    It definitely bumps your speeds if you're in an XLTE area. Been running it for a few weeks with no issues.

    All I would say that thing is useful for is

    Ability to edit apn

    XLTE indicator


    But even the XLTE indicator doesn't work right cause the phone will display XLTE even when your on regular band 13 LTE.

    Not that it couldn't be done solely through file, but I don't really know where you'd put the edited .ipcc file.

    You'd edit them in place. It could be done in iFile alone. All carrier bundles are nothing more than a ZIP file containing a few plist files.

    CommCenter patches and carrier file hacks like that make me nervous.
    Only way to undue them if something goes wrong will be a dfu restore and setup as new. And those files are put out periodically by carriers and if you modify and cannot accept stock ipcc updates then your service with the network will suffer.

    If I understand Intell correctly, you'd need to extract the files from the .ipcc file and then manually place them inside the correct location through iFile. Probably much easier to use iTunes.

    I just did it with ifile. Delete old verizon lte bundle and past the new file. So easy. Just one file.

    On Verizon's website it says that there won't be an indicator to notify you that you're on a XLTE tower.

    Why would this hack want you to include a XLTE indicator that is always displayed, even when you're in a regular LTE tower.

    It looks cool this way:D
    Kinda like the 4G indicator AT&T and Tmobile display with the 3G networks.

    If I wanted to go back to stock I just have to delete a couple of files and reboot twice. Doesn't sound too bad.
