My final question on this phone and on Android 2.3.3 is more for understanding than anything else.... The previous owner of my phone purchased it from Koodo, so when the system boots I see the Koodo animation. I dont fully understand Rooting, but via rooting would it be possible to remove the Koodo animation from the boot loader and would it be difficult or impossible to make changes to the bootloader so as to eliminate or replace this animation ..... I would be fascinated to hear your expert opinion and recommendations. Cheers and thanks for all ideas and links you might be able to provide.
