Default Removing carrier name from status bar without root?

I don't want to void my warranty just to remove the carrier name from the upper left side of my status bar but my carrier name is quite long and taking up space that could be filled by notifications.

Does anyone know how I can remove the carrier name without rooting my phone?

You could try RockMyMoto by jcase but I'm not sure it'd work on the Moto G.

It's such a cheap phone though..are you honestly that worried about unlocking the bootloader?

Suppose I already have root, how do I get rid of the damn thing? MotoXposed does get rid of it but also crashes SystemUI every couple of minutes so that does not help. Perhaps I should look at the specific part of MotoXposed and try to hack it into Gravity Box...

do you have Xposed Framework installed on top of MotoXposed, with motoxposed enabled?

Have you tried a reboot after applying the label removal fix?

Now, do you have root or not?
If yes, take SystemUI.apk from here.
