  • 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.

      Yes, this works...
      BUT you need to keep your png file under 20K in size. (Use Paint from Microsoft to resize the png file).
      If you don't do this, the file may clobber your Cellular Strength and (LTE or WiFi).
      This will leave you with a blank screen in the upper area where cellular strenth, LTE, and WiFi are normally listed

      Just a heads up for everybody.

      I'm using sprint iPhone 5, and I can't even get it to work at all. Tried for 30minutes and gave up.

      They should be on the desktop after you press "Create IPCC Carrier Bundle" button.

      The files are too big.
      Remember you can pull png files over from your iphone.
      Hook it up tethered with cable and look at computer.
      Click down until you see the iphone logo.
      Click on logo and keep clicking until you see the png files.
      Now copy one to your desktop.
      Now use Paint to resize it by 50% 2 or 3 times.
      Now use Carrier logo and point to the file you created.
      It will take a while for Carrier logo to create the new file (couple of minutes).
      Once done, use itunes like the instructions say.....
      Hope this helps everybody.

      I have this same problem, does anyone know if it is only for the iPhone 5? I install the modified bundle but it won't work, and the only option for Verizon is Verizon_LTE_US. I guess the app doesn't need to be updated, but does anyone have a link for the proper carrier bundle?

      And yes, everything else went as expected. I rebooted, I tried a few times, nothing is wrong that I can tell.

      Thank you, I'd love to use this app. It's funny being able to tweak your iPhone, even in the slightest, when not jailbroken.

      Yeah same, I tried it multiple times with choosing the LTE option, but nothing :/ it'd be cool though just as almost a "teaser" to being jailbroken again :/

      I love that you have cricket, I miss being with them and its nice to know that have a 5 year contract agreement with sprint so they can use LTE speeds from them and some 3G services. Sadly I don't think there is any bundle for cricket yet? I'm with sprint, and ill just wait for a official jailbreak than this tool that teases us.

      I think this is a question that a lot are trying to ask: What happens if you are using iPhone with an unsupported carrier, and no bundle is available to select ? in setting i only have Carrier 13.0 ? How do i use the app now ?

      Can somebody please help me? I tried to do this and everything works, but the custom letter carrier is so freakin tiny, so I tried to reverted it by applying the original .ipcc and its the same, heres a pic.
