Zeppelin, the popular tweak that lets you change the carrier logo on your iPhone, is now updated to support iOS 7. I think after Cydia Installer’s update, everything is moving pretty fast and tweaks are rapidly becoming iOS 7-compatible.
To the uninitiated, Zeppelin is the Cydia tweak that lets you change the logo of the carrier to anything else. Zeppelin comes pre-packaged with some cool logos that you can use right away but it also lets you add more customized icons/logos.
How to Change iPhone’s Carrier Logo on iOS 7
You will find Zeppelin on Cydia. Since it’s updated recently, let Cydia refresh the packages once when you launch. Up next, look for Zeppelin and install it. A respring after the install should get you started. Changing the carrier logo is simple: head over to Settings → Zeppelin and pick the logo of your choice.
Zeppelin also lets you use your own images (or the icons you get from the web).
Using Your Own Logos
There’s a bit of technical stuff involved here but basically, it’s just two things:
- Your icons need to be formatted properly as non-retina png files and retina png files.
- You’ll need iFile to put them into the /Library/Zeppelin folder.
You can pick up from this thread and follow the link for the manual. Or you can just check out the Zeppelin folder in your iPhone/iPad and see how the icons are formated.
Zeppelin Is Not Working!?
Update: Mobile Substrate now updated. Check out this post on upgrading the Substrate.
Some – or probably a lot of – users have faced problems with Zeppelin not working as intended. Like we keep saying, this is a Mobile Substrate issue and till evad3rs and Saurik finish tweaking Mobile Substrate for iOS 7, you might have to try re-installing Mobile Substrate and use Zeppelin. Might take a few attempts before Zeppelin kicks in.
Zeppelin is available for free on the ModMyi repo.
