Ok so I'm looking to change (or simply remove) the carrier/operator name on the lock screen but can't seem to make it happen.

I've tried using the following Xposed modules:
  • XBlast Tools for above Android 4.0.3+
  • GravityBox [KK]
  • XSense
Other methods tried so far:
  • Edited different files found in /carrier and changed any the have "Virgin Mobile" to something different
  • I've messed with both QPST and CDMA Workshop
  • I've changed the operator lines in build.prop (which displays "Chameleon" not Virgin Mobile)
  • Already looked at the eri.xml file in framework-res.apk
  • Removing the LTE SIM card (to see if it was forcing the phone to display Virgin Mobile).
  • Editing /system/etc/spn-conf.xml to override 311490 with custom text. [EDIT]
So if anyone knows how to do this, or has some suggestions on achieving this, I would greatly appreciate the help.

Attempts marked with [EDIT] were made since originally posting this thread.

I though there was a way to do that in Sense 5 Toolbox. I could be wrong though.

It's not. Already checked that as it was the first mod I installed after rooting KK.
