Carriers for Super Status Bar

OK. One of my favorite apps is Super Status Bar. I've posted status bars before for it as it allows you to customize it. After asking the developer if he could possibly add the option to use images to replace the carrier logo, he has gratefully and quickly tweaked it to do so. I know the app is buggy and he has asked me to help him note what needs fixing. This is great news.
Here are a few images of the carriers I have made. Follow the instructions.

How to add carriers:
After saving icons, with your file app move them to the following: sdcard/android/data/com.firezenk.ssb/carriers. The image you want to use at the moment is to be renamed "carrier". Each time you change it just turn off SSB and turn back on to apply changes.
To activate Images for Carriers: Open SSB then go to elements/carrier and select Use sdcard image. Done.

    1. @Julie Thx love. Well, for the size I'm using a transparent background 165x85 and then have the image centered within so there's some room on the sides between other icons and what not. Ant the image comes out a decent size and not squished.

    4. Now I've noticed that you have to name the image carrier.png but you can only have one image named that in the carrier folder at a time?? So I have to keep deleting an image everytime I want to use a new one??

    5. @Julie : Not at all. I just rename the ones I don't want to use and leave theme there. Example: carrier1, carrier2, etc..

    1. I use andexplore. It allows u to unzip and move around folders within your device. And you will see everything that's on you phone through it. There are a few different ones to choose from.

    1. This is the only post. After saving the image all you have to do is use your file app, select it by long pressing the image which should be in sdcard/downloads. Then move it to the location listed above. Once there, long press the item again and rename it to carrier. Then make sure you have the carrier image from sd card activated in the SSB app.

  7. Hi Lucy! I do have to purchase the Super Status Bar App before I can customize with images right? The free version won't do, is it? Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you in advanced!

    1. @Corrine You can change the image of the carrier without the full version but you won't be able to use and change themes with the signals, batteries, etc unless you have the full version.
