  • Remove the Lock Icon From Your Status Bar With 'No Lock Icon"


    If it has ever been an ambition of yours to have an extremely neat and tidy lock screen status bar, then a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed No Lock Icon by iOS developer rhodysurf can hide that lock icon from your status bar. The tweak is completely cosmetic, offering no breakthrough functionality.

    Hiding the lock icon can also help you make more room for status bar icons such as those that appear when you have IntelliScreenX installed and you get notifications. With the lock icon gone, things in the status bar will look spacier and less compressed into one little area. If you have your status bar content customized with a jailbreak tweak like CleanStatus, this tweak will not conflict with it.

    Since the lock icon only appears on the status bar when the iOS device is locked, the tweak is only for modifying the lock screen. No Lock Icon will not change anything on the status bar anywhere else in iOS because the lock icon doesn’t appear anywhere else in iOS.

    Whether or not you will find the tweak useful, the look of the lock screen with the little lock icon missing from the status bar doesn't look bad. It’s basically a tweak for simplifying the lock screen and making fewer elements viewable. No Lock Icon has no options to configure and you can find it in in Cydia today. If you don't like it, you can always uninstall it as it's free and there is nothing to lose by trying it.

      It is kind of weird to not even put "[Review]" in the headline, as if it's a news story.

      My 10pence worth...For all the people who knock what is written about and put on the front page,why don't you create a section,ie:- Readers Reviews, so that people who find and try tweaks they find useful,irrespective of whether its cosmetic or not,can post a review,then once a week ModMyi could choose ones with the most comments and place them on the front page....with a link to all the other reviews...democracy in action...lol

      I don't understand why you care so much about it? It's not like it's hurt you in any way. If Kyle and Cody didn't think it was front page news then they wouldn't have let Anthony post it up, but obviously it did make it. No one forces you to read the article, click on it, or comment on it. There's no use in complaining about it, if you don't like it then don't read it. It's that simple.

      The lock icon doesn't really bother me much, but I guess if your picky and don't like seeing it this would be useful to you. Thanks Anthony!

      People always get so annoyed by things that expel far less energy than their complains about those very things.

      We have a "Members written news" section, that would work there. If it took off, we could see about a special forum for it as you suggested.

      There was a winter board enabled mod doing the same thing, NoLockIcon (I think via BigBoss), that was released a couple weeks back. Nice to have options of both avenues now.

      well you know it does hurt me emotionally to see this forum get crappier by setting the bar so low for front page news. the lower they set the bar the more it feels like a lower quality forum.
      The funny thing is kyle and cody are the "editors" but they really dont read the articles. I mean sure they do sometimes but they just repost there writers articles on the news section. wanna know why i know this? cause how many times have there been multiple of the same article or multiple writers writing the same topic. but some how the readers catch it. but the "editors" didnt catch it when they read it. whenever someone says no one forces you to do anything well you know thats true. but its my feel that i love this forum and that i dont want to see it become a low quality low standard place. And you know on that note. No ones forcing you to read my comment or reply to it? so.. contradiction much?

      just sayin

      Honesty I would have just manually change he "padlock.png" to "padlock.pn".
      Icon gone.

      Better then installing yet another Mobile Sunstrate adding if ya ask me.


      PS:

      I don't know what the image is actually called. I uses "Padlock.png" as an example.


      I have seen the image within iFile before when skimming through system images so I know for a fact it can he done. All thats need to remove an icon (but still keep it there just in case) is to change .png to .pn...or basically anything bodies ".png".

      I think its called "LockStatus.png" but don't quote me on that. :/
