Give Your iOS Device an Android Gingerbread-style Lock Screen With 'GingerLock'
If you’d like to trick out your lock screen with the style of Android Gingerbread’s lock screen, then you’ll find a new jailbreak tweak called GingerLock
by iOS developer iLendSoft to be right up your alley.
You can see the tweak's effects on the lock screen above. Similarly to Gingerbread, you get two sliders – one on each side of the display. The one on the left is used to unlock your device by swiping it to the right, while the one on the right is used to open the Camera application by swiping it to the left. The Camera slider can be customized so that you can open any application from the lock screen that you want to. You can configure this setting from the preferences pane in the Settings application, along with several other options:
The right slider can be set to any application you want, or you can hide it outright. You'll also get options such as enabling and disabling the tweak on demand, or choosing between the regular style or the rounded style lock screen interface. You can see the difference between the two styles below (Left: regular, Right: rounded):
The developer notes that images used in the tweak can be edited to your liking via the /Library/Application Support/GingerLock directory.
GingerLock is an interesting way to make your lock screen look less like the lock screen of stock iPhone. If you'd like to give it a try, you'll find it in Cydia's BigBoss repository for just 99˘.
