    Startup Screen& Branding

    I have been visiting these threads for a while now and a couple of thoughts have just crossed my mind. Where do the branding/statup screens reside? Can this be customised? If I want to remove Vodafone Live and if so how? Vodafone live must be the most inappropriate software on the Storm, in fact on all the phones I`ve had. On other units I could flash alternative sofware and get rid of all branding. Is this possible?

    I have loaded / reloaded....wiped and re wiped my storm since the launch date and the carrier splash screen is always there. Even with all of the hybrids and shrinks and even the theme building I've done, I've never seen the option to get rid of it or remove / change it.

    As for the Vodafone live, I'm not too familiar with that software. What does it do?

    Vodafone live is essentially a browser specific to Vodafone to give access to various sites offering junk for sale icluding the normal ringtones, wallpapers, games etc etc. A waste of time. A revenue generating gimmic to attract suckers!

    Branding is carrier specific and it doesn't change with any OS changes. If you want to get rid of Vodafone stuff, you would have to completely "jailbreak" and remove that. Its illegal though and voids your warranty. As far as software, unfortunately I am on vzw,so don't know much about Vodafone processes but I suspect it has something to do with service books.

    Olta is right, on the branding explanation, but this can be modified, is firmware modification, you can do it using the MFImultiloader (no answer if you ask here), the process require a couple of steps and a some others files, and of course you need to know your vendor id, and the vendor id wich you want to brand to, you can also brand to a RIM splash screen, to have personalized screen the process is to hard and software to do that is very limited, and also you can revert the process to brand to your original carrier if needed, as for the vodafone live, you can hide the icon at least.
