    I unlocked my mobile from Vodafone to 3 Ireland and I want to know how to get rid of the Vodafone splash screen when my phone boots up. Picture one is Vodafone. I want to replace it with my new mobile carrier 3 as shown in pic two.

    You would need to flash the phone with a different firmware variant but matching the hardware (RM-xxx product code), either an unbranded country /regional or a specific carrier.

    Ok how do i do this? I'm not a rom flashing noob lol. Flashed my fair share of Androids with Cyanogen mod and Clockwork mod for example.

    Sorry for the late reply. Ya I went on to the forum by doing a quick google search on how to do the flash and omg it was simple all you needed was three little programs a little ingenuity and alot of patience and a strong stomach because if u do it wrong the phone is gone kaput lol. I got it from XDA very useful and so simple. Thanks for your suggestion though. :)

    Hi RumouredNow I got it to work using the tutorial on XDA devs page. I found the windows phone central steps too confusing. Way too many for what is really a small 5 steps to get the custom three rom. I have it done and now my phone is fully three. Its nice to see my new network splash screen upon startup. Like having a new phone.

    ​Maybe, but the tutorial on Windows Central is not updated ;) It uses Nokia Care Suite (and an older version), while that of XDA (mine) uses WPID. Thus, all Lumia devices are compatible with WPID, not with NCS.

    I've just been playing with the P4D / SD card hack for Reg edits on my 830 and used it to change my ATT boot screen to:

    The shutdown screen swap did not take.
