Make sure you have a custom recovery, 2nd-init CWM or TWRP recovery can be used to flash this mod. Then make sure you also have a full nandroid backup, since the developer didn’t build a mod to restore the carrier label. Below are a few simple steps to get rid of the carrier label from LGOG Pro (E980):

  1. Get the flashable mod file ( on MrDSL’s thread on xda and save it.
  2. Boot into recovery, install zip from sdcard and then find the saved mod file.
  3. Flash, reboot and profit.

After bootup you won’t notice any carrier label on the notification bar. Tested and reportedly working when working with 2nd-init AT&T CWM and TWRP recovery.
