    make it mine is availible in cydia but i dont think it works for the ipod text

    you have to make a custom logo for winterboard

    name it FSO_IPOD_CARRIER and Default_IPOD_CARRIER

    they go into your springboard.app folder

    ^MIM does work for the iPod text... Download it from Cydia and follow the instructions.
    Respect your elders.

    If you want, you can put whatever picture you want instead of the "iPod" text as long as the picture you put is in the good format.

    You need to create to PNG file ( "Default_CARRIER_IPOD.PNG" & "FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.PNG" ). The height of those pic has to be 20px. For the width, you can choose any resolution between 1px and 100px.

    Into those pics, you can put whatever you want. I used MSPAINT. The Default...PNG picture is the one that shows up when the status bar is grey. The FSO...PNG is when the status bar is black (when you are on springboard).

    -Once the two pictures are ready, SSH into you iPod to folder /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app
    -Rename the existing files:
    ->Default_CARRIER_IPOD.PNG to Default_CARRIER_IPOD(bck).PNG
    ->FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.PNG to FSO_CARRIER_IPOD(bck).PNG
    -Import into springboard.app the new pictures you made
    -Respring your iPod
    -Enjoy

    Default ok
    What is the resolution of your image? it must be (1px to 100px) X 20px
    What is the format of your picture? It must be PNG
    In the name of the image file, did you wrote it exactly like the original considering capital letters?

    If all of these are correct, me be you should chmod your image file to 755...
