    Here, I changed my instructions for Windows.

    If you don't have AT&T replace AT&T with your carrier.
    1. Make the new images in Photoshop (although I used Pixelmator).
    2. Export the images to PNGs.
    3. Open the image in with an image viewer, and make sure the default opening Program is not the program you used to make the file with. (Important)
    4. The names have to be exact, even capitalization, they are Default_CARRIER_ATT.png and FSO_CARRIER_ATT.png
    5. The default image is when the backround will be white, and the FSO is when the backround will be black.
    6. Navigate to /System/Library/Carrier_Bundles/ATT_US/ and backup the original files.
    7. Replace Default_CARRIER_ATT.png and FSO_CARRIER_ATT.png in ATT_US with the ones you made.
    8. If everything was done right, when you restart your iPhone, you should have a custom logo.

    Result:
    "Now everyone calm the hell down and let me think about how to clean up your mess, while you build me a monument dedicated to how awesome I am."

    then do it in the tmobile folder

  6. #5
    wich tmobile folder is the uk one ?

    seems to me there is no tmobile UK on the iPhone.

    try this: go to /private/var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundle.bundle

    this shold redirect you to your current carrier - see where that takes you.
    If it takes you to
    /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/Unknown.bundle
    then you've got a problem, because that means you have to create tmobile UK by yourself which could get pretty complicated (if somehow possible)

    when i go to carrier bundles lots of carriers are there and then there is one folder that saos unkown bundle

  9. #8
    it doesn't matter what folders are THERE, it matters what folder you have to use ;-)
    like I said: go to /private/var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundle.bundle/
    and see which folder you get redirected to - that is your carrierfolder

    Yes, MIM is the easy way to do it. Just install MIM from cydia, run the app, fill in your desired name. That's it!

    If your Carrier is not on the list, you must dreat a new .bundle file. I copied one of the others to my desktop, edited the carrier.plist file and put the graphics files in there. You need to know your providers number ie 25099 for Russian Beeline. Edit the plist to stop the silly call forwarding pop up, put in your carriers stock symbol, it's webpage etc. then copy back to the folder. After that you need to make a symlink with your carriers number that points to the bundle you just made. And Voila!

    Not a big issue to correct. The symlinks (all the number files) in the Carrier Bundles directory represent the MNC of the carrier. As with T-Mobile US, (MNC 310260) there isn't a symlink for T-Mobile UK. Simple process to make it. For T-Mobile USA, one would ssh into the phone, and type:

    Code:
    cd /System/Library/"Carrier Bundles"/ 
    
    ln -s /System/Library/"Carrier Bundles"/TMobile.bundle 310260
    To change to T-Mobile UK, replace those numbers with the MNC for T-Mobile UK. That could be one of three, 23430, 23431, or 23432, so it may be wise to create three symlinks.

    Type into terminal, putty, of the ssh client of your choice:

    Code:
    ln -s /System/Library/"Carrier Bundles"/TMobile.bundle 23430
    ln -s /System/Library/"Carrier Bundles"/TMobile.bundle 23431
    ln -s /System/Library/"Carrier Bundles"/TMobile.bundle 23432
    I'd probably also recommend to make sure you have a TMobile.bundle. If not, you can surely substitute using TMobile_Germany.bundle or whichever.

    Let me know if this works for you.

    BTW, first post! How are you fine people doing?

    Or use this online tool to create your own carrier bundle for firmware 2.2 (documentation is here).

    Hey just use MIM and also use enable emoji from cydia. That way u can have text and graphics. Thanks

    The MakeItMine + Emoji solution allows you to have a carrier logo made up of Japanese "emoji" emoticons... If you're satisfied with that, go for it. Otherwise, use a custom firmware bundle. It really isn't that difficult, and it also allows you to optimize other settings -- e.g. turn off the "Call Forwarding On" messages that appear when you make a call, etc.

    Default Mobistar (Belgium) Carrier Logos
    Searched everywhere, couldn't find. Made my own. Here they are. Mobistar. Put them in your Mobistar carrier bundle, mine was at /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/Mobistar_be.bundle

    Enjoy!

    Hi every1,

    I'm having problem applying my new High Res carrier logo for T-Mobile UK and I have no joy. Does any1 know how to do this for T-Mobile UK on iPhone 4 iOS 4.0.1?

    The Carrier bundle.bundle redirects me to /var/mobile/library/Carrier Bundles/23430\TMobile_uk.bundle when I replace the PNG files in there nothing happens. Anyways, on my iPhone I have just "T-Mobile" and those PNG files are "T-Mobile UK" so probably that's why replacing PNG files doesn't do anything...

    Again, this is T-Mobile UK - not US - on iOS 4.0.1 (iPhone 4)

    thanks for any advices

    Make sure you're replacing the high-res ones with the @2x extension - they are for the retina display... Good luck!
