    We all know that MakeItMine (MIM) isn't compatible yet with iOS 4.0 but I have found another method to change the carrier name without MIM

    What you need

    Jailbroken iDevice (iPod, iPhone, iPad)
    SSH Client (WinSCP,iFunBox)


    Guide


    1. Connect you're iPod via you're ssh client.

    2. Navigate to \System\Library\CoreService\SpringBoard.app, and locate the file named N72AP.plist.

    3. Open it while in winscp. It will be encrypted an will look like so:

    4. Copy N72AP to you're desktop.

    5. Convert N72AP with This Converter.

    6. Save the converted file and rename it N72AP.

    7. Put N72AP back into \System\Library\CoreService\SpringBoard.app and replace the old one.

    8. Open N72AP. It will be unencrypted and will look like this now:

    9. Look for
    <key>device-name</key>
    Under it will be
    <string>THE NAME OF YOU'RE DEVICE(iPhone,iPod,iPad)</string>
    10. Mine is an iPod so it looks like this:

    11. Change where iPod is to anything you want (Name, Phrase, ETC,)

    12. I edited mine to Ed so it looks like this.

    13. Save the file.

    14. Respring you're Device.

    Here is some proof i'm running 4.0

    MakeItMine isn't compatible with iOS 4? That's strange because it works just fine on my iPhone 4.

    Don't complicate your life. MIM works fine on iOS 4.

    On the bright side, if someone is having problems with MIM, this guide will help.

    True. In the meantime i'll try to figure out some more of these strings like
    wifi
    true

    or

    multitasking
    true
