[APP]carrier name
 
3 Attachment(s)
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 :D

not working on Dell Streak DJ_Steve's ROM v1.5.2 froyo,

tried puttin in my name with and without brackets and rebooting, didnt work.

I would really like to do this to totally debrand my device.

I really like like the concept of this app especially since the ways available to do this on the Evo are somewhat extensive.

Unfortunatley, this first version is not working on my Evo. I'm running a stock rooted deodexed rom. I will keep following this thread.

P.S. I also tried putting in my name with and without brackets and nothing worked. Also pressing the reboot button in the corner didn't work.

If any of you have access to the terminal on your device and know how to use it please check if the app has made the file /system/etc/spn-conf.xml and make sure it has the following contents:






I hope I can fix so that it works for you, it works on my HTC tattoo with cm6 and my friends galaxy with cm6. Please help my find why its not working so I can fix the problems you are having.
