    wikedfx is gonna make a complete and understandable tutorial in english in a few days.
    i mped him and this method works perfecty for him

    Ok so here is the guide on how to change the color of your lockclock on the lock screen. this will be how to change the color and font. Very big thank to Kevin. fr, he found the site in French which made all this possible. So sit back and enjoy.

    Here is the site translated if anyone wants to do this on your own.

    Translated version of http://www.iphonefr.com/viewtopic.php?id=26279

    Ok so on that site the CGFontCache file does not work right. So I have put everything you will need into the rar file linked at the bottom of the page.

    So first thing is you need to do is replace the standard lockclock.ttf font in your cache folder with the one I have in this .rar file. system/library/fonts/cache

    Then open CGFontCache.plist with wordpad or other editor. scroll down until you get past where all the fonts are listed in mycache folder. you will see the new font. change every part of the font to the name of whatever font you are using. look at pic. then save &
    go to system/library/fonts and replace the CGFontCache.plist file.

    [IMG][/IMG]


    Then while your there, go into the font cache folder and create a folder called MyFonts.
    Place any custom fonts in there you want. leave them the name they are created with but make sure they are spelled correctly and the .ttf is lowercase.

    I have provided 2 LockBackground.html files, 1 with seconds and 1 w/out.
    Now open the LockBackground.html file with wordpad or other editor and scroll down until you see font family and font color. Change the font name in font family to the same one as before that you will be using. Change the color, html color guides are on google. Next line down is size of your clock in pixels. You can change this also. Save,
    Then go to Private/VAR/stash/themes and create a folder there called LockClock couleur_ In this folder you will place the LockBackground.html file.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Here is an Update on changing the time to 12 hours. Very big thanks to opusandbill for posting this.



    After you finish everything, go into winterboard and select the file LockClock couleur_
    And don't forget to give Kevin.fr, opusandbill, and myself a thanks for this.

    I have tried lots of things to make it 12 hr but nothing works. The only thing I can think of is that because it's a file in French that commands time, it uses France as the location making it 24 hr time.

    i'm not sure if I included the normal lockclock.ttf file in my zip file or not. But if you click on my link to the translated French page about half way down he posted a link to download his lockclock file. The one he posted is edited with no numbers. You must use this one to replace your current lockclock so it makes the standard white time dissapear. I will also make a new zip file with it when I get home and edit the post with better instructions.

    can you make a lockclock.tff that only displays the date?

    to swich date from 24 hours format to 12 hours format,

    go to setting then general settings and then hour and date.

    there you may change the date format to 12 hours.

    thanks, but that doesn't work. It's because of the javascript. I have been messing with it all morning but no success yet. The code is set in general get hours which means 24 hours. You have to add in and specify the values, ie: if current hour is 12 then hour=12
    And if current hour>12 then hour=0-12
    This is not the exact code obviously but it's an example.
    But you have to convert it to French so it will flow smoothly.

    Default set for 12 hour
    if you want to have your clock set in 12 hour, edit the LockBackground.html of which ever file you want to use to look like this.



    you only need to change the part that is circled.

    the only problem I have now is I can not get the font to change.

    there are several places in the .plist file. Make sure you change all in 1,2,3,4
    In my example on page 1 I only show the first 3 sections changed. There is a 4th one too.

    I know the guide is to make a selection in winterboard, but i found it easier to put the background.html file in the theme itself instead. That way I can make different font's and colors with every theme. Also make sure the font has original name, and lower case .ttf and it's in your my fonts folder. then refer to the 2 pics i posted about the .plist change font1, font2, font3, &font 4 just look at the pic very close. let me know if you need any more help.
