    Here they all are. There are carrier images with white text to the right of the carrier images with black text. I made some additional ones with soccer balls, didn't turn out the greatest, instead of the Apple symbol. Enjoy.

    Here's my guide on using WinSCP, and here's my guide on putting your carrier images onto your iPod.
    --
    How to Set a Custom Carrier Image

    Step by Step:

    1. Save the image you are using as your custom carrier image, in PNG format.
    2. Using a SFTP program such as WinSCP, SSH into your iPod. If you do not know how to do so, follow the SSH guide found on the Guides section of this website.
    3. In your SFTP program, go to the following directory:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/
    4. For most carrier images, you have one with black text and the other with white text. Carrier images with white text are shown on SpringBoard and carrier images with black text are shown when an application is open. The filename for the white text carrier image is 'Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png' without quotes, and the filename for the black text carrier image is 'FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png' without quotes. If you have a colored carrier image, it should be named 'Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png' and the other carrier image does not need to be changed. Now, we want to replace these files with our own custom carrier images. Step 5 explains how to do so.
    5. Rename your white text/colored carrier image as 'Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png' and rename your black text carrier image as 'FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png'. Place these into the directory given in Step 3. If you are worried about loosing the originals, make backups of the original images. Making a backup is as simple as copying the original image to your desktop.
    6. Restart your iPod, and viola! You now have a custom carrier image!

    Using SFTP / How to SSH into your iPod

    Before following any of these steps, be sure that your iPod is connected to your wireless home network. Do not let your iPod go into standby while following these steps. It can cause some minor issues. (Just tap your screen every 30 seconds or so...)

    Step by Step:

    1. For this guide, we are going to be using WinSCP.
    2. Open up WinSCP and a window will ask you for a:
    Host name
    Port Number
    Username
    Password
    3. To find your Hostname, tap 'Settings' followed by 'Wi-Fi'.
    4. Next, tap on the arrow to the right of the network you are connected to. You will find a field saying 'IP Address' with a number to the right. This is the number you will be typing into the 'Host Name' field on WinSCP.
    5. The next field says 'Port Number' and should be set to 22.
    6. The default username is root and the default password is alpine.
    7. Next, click 'Login'.
    8. Now, a window will pop up showing the directories of your iPod. You can now successfully browse through the folders and subfolders of your iPod on your computer. To add a file from your computer onto your iPod, you can copy and paste files from your computer into the appropriate folders on your iPod.

    Hope that helps!

    Here are the Firefox ones. The first one is just the logo. White text carrier images are to the right of the black text carrier images.
