    Default 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.

    Having not got a non-JailBroken device to try this on I can't confirm, but I thought most non-JB devices we restricted from installing custom ipcc files?

    Or am I imagining things?

    Would this work on an iPod touch? Or does it depend on the files found in cellular devices for the custom carrier?

    The iPod touch does not have a carrier and therefore doesn't support carrier updates. This application does not work with the iPod touch, only cellular iPads and iPhones.

    So once I press 'restore iPhone'. It then loads for like 2seconds.

    Then should I restore the whole phone?!

    You should reboot/respring after the installation of the carrier bundle.

    Thanks. Doesn't work for me then.

    O2 UK bundles are in the file so I presume they would.

    Perhaps it's because I'm on crappy windows 8?

    The US Government has determined that jailbreaking is not illegal and so therefore NOT piracy!! The basis for this decision is that the nice people creating the jailbreaks are doing so by reverse engineering iOS for enhancement not for illegal gain. The fact that a small subset of people using jailbreaks to download cracked apps is unfortunate, but not the intention of jailbreaking.

    Danyl -

    It changes my carrier settings. I've gone from O2_UK 13.0 to O2_UK 13.1

    But no image changes.

    You used to be able to create custom ipcc files using Carrier Bundle Generator iPhone OS 3.0 - 3.1.2 (ipcc) but it stopped working some time ago (iOS 3.12?)
    It looks like AT&T no longer block custom ipcc files but other carriers, I believe, do (to prevent people adding tethering among other reason).

    Or so I believe. I would love to be proved wrong.

    You are right, they started signing the bundle, so you could not change any settings (eg. tethering), but you can still change the carrier logos.

    Also having trouble with iPhone 5 win7 x64 on version .003 I will try with .004 like suggested above and report back. BTW I tried the DarkKnight Icon in the ZeppelinLogos folder of the reccomeneded icon pack (loading both the etched and other logo like instructions said) and nothing. I then tried custom text that were 2 different colors so i could see what component they each changed and I didnt get anything. No errors though.

    EDIT: program version .004 works

    THANKS!

    It was 0.0.3 that wouldn't work for me. 4s the charm though!
