  • 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.

      Would be nice to have some answer form the developper. It does seem to work at all for some people with an unjailbroken Iphone 5. Mine is on IOS 6.0.2 with Fido 13.2 carrier setup. I've tried both methods (with logos and simple text) and it,s not working at all. I'm running Windows 8 64 bits. Thanks

      It's a little hard to debug this kind of issues, as it might be a problem with the "compiling" process, incompatibility with the computer, and it also depends on "plutil.exe" which sometimes hangs on windows. You need to understand the of creating an ipcc file to be able to debug and see what went wrong.

      One thing that most of the times helps to debug, is to check if the carrier version changed in your device, if so - the problem might be the replacement logo - incorrect size, resolution and so on.

      If the carrier version didn't change it's a lot more complicated to debug - as it can be not only CCL's fault but also the user's.

      Finally! This version really works for me! I don't know what could you do that will fix the process on iTunes (my only problem was there) but whatever it is, you did it! Thanks a lot! You rock!

      So I was trying to find that folder and it is not there and my carrier is not listed what should I do?

      After much trial and error and doing research and viewing the contents of the bundles (payload folder), i found out why it DOESN'T work on my CRICKET iPhone 5. This goes to everyone that has problems working for their carrier. If your carrier doesn't use a LOGO or .png file for the Carrier and only uses TEXT, like "CRICKET"..this won't work on your iPhone. This ONLY works if your carrier uses a .png file for the Carrier logo. If it doesn't, this won't work. Hopefully there is a workaround soon.

      I'm quite sure you are wrong, my iPhone 5 is using the carrier "HOT Mobile" and it doesn't use a .png file, it uses a text file. but it worked just fine for me

      I just checked your carrier for "HOT Mobile" and it's working for you because the carrier bundle uses a .png for the HOT Mobile logo. It LOOKS like text on your iPhone but it IS A .PNG file..For carrier bundles that don't use .png files, it's currently not working.

      You're right, DanyL931 (the creator of this tool) have confirmed this on his twitter, sorry for the confusion.

      That's odd, but when I open the maps app on my iPhone 5 (iOS 6.0.2) my carrier switches back to the original, but when closing the app the carrier gets back to the custom one

      arggggggg. that,s too sad and come very late. I've tried all version and all methods since version 003. Glad to found out that it wasn't my computer fault or iphone. My carrier use TEXT and not a logo. Hope there will be a workaround soon.

      Thanks to the developper anyway. Keep on the good work.
