unlocked oem boot message warning
« on: November 26, 2022, 07:17:25 am »
Hi.
How to get rid of the "Your device has been unlocked and can't be trusted" boot message? And also I have to wait 5 seconds. Many thanks.

I don't have an Astro, so I can't answer, sorry.

But, cam, in general, are you liking your Astro?

You don't get rid of the 5 sec pause, but you can change the message.

Please don't do this. After I did , the smartphone would not turn on anymore. It didn't even go into fastboot mode. I thought : Now it's gone. Luckily the mtkclient that was installed on my linux recognized the smartphone and I restored the old file

I think I heard for a previous device that the rooted boot images provided by Planet Computers don't cause the warning. I worked out the root process myself, and I'm not that bothered by the warning and boot delay, so never bothered trying them. Or are you saying the message is present right out of the box, before you've even rooted / unlocked the bootloader? (I don't have my Astro yet)

Edit: Nevermind that last question! - answered by the thread title and warning message itself 😅

This happened  after the device was unlocked (by me ).

Never edit lk with a hex editor. The bootloaders on GitHub have mostly all been DMCA'd by Mediatek, and the bootloader for Astro is on a private repo. No plans to release yet.

There is one I was working on, but I'm not now as I want some clarity from PC about the DMCA.

You can avoid the unlock message by using an officially signed image, and having the bootloader locked. However, this makes rooting impossible.

The way we avoided this in Gemini and Cosmo was using the bootloader as signed, with 'untrusted' boot slots - BOOT_3/BOOT_4/BOOT_2/RECOVERY_BOOT_2. This has not been implemented for Astro yet, so I'm afraid you're stuck with the delay for now.
