  • LockScreen Tricks with LockDockBar and QuickUnlock
    Both released tonight via the MMi Cydia repo LockDockBar and QuickUnlock provide some extra features and functionality to your iPhone's lockscreen.



    LockDockBar

    This utility puts your Phone, Mail, SMS, and Calendar apps on your lock screen above slide to unlock for quick and easy access. Just a quick install from Cydia and you can access all four of the applications mentioned above with a quick finger tap from the lockscreen. No slide to unlocked needed.

    QuickUnlock

    QuickUnlock provides more options for locking/unlocking your iPhone. If your phone is locked simply hit the home button three times to unlock temporarily. After you hit the home button three times you'll be able to browse around your home screen for 10 seconds. If you do not choose an app or hit the home button again during those ten seconds your phone will re-lock automatically.

      this app is awesome. i always think my phone is vibrating and now i can just check without unlocking and clicking home to get it. makes life easier. a setting pref would be nice and if it didnt take so long from the time u hit the icon to get to the text it would be perfect. overall its very useful for me so thanks to the creators.

      This Lockbar is useless for ipod and i have actually seen it cause you to not be able to lock your ipod without springboard crashing and having to run springboard in safe mode.

      go to cydia and it's the "GlassOrb" theme. SSH it and choose the theme. Open it and copy the "Dock" file to your theme. You must have "5 icon dock" installed. Enjoy...

      Btw, can someone please tell me if after installing LockDockBar, you have to restart springboard, ie you click "Restart SpringBoard" in Cydia after installing or when you push home Springboard automatically restarts?
      I'm asking because if I restart Springboard, my iPhone goes "crazy", the spinning circle comes up 3 times, iPhone reboots automatically and then spinning circle again comes up twice on the "Enter Passcode" screen, iPhone restarts itself and 70% of the time it will go into "Safe Mode", something about MobileSubstrate, *sighs*.

      Thanks!
      The theme is called "GlassOrb" get it from Cydia. SSH to your phone and open that theme. Copy the dock file to your theme. Must have "5 icon dock installed" Enjoy...

      Outside of that, this utility is awesome and works great!!! But unfortunately I cant use it unless the icon issue is addressed, because my custom icons look stupid in this arrangement.
      ditto lol and anyone know how we can take a snap shot of our lockscreen? I used to have it on 1.1.4 but forgot

      Hey, I did exactly what u are wondering about today for my lockscreen with lockdockbar. I didn't like the dock around the icons, or the dimmed framing around the top of the screen (where the time is).

      I just modded a lockscreen theme I DL'd from Cydia, called tokidoki lockscreen. Follow these steps:

      1)DL tokidoki lockscreen from Cydia
      2) SSH into phone and go to /Library/Themes/tokidoki lockscreen.theme
      3) delete the LockBackground.png file.
      4) click on bundles, then com.apple.TelephonyUI
      5) delete bottombarknobgray.png
      6) use winterboard to select the tokidoki theme.
      7) respring and you should now have a nice, clean lockscreen, with only your wallpaper, time, lockdockbar icons and slide to unlock visible.

      Hope I described this properly. GL!

      Thanks for this! I tried it and it worked great.

      One thing though, I tried to replace the original LockBackground.png with a new file that I renamed to the same name.
      Then I tried to put back the original and it didn't work either. Any ideas?

      [edit]I just realized the wallpaper shows up when its not conncted to the charger. Can this be changed? [edit]

      Thanks again.

      Any updates on this? I just installed it and its great. Just needs the ability to change what apps are used. I use irealsms and having the stock text.app is kind of useless. Also being able to add five apps or more or less wold be great too and changing the location of the apps would be great. I removed the slide to unlock and the time and date so moving them to ether location would be sweet!

      Anyone know how I can change the apps myself? The only thing I can find related to lockdock is the mobilesubstrae plug in, anyone know where the plist is or anything I can try to change?

      Love the app! please continue to work on it!
