else, change s-off text to s-on, change the build date/time and change the *** Unlocked *** text

Download the main app from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1786498

Then download the plug-ins from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1&postcount=89

Choose the plug-in dependant on what version of hboot you want

Place the plug-in and RegawMOD Bootloader Customizer exe in the same directory and open the exe. Choose your options and create a zip and place that zip in your adb folder

boot into bootloader and enter fastboot mode.
do:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot flash zip PJ83IMG.zip (Or whatever you called the zip when you saved it)
fastboot reboot

Quick simple flash that only removes red text:

Here it is for anyone that wants it:

HBoot 1.09: http://d-h.st/bt9
HBoot 1.14: http://d-h.st/pZ1
HBoot 2.14: http://d-h.st/J1T
HBoot 2.15: http://d-h.st/toS (Thanks to exad)
HBoot 2.18: http://d-h.st/Tnu


Make sure you have fastboot and adb installed
Place downloaded file in same directory as fastboot and adb is installed
boot into bootloader and enter fastboot mode.
do:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot flash zip RemoveText-1.09.zip (for 2.14 version RemoveText-2.14.zip)
fastboot reboot

This simply mods the hboot to remove the red text



Some people report issues with erase cache command, if you have the problem to fix simply go into recovery and wipe cache

This has been flashed and confirmed 100% working but as always we need a disclaimer:
I can not be held responsible for this zip please flash at your own risk!!

Re: [HBoot Mod] Remove red text from splash screen
Well we do have s-off so the 2.14 hboot won't mess anything up.. However, is there a way to do so on an older hboot

If this can be confirmed working I can happily make another for different hboot versions...

EDIT: By this I mean the current one can be flashed if you are on any hboot version but you will end up with 2.14 hboot afterwards. If this is confirmed working I can make one so you end up with 1.09 hboot after flash...
