    Just updated to 4.1 and as a Tesco Mobile iPhone 4 owner was 'delighted' to see it now shows Tesco rather than O2!.

    My frugality is there for all to see!

    :D

    o2 and Tesco us the same masts etc for signal, so that might have been the issue before.

    Tesco with the new update

    Just updated my iphone 4 to the latest 4.1 and have notised instead of it saying 02-uk (im on tesco) it now reads as Tesco

    Not a huge deal but just thought I would let tesco owners know.

    Cant wait to check out game center!

    edit: thanks mods for merging the threads appreciate it.

    And just tried your link in chrome and it worked fine ... -_- so why isnt safari letting me see it properly.. oh well

    Why, you chose Tesco as you didnt want Orange etc so deal with it showing who YOU chose?

    Fixed!

    I have worked out a fix for this.

    ensure your iphone is jailbroken - For iphone 4.1 please visit www.limera1n.com
    ensure your iphone has ssh installed (if not install OpenSSH from Cydia)
    ssh to your iphone - login (username=root, password=alpine)
    Enter the following commands
    Code:
    cd /System/Library/Carrier\ Bundles/
    unlink 23410_GID1-0AFFFF
    ln -s O2_UK.bundle/ 23410_GID1-0AFFFF
    If anyone would like to send a small donation to my paypal account (p17blo@hotmail.com) it would be greatly appreciated.

    All the best

    Paul
