    can the verizon wireless banner on the startup screen be changed like you can on the droidx using liberty, since pulldown editor does not work with the fascinate wondering if theres another way.

    There is no way to edit vzw on the lockscreen....only hide it....Eri.xml is the file that needs to be edited but samsung did something screwy and it can't be edited....many of us have spent hours trying....sbrissen did edit it though so it can be hidden

    It is possible to edit it in the pulldown menu under the power controls...but this requires editing the service.jar with terminal/adb knowledge and smali/backsmali ....which the average user would probably not be able to do

    So basically you can't do it from your phone

    I have a Verizon Galaxy Tab which I would like to change the boot animations. Now as I understand it, there are two folders in which hold the animations. One for boot and the other for shutdown. Is that correct? The Verizon appears to use both animation for boot up and only one for shutdown. I have looked into using the Android SDK to push down the bootanimation.zip but the abd (or adb) files seems missing in the download. My question here is what can be used to create the animations, almost anything as long as it is converted to the android zip format??
