Default Delete AT&T OS for O2?

Please Login to Remove!

I downloaded the desktop software and the OS from the O2 web page, then erased the AT&T software then installed the O2 OS. Bingo.......the AT&T software is still on there. What gives????

When you talk about the at&t 'OS software', are you referring to the 'shop music', 'shop themes', 'stream music', 'telenav', etc? If so, those have nothing to do with your OS. I believe they are pushed onto your device with your service books from at&t.

Or are you talking about the splash screen when starting up your device with the globe and at&t logo? If so, that is also nothing to do with your OS... from what I hear, it is hard-coded to whatever wireless provider the device was manufactured for.

Sorry.

That doesn't mean you don't have the O2 OS.

You still have PTT because your device's Vendor ID is 102, and platform.alx loads PTT because of that.

Also, you will not not see any visible indicators from O2. Please go to Options > About and check your version number.

That is exactly right, if you see v4.2.2.67 you have the O2 OS.

That is by design. Flashing the device does not change the vendor ID and device branding. An AT&T device will stay an AT&T and therefore get the PTT client installed.

Unless you edit platform.alx to stop it from being loaded. That's what I do on my 8800.

Are you referring to the AT&T splash screen that displays when you start the device? There is nothing you can do to remove this. This is part of the device BIOS and there is no way to change it.

No, you cannot delete the file. It is required.
