Seem Editing: Changing the Outside LCD Text
Other resources on the subject of seem editing can be found on this Howard Forums thread and this page at Nuclear Elephant.

It is also wise to save the original seem to your computer. That way if something goes wrong you can load it back the way it was.

First make sure the USB cable is plugged into the phone and the computer.

Start PST Phone Programmer.

Then start P2Kseem.exe. It should say connected at the bottom left corner of the application.

The thee fields you must concern yourself with are...

Bytes (h)
Seem:
Record:

In the Bytes (h) field put
20

In the Seem: put
449

In the Record: put
1

Click "Load from phone"

Click "Save to file" so you can load it back up (save from file) incase something goes wrong) I would just add "old" to the filename so all you need to do is erase "old" when you put it back. I'm not sure but I think I've read the name of the seem is important when it goes back on the phone.

It will then pull up information in the big window.

It in top right portion you will see something like

V.e.r.i.z.o.n. .
W.i.r.e.l.e.s.s.

Click on the "V" and replace it with one letter that you want. Next click the "e" and replace it. Do this until it says what you want. If you want a space just enter a space.

If you happen to accidentally overwrite one of those periods (as I did) you can't just hit the period key. Notice, for ever letter you change, there's a corresponding (hex) number on the left that changes. Those periods have a (hex) value of 00. (That's zero zero). To fix you're screw up, bring your mouse to the hex value that corresponds to the period. You can only edit one number at a time. So click the first value and hit zero then hit zero again to change the next value to zero.

I hope that makes sense.

If you just hit the period key, the display you want will not be the display you get.

Once you're finished click "Save to phone". Click "Restart phone" and wait a second. When the phone boots back up your outside LCD should be changed.

You can also save the seem to your computer and load it from your computer. Just use the appropriate button.

One thing to note, You must specify the bytes. I don't know why or what happens when you don't... but everything I've read says you have to do it. It's the number of bytes in hex. If you don't know what that means, just make a mental note of it. If you don't know what to put in there than you probably need to find more information before you replace the seem.

Or you could just do it and risk the phone. It's up to you.
