Make it Mine via Cydia lets you customize operator and banner

MakeITmine lets you remove the default carrier name like AT&T and put your name out there. The app also lets you customize the banner i.e. put a custom name instead of the clock that appears by default. All you have to do is enter some text in the white box and press either Carrier or Banner on the top to replace either! Sweet…

 The hack works swiftly on our iPhone 2.2 without any glitches. All done in a matter of seconds. This lightweight app is a real utility.

Cheers all and many thanks,

Just delete the text in the textbox and press banner with nothing in the textbox and you will get the clock back

Umm… Search Make It Mine on Cydia without the spaces, if that fails, search WITH the spaces.

The source for this app/mod is included in your Cydia’s installation.

chocolatesnice June 12, 2010 at 4:36 am

ANKUR August 24, 2010 at 12:28 am

Hahaha you guys downloaded the virus i made!

Rail September 12, 2010 at 2:04 am

I just upgraded to ios 4.1 and the carrier logo is the same as it was when i used ur app on my jailbroke phone. I have no other jailbreak features. Can u please tell me how to change back?

Scars September 12, 2010 at 2:55 am

Hi – I encountered a similar problem as Rail…. I had makeitmine app on my jailbroken 3g iphone and now that I upgraded to iphone 4 and downloaded my backed up apps my jailbroken MIM banner came over but obviously not the app…. how do I access the banner without the MIM app? and change back to iphone 4 original banner format?

Matt September 14, 2010 at 12:33 am

I have the same issue as Rail and Scars. I had jailbroken my iPhone 4 with 4.0.1, never upgraded to 4.0.2, but decided to upgrade to 4.1 with iTunes 10 to fix the proximity sensor issue that most iPhone 4 phones had. When I was on 4.0.1, I used MIM to create a banner, and I also used Apt Backup to backup my jailbroken apps for when the jailbreak becomes available for 4.1. I connected the restored iPhone to iTunes and synced my last backup to the phone. Problem is that now I have a banner with no way to see a clock or the change the banner. I can’t even SSH into the phone because it’s no longer jailbroken. Maybe I can find a cool apple employee who may be able to help me. Can anybody help?

Swifty September 22, 2010 at 6:01 pm

Me too. I’ve upgraded to 4.1 and mim banner and carrier logo still there. How to return to default

Matthew September 22, 2010 at 7:53 pm

I would also like to know if anyone has a solution to this. I would love to have my clock back instead of “Bam!” – don’t care too much that it still says Verizon on the carrier hehe

SCARS September 23, 2010 at 6:26 am

OK ,I see several people have this problem…including me… _ Not too many people with solutions though. So I’ve been thinking about this problem and I thought maybe I’d provide a possible solution. And if possible, I’ll like to get someone else opinion about this… OK here it goes: first take screen shots of springboard, so we can remember witch apps we have and how they’re all layout. Then reset the Iphone to its original settings ( IOS 4.1) and now instead of syncing to a back up copy we would just sync as a new device by selecting which apps we want from Itunes. Is this even possible? makes sense?

Matthew September 23, 2010 at 6:40 am

Hey! I fixed this! Easy fix. Just go into settings – general – reset – reset all settings

Worked like a charm and you don’t have to set up as a new phone.

Before my carrier was verizon :) (thanks MIM) and my clock said Bam! (thanks SB Settings) – now all are restored.

I would have kept jailbreak… But it’s too unstable. I was respring several times a day.

SCARS September 24, 2010 at 3:04 am

Thanks Matthew…it worked!! Too easy!!

Dee September 27, 2010 at 7:36 am

Thank you Matthew! Operator Logo is now back to default and SO easy! :)

Whats great about this app is that you can change the carrier/banner to your own email address so that if you lose your phone, someone might be bright enough to catch the email address at the top of the screen and contact you at it!

Serge December 29, 2010 at 10:22 pm

Can you put text next to the clock? By a code or something?

electech February 9, 2011 at 2:12 am

i tried downloading makeitmine from cydia and it says size mismatch. what does that mean?

Jacob February 24, 2011 at 8:56 pm

What is the font that’s used in the screenshots.

kevin February 25, 2011 at 4:37 am

I downloaded MIM just fine on my iPhone 4 with 4.2.1 But I can not change the carrier or the banner. I type in the box and then click the carrier/banner button and nothing happens. Tried deleting and then re-installing but still no luck. Thanks in advance.
