Hey guys, I jail broke my iphone ages ago and when it was jailbroken i changed the carrier name and made it show the battery pacentage. And they were the only things that stayed there after i restored it. Now i would LOVE to have the normal carrier name. but id like to keep the battery pacentage.

Is there a way to do this?

Download FakeCarrier

Edit: just realized you aren't jailbroken. You can't because changing carrier name edits a string in English.lprog/SpringBoard.strings. It saved that string in the back up and you restored from it. That part doesnt require jailbreak so that's why you have the edited carrier name

Do a regular firmware restore (without jailbreaking) and "Set up as a new iPhone" instead of restoring from a backup.
