    So I used MIM (Make it mine) to change the carrier logo to say HaX but I have seen people have their Carrirer logo text have a cursive font and for example a blue color. How do you do that?

    This can be done either by creating your own custom carrier image.

    It can also be done by using WinterBoard with an Info.plist with a key OperatorNameStyle.

    There's two ways; with WinterBoard and I believe you can edit the files inside SpringBoard. I think it's FSO_Carrier_iPod.png and Default_Carrier_iPod.png.

    Edited to correct, thanks jlocalled.

    ^^ Incorrect, it is FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png, and Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png.

    Make Two Images with the Above Names. Have them at 20px high. FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png is the one you would like to have when the Status Bar is transparent, and when the rest of the Text is White.
    Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png is the one you would like to have when the Status Bar is not transparent, and when the rest of the Text is Black.

    Create a New Theme. In the Theme Folder, create a "Bundles" Folder. Inside, create a "com.apple.springboard" Folder. Place your carrier images inside. There is another way, and that is to instead of creating a "Bundles" Folder, create a "Folders" Folder, and inside create a "SpringBoard.app" Folder. Either way should work.

    Here's an important thing. You CANNOT have changed the text using MiM. It must say iPod.

    There is a guide with more information on how to use WinterBoard to theme common elements of SpringBoard. http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=102569
