    Default Changing Carrier Text to an Image... HELP PLS
    Hi there,
    i have extensively searched this all over the internet and cannot find any solution that seems to work.
    My iPhone currently displays text for the carrier. However i would like to be able to use customize in order to set my carrier image.
    It possible to change the text format to an image address? if so how?

    PS: MakeItMine works, it allows me to change the text for my carrier but i cannot add an image through this program.

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/FSO_CARRIER_ATT.png
    is what my iPhone uses... when I use customize , it changes the file.
    when I revert, it changes it back.

    NO MakeItMine. I removed the SBFakeCarrier from the plist.
    cd /private/var/root/Library/Preferences/
    plutil -r SBFakeCarrier com.apple.springboard.plist

    PS
    Library/Preferences/com.apple.carrier.plist -> /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support/ATT_US.plist
    (not sure how that maps to FSO_CARRIER_ATT.png , though)

    PPS
    it's not 'fake' anything. it's real!

    I looked @ com.apple.springboard.plist in private/var/root/Library/Preferences
    for SBFakeCarrier
    it does not exist.

    any other ideas?

    i did that however it caused me to have to restore cause the phone kept freezing at the apple icon when rebooting...

    however i am using afp to transfer the file and maybe i need to set permissions for the patch?
