    I've looked around but can't find anything quite like what I'm looking for.

    What I'm looking for is a tweak that will fake signal. So in the top it will have signal bars, carrier name, then wifi. Any tweak that can do this?

    So do you want them to always show full reception? Is that what you're trying to accomplish?

    That would work.

    It's just that all I've found in my search are just changing the carrier name which I can do with Springtomize, and changing the wifi bars to signal bars. I want to ADD signal bars along with the other 2 items.

    Well you can change them yourself. Just find a signal bars theme, then change all the icons to the same image, and voila, no matter what the signal is, you always have that displayed.

    However I am not technical enough to give you all the correct steps to achieve this.

    Maybe a Zepellin logo that looks like you want?

    Zepplin would just allow me to change the carrier name. Already did that. I just need a way to fake it think I get signal.

    You named your username after a tweak? Lol.

    And is it so bad to make me want to feel like I have a 4G iPad :p

    I'm talking about creating a Zepellin logo with an image of the signal bars + your carrier. That way you have an image of the signal bars next to your carrier.

    That might work. I'll try that and see how it works.

    Good idea! And maybe a fellow MR member with a 4G iPad will upload the signal bar images so you can make it exactly like the stock status bar. Just put all the individual bars together and make one image. Then, like you said, use Zeppelin to insert it into the status bar

    I wonder if anyone would ever do this to scam local buyers on an iPad or something. Sell an iPad 2, claim it's a 4, put 4G so it's believable.

    Huh..

    I would look for the bar on the top before I buy :p

    But mine is in a case so you can't see it anyway :p

    Anyway it worked. Got the bars and carrier text from an iPhone 5 GUI PSD and put it in an image fit for the ipad, and it's perfect. I now have a "4G" iPad + Wifi.
