    Default Remove Carrier Namer?

    Can anybody remember the tweak to remove the carrier name? I've printed out my list of tweaks I had but I can't see that one.

    FakeCarrier as already mentioned, or if you have SBSettings, you can edit it there.

    Zeppelin is another option (it comes with a blank you can use)

    Let me throw in Springtomize 2. It's an overkill if all you want is to remove the carrier string, but it is an option.
    If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).

    Default Remove Carrier Namer?

    I've been using FakeCarrier and just set it to blank but I just stumbled upon something else Cydia, it's called DateCarrier. It replaces the carrier name with the current date and since I don't use SBsettings it's nice to have the date back in my status bar.

    I currently have DateCarrier on my 4s, it shows the date fine, but dues not update unless I reboot the phone, any suggestions would be appreciated,
    thanks

    I had the same problem and discovered you have to have the setting to automatically set date and time. It's under settings, general, date and time, set automatically to on.

    I checked, and it was set to on. I toggled it off then back on and the date updated. Hopefully it will now update daily. Thanks for the info

    Go into settings, privacy, location services then scroll to the bottom, system services and make sure that "Setting Time Zone" is switched to on.

    I tried this and still no update. I reinstalled DateCarrier, and for some reason, it still doesn't want to update. Not sure

    Well that's all I have, I'm guessing that you have tried to restart your phone right?

    yes, restarted it a couple times. I will just screw around with a few other things, I would really like to have the date on the status bar. Thanks again for your suggestions. If I happen to stumble onto something that fixes it I will be sure to let you know.

    If you have springtomize 2.0 this will not only take care of this for you but introduce you to a number of other tweaks to add/remove from the status bar...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I am a newbe here, I have a 4S with 6.1, I love the phone since I jailbroke it. I am trying to go slowly with my mods simply because of the fact that it sounds like if I screw it up and have to do a restore, I will not be able to jailbreak again because of 6.1.3. I would not like that to happen. One of my main concerns is that I might add a package that conflicts with one already running on my phone, I am not really sure if that is possible. I do have Activator, Shrink, WeeWorldClock, 2x2 folders, Auxo, Bolt, Infinidock, Lockinfo 5Netmeter, and several others. From what I read about springtomize 2.0, it sounds like something that has the same functions that some of my current tweaks have. Thus my concern. And again, possibly I worry about nothing, just don't want to get to the point where I really screw it up. That being said, any idea if springtomize does conflict with other packages, or is that not really a concern.
    Thanks again for your response.

    If you are concerned about conflicts, you may want to ditch Auxo. I had serious issues with that since downloading it. 4S on 6.0.1 and that put me into safe mode several times. Thought that I might be able to use it, but wasn't worth the risk.

    Springtomize 2.0 worked flawlessly on my 4S. I never had any issues with it, and I had other tweaks downloaded as well, including Infinidock and Activator like yourself.

    Thanks for the information, I might have to try Springtomize 2 after all
