'LockHTML2' Lets You Put Dynamic HTML Widgets on the Lock Screen and More
If you’ve ever used LockHTML in the past, then you’ll be delighted to hear about LockHTML2 by iOS developer Bushe, which has just been released. LockHTML2 is a complete re-write of the tweak; the new version includes new features and it will be a free upgrade for all that own LockHTML already. If you don't own it yet, you can grab it from the ModMyi repository.
LockHTML2 comes with one widget already called LS Air (above on the left), however third-party developers can create their own widgets and host them in Cydia for you to download as add-ons for LockHTML2. The widget above on the right is one of said third-party add-ons called LS Reventon by d3stroy.
The tweak isn’t only an HTML widget tweak, but it is also a lock screen customization tweak. This is a great all-in-one solution for people trying to make their lock screen look good with the widget that they choose to use. Below are a few examples of the things you can customize on the lock screen that might compliment your widgets:
Everything that you hide or show, and all the widget you choose to enable on the lock screen, can be configured in the Settings application under the LockHTML2 preferences pane:
In the top section of the preferences, you’ll find all of the following options:
- Enable or disable the HTML widgets on the lock screen
- Enable or disable a smart lock screen clock hiding feature
- Enable or disable moving with controls
- Choose to hide or show the widget when charging the device
- Choose to always show the background wallpaper or not
- Hide or show the time in the Status Bar
In the middle section of the preferences, you’ll find all of the following options:
- Hide or show the slide or unlock bar label text
- Hide or show the glassy slide to unlock background
- Hide or show the slide to unlock bar
- Hide or show the Camera Grabber
- Enable or disable a custom slide to unlock bar
- Enable or disable a custom slide to unlock knob
In the bottom section of the preferences, you’ll find all of the following options:
- Customize the height of the lock screen battery
- Hide or show the lock screen battery
- Enable or disable always showing the lock screen battery
- Choose the HTML widget that you want to appear on the lock screen
You can check out the tweak in action via the video below compliments of the developer:

If you love lock screen widgets, this tweak is for you. You’ll find LockHTML2 in Cydia’s ModMyi repository for just 99¢; however, it’s a free upgrade if you own LockHTML already.

Mine just shows 'no connection', no weather just the time and a translucent box with days of the week.

This is bad ***! The creator of lockinfo should learn how to make a video like this for his byzantine menu setup system.
I don't see an ls reventon, I see reventon lockscreen but it's by someone else.

I was able to find the LS Revention Theme. It installed under Winterboard. If I chose the theme in Winterboard, it will work, but it has an orange background that I cannot change. I also cannot change the language or my location. For some reason, it is not showing as a theme in LockHTML2 (only the LS Air is showing). That is why I cannot find the file in iFile to make the required changes.
How do I link LS Revention to LockHTML2??

the temp must be in lower case.... even though the notes show upper case. This got me too... once I switched F to f, everything worked fine.

I don't think redbike2001 has the right one. I saw that one as well but it IS NOT an HTML LS theme. That's why all you see is Air and that its in winterboard.
I love love my LockHTML2. It's clean sharp and all you have to do is change your LS wallpaper. So some of these comments just are not making any sence.
MODMI could you PLEASE direct us as to where we can get LS Reventon?? Thank you ;-)
