  • How to Change the Carrier Logo On Your iPhone - No Jailbreak Required! (Windows)


    Just a few days ago, ModMyi showed you how to change your carrier logo on your iPhone or cellular-enabled iPad with CarrierEditor. The best part was, the application used didn't require a jailbreak (but it still worked with jailbroken devices), and it even worked on Apple's newest iPhone – the iPhone 5.

    Until today, the application was Mac OS X-only, however iOS developer Dany Lisiansky has kindly built a Windows version of the application so that Windows users can also easily change their carrier logos without the need to deal with command lines.

    To get started, you will need the following items:
    • CustomCarrierLogo application for Windows (version 0.0.6)
    • A cellular iOS device – iPad or iPhone – jailbroken or not jailbroken



    Step 1: Open the application you downloaded. You will see the interface below. Click on the Let's Get Started button:



    Step 2: The application will ask you for your current carrier version. Head over to Settings > General > About on your iOS device to find the carrier version of your device. Enter the number that you see into the application under Current Carrier Version and then select the type of your device (iPad or iPhone) and your Carrier type:

    Step 3: Now click on the Browse buttons to the right of the black logo and etched logo labels to select the logos you want to use. You can use any logos you may have from Cydia, or that you've downloaded from the Internet, or from this handy little logo pack (link). After everything is in order, click on the Create IPCC Carrier Bundle button to build your carrier update:



    Step 4: The application will alert you that your IPCC file is complete:



    Step 5: With your iOS device plugged into your Windows machine, launch iTunes, then hold down the Shift key and click on the Restore iPhone button. Select the .ipcc file that you just made and then click on the Open button to apply the carrier update to your iPhone or iPad.

    Step 6: When iTunes finishes loading the carrier update, reboot your iOS device and enjoy the custom carrier logo that you picked:



    Unlike CarrierEditor, CustomCarrierLogo also comes with a text option that will let you create a text logo with the text you input into the application. It will create an image out of the text you input so you can apply it as a carrier logo. You can adjust the text's color and font.

    Performing this action does not restore your iOS device, even though you use the restore feature in iTunes to apply the carrier settings. The application is provided as is with no warranty implied, just like jailbreaking your device: Use the tool at your own risk! It is possible for Apple to patch this, so enjoy it while it lasts!

    Note: CustomCarrierLogo will place the original .ipcc file for your device’s carrier on your desktop along with the new one you create that contains the new logo. If you ever want to revert the changes so that your iOS device shows the carrier name instead of a logo, just follow Step 5 and Step 6 again, only this time pointing iTunes to the original .ipcc file instead of the new one.

      I was using iTunes 10 and gave me one option, so then I updated to 11 and still the same with one option.

      Did you received message like "could not find iTunes.exe...."? if so, go to "Advanced" and choose the file iTunes.exe (not a shortcut, the real one).

      Other way to check if it should work is to quit iTunes, open CCL and than click on "Let's get started" - if iTunes will open, than it should allow you to choose ipcc files too.

      Program required me to change the Windows decimal symbol from , to . in the control panel before it would accept my carrier version. After that, worked fine! Didn't even have to restart. Thank you very much!

      Does this support Sprints iPhone 5?

      Yeah, Windows 7 with the latest version of iTunes. Clicking either .ispw or .ipcc and then "Open" yields what I assume to be an empty folder. No files appear and the message says "No items match you search"

      Is this impossible to work on Sprint or is it just nobody cares about Sprint?

      So i managed to change my carrier logo but I couldn't restore it back to the default. I then tried creating another to get a new original .pcc and still couldn't restore from that one. Tried rebooting and all.

      I have a 4S on Verizon, could not change it. The Verizon options says LTE so I presume it's for the 5 only :/

      Just for anybody that is testing out the logos, you don't have to reset the phone every time. If you just put it into airplane mode, and back off the carrier logo will update.
