  • 'LockHTML2' Lets You Put Dynamic HTML Widgets on the Lock Screen and More

    If you致e ever used LockHTML in the past, then you値l be delighted to hear about LockHTML2 by iOS developer Bushe, which has just been released. LockHTML2 is a complete re-write of the tweak; the new version includes new features and it will be a free upgrade for all that own LockHTML already. If you don't own it yet, you can grab it from the ModMyi repository.

    LockHTML2 comes with one widget already called LS Air (above on the left), however third-party developers can create their own widgets and host them in Cydia for you to download as add-ons for LockHTML2. The widget above on the right is one of said third-party add-ons called LS Reventon by d3stroy.

    With the above two widgets having to do with weather, you値l want to point them to your location. To do this, you値l need to navigate to /var/mobile/Library/LockHTML/THEMENAME/ and find the JavaScript file associated with that widget. Once there, you can find the locale line and edit it so that it shows your Zip code. You can do this through iFile:

    The tweak isn稚 only an HTML widget tweak, but it is also a lock screen customization tweak. This is a great all-in-one solution for people trying to make their lock screen look good with the widget that they choose to use. Below are a few examples of the things you can customize on the lock screen that might compliment your widgets:

    Everything that you hide or show, and all the widget you choose to enable on the lock screen, can be configured in the Settings application under the LockHTML2 preferences pane:

    In the top section of the preferences, you値l find all of the following options:

    • Enable or disable the HTML widgets on the lock screen
    • Enable or disable a smart lock screen clock hiding feature
    • Enable or disable moving with controls
    • Choose to hide or show the widget when charging the device
    • Choose to always show the background wallpaper or not
    • Hide or show the time in the Status Bar

    In the middle section of the preferences, you値l find all of the following options:

    • Hide or show the slide or unlock bar label text
    • Hide or show the glassy slide to unlock background
    • Hide or show the slide to unlock bar
    • Hide or show the Camera Grabber
    • Enable or disable a custom slide to unlock bar
    • Enable or disable a custom slide to unlock knob

    In the bottom section of the preferences, you値l find all of the following options:

    • Customize the height of the lock screen battery
    • Hide or show the lock screen battery
    • Enable or disable always showing the lock screen battery
    • Choose the HTML widget that you want to appear on the lock screen

    You can check out the tweak in action via the video below compliments of the developer:

      That Should fix this issues
      That was it. Thank you.

      Is there a way to have the weather Location Aware? I've attempted by changing GPS to true, but haven't seen any change after a respring.

      The LS Air theme comes with the Tweak
      another theme you can find here:
      LS Reventon by ~d3stroy on deviantART

      put the theme in the LockHTML folder
      you can find the folder here:

      I hope in the future we can find a lot of themes for lockHTML in cydia (short installing)

      I had an Idea
      Can you make a Option for Animated weather Overlay
      So You can use your lockscreen theme and put the Animated weather over it. That will be nice

      Does anybody know how to turn Revention from 3 day to a 5 day forecast? I tried copying the 5 day forecast from LS Air and yeah, that didn't turn out very well. It just scrunched up a 3 day... Thanks in advance

      I had Forecast but it seems to not be working very well with iOS6. My widget was blank most of the time and I'd have to wait for it to update to show anything. In iOS5, it would at least show the info that was last fetched until it updated. Now it just shows blank most of the time, rendering it useless. I tried LockHTML out and couldn't get it to work.

      Hope there is some guy can help me!
      Why cannot it changed the days and update the rss feeds automatically unless I respring the phone?
      Now, here is Tuesday and it is still Monday (but the date is Apr. 9th). After I respring it, it is Tuesday now.
      The same as rss, when ever I respring the phone, it will update some news immediately.
      Please please help me.

      For all of you asking for themes. If you already have a lockscreen theme in winterboard you can put it in the lockhtml folder. That way you can still use your themes without having to respring every time you wanna change

      There's an option in Settings->LockHTML 2->Smart Clock Hide-> FIX: Thin Black Line. Does that work?

      If not go to cydia and download "lockscreen grey line fix".
