Changing the outside display logo on a Razr V3XX

Electronics My RAZR V3xx has two screens, a small one on the "outside" and a larger one inside. During normal phone usage, the outside screen shows the Cingular logo. (Or the Motorola Logo if you have a non-branded phone.)

I decided to replace the Cingular logo with one of my own, so I used P2kCommander-v4.9.9 to replace the cl.gif file in a/mobile/ with my own. (I'm currently using the picture of electronics, which makes the outer screen look like a window into the phone, but I've included a few others you might want to use instead.) Remember to back up your original cl.gif if you ever want to go back!

Other hacks for the v3xx are here and here and my review is here.

Some originals in case you want to change back, or just change your provider:

  1. This worked great.
    It there a way to get rid of some of the java apps that Cungular put on my v3xx? The delete option is not there and i would like to get some of the demos off.

  2. You need to connect to the phone using P2kCommander, then look at the phone's filesystem. Look in the /a/mobile directory for the cl.gif file. Copy one of the above files (or one you create that is the same size) to the phone to overwrite the standard cl.gif file. Reboot your phone.

    You may also need to install the correct USB drivers for your phone before p2kcommander will see it. Getting the drivers requires a Motorola developer account (free registration required), get your account here:

    Once you are logged in, you can download the drivers here:

  3. Note that the file that you put into a/mobile MUST be name cl.gif Also – a couple of good sites for cell phone modding info specific to Motorola phones are motomodders.net and modmymoto.com.
