Customize Your EVO LTE Bootloader
Currently, users can customize their Android phones in a large number of ways. From choosing a launcher, installing one of hundreds of thousands of applications, and even down to small things like font selection and the number of home screens; every Android phone has the capacity to truly one-of-a-kind.
Now, HTC EVO 4G LTE owners have yet another way to personalize their devices. XDA Recognized Contributor regaw_leinad, who’s already aided in development for the EVO LTE, brings us another modification to customize your bootloader. What exactly does this entail? According to regaw_leinad:
RegawMOD Bootloader Customizer is a utility for Windows that allows the
user to create a PJ75IMG.zip 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.
Essentially, users can customize their bootloader to appear however they would like. One especially interesting option is to change the bootloader to make it appear as though it is S-On, even if it isn’t. Using this tool, users can make their bootloaders look practically un-hacked.
To get started, head over to the original thread.
