NOTE: FOR ME IT'S FRENCH.Iproj. Adapt it according to your language of course
Once you're there, open SpringBoard.strings withe notepad for example. (save it)
Then, go to the line;
<string>Slide to unlock</string>
Change the "slide to unlock" by whatever you want. Copy to your device the newly modified SpringBoard.strings.
NOTE you can change any other string
I'm sorry about this Mattewrotherham. it works perfectly with me .I live in France. Maybe there are different Setings according the country..
WHat do you mean with"i have just tried a reboot DELETING all of the files in that folder"
Have you deleted all the files which are basiclly in //DateFormats//?

i dont mean the slide to unlock string. i mean the string on the UK.plist in the date formats folder. it looks like it cannot be done. only certain languages can be edited
10-31-2008, 11:35 AM #25
If your iPhone works even without the uk.plist dateformats. Why don't you only leave the "my" fr.plist dateformat?
this is just an idea i'm not very skillfull with my iphone. I'm just explaining what i've done to remove the date from my lock screen.
10-31-2008, 11:39 AM #26

Can somebody upload the stock version of the Springboard.strings file
After following the instruction above, I've messed up the string by replacing "slide to unlock".
It's located at /System/Library/Coreservices/Springboard/English
thanks in advance

unzip this file ans you will find springboard.strings (uk)
You have to modify the string and not the key
Modify here Snooze

So I'm a little confused. Can this be done on the 3G or not? In the U.S.

Thanx to Bister!
Hello Again All,
I Finally found the way to erase the date. Even for People In the Uk, USA (if the Iphone is in English). Special Thank to my Friend Bister!
To do that, dowload the uk.rar. Unzip it and you sould find a uk.plist
Go to /System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework/DateFormats/
There, copy uk.Plist to your device.
restart your device... you're done! Congratulations!
NOTES: -don't forget to save and keep the original uk.plist
- Do reset the date on your lock screen, simply delete the uk.plist and reset the original one!
Thanx angain to Bister(from www.iphon.fr)

How about for the clock Kevin?
11-07-2008, 01:19 PM #35
Sorry I have no idea for the clock iGreenBerg!
Maybe Someone else will find this.
11-07-2008, 01:20 PM #36
Well the date method you posted didn't work for me either.
11-07-2008, 01:36 PM #37
You mean the you still see that date after rebooting your device?
11-07-2008, 01:43 PM #38
Yep, sure do.
11-07-2008, 04:18 PM #39
I guess you made a mistake IgreenBerg check once more all the steps.
Anyway, I Found a french tutorial( once again by Bister) to erase the Clock on the lock screen.
To erase the clock, download the :transparentclock.rar
You shall find a LockClock.ttf.
Then, go to the Root of your device, to /System/Library/Fonts/Cache/.
Don't forget to save the original LockClock.ttf on your computer.
there, just copy the new LockClock.ttf ( it's a transparent font) and delete the other LockClock.ttf.
Restart your device and that's it.
Thanx To Bister iPhone, iPhone 3G et iPod Touch : blog iPhon.fr

The date method is simply not working for me.
Tried it again this morning.
I'm not missing a step.
