    Default Jailbroken 3G on 3.1fw missing carrier logo help
    Just gone to3.1 and jailbroke my 3G using pwnage 3.1
    Everything works, restored from back up and still all good.
    The only small issue is the missing carrier logo, this has no impact on using the phone, just
    more of an annoyance.

    Is there any way I can get a carrier logo back?
    Or a file mod I can do?

    it seems to be a general problem and will probably be fixed on the next pwnagetool update.
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    Default Solution:
    PLEASE BE CAREFUL. I am not responsible for any dmage to your phone.
    I assure you this works if done properly.

    I am a windows user:

    For this process I used pledit to edit the plist file.
    I used iphone explorer to locate the plist file we need to edit and move it to the PC.

    1. Open Iphone Explorer
    2) Browse to /private/var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles/ATT_US.bundle
    3) Move the the file carrier.plst to your pc. Make note where you post it. Make a back up of it just to be safe.
    4) Open pledit and open the file carrier.plst.
    5) Find the portion of the file that reads:
    Code:

    <array>
    <dict>
    <key>AllowPrefixMatching</key>
    <false/>
    <key>CarrierName</key>
    <string>at&amp;t</string>
    <key>DefaultImage</key>
    <string>Default_CARRIER_ATT.png</string>
    <key>FullScreenOpaqueImage</key>
    <string>FSO_CARRIER_ATT.png</string>
    </dict>

    6) Immediately below this text, paste the following:
    Code:

    <dict>
    <key>AllowPrefixMatching</key>
    <false/>
    <key>CarrierName</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>DefaultImage</key>
    <string>Default_CARRIER_ATT.png</string>
    <key>FullScreenOpaqueImage</key>
    <string>FSO_CARRIER_ATT.png</string>
    </dict>


    7) Copy the file back to Move the file back to /private/var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles/ATT_US.bundle


    Notes:
    1) The text you pasted in step 6 is the same you located in step 5, but with an empty string for CarrierName. I simply copy-pasted the text and deleted "at&amp;t")
    2) This should works fine with AT&T Carrier Logo from Cydia.
    3) This method should work fine for other carriers. Just modify to reflect your carrier's bundle and logo files.
    4) If you have used a hack like mike it mine remove the text and reboot the phone.

    This does indeed work for the carrier logo in Cydia, but under Settings>General>About it still says "Not Available" for network.

    Yea mine does not have it in settings.

    Blame it on apple. Iam just happy the dev team was able to make a j/b for 3.1 cause for me 3.0 made my phone run like crap. And the dev team do it for free. So to me not having AT&T in settings realy dosent bother me cause I know what sim I use in my phone

    My Network also reads "Not Available", but everything works. From what I've read, I believe this issue is purely aesthetic and will most likely be addressed in the near future.

    Makeitmine in Cydia does work, just no spiffy Rogers carrier logo, just the letters or whaterver you want it to say. EG: JB iPhone 3GS, F*** Apple, whatever you want.
