FakeCarrier is an application that allows you to easily customize both your carrier name and time string in the Status Bar. The app is super simple to use. Once installed, it has three options; Fake Carrier, Fake Time and Show BatteryLevel. To change the carrier or time string just open the option, type your custom message into the space provided and select Set. The string will instantly change without having to close the app or respring your device… this is a nice feature because then you can instantly see what your custom string looks like and if you do not like it, you can just change it right there. To get the stock Carrier name of Time string back, just tap Reset. Simple and easy.
The Carrier name needs to be less than twelve characters to display the entire field. If your custom Carrier name is longer than twelve characters is will display the first eight characters and then ….. The time strings allows for a much longer custom string. I did notice that the app does have a few glitches. When you have a long custom time string and then change the Carrier name to something over ten characters… it gets a little confused. I had a few instances where the app didn’t work exactly correctly but overall… it got the job done. If you find things are really messed up, just reset everything and then respring your device.
FakeCarrier also has an option to turn on the battery percentage next to the battery image on the Status Bar. This will display the current battery percentage along with the battery image. This is probably a more useful option for those on older firmwares. The new iOS’s have this option built-in stock… you can do this by going into the stock Settings application then the General option and then the Usage option. There you will see the Battery Percentage option which you can turn on/off.
You can get FakeCarrier via the BigBoss source.
