    Default Carrier Logo Change in 1.1.2 - Possible reason....

    has anyone been able to change their carrier logo in 1.1.2?

    i have backed up all the default_carrer and FSO_carrier images, then deleted them from the iphone, and STILL my carrier logo displays the actual carrier name. in my case it says "SpeakOut" where as, i have changed it to an image i am trying to use.

    I have tried using MIM by erica, but it crashes on 1.1.2 (alteast on my iphone)



    ***EDIT***

    i am no genuis or have any knowledge of the filesystem, but i think this may be the reason why i am not able to change my carrier logo on 1.1.2

    as stated above, i have deleted all the carrier references from the
    /system/library/coreservices/springboard.app/

    yet, my carrier image still displays in text "SpeakOut"

    what i think is happening on 1.1.2 is that since apple is providing unlocked phones that the iphone reads the simcard for any provider that is not listed on the iphone and writes out that carrier name.

    for example - people are able to change their O2, ATT and T-Mobile carrier images because the iphone reads their sim and then accesses that file to display their carrier.

    However, people with different carriers, the iphone does not have a icon file to reference, and it writes out the carrier name in text.

    therefore when i deleted all of my default_carrier and FSO_carrier files, my "SpeakOut" was still displayed.

    maybe someone with filesystem and OS knowledge can shed some light one my hypothesis.

    ^^^ that's what i stated.

    because there are references to some carriers - tmobile being one of them, you can change the image.

    however, for customers in canada that use Rogers, they only get "Rogers" as their carrier logo.

    it was explained to me as this, on another forum:

    You're essentially correct. The built-in logos are in fact there because they are the only wireless companies Apple actually supports (or intends to support). There's a GSM database which all wireless carriers must to build into their phones (whether they are locked or not) which will display the text of the carrier they are connecting to, while roaming.

    I for one, without modification, get "Rogers Wireless" scrolling back and forth, quite annoying. If MiM is crashing on your iPhone, I would suggest getting the Springboard 112 patch (do a thread search) which will always show the AT&T Logo no matter which carrier you're with. This enables you to make make new logos simply by replacing the original AT&T logo that's built in.

    you need to have a custom springboard in order to change your logo. Just putting in the graphic files alone is not enough. Do a search for a thread called something like Use any custom carrier. In the first post you will find a link to the custom springboard patch you need. Simply replace your current one with the one in the post and you will be fine.

    No problem. I'm running it fine, just ensure you set permissions to 755. The first time I didn't do that and ended up with endless reboot and had to restore the phone.
