This file worked fine for renaming the slide to unlock text and some other text bits.
But after using it for a little while and getting texts i found the pop up said SMS_CLOSE and SMS_REPLY instead of Close and Reply.
I also found the same for my iPod double click pop up said CLOSE and IPOD
I looked in the SpringBoard.strings and couldnt find any key strings labeled them so im not sure.
Is there any reason for this? and how can i fix it.
For now ive gone back to using the original back up, but i would like custom text if its possible.

yeah.. i have the same error/bug with the downloaded editable file.. instead of the usual CLOSE and REPLY it gives out SMS_CLOSE and SMS_REPLY.
is this a mini bug? i have firmware 1.1.4. hope someone can help. i like changing my slide to unlock text but not the extent of having text bugs. thanks!
keep up the good work ModMyI!

The solution is:
<key>SMS_CLOSE</key> <string>Close</string> and <key>SMS_REPLY</key> <string>Reply</string>
Hope it helps...

A quick tip for you guys on windows (and probably mac). The renamed file SpringBoard.plist can be easily edited with Dreamweaver and then saved as the renamed SpringBoard.strings. Works like a charm and the formatting is the familiar XML standard

I would ban you if I was a mod for bumping a 3 month old thread. ::sigh::

Thank you very much.
I dont suppose anyone here knows how I alter the 'slide to unlock' text from within a certain winterboard theme do they?
e.g. I'm trying to use a theme called Buuf but where the 'slide to unlock' text normally is is the actual name of the theme 'Buuf'.
I'm just wondering if altering that text within a 'theme' is as easy as changing the 'standard' text as described in this thread?
I can see that the theme installs to library/themes - so will keep looking to see if I can work this out myself - but if in the meantime anyone knows that would be great!
I hope that makes sense
Ah - actually it was easier than I thought! thanks to the original methood in this thread.
the theme buuf actuall had it's own springboard.strings file
I edited that and wayhay! it was done!
thanks again to the quick tutorial in this thread.

i'm on a mac
when i rename it to .strings, the file type changes to a blue folder!
n i cant save directly cuz when it opens with OmniOutliner!

I've got no idea how a mac OS works but with windows I'd just drag a copy of it to my desktop from winscp.
Right click and open with 'dreamweaver' and there it is. Alter it and put it back over the top of the original. (making a back up before changing it)
Can you drag it to your desktop (what ever mac call it) and then browse to it via dreamweaver or an equivalent program?

Keep a backup of your original just in case!

I dun install it the way u guys do..... i hate messing around with the system folder, here's how i do it:
in any Winter Board theme there is a folder that called "Bundles" if there was none, jus create one...
inside Bundles create a folder called "com.apple.springboard"
inside that folder create 2 folder "de.lproj" and "en.lproj"
i place the "SpringBoard.strings" file in both of them, restart my springboard and there ya go

Hmm - now I'm having some sort of problem.
I thought I'd see what the winterboard option of 'Calendar Mod by Aldwin' was BUT after I didn't like it and then turned it off - the day and date normally shown on my calendar icon on the home screen springboard was MISSING!?
I searched for a solution - which was to reinstate a backup of springboard.strings
So I did this and the date came back BUT...
now, everytime I go to edit the 'slide to unlock' (as per the above)my date dissappears from the calendar again.
Do any of you clever boys know what's going on?
I even tried it the downloadable from this thread BUT every time I edit it the date dissappears.
Any ideas would be good.

maybe its yer calender icon :/
01-09-2009, 05:05 PM #38
The icon (red and white) is still there but it seems as though the 'interactive bit' the text within it is no longer functioning.

i'll try n google some more for ya!
