    I would like to make my OS generic without the carrier logo (like AT&T on the startup screen or when you start browser).

    How do I do that?

    Thanks.

    Yes, it is called de-branding and quite risky to do.

    The start-up logo is in hardware; it's not part of your OS. As the poster above noted, it can be done through the process of de-branding, which is not the same as unlocking and isn't done by most unlockers as far as I can tell by reading their posts.

    On older BB's it's quiet simple...
    But, on 9700 not yet...

    You can always wipe you phone or brick the phone... That won't get you a splash screen...

    The software used to de-brand a phone is the illegal part. It is proprietary RIM software for internal use only.

    Why can't someone else design some non-proprietary software that would access the JVM like the MFI? Is that possible?

    In theory some one could, but it would not be an easy task at all.

    I have seen this question a lot lately, and has been mentioned, it is a quick way to turn your BB in that much more landfill material. Why is it so important to not have to briefly see a carrier screen on occasion?

    Agreed, while my phone is booting, I dont even look at it. I holster it and know to pull it out in about 5 minutes for use again

    People act like the splash screen is a Medusa. If they see the carrier logo, they'll turn to stone.
