    I don't really know if it is normal behaviour but the carrier name is eating the whole notification status bar. When I receive emails or texts, there is no room to display the gmail or text icon. How can I fix this? Perhaps the carrier name all together?
    Thanks

    it must be something with miuiandroid rom... when i installed JBL11 with miflash my carrier read "MTN" (which is the correct one) and after i installed miuiandroid rom 3.2.1 it reads "Simobil" ... before when i was using miuiandroid 3.1.1 it was "Areeba"

    I have tried to flash this from the bootloader in Miui but it doesn't seem to work. It flashes fine but I don't have any icons or signs of way to access the added settings.

    I have flashed this file to partition 1
    ControlPanelSuite_miuiandroid_aries_jb-3.2.1_System1-signed.zip

    Don't understand what I am doing wrong... Any ideas?

    If I remember right I ran into the same issue - you can try to use a file explorer app, browse to /system/app, remount /system read-writable, look for the control panel APK (don't remember the exact name) and change it's permissions to match all other apps in /system/app (= rw-r-r). That worked for me last time I tried.
    EDIT: Reboot neccessary after changing the permissions, forgot that one.

    the permission of control panel apk is not set correctly with the updater-script. i'll fix it this friday, sorry for that.

    I have the same problem with my carrier in Greece. I am using JBL11 and the carrier name as displayed is "COSMOTE-Mobile Telecommunications S.A." instead of Cosmote Screenshot_2013-02-11-12-22-57[1].png GR. Can i change it somehow or i have to flash 3.2.8?

    Do I still have to download the .zip or is it already in the latest rom?

    I believe it doesn't work in v5 as I asked in the mod forum and they said to wait.
    I only get "Vodafone UK"but it's enough to prevent all but one symbol notification appearing.
    I agree it's somewhat (very) annoying!

    I really don't need to see my carrier name at all let alone at the expense of notifications.

    Thanks, but I'm a bit scared to install apk with random names.
    Did it few years back and it didn't play nice with my old legend phone.

    Where is it from please?

    :cool:
