  • Element Now Available - New Lockscreen Cydget......


    Hmm...pay close attention to this screenshot... pretty cool huh? Even has missed calls.

    We have a new Lockscreen App on the streets tonight. The highly anticipated Lockscreen App, Element, has now been released. Element, designed by Teehan+Lax and implemented by Elias Limneos, provides access to all of your most needed information right from your iPhone's lock screen. Whether it be a recently missed call or a new e-mail message, you will no longer have to drill down deep into the device's UI just to see what's new.

    You should look at the screenshot again. Its so awesome! .....

    While I haven't had a chance to test drive this personally yet..... , but I would imagine that its going to have some work to do yet, to compete with other apps such as David Ashman's LockInfo. But as time goes by, I don't doubt to see many extensions coming to this. The framework should set up a fairly simple way for developers to extend it's uses.... in the near future.... sometime...

    Did you look at it again? I swear you have to look again, its so cool....

    Element has been implemented entirely in WebCycript, and installs to your lock screen as a Cydget, making it fully compatible with all existing Apple lock screen plugins, as well as most other third-party extensions.

    Grab it live on Cydia..... or try to find it.. mwhaha

    Twitter / Jay Freeman (saurik): Element, designed by @gtee ...









    If you havent noticed already, the screenshots indicate this is an april fools joke April fools joke from @saurik, Although it appears you actually CAN download this... although the short description says "A Lame attempt at an April Fools Joke"

      so, is this real or not? i hope so because it looks bad ***..the mac themes link that was posted will not let you download the file needed to put in once you ssh.

      I just installed it, and it seems little buggy. My SMS messages come up as "null" even after I erase them. Email isn't working either. Could it be due to having two accounts?

      I've had ame235 theme for a while, including the latest beta and it does work very well with LockInfo.

      You have to configure the info.plist file to suit your needs. In case you haven't done that.

      I searched more..and found this website.

      http://www.ame235.com/ame235/2009/12...theme-release/

      Now, I have the file SSH'd into my phone..but it tells me the plugin 235_eehanlax Theme is NOT active, Enable it in: Prefferences:Lockinfo:Plugins:235_TeehanlaxTheme

      But, when I go to the Plugins section, that "plugin" is not listed.

      Can you go in a little further detail on how to do this?

      Sorry, I'm a n00b to this theme.

      I'm stuck with this..I live in St. Louis so I have no idea how to edit that...

      Also, how do I get the rest of my sections to show?

      Guess I'll just go back to plain old boring LockInfo....

      Figured it out.

      Everyone, do not do what I did and make sure you install the "LockInfo 235_Teehan+Lax" theme and not the one starting with "235..etc..etc...etc"

      I installed the one starting with "235" first and had the above issues. Installing the one starting with "LockInfo" fixed the issues..now just working on getting weather working.

      There's an update in Cydia. Seems to fix the email bug for me. Haven't noticed anything else yet. I'm starting to like this more than lockinfo, seems to work fine right out of the box and seems faster than lockinfo. I think it still need push notifications and twitter to make it perfect.

      Yep...looks like I missing a dependency..SQLite, all is good now...love the cydget..now in time it will need some updates...would be nice if the app launched when you have a pin lock on...it initiates the enter pin but only takes you tithe springboard...not the app...works with pin lock off though.

      Would like to have some settings for calendar...how many days to show and then with email, being able to mark as read would be perfect!

      Big THANKS!! to Saurik and teehan+lax!

      Only issue is now is that my texts and missed calls are from hours/days ago.

      How do I clear these? I even deleted all of them individually.

      ^+1 I had the same problem. I didn't care for it....seemed to drain my battery faster. I uninstalled it, but the battery drain still seems to be there. Other than Cydget, can someone tell me what else Element installed that I need to remove? Thx

      You have to edit the info.plist file to enable sections and to enter the correct weather location. There's two version in Cydia, look for the one with the higher version number, I actually have the latest beta.
      Enable in Winterboard, then enable in LockInfo Settings. Start there.

      When I downloaded the update it keeps freezing up the lockscreen. It's ridiculous. Boot time takes ridiculously long also. Is anyone else having this same problem? I guess I'll have to delete this for now...ugh

      Here's what I got, this definitely works and I've had it working for several months now. Read the instructions and edit the .plist file to enable sections. Good luck.

      How did you get yours to have the 5 day forecast like that? And you referred to the instructions. Where are those located at?

      @General Klinger don't bother with the teehanlax theme, Dave doesn't support it officially anymore. if you want 5-day weather in lockinfo install the "Lock Weather" plugin, it's nicer that the WeatherIcon package.

      This is what it looks like
