    putting your name and contact info on the phone is a decent idea, keeps honest people honest and gives them a way to get it back to you. I've read of people putting that info on their boot splash screen too, to really make it obvious who the phone belongs to.
    Here's a neat app that lets you put your contact info on the lock screen: https://market.android.com/details?i...e=related_apps

    I created a contact with my email address as the "name", since I didn't need that on the screen twice.



    PS. My apologies for a slight hijack.

    I'm on Harmonia, and I edited the build.prop file. The drop down changed, but now there's nothing on the lock screen. How do I get the lock screen text to work? Thanks in advance

    I don't think the lock screen is supposed to have any text. Mine doesn't and never has (currently on Harmonia 1.6).

    It shows on the lockscreen on CM7 builds, even scrolls if you use the decompile method and go above 15 characters, but I've never tried it on Harmonia, so I don't know if the lockscreen might be different.

    I second that, mine doesn't have anything there either (edited build.prop, on Harmonia 1.6) unless I turn on airplane mode. Then it shows "(no service)"

    That is referring to the custom ROM you flashed, it came in a zip file.

    Thank Jerry for the Guide, I actually understood how the hex thing worked after staring at it. Numbers on left, Letters on right. Letters that are highlighted meaning letters on left. :s

    These instructions are for Gingerbread and Froyo. ICS is a completely different animal and hacks like these are unlikely to work without some modification.

    That was merged after this thread was made. But if you do it this way, you can change the carrier name in any android OS.

    You have to open Framework-res.apk with Winrar/zip and navigate to res>xml>eri.xml

    OK so i did this via apk manager went into this xml and replaced

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="1" IconIndex="1" IconMode="0" EriText="Virgin Mobile" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    Is this the right one, its the only one that says Virgin Mobile...
    I then recompiled(without Signing, since it says not to with system apks) and pushed it to frameworks folder. phone hangs up on cm9 boot animation.

    Any clues????

    Also i change lcd density, phone didnt work, tried to change phone apk with htc wildfire s phone From a ICS rom(since im running ICS) and now contacts forceclose.

    Wildfire isn't LDPI, its MDPI.


    I used winrar to change the eri.xml

    You need to edit just like in Jerry's guide using HxD hex editor.

    OK so how do I get my phone to work with lower LCD density? I know a lot of people were using different phone to fix but can't find which one.
    I'll check out Jerry's destructions:thumbup:
