Zeppelin : Operator Icon Tweak

Today i was able to get airtel to assign me the batman status officially on my iPhone. I know everybody is envying me now but i worked for it. Its one of those great feelings you have which you cant explain in words. I repeatedly click on power button just to have a look at it because i feel its inevitably much more fun and cooler to look at then 'Airtel' written besides signal bars.

Now, one thing i want to tell you is that i am no batman and obviously airtel feels the same( :P). The secret besides this batman logo is a cydia based tweak by iOS developer jivhg that lets me replace network operators name with a specific image. Its no rocket science and although it may seem hard to digest for new iPhone users but as you will find out its quite really simple.

So, lets make you batman too. :)

Installing Zeppelin

Step 1: First of all,as expected , you need a jailbroken iDevice with cydia installed. If you dont know how-to jailbreak your iDevice, head over to Jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 Untethered (for all iOS 5.x and lower users) or iOS 6.x Untethered Jailbreak (for iOS6 adapters) .

Step 2: After you are done with jailbreaking and installing cydia(this has to be done manually only if you are on iOS6), restart your phone.

Step 3: Scroll the screens and open Cydia. New jailbreakers choose user in starting. Let it load and become steady(that means it is done with all reloading there was to be done).

Step 4: Click on search tab in the bottom right corner of the screen. Then search of zeppelin (as shown in the screenshot below). Click on the first search result(i.e. zeppelin) and when it comes up click on Install in the upper right corner of the screen.

Step 5: Now, click on confirm and then let it download. When done 'Restart to Springboard' should come up. Click it and your device will be restarted.

Now when your device restarts, instead of your network operator name you will have batman logo in the status bar like i had in the very first picture.
PS: Your screen wont be blurred as shown in the right side of result image. Its just editing to highlight the Batman Logo.

So here you go, you are batman too now. Go fight crimes in the night :P
By the way, first scroll down to know how to set this logo to your liking.

Setting Up Zeppelin

There have been tweaks in past for this but the reason i like this one is that it pops-up in settings menu after getting installed. Now from here you can disable the tweak to get back your network operator name which now eliminates the need of removing the tweak from cydia everytime you wanted to hide it. Also, it lets you chose from 19(18 logos + none) theme settings apart from the option on-off toggle gives you.

As you can see the list is quite tempting. The best part is the icons are not limited to the default set of logos zeppelin offers. All you have to do to get more is install a specific icon pack and you are good to go. But the default pack is in no way a weak one.!!
So, guys go ahead, change the logo in your status bar and become what you would like to be :)
