Just tell us what you want made, I'll make it by tomorrow if you want then host it as a .png with a transparent background. It just has to be ~72x20 or smaller.

It can be anything, not just text.

yeah, you cant open that file without running a routine on it that unlocks it. I couldnt get it to work on mine (opening it that is). However, I read somewhere about the size of that picture, so I just created a .png file, with the same proportions, and a transparent background and loaded it to the same file where the old ones were (note: there are two CUSTOME_CARRIER and FF0 something-or-other... cant remember exactly). One .png is for the main bage when you are looking at your icons and the other is for when you are in an application.

Just name the files you created the same name as the ones in that file. I changed their names beause I wanted to make sure that if I messed it up, all i had to do was go back into that folder and delete the '-old' that I had appended to that file to get my original carrier text back.

I hope that helps,
Arisian

Tada! Here's the one you want to save (the transparent background). The second one is just how it looks with a black background (don't save this, you want to use the transparent one for the carrier image).


Name it "Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png" with the same capitalization and another one as "FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png" with the same capitalization. Sorry it took so long, had stuff to do this morning. :p
