Ever since I unlocked my Nexus 6p to root the device, I started getting the boot-loader unlocked sign with a big flashing yellow icon telling me to go to some link to reset my device. It is quite annoying when this happens. Is there a way to remove this icon without re-locking the device?

Android: 7.1.1 Nougat (rooted w/ TWRP)

Bootloader Issue

    There is no way to remove this warning. The only way is locking the bootloader.

    The warning is a part of boot verify process - see Fig 1.This Reddit explains that it is a hardware fuse, which cannot be undone by locking the bootloader. So i guess there is no way

Someone found a way to get rid of this screen on a Nexus 5X by replacing the imgdata bitmap files. Not sure if there is a one for 6P.
