In short a program for your Mac called CarrierEditor will change your carrier logo from the boring AT&T, Verizon or other carrier to a different logo. The full story can be found at JBN (Jailbreak Nation). The process itself does not require you to jailbreak your iPhone and if you don’t like the logo you can always revert back to the old one. Additionally, should the carrier ever update its ID the process will be reversed. I went with the Apple Logo from the free icons provided. Below is a video tutorial put together by the fine folks over at App Advice for Mac and from iDownload Blog. Enjoy.
For Mac OS X
I can't get it to work. I have followed the directions multiple times. The only thing that I can see is that the file name is 14.1 and my version is 14.0. Not sure if that would cause a problem. Any Advice?
@Bluandorange_in_SLC Which carrier are you on? If Sprint or a few others it may not work. Also the firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com file names have to be used for each carrier logo.
I used the bsu logos that you posted on the OBNUG site.
I used both logo files and I am on Verizon. I saw that a some people have had a problem getting it to work on the iphone 4s, could this be my issue?
One thing I have noticed is that with the 4s on verizon it is not 4G and the only verizon network is Verizon_LTE_US (actually I see 2 with the same name) could that be causing me problems?
i have done that multiple times, I tried texts and photos, both the boise state logo from the OBNUG site and random icons that you provided. I have also watched the video multiple times to make sure i am doing it right. if you have any other tips please let me know.
@Bluandorange_in_SLC did you reset the phone? Hold the top button and the home button down at the same time until the Apple logo appears and then disappears. Wait 10 seconds then hold the top button down and turn the phone back on. I had to do this when I first tried to get it to work. Sorry for the late response I was traveling to San Francisco.
