    I know there is a patch for it, but I cant find or know the proper name of it. I know there is a way to change the Sprint name to your own custom name. I saw the thread a while back, but I hit a wall with the search option.

    I appreciate any help on the matter.

    Patch webOS Change Carrier String - WebOS Internals

    I don't know if there's an actual patch, since it would only be able to set the string to one thing at a time. There might be, though.

    This could be something Jason could easily put in WebOSQuickInstall...

    Maybe, either as a patch with a standard replacement string in it or maybe a field in the software where the string could be set. Totally possible but might be a little messy, though.

    I was thinking a combination... a patch that is edited right before being installed... just prompt to input string.. change patch file.. apply.. and done.

    Thanks for the replies on the matter, and a patch for such a mod would be cool. It will give your Pre a personal touch IMO.

    here is the patch i put together that enables you to change the carrier string as well as it's color and the color of the date and time. be sure to follow the instructions i have on the page to find out how to modify the file to include your own carrier string and color values and then install via QI.

    follow the link to the patch i posted above, change the text values to Sprint, and change the colors to #fff; and you will have it back to normal...nothing difficult at all.
