Hmmmm - yes the Mobicel stock was added recently. You could copy the 'system' file from the Mobicel stock ROM folder and temporally replace the Wiko 'system' file with it and try flashing Wiko ROM pack again. If all goes well, then you should have the Mobicel Vivo logos again instead of Wiko Lenny. Yes the logos & startup animations are in the 'System' file.
