On startup Sony Xperia X will show the above warning about device being unlocked. Is there any way to hide this announcement or is it possible to remove it in the future sw upgrades?

Agree on this. It's really annoying.

I think I read that this logo is in Bios and therefore cannot be changed by the system.

Did anyone try to lock again the bootloader see if this nag disappear? I therefore thiink pepperjohnny is right :/

If you re-lock the bootloader without a Sony stock firmware, your phone won't boot. So no, you can't AFAIK hide the "your device has been unlocked" boot warning

I think there shoule be a way to modify warning image from bootloader. Agreed this image is annoying.

And funnily it says "your phone can't be trusted. With Android removed my phone can finally be trusted. It's the other way.

answered 2017-10-12 20:16:24 +0300 Says its just an image inside the ramdisk located in: \ramdisk\res\images\warning

But i failed to access and replace it with a nice sailfish logo.

Thanks for the answer!

So it might be replaceable if it is just an image. Sailfish logo would be very nice instead of that warning.

Suggestion for new splash screen:

"Your device is running Sailfish OS so it can be trusted"

excuse me, but how to access to \ramdisk\res\images\warning?

I agree that this is a bit annoying. Even though it is not a crucial bug / feature, I hope Jolla can figure something out with Sony. Ideally a way to re-lock the bootloader (aka "SFOS as legit image") or at least a way to hide / replace that boot screen (which by the way also delays the boot process by 5 seconds).

yes, it's annoying and the boot is delayed by 5 seconds, but it is faster than android! LOL

Yup, I second that, it would be great if Sony accepted to sign the Sailfish X kernel with their official key.

Or do it the way that it got solved for UEFI's SecureBoot on Windows PC : Microsoft signed a shim with their official keys that passes the secureboot, and that shim in turn loads the linux boot loader (e.g.: Grub) or linux kernel.

agreed, Sony said it officialy support Jolla. It shall provide ways to remove this msg. can something be done to push them in that way ?
