    Is there anyway to remove the service provider text from the lock screen? I am rooted on jdsingle76 4.3 rom.

    Use Xposed Installer and Wanam module for TouchWiz. XBlast Tools works awesome as well, but it is better to not have both Wanam and XBlast at the same time since they have too much overlap in terms of available features. Basically, use Wanam if you are on any version of TW, use XBlast for anything AOSP.

    P.S. You can remove the text altogether or make it say anything you want, like "I love JD's ROM" or whatever works for you!

    Try typing just a "space" so it thinks there is custom text there.

    I'm having trouble with XBlast as well. It doesn't apply changes to my carrier info.

    Most Xposed changes, via the modules, require a reboot to make them apply. I also keep my lock screen widget (Dashclock) maximized so I never even see the carrier label in the first place. Just changed it and then rebooted to be sure it was working, change applied just fine after reboot. Now says GO BRONCOS!! in Holo Blue. Only other suggestion I have, if you want "blank" text in carrier label:
    Make your lock screen wallpaper completely black
    Set text color in XBlast to be black for lock screen label; you may need to type a symbol or a word as well in order to override the "blank for default" option
    Reboot
    Carrier label should now be the same color as background and therefore "invisible"

    I can verify that the Wanam module for Xposed is working on my device. Make sure the module is enabled, reboot, enter the module UI, make necessary changes, and reboot.
