Prompt ★ ☆ [MOD] Remove Red Text on Splash screen | hboots | m7vzw | Dark Boot

Does the red development text on the splash screen bother you after unlocking your device?

If so, I have a modified hboot for you that takes care of it.
This was simply hex edited by me to remove the text from the screen, no other changes were made.
I have tested it and it is 100% proven to work without any side effects.

FROM THIS >>> TO THIS >>>


Let's get to it!
You must be S-Off to do this!


To Install:

  • Download your No Red Text hboot or Faux Locked hboot from the bottom of this post:

Modified 1.10.605.08 hboot

Modified 1.10.605.10 hboot

Modified 1.10.605.15 hboot

Modified 2.10.605.1 hboot

Modified 3.11.605.1 hboot

Modified 4.10.605.3 hboot

Modified 5.28.605.2 hboot
  • Place the zip in your fastboot/adb directory on your computer.
  • Put the device in fastboot mode
    (Volume down and power until menu appears, select fastboot using power button)
  • Connect the device to the computer
  • Enter the following commands from terminal/command prompt in the fastboot directory, one at a time:
  • fastboot oem rebootRUU (this puts the device in RUU mode)


  • fastboot flash zip nameoffile_hboot.zip (this flashes the modified hboot zip file)
Important: the flash process halts at around 75% to 90% on phone screen! This is normal and a safety precaution!
The last few percent is the reboot, which is NOT happening automatically, so you get a chance to check the console output before reboot to make sure it is safe to reboot!
The bar will only fill up to 100% once you type the following command:
  • fastboot reboot-bootloader (this reboots the device to bootloader)


That's it, you're done. You can now reboot and not see the red text anymore.

If you have any questions or issues, let me know.



Now for my RED TEXT:

Disclaimer
You are aware that writing to the security protected partitions increases your risk to lose the device exponentially.
You understand and agree that i cannot be held responsible for such or any other damages.
The flash process is theoretically safe and tested, however you are the brains behind the wheel and you are solely responsible for the execution of the process.
I will not accept any responsibility. The method itself is developed by Google and HTC, i only provide access and information to it and you execute it.

You understand that you should not do it if you are not willing to accept this risk.



If you plan on reverting to stock-relocked, for any reason:
You should follow the above steps first, but use this Stock Restore hboot instead.
Do this before you relock the bootloader.



-FAUX LOCKED HBOOTS-
(not really Locked and S-on but appear that way)



Since I initially posted this:
I had a couple requests for a modified hboot that shows the device as being Locked and S-On, while being completely unlocked and S-Off.
I went ahead and made that as per request and have tested it as well.
The process is the same as the one I wrote above, with the exception of the filename.

1.54 - 1.10.605.08 Faux Locked hboot.

1.54 - 1.10.605.10 Faux Locked hboot

1.54 - 1.10.605.15 Faux Locked hboot

1.55 - 2.10.605.1 Faux Locked hboot

1.56 - 3.11.605.1 Faux Locked hboot

1.57 - 4.10.605.3 Faux Locked hboot

1.xx - 5.28.605.2 Faux Locked hboot
Enjoy and be careful!!

Default Dark boot mod

DARK BOOTLOADER

I have modified and repackaged the Google Play Edition Dark Bootloader for safe flashing on the Verizon HTC ONE(m7)!

This was NOT originally made for the m7vzw.
You understand that although it has been well tested and used by me, that you are flashing this at your own risk!

Now that we got that out of the way, here is a picture of it and a download link!




Follow the same steps I outlined in the Original Post above.
ENJOY!

Thanks, I didn't see any difference in the hboots though.
So it's just pulled from the decrypted .08 RUU and it works fine for either one. (tested)

Done and done. Why does stuff like that make me nuts enough to jack with a perfectly good hboot? IDK. Thanks! Now If I can find a way to separate the ringer and notifications on a rom based on stock. It is my white whale.

I've never heard of such an error trying to do a task such as this.
Are you trying to use usb/adb/fastboot through a Virtual Machine or wireless adb or something?
You should be able to flash the zip if you were able to get the device to boot into RUU mode via command prompt from previous step.
I'm not sure how to help you without more information about your configuration or the specific error.
Try and get a screen capture if you can't grab the output from the terminal.
That's the best I can tell you without more to go on.
