    Default looking for gmail / googlemail trigger

    Hallo all,

    there is a problem with the name "gmail" on all iphones distributed in germany, even when they are fully unlocked. in germany you are not allowed to sell them because of the german "g-mail brand" owner.

    apple already changed all german iphone models and when you look in "system/library/preferencebundles/accountsettings/mobilemailsettings.bundle" there are already two different png's and in the "preference.string" you find "<key>GMAIL</key>" and "<key>GOOGLE_MAIL</key>".

    The thing is that if you put a regular ipsw on a german phone (model MB497DN/A), for example, it automatically displays "googlemail" instead of "gmail" in all gmail-related functions. If you use an other model, i.e. MB704LL/A, it will display "gmail", not "googlemail".

    So there must be a trigger that detects the iphone model and changes the "gmail" to "googlemail" on german iphones!? i had a deep look into the ipsw but only found the "preference strings" etc but not the "general switch".

    do you know how to trick the ipsw so it thinks its a german model and uses googlemail instead of gmail?

    thanks in advance! scribty

    I also need help with this problem!

    May there be a possibility to trick the iPhone Software so that the OS thinks it is installed on a german iPhone and will automatically show "googlemail"?

    Could it be possible the tricker gmail/googlemail depends on the installed sim card during the first run time (activate and registering) ??
