    running Rooted Samsung Galaxy S 2.2 Froyo, Followed the instructions yet nothing changed. To be honest it was a little vague on what would be changed exactly, judging from the pictures its the carrier name in the drop down notifications window that is whats being changed from att to the name you want

        Yes. I know. And my phone is rooted. And it does not work. Any bright ideas other than a statement of the obvious and an erroneous assumption?
