Patch webOS Change Carrier String
Further testing has revealed that editing bar-scene.html fails. The following is a revised mod as a result of that testing.
Want to change the Sprint text in the upper left hand corner to something more interesting? Maybe your name or different carrier to fake out your friends? Well here’s how:
You’ll need to: Enable Root Access
Log in and execute the following commands:
Unlock the file system:
mount -o remount rw /
Edit the following:
Go to line 440 and make this change. Of course, instead of using "Verizon" you can use what ever string you would like.
//$('carrier').innerHTML = this.carrierText $('carrier').innerHTML = $L("Verizon");
Turning on and off Airplane Mode brings back the "sprint". To get it to show your string like "Verizon" again; Goto line 698 and make this change.
//$('carrier').innerHTML = this.carrierText; $('carrier').innerHTML = $L("Verizon");
Lock your file system:
mount -o remount ro /
initctl stop LunaSysMgr initctl start LunaSysMgr
