After weeks of searching and trying different methods, I finally have found a method that works!

First you will need to install a free package from Cydia called "Verizon Carrier Retina iOS 5"

After that you will need to SSH into your phone to System/Library/Carrier bundles/iPhone/Zeppelin_US.bundle

Edit the carrier.plist file.

Look for the line:
<key>StaticNATType</key>
<integer>448</integer>

In the next line insert:
<key>StatusBarImages</key>
<array>
<dict>
<key>AllowPrefixMatching</key>
<false/>
<key>CarrierName</key>
<string>Verizon</string>
<key>DefaultImage</key>
<string>Default_CARRIER_Zeppelin_US.png</string>
<key>FullScreenOpaqueImage</key>
<string>FSO_CARRIER_Zeppelin_US.png</string>
<key>StatusBarCarrierName</key>
<string>Verizon</string>
</dict>
</array>

**Keep this code handy, as the author claims you may need to re-edit the plist when you reboot your phone**

After that go to var/private/stash/themes.x/Verizon Carrier Retina iOS5.theme/Bundles/com.apple_US

make sure you have 3 copys of the carrier logo of your choice, and rename them exactly as the pngs in this file, then simply delete the 3 pngs in the file, and replace them with yours. Ensure you have the theme selected in Winterboard, Respring, and your custom carrier logo should appear :)

Enjoy! Let me know if you run into any problems, I'll try to help the best that I can.

"Verizon iOS 5 Carrier Logo Theme" is the package you are looking for. This package installs a theme folder in Winterboard called Verizon Carrier Retina iOS 5.theme.

The readme from this package states "P.S. Everytime you reboot your phone, you will most likely have to re-edit the .plist."

Get Zeppelin from Cydia (it is free)
Search around using Google until you find a Zeppelin logo pack that has a Verizon logo you like, use Cydia to download it
Open Zeppelin in settings and select it, done.

For example, I found a Straight Talk logo and used Zeppelin to install it.
