Trick to rename Username

Some people would like to rename the Username later.

Till now this is not possible, but you can use a trick.

example to change from “Default User” to “Mirinda”

1. Export your User Data “Default User” to your SD-Card

NOW very important otherwise also you saved your data, they may not on the sdcard:
– On your phone, tap on Settings.
– Under Settings, tap on SD card & phone storage.
– Now tap on Unmount SD card.
– When you do, this option will be grayed out because the card will be unmounted

2. Rename the File on your Sd-Card ¬†“default_user.myd”¬†into “mirinda.myd”


  • Prefer to use a free Filemanager from the app market to rename the file on the sdcard (like “astro”).
  • Should u prefer to put the backup file into your computer, You should UNMOUNT the SdCard before you remove it from your device, otherwise the data may not be saved from android to the card (that always happen in delay) and you would get a empty Backup file.

3. Create a User “mirinda” in the Application

4. Click Import (so now “mirinda.myd” comes imported)

Thats it :)

    Oh my gosh!!!! I love you so much for this post. I knew there was a way to work around that. It took me a minute to figure out; because I had to move the app on to the SD card blah, blah, blah. You do not understand how happy I am because my icon no longer says “default user”. Ah!!! Now I can rest.
