    Default [1.1.3] Change carrier text to image so it can be customized
    I've searched all over the net looking for a method to customize my 1.1.3 iPhone carrier logo but nothing seems to work since my phone shows the carrier name as text instead of an image in the first place.

    There are some methods involving a patched Springboard but they only work for 1.1.1 and 1.1.2... any ideas?

    Here is how to change the custom carrier images, if not using ATT
    You can replace carrier image's in the following directory in 1.1.3 (My carrier is Vodafone)
    /System/Library/CarrierBundles/ I selected the folder unknown.bundles, in that folder it had only two png's which were not alias's, Default Carrier_VODAFONE, FSO_CARRIER_VODAFONE. I replaced these with mine! It worked perfectly. If you have Make it mine or similar apps active, deactivate them.

    That only works if your carrier is inside the unknown.bundles folder. If not, you need to manually edit the carrier.plist located in that same directory and add the corresponding values under "StatusBarImages". In my case, I added:

    <dict>
    <key>AllowPrefixMatching</key>
    <true/>
    <key>CarrierName</key>
    <string>entel</string>
    <key>DefaultImage</key>
    <string>Default_CARRIER_ENTEL.png</string>
    <key>FullScreenOpaqueImage</key>
    <string>FSO_CARRIER_ENTEL.png</string>
    </dict>

    After that, I copied the images Default_CARRIER_ENTEL.png and FSO_CARRIER_ENTEL.png to the folder, rebooted and voilá!!!

    I am on vodafone UK and I cannot find my carrier image anywhere... There isn't even a Default_Carrier_VODAFONE or an FSO_Carrier_VODAFONE.

    Can anybody help?

    hey i'm a little confused on how to do this..
    what i did was copied the plist file to my computer..
    then opened it in text edit and inserted
    <dict>
    <key>AllowPrefixMatching</key>
    <true/>
    <key>CarrierName</key>
    <string>entel</string>
    <key>DefaultImage</key>
    <string>Default_CARRIER_OPTUS.png</string>
    <key>FullScreenOpaqueImage</key>
    <string>FSO_CARRIER_OPTUS.png</string>
    </dict>
    into the file..

    but i'm pretty sure i did that wrong.. when it opened it looked nothing like this.. with different characters and what not.
    i opened it in text edit because it opened in omni outliner by default..

    help?

    Text edit wont work, try Worpad. If its still unreadable (ie-"different characters") you'll have to convert it to XML. Easier than it sounds just go to http://140.124.181.188/~khchung/cgi-bin/plutil.cgi find your plist file and click 'convert'

    Hope it helps, feel free click 'thanks' if it does
