Hide Carrier Label v2

before after


This Xposed module hides the carrier name on the top left corner on the lockscreen.

There's already a module that does the same but unfortunately it doesn't work for me and others, so I created my own module.
It uses the newer Xposed-API approach (described here), so maybe that's why it works and the other one doesn't, I don't really know.

To all developers out there: I'm sure there's a better (/easier) way to hide the label, but this is my way and for me it works. I hope I can help others who feel annoyed by the carrier label on the lockscreen.

Tested on OnePlus' OxygenOS (Android 5.1.1, API 22).
Tested on CyanogenMod 12.1.

- Xposed Framework
- Android 5.0 (API 20) or above

Gonna give it a go
OnePlus Two, OxygenOS 2.1.2, Android 5.1.1.
Xposed v79 sdk22.

Will report back when I reboot.

Tested and working great
Maybe, if u have time, u could work in a way to edit/change the label to a custom value. All other modules that do this, do not work on OnePlus Two.

Thanks for testing and reporting back. I'm glad to hear it's working.
Unfortunately I won't have much time in the next few weeks, sorry.

If anyone's interested to try this themselves:
The class normally extends TextView, but in older CM versions and apparently in OxygenOS it extends LinearLayout.
Full class here and here's a comparison.

Finally a module that works on xperia lock screen. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!! Works on xperia z stock rom 5.1.1 (so it should work on its newer siblings). Maybe in the future you'll get rid of status bar annoyance of carrier label. 😀 😀 😀
And for further testing, I'm all yours. 😉

Thanks man!

@Hell Bomb
Are there any errors in your Xposed Log?
To fix it I would need your '/system/framework/framework-res.apk' and '/system/priv-app/SystemUI/SystemUI.apk' (this path could differ, search if it's not there).

Hey - works for me on edge s6 6.0.1 but since I installed phone seems to be kinda glitchy - delayed wakes and some lag. I rebooted and resprung and seems to have helped a bit. Maybe unrelated to this pkg who knows
