    Can I change the text that says "iPod" in the top-left corner of my iPT screen to whatever I please? I've seen it done on the iPhones, instead of saying the carrier it said the owner's name, does the same apply to the iPTs (aside from the fact that they don't say a carrier name to begin w/!)?
    If need-be, I can SSH it but I dont know where to go directory-wise and what to edit.
    ....And, since were already on the subject, can I change the username to SSH it, from "root" to whatever I please, if so, how? (I already changed the password so its not "Alpine" anymore.

    Go onto Cydia and download Makeitmine. Have Fun.

    My apologies for this (almost) epic bump, but is there a way to do this in an iPod Touch 4G running iOS 4.3.1? I tried Makeitmine, which naturally works in my old iPhone 3G, but it didn't change anything in my new iPod at all.

    Wish I could try it but Cydia gives the following message:

    Try again in a while. Ever since the new update I've been getting a lot of errors

    Just tried fakecarrier on my iPad 1, 4.3.1, and I'm glad to say that it works there as well for anyone who's interested.

    I just used "StatusNamer" on 4.2.1.

    Worked like a champ.
