'DataChanger' Lets You Replace the 4G Indicator With 3G
Carriers like AT&T tout having massive 4G networks with nationwide 4G coverage, when in reality, it’s mostly 4G HSPA+ with very little 4G LTE mixed in. If you’re one of the many that still disagrees that HSPA+ should be considered part of the 4G network spectrum, then you can stop fooling yourself and replace your 4G indicator in your Status Bar with a 3G indicator.
The jailbreak tweak you’ll need to do this is called DataChanger
by iOS developer rms, and it is now available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for free. DataChanger will make it so whenever you connect to 4G HSPA+, a 3G indicator appears in your Status Bar. On the other hand, if you connect to 4G LTE, you will still see the LTE indicator, that way you will be content with knowing when you are connected to the truest 4G network there is.
Even though the Status Bar will say 3G, the tweak is not dropping your connection from 4G HSPA+ to 3G HSPA, so the tweak definitely doesn’t slow down your data speeds.
DataChanger doesn’t come with any options to configure, and it’s not exactly the world’s most useful tweak either. On the other hand, if that 4G indicator is just bugging you to no end, you can use this tweak to get rid of it.
