Is there any way to remove the top and bottom grey bars on the lock screen?

This is how I did it, but there may be other ways to achieve the same goal. For the bottom bar I created a transparent image that was 1x96 pixels and named it bottombarbkgndlock.png, then placed it in the com.apple.TelephonyUI folder. For the top bar make a copy of the previous image, but name it UILCDBackground.png and place it the UIImages folder. You can also get rid the background image on the lockscreen that appears behind the iPod controls. To do so, create a transparent image that is 1x156 pixels and name it SBLockScreenControlsLCD.png, then place it in the com.apple.springboard folder. That should make the bars on the lockscreen disappear!!

but, where is the com.apple.TelephonyUI folder?
this method also work in 3.0 fw or i have to modify artwork files?

I guess i was'n clear.
I know how to do it with winterboard.
But i upgrade to 3.0 and i don't want to install winterboard because the memory consume and lag.
So i try to theme without winterboard. And i don't know where is the bundles/com.apple.telephonyUI folder, to replace the SBLockScreenControlsLCD.png
any one knows how to do this?

I just gave you the path.

but the theme folder isnt't for winterboard only?
there is no theme/bundles/com.apple.telephonyUI in the root.
only Library\themes but is for winterboard. And i don't have installed.
I'm looking to change the images without using winterboard theme's.
theming without winterboard

Bottom bar behind slider:
Same dimensions, same file name as my first post (bottombarbkgndlock.png / 1x96px)
The new file will be placed in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUI.framework
Bar behind iPod controls on lockscreen:
Same dimension, same file name (SBLockScreenControlsLCD.png / 1x156px)
The new file will be placed in /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
The last and final image is a pain. I can tell you what you need to do, but I haven't personally done this (I haven't had any problems with WinterBoard, I try not to have a lot of themes going on at once).
The last image can be found in: /System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework
The next file you be looking for is called Other.artwork. This is were it gets fun. Inside the .artwork file are a bunch of small .png files crammed together. You'll need a program like iPhoneShop to be able to pull the .artwork file apart just to see the .png images. From there you'll have to go through each file to find the one you want to edit. The bad thing about this is that the images don't have a proper name like UILCDBackground.png when using WinterBoard. The names consist of letters and numbers. Once you find the proper file and mod it, you'll have to use that same program (iPhoneShop) to combine the .png files back into a .artwork file and it has to be named Other.artwork. Place it back where you got it and you'll be done.
I hope this helps you. Sorry if the last step is a little confusing. I tried to explain it the best way I could think of.New MacBook Pro - $1199.99
New iPhone 3Gs - $199.99
AT&T iPhone Plan - $89.99/month

recently found this great post. And i give a try
Massive list of .artwork files and what they edit on the phone

the only thing that remains to change is the lock image on my liveclok.
Still showing the standard.
