    Okay, been searching for the past 4 hours though countless threads....I know I've seen a way to change the background and the Verizon logo on the lockscreen but dont remember where I saw it. Any help would be appreciated.

    The lockscreen background can be changed in a number of ways, the most common I use being selecting a pic from either Gallery or Photos and follow the "set as" menu, or long press the pic and make the selection there.

    The branding (logo) can be changed in the launcher menu, depending on what your launcher is, or it can be changed (edited) or removed with an app.

    thx for the tip Frisco, unfortunately the only option is to set it as the default image for both lockscreen and home wallpapers.....i'll keep searching

    Sorry, I thought that was what you wanted.. not sure what you're looking for, now.

    Perhaps the boot screen?

    I think he is looking for a way to change the verizon branding on the lock screen. I remember when I tried froyo its was branded all to hell with sprint branding which really annoyed the crap out of me.

    edit /data/eri.xml

    Cool, I had a Sprint brand on the Cyanogen Tazz ROM I liked so much, posted about it and found out there was a menu setting and it needed no app or hack, thus my mention of looking for a menu setting to the OP.
