  • 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.

      Works perfect. Here is what I made for the wife and I.







      P.S. So if we can replace simple files and a couple images like this, then we should be able to change the path and change the battery as well as signal bars right?

      Can anyone point me to where I can find the ipcc for Tmobile US carrier 13.0 format iPhone 5 since this carrier is not supported in the program? Thanks!

      For those who can't find their carrier in CCL list, you may find the original ipcc over here:
      http://ax.phobos.apple.com.edgesuite...tCheck/version

      extract the /payload/carriername.bundle and select it in CCL.

      And for those who failed to restore back to the original.ipcc, download and apply the ipcc from the link above.

      I'll update CCL sometime today with:
      1. Carrier bundles I dumped from my iPhone 5.
      2. Support for .ipcc as input (currently supports only .bundle) so you could download the original ipcc from the link above and provide it directly without extracting the .bundle.

      Unfortunately it can't be done with this method.
      We all have to wait for a jailbreak..

      Every time I use the logo from text option, half the text is missing, it sits too low on the status screen, if I choose a small font the text is too small to read, anyone suggest a font to use that would fix this, or if the developer could.

      "Invalid carrier bundle version."

      My carrier's in the list, and I've put the correct carrier version (13.1) and it's giving me the error above.

      Any idea?

      Before I used the application my carrier was displayed as TESCO. I played around with the application for a while then decided to install the original .ipcc file. The Carrier Current Version has gone back to 13.0 but I now have the O2-UK logo instead of the TESCO logo?

      Any way to fix this?

      Thank you for the update! I was very excited to see that you added the bundle for Cricket but when I tried it, it didn't work. I tried both my wife's and my iphone 5 and neither of them worked. When I go to the General, About tab and check for the version number it does update it. For example, i was originally at Cricket 13.0, when I loaded the created bundle..the version changed to Cricket 13.1 but the carrier text/logo didn't change. Any tips or ideas on what I should do? Thanks

      Tried that aswell but unfortunately no luck either.
      I've made a carrier logo a month ago by manually creating the
      carrier files but the program itself somehow fails to do it.

      Just so you can try it aswell:
      -Tmobile_hu
      -Carrier version: 13.1
      -iPhone 5

      No offense but why would i want to update to the newest firmware? Im waiting for a jailbreak. I love the fact that this is possible but if you update as iTunes wants you to when you apply this, you will be way behind the jb. Im already waiting for a jb for 6.0.1...don't want to update to have to wait longer. Also, would be cool if Cydia could use a similar style to manipulate the iPhone. If this app does it on the newest firmware..why is it taking so long for a jb?? I want some crackers with my wine hahaha!
