Remove Carrier name text from the status bar
Hi guys, I managed to edit some XML files in the SystemUI.apk file and then replaced the original APK from my phone,
on the XML files I edited the line where it shows the carrier name on the status bar.
If you are anoyed by this as I was, here's my SystemUI.apk if you want to try it out in your phone:
INSTALL ONLY IF YOU ARE ON THE ROM ON THIS THREAD
1.- Make a nandroid backup
2.- using root-explorer copy your current /system/app/SystemUI.apk and save it in your /sdcard/backupAPK folder, create folder if it does not exist.
3.- Copy the SystemUI.apk in the attachments on your sdcard root folder. Make shure the file name is "SystemUI.apk"
4.- Using root-explorer copy the SystemUI.apk from your sdcard root and paste it in /system/app
5.- Select overwrite and reboot your phone.
If something goes wrong and the system cant load the SystemUI you phone will boot up with no status bar, no wallpaper and no navigation bars,
but you can still access your root-explorer app and restore your SystemUI.apk backup, reboot and everything will go back to normal.
I'm thinking on creating a separate thread with instruction on how to decompile SystemUI.apk, edit the necessary XML file and recompile again, what do you guys think?
