Notification Bar and Lock Screen Carrier Name
Please someone tell me I'm not being incredibly dense and that I actually have a valid problem that hasn't been addressed elsewhere on the forums. I assure you I have searched for a solution to this but can find nothing pertaining to the desire... I did find other posts but they have all been for the Droids (like pulldown editor)
As a new user I can't post links but to see the screenshots of what I'm about to talk about but please see the attachments at the bottom for an idea.
I really don't want my phone to say Virgin all over it...I just want a generic 'I'm Awesome' message or alternatively nothing. 'Virgin' takes up lots of room on the notification bar that would be better spent notifying me of things...!?
I tried to resolve the problem using MetaMorph...which required root access...and despite Paul (thanks coming shortly) saying we wouldn't be able to write to the /system folder, I just hoped (blindly (and foolishly)) that it would work. But it didn't.
Now I have a rooted HTC Desire that works in every respect but I still can't get rid of those Carrier titles...and thats the only thing I want to do. Does anyone have any ideas or solutions...is it blatantly obvious?
I've pulled my /system folder over but I don't even know what I'm looking at...
If anyone can give me a heads up, that'd be great.
I must note here a massive thanks to Paul who's root instructions were amazingly easy to follow. I know this is the wrong place for it but a massive thanks to him.
