    Today I spenta few hours creating a custom carrier logo for O2-UK in Photoshop and playing with SSH

    I compleetly overwrote the:

    with my custom files:
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    That was all fine, but i wanted it to work with winterboard so i continued to add the folders to my themes folder:
    O2 Carrier Logo [HD].theme/Bundles/com.apple.O2_UK
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    I can then tick my carrier bundle in winterboard and it works (See Screenshot 1) I have my custom carrier working great

    My problem is that when ever i open an app it defaults to the normal O2 - UK carrier text (See Screenshot 2) and i don't know why

    Any one know how i can fix this and stop it from changing so i can keep using it through winterboard rather than replacing the default files

    Hmmm, not sure bro, im also trying to make a hi-res icon for ios4 but struggling,
    did you put your files in:
    system/..../..../carrier bundles

    or var/mobile/library/carrier bunder etc?

    also what sizes did you use?

    At the current moment in time I have it in the winterboard theme location and in the var/mobile/.../carrierbundles etc

    Because that makes it work all the time I just can't turn it on and off in winterboard I would have to ssh in and take the files out or use ifile

    i still cannot get the @2x to work for me.

    Could you try make me a quick logo?

    use font 'Edwardian Script ITC' and write 'J' size '1.25 pt' and 'ordan' size '2.25 pt' so it reads Jordan and looks proportional
    Every time i try it, the letter become square and pixelated.

    ill be so greatful if you can help

    That font also pixelates a lot for me too, probably not the best font to use for such a small image

    Where are you placing your files?
    also the image below shows how my directory looks when i ssh into it

    if you want just plain text why not use an app that changes your strings?

    @metaljay - I placed my @2x files in /var/mobile/library/carrier bundle.bundle and removed the original logos out of this folder, then pastes in the new ones

    As for Dan. Mine work inside Apple Apps but fail when I open 3rd party ones forcing them back to O2-UK

    No sorry man, I haven't.

    If I do, I will post it here, but by the looks of it since your the only one accept Beej2211 (whicih is my friend) who has posted I don't think I will get a fix to this
