    Death to the Death Star - Removing AT&T apps & logos

    Where can I find information on customizing the boot logo (removing the animated AT&T screen)?

    Is anyone familar enough with the file system to tell me how to uninstall the AT&T address book (as opposed to disabling it)?

    Need ROOT to change/erase the bootanimation.zip file because it's a system file. Erasing the bootanimation.zip will cause a black screen during the period when the bootanimation is suppose to be displayed(phone still boots OK). Most people just copy a new bootanimation into the /data/local folder.

    A long time ago I made this one for the original Atrix. Also reformatted another bootanimation.zip that was originally made for another phone-Apple Boot Animation.

    Neither of these will work for the Atrix 2 because it's formatted for a different display. However, the installation procedure in those threads may help you if you find a bootanimation for your phone that you like.

    Nouser, you need to be extremely precise about the second question you asked. I don't recall there being an "AT&T address book" but there is rather a Google contacts list. You don't HAVE to use it, of course, but it's pretty handy and if you do use it, it keeps tracks of your contacts and when you sign into Google it automatically downloads them to any phone your signed into.

    Yep, you need to be rooted to change the boot animation from the phone. As for by our second question, I think they are baked in to the phone but nothing a custom ROM won't fix.

    I figured root access was assumed, so I didn't bother mentioning it.

    I'm what the confusion is, but here are some pictures of the AT&T address book application process and account screens.

    Once rooted, you can get rid of whatever you want. M

    True, but the question is how?
    I disabled the AT&T Address book using the Startup Manager 4.7 app, but the first time I try to open the "Address Book" icon, the AT&T App launches instead.

    You can use Titanium Backup to freeze the app.

    I downloaded Titanium at your recommendation. It's a great program, thanks for the tip!
