I quite like the Rogers 4.4.2 kitkat build, other then the carrier name being displayed in the upper left of the status bar. A little searching here indicated user "Ctrl-Freak" had patched his AT&T 4.4 build to remove the carrier name. I contacted him and asked if he could patch the Rogers 4.4.2 build for me. The next day I had a patched SystemUI.apk file to install on my Moto X.

To install this file you will need to be rooted and running the Rogers 4.4.2 build.
I used TWRP to backup the two original files - /system/priv-app/SystemUI.apk and /system/priv-app/SystemUI.odex
I then copied the patched SystemUI.apk over the original and deleted the SystemUI.odex. Just to be safe ensure the permissions on the new SystemUI.apk are 0644.
Reboot and you're good to go.
I believe this only works with the Dalvik runtime.

You can get the patched file here:

You can see Ctrl-Freak's original AT&T mod instructions here:

100% of the credit for this goes to Ctrl-Freak !!!


edit:

I have created an updated version myself(never hurts to learn how to do this stuff) that has the battery percent meter enabled as well as the text inside the battery switched to a slightly larger font and changed to black.

You can download it here:

Since you have TWRP, you have root.

Xposed Installer
HideCarrierMotoX

Works on Rogers 4.4.2

No need to overwrite anything, easily reversible.
Two thumbs up!

Yup....I found this eventually too. Works great.

But good find Steve-x on an alternative for non xposed users.

Using xposed would be easier, but I have seen people report it can cause a little bit of lag. Since I only wanted the one change I think this is a more efficient mod.
