Sure you can get an iPhone that says AT&T or even Verizon now, but curious how to make the carrier name say anything you want? Want to put your own name, even an icon? If you're Jailbroken and not afraid of a little hacking, we'll show you how after the break!
While I am only showing this method for AT&T users, it can be done for non-AT&T users as well by changing the bundle and icon names in the tutorial accordingly which you can find in /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/)
Custom logos will not replace the actual system image files and can be turned on and off through Winterboard. Unlike apps like "Make it mine" which replaces system files, this customization is easily restored by unchecking the theme in Winterboard or by restoring your iPhone. This method does not make any permanent changes to your iPhone.
You can create two different logos for the different backgrounds, but I will be creating just one for this tutorial. Also a similar method can be used for skinning the M-cell logo as well.
p style="padding-left: 20px;">*These are case sensitive so make sure the files are named exactly as above.
You can use any picture or text as long as it is the right size. If using text make sure that your background is transparent and that your file is a png not a jpg.
I hope you found this tutorial helpful and remember to have fun!
