Change Your iPhone’s Carrier Logo Without Any Jailbreak [VIDEO]

While there are tons of Cydia tweaks that let you modify or replace your iPhone’s carrier logo, a new Mac application developed by Kevin Ko (@uhelios) and Daniel Levi (@Pix3lDemon) called CarrierEditor lets you do this without jailbreaking your device, as pointed out by AppAdvice. Simply follow the steps given below to change your iPhone’s carrier logo (a video tutorial is also embedded at the end):

Step 6:

Finally, open iTunes after connecting your iOS device with its USB cable and click on “Restore” while holding down the “alt / option” key. Navigate to the “.ipcc” file created earlier that does not include the word “original” in its name. iTunes will show you “Updating carrier settings” box. Once done, reboot your device and you should see your new carrier logo appear at the top.

That’s it. Enjoy!
