    Unless you have rooted the phone, you won't be able to install anything other than an offical T-Mobile ROM, which will have the boot screen you mention.

    In my opinion, rooting isn't worth the hassle if all you want to do is change the boot screen.

    Thanks for that, we now have three Hero's in the house as my son and wife also have them, I gave my son the g2 and i got the unbranded one. Now I am looking forward to the 2.1 firmware update, although think the wife and son will be a bit jealous because think they will have to wait a little while longer for the update....Muhahaha:p
