I have a T-mob G2, rooted, currently running FroydVillain 1.5 (Froyo).
All is fine except for the annoyance of the initial boot screen that says G2 and T Mobile. It doesn't affect anything else but I want rid of it. I have never used the Goldcard installation routine, never needed to as when I flashed the recovery image originally, it was still on an appropriate ROM level to allow this without a Goldcard.
Two questions then:
Do I need to "Goldcard" the phone to get rid of the splash screen?
Would "Goldcarding" unlock the phone - it's still currently locked to T Mob. Would I need to install a basic standard HTC ROM and then reflash, or just continue to use FroydVillain?
Sorry if all of this has been answered elsewhere, if it has please link me to it?
