    Should be same as ios4, replace the appropriate images and rename them, adding @2x before the .png file extension

    The new SBSettings (with ios5 support) lets you change the carrier name

    I agree, it should, but it doesn't. I have various carrier logos I made myself which worked fine on ios4. Copied the same files over, nothing to overwrite and didn't work.

    For my carrier all the image files are now post fixed with _1only_, I replaced these files to no avail.

    Same problem here, only ATT has the old-style carrier logo names Waiting for the solution!

    Well, you have to add the 3 files with you personal carrier logo: remember that for iPhone 4 they have to finish with @2x, even if the 3 files in the folder don't have it (they probably are just sor SD, not HD). Then respring.
    In your example, inside the folder you'll have 3 plist files and
    Default_CARRIER_T-Mobile HU_1only_.png
    FSO_CARRIER_T-Mobile HU_1only_.png
    TS_CARRIER_T-Mobile HU_1only_.png
    Now copy inside the folder your personal logos named
    Default_CARRIER_T-Mobile [email protected]
    FSO_CARRIER_T-Mobile [email protected]
    TS_CARRIER_T-Mobile [email protected]

    My error was naming the files with the same name of the one in the folder, without the @2x.
    (Strange: if you'll look at the same files after the respring, even stock files now have your personal png)

    Okay, Let's get this straight...
    The FSO_CARRIER file represents the springboard's logo which is by default the (WHITE TEXT "name of the carrier")
    The Default_CARRIER file represents the in-app logo which is by default (BLUE TEXT "name of the carrier")

    Now, What is the TS_CARRIER Represents ???
    screenshot if it's possible

    And by the way, i have no iOS 4 !!
    some guys are sayin' i've to take the original files from iOS 4 and then replace'em with iOS 5 bla bla bla !!

    Okay, i figure it out ...
    i did everything perfectly, and i grabbed that TS and copied and just rename it as the TS_CARRIER_"OPERATOR"[email protected] and then copied it again inside the directory with the original one TS_CARRIER_"OPERATOR"_1only_.png

    What happened is i've all the carrier logos, but when i open the notification center, there's nothing but the original carrier name (WITHOUT LOGO, JUST THE NAME)

    so TS represent the Notification center logo

    I SSH'd into the folder and changed the carrier logo with the ones I had saved on my computer (a Cingular logo). So what I did was to change the ATT logo (2x) with a cingular one.

    I changed the ones in user/library/Carrier Bundle.bundle

    Hiii Joda,

    I am a lucky to change my operator logo, but if i look at lockscreen condition on stanby & charging,, the background color is difference, at lockscreen with no charging the color dark grey & with charging condition the color dark black. with 2 condition the system use only 1 file file "FSOxxxx.png".
    Need your advice to fix it.

    okay teguhwdd, if i were u, i would probably change the carrier logo FILES themselves and find another.
    Cuz you "suppose" didn't change the original TS_CARRIER,DEFAULT & TS_"OPERATOR"_1only_.png files and it's almost a problem with your carriers logo files itself, the new files you put inside the destination
    So:
    Find another carrier logos and make sure they are png's and make sure they are around 5KB + make sure you name them as following:
    TS_CARRIER_"OPERATOR"[email protected]
    FSO_CARRIER_"OPERATOR"[email protected]
    Default_CARRIER_"OPERATOR"[email protected] ===> Only the "D" is CAP
    and make sure that you still have the original iOS files TS, Default and FSO without @2x at the end of the file name

    Best Regards ... and sorry for being late =)
