    Hey guys,

    I'm not really sure if there's a tweak that can do this on 4.2.1 but I'm looking to change the OPTUS carrier name to something personalised. I've done it on previous versions but is there a tweak compatible with 4.2.1?

    Cheers

    Ben

    Look for FakeCarrier in Cydia, works fine for me.

    FakeOperator just got updated and now consistently crashes springboard on 4.2.6. So watch out for that one.

    I really want makeitmine to work with 4.2.1 because from what I understand it doesn't use mobilesubstrate to operate.

    I'm using fakecarrier now though, until MiM works again.

    Thanks everyone, it worked perfectly with FakeCarrier.
    I also used to use MiM but was stopped in my tracks when I upgraded to 4.2.1! Hopefully support is added soon.

    I haven't had any Springboard crashes on 4.2.6 w/ Fake Operator.

    The only thing I've had a crash with is the known bug in SnowCover4.

    FWIW, FakeCarrier made my iPhone 4 randomly restart about 10 times a day when I had it installed.

    Same here. AFAIK Fake carrier just replaces a system file and then is done. Easier for some then SSH.
