    Default Hide everything on "Slide to Unlock" screen
    The title says it all. I want to hide the "clock + date" on top and the "slider + text" on the bottom.

    Basically the remain is just the wallpaper and you do the unlock by sliding your finger where the hidden slider was.

    First off, this isn't a New Skin / Theme so I'm not sure why you posted this here.

    Secondly, you can get rid of the stuff on the bottom but as far as the time and date go...not going to happen, at least for a while because no one can figure out how.

    This is for 1.1.4

    Hide the background of clock & date
    Use attached file to replace "Other.artwork" in System/Library/Frameworks/UIKitframework
    (Make backup of your original "Other.artwork"!!!)


    Hide the clock
    Use attached file to replace System/Library/Fonts/Cache/LockClock.ttf
    (Make backup of your original "LockClock.ttf"!!!)


    Hide the date (does not seem to work on English, i.e.non localized iPhones; however works on some localized (e.g. Russian) iPhones.
    Locate file System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework/DateFormats/en.plist and open with an editor like Notepad++
    (Make backup of the original "en.plist"!!!)

    Find string:

    <key>UIWeekdayNoYearDateFormat</key>
    <string>EEEE, d MMMM</string>

    Change to:

    <key>UIWeekdayNoYearDateFormat</key>
    <string></string>


    Hide slider and its background
    Go to System/Library/Frameworks/TelephonyUI.framework and delete files "bottombarkgndlock.png" and "bottombarknobgray.png"
    (Make backup of these files BEFORE DELETING!!!)


    Hide "Slide to Unlock" text
    Locate file "SpringBoard.strings" in System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/ and edit using Notepad++ or if it doesn't show correctly convert the file here: Convert Apple Property list from binary to text XML
    (Make backup before editing/converting)

    Find string:

    <key>AWAY_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    <string>slide to unlock</string>

    Change to:

    <key>AWAY_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    <string></string>


    Hide the Slider button
    Go to System/Library/Frameworks/TelephonyUI.framework/ and delete the file "bottombarknobgray.png"
    (Make backup before deleting!!!)


    Please respond if this helps and if somebody knows other ways to hide the DATE on the lockscreen on English iPhones. The method above with does NOT work for me (English, 1.1.4, I tried to edit ALL .plist files in corresponding directory but without success)

    I don't know if this works for 1.1.2. I guess you just have to try it.

    U can do it but the safest way i suggest is to jus make the files transparent instead of deleting them all together.... if you've got photoshop or any photo editing program all you gotta do is create a blank file the same dimensions as the ones in the fone and save them accordingly....

    Reason y i didnt delete mine is becuz i didnt want the phone to bug out for no reason......

    What about making time on the lock screen in HH:MM:SS format? Make it show seconds as well.

    Just for the record I have 2.0 jailbreak. I just edited the springboard.strings using that technique and it works like a charm. I used cydia to not have anything else on the bottom portion of the locked screen, so there isnt anything there. and i havent had any problems yet.

    Also, by any chance does anyone know how to remove the labels off of all the icons on the home screen?

    use SMBPrefs to hide icon labels. you can download it off the cydia app.

    bottombarbkgndlock

    it it doesn't work, delete bottombarbkgnd also..

    don't forget to make a backup first of all the files before deletion and ofcourse remember the path/location of these files..
