These are instructions on how to change your iPhone or iPad's carrier logo without jailbreaking using CarrierEditor for Mac.

*Important: This will only work for carriers that use an image as their logo (ie. AT&T). It will not work for others that use text as their logo (ie. Sprint).

Step Nine
Drag in your new carrier logo images. There is one for when the status bar is black and another for when the status bar is light gray. The later should have an etched effect.

The logos should be max size of 60x20 or 120x40 for Retina Displays. They must be in the PNG format with a transparent background. ie. carrierlogo.png or carrierlogo@2x.png for Retina devices.

If you don't have your own logos you can find some pre-made ones in the DMG we previously mounted, under the ZeppelinLogos folder.

I actually need this crap to work on my wife's phone since she works for T-Mobile and they won't allow her to have her phone on the sales floor cause it says Verizon on it, but it's not working!!! ... anyway, she has an iPhone 4S, v5.1.1 - does anyone know if this only works on v6.x?? she refuses to upgrade to v6.x

This only works for Verizon on the iPhone 5 due to the 5 using a sim card to reach the network (LTE). 3G only phones on a CDMA network (Verizon and Sprint) won't work for this due to the fact that the word "Verizon" is text not an image.

DacksMac
DacksMac - December 31, 2012 at 9:36pm
I think it gets created whenever you make your custom one. Another words once you export your new icon there is also automatically exported the original In the same file location
harivamc
harivamc - December 31, 2012 at 11:45pm
its created automatically along with the updated carrier info thing. check your desktop or where the updated file was saved.

You should learn how to speak properly and then re-comment.
