Almost all android smartphone has a carrier label located on the notification bar, which allows you to display your current network operator, but for those who prefer the simple look UI, a carrier label could be a problem, since they think it will cluttering their notification bar. Same goes with the AT&T LG Optimus G Pro, you will notice AT&T label on the left side of the notification bar.
Fortunately there is a recognized themer from xda with username MrDSL, he builds recovery-flashable mod to remove AT&T label permanently from Optimus G Pro (LGE980). This is very useful for those who hate to see a carrier label on their phones and desire a clean look.
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):
- Get the flashable mod file (no_carrier.zip) on MrDSL’s thread on xda and save it.
- Boot into recovery, install zip from sdcard and then find the saved mod file.
- 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.
