To those who unlocked their bootloaders and are now being greeted with an annoying "Bootloader Unlocked" warning. If you just want your good old Motorola boot screen back. I've written a short and sweet tool to do so.

Just make sure you've got your drivers installed, USB debugging is enabled and that you have UNZIPPED this package BEFORE you run it.

Download Link Below
Unzip
Plug in Phone
Hit "Run"

For those curious how this works. It reboots your phone into Fastboot mode and then flashes an img to your "logo" partition using the code

And then reboots your device. It's actually quite simple. But it was requested how it works :)

Honestly, sometimes its just easier to whip up a quick batch file then it is to try to explain to the "less experienced" people how to fix this.

and I hope you took my comment with all the respect with which is was intended. I was going to try myself from the first post, as I believe in learning as much as possible, by doing where possible. This hit at just the right time, so I went this route. BUT, I did open and read the files I could first, again, just to see what was going on.

A good day for all!

@tucstwo Might I suggest you put the info in the OP to also do it using fastboot for folks who don't want to use a 1-click. Just a thought as I know there are ppl like myself who steer clear of 1-clicks and really its not hard to type 1 line of command once you have the *.img needed

Just out of curiosity, could we delete the logofile and insert our own? If so, what dimensions, size, file type, etc..do we need?

Thanks in advance!

Yes I'm sure it is easier to whip up a utility than to explain to us noobs how to flash or fastboot things. And I'm sure im not speaking out of place but we (noobs) appreciate the utilities and basically everything you guys (devs) do for us.

I am trying to do this in linux(and maybe throw together a bash script for the linux users) but I keep having trouble. I grabbed hash's linux fastboot.bin off goo, and put that in your folder and made it executable(chmod a+x). I am using your bat for command reference. As far as I know the adb stuff should be the same on win and linux, so I first do:

Great, I am in the bootloader now! All I need to do is use fastboot to flash the moto logo bin, right? So I am doing:

but it just says <waiting for device> even though my device says usb connected. I know adb can be picky sometimes with old sessions so I tried unplugging the phone and plugging it back in. Still waiting...so

Still not seeing my phone..so I reboot and checked usb debugging was on. it is. I checked if adb sees the device while in fuzion. It does.

I noticed the same basic problem, waiting for device, when I unlocked my bootloader. Everything went great. It pushes the files via the adb bridge. It executes it fine. Cleans it up fine, and then it boots in to the bootloader to execute:
read -n 1
and it fails waiting for the device.

Any ideas why my phone cant be seen by adb in fastboot? I am using the android-linux-tools package from the webupd8 ppa on a Kubuntu 12.10 x64 system with a brand new gigabyte mobo.

While I am going to be of very little help here as I know very little about Linux, I will tell you that the only time I've had a problem like this in the past was because of lacking certain drivers. There are different drivers for fastboot, ADB and booted up android. S while it may be communicating just fine while booted, it may not while in the bootloader.

Also, just so I'm clear, when you're in Ap fastboot the command needed to check to communication is:
./fastboot devices

Not ./adb devices

Just wanted to make sure you're using the right command there.

Ah, well tbh ./fastboon.bin devices still is not showing the device. I am probably better off starting a topic on this, thanks anyways.

My next guess would be a driver error. Some of my favorite past times with Linux :rolleyes:

Oh and FYI I tried your utility under a Win 8 VM. I get a pop up saying AdbWinApi.ddl could not be found when it is sitting in the folder like it should be. This confuses me because according to your OP, this is a pretty much set up to be "portable" if you will.

OK in the win 8 VM I installed the moto drivers and android SDK. I added the android-tools folder to my path and rebooted. Now I tried the script and got no error. The script ran and claimed to be rebooting my phone to fast boot but it didn't. So I tried loading cmd and doing things manually. Rebooted fine but once in fast boot the same problem..waiting for device.

Now I did try USB ports on the mono before, but not this time. About the only thing I haven't tried is a different cable..

SUCCESS!! Turns out I simply needed to be root. I am going to try to make up a linux script for linux users and hope you will add it to the OP.

This works so well that I have been changing my boot image just because I can. You can also use this little package to install custom images which requires Photoshop to adjust color and save as a RAW image and then setting the extension file to .img or .bin file. Check out

The .img/.bin files just simply need to be placed in the folder of the extracted Fix Unlocked Bootloader Warning, change the logo.bin to logo.bin.bak and rename the image you want to install to logo.bin (even if its a .img file -doesn't matter).

Only one of the images in the zip file is a .bin file (the Slayer one) it won't flash the other 2. I don't know how to change them to a .bin file. When I try to open them it wants to burn a disc. They are disc image files. Please help.

It's real simple. When you rename it also change the img extension to bin. ;)
