After I installed a custom winterboard onto my unlocked/jailbroken i4 my sim card wasn\'t recognized so I had no phone service. When I uninstalled winterboard it recognized my local sim again. Any thoughts??

I use iphone 2G with 3.1.2. I don\'t have custom logo for the carrier, so I use MakeItMine and write some text. The default color of that text is white in Springboard, and black in Apps. Now I want to change that color in Springboard to black too. How can I do it? I use the Solid Status Bar in Winterboard, but it seems there is a bug. When enable Solid Status Bar in Winterboard, it\'s working fine until you open any app, then come back to springboard, the status bar is just disappear. Any suggestion to change the color of text carrier?!
