This is an app that changes what carrier name is diplayed in for example the lock screen and the status bar. It requires root because it modifies system files, and because it uses root it's potentially dangerous. Use it at your own risk, I'm not responsible if your device explodes in your face!
I had much trouble figuring out how to do this so I wanted to spare others the trouble by making this app. Please send me bug reports so I can fix any bugs you find.
Update1: Don't use any special characters because it will be used in an xml file so for example a double quote sign will break the file.
Update2: This will probably not work on the evo with stock rom and will not work with any rom that only shows what network you're connected to. This app only changes the carrier name wich is taken from your sim card. There are some roms that allows you to change this for example Cyanogenmod 6 where you can change so that it shows your spn.
Update3: I'm currently working on making this app work on all android devices by patching framework-res.apk
This app is also availble on the android market for $0.99, please consider buying the app it would make my face go
