I recently read about the use of RRO theming for the s8, so I took some practice and made this.

This mod basically hides the carrier label (AT&T, Verizon, etc...) from the status bar on the lockscreen and in the notification center (bottom).

You can see in both attached photos there is no carrier in the top left status bar and bottom of notification center.

Apk here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8DTpyUdT0UAeDF5a1E2OE5XVkU

Any thoughts? I'm making more of these mods. Give me ideas ;P

EDIT: I forgot I made another one. Gives you more precise animation scales in developer settings.

Can't add another photo since I already published so here's a Google photos link:

Nice, @Tigerhoods sent me this and is better than what I was currently doing. I just added .27 and .75 animation scales. I like what you have done more. We have both been putting our heads together and see all what other kids we can come up with. I am currently trying to get access for those of us who are carrier decided to remove the ability to display the weather icon on the lockscreen. I can add the access to a different XML, but because the original XML does not show the fragment, I can't currently get it to work. I asked in the Q&A thread if anyone had the the name of the shortcut.

If you want we need to get a telegram group together and see what all we can come up with. I currently have everything I have done on my git.

I made an oem unlock switch show up in a different area hoping to help out with root, but there is more that the Java files do when the switch is turned on than just a simple switch making a system broadcast.

I can't seem to figure out a way to take a screenshot of the lock screen, but just so you know if your carrier removal overlay is used with pimp's center clock mod the status bar icons (4g, signal, battery) all get super blurry on lockscreen...almost looks like multiple icons all laid over each other but not quite aligned.

Thanks for the report. It could be an issue with the way that pimps mod works making it incompatible with mine. I can look into it.

Cool, yah just figured you'd like to know. Either way very impressive work man, thanks for sharing!

So I turned my pin/fingerprint lock screen off, switched to none/swipe, then back to pin/fingerprint and for whatever reason that seemed to fix the issue.

hold power + volume down.

Lol, I can't believe I forgot about this already. I've been spoiled by the smart select edge screen. Thanks man.

I have a dumb question.

I down loaded and installed this. But I don't see an App called Galaxy Carrier Hider. Where does this show up in Settings?

Sorry for the dumb question.

Go to your file explorer and long press this APK and then select details and look at the name. That will be the same name that's in the settings. Are you wanting to delete it or something? It's not going to be an app, it's an overlay.

Is your carrier's name gone from the status bar and the pull-down menu? If so then this overlay is doing its job.:good:

Under Properties, it shows as "Galaxy Carrier Hide". But when I search Settings, it does not seem to show up even after reboot.

Yes, Carrier Name is gone indeed both on the lock screen and status bar :D

I am running the renovate 4.0 Rom if that matters on a S8+

Then you are good to go since carrier icons are gone. If you're wanting to uninstall it look for com.galaxycarrierhider.

I just uninstalled substratum/Samsung add-on, custom navbar, and anything else that might interfere. Even after I uninstall this app, the quick settings do not reappear
