    This is the first time I've heard of this problem. I don't know if it's a 4.2.1 thing or what.

    So, let's start with the basics. What kind of device do you have? iPhone 4? 3GS? And do you have access to your file system through iFile or SSH?

    LockScreen HTML is changed for 4.2.1

    It's gone over here:

    Thanks, Sanady, my theme doesn't have any HTML lockscreens, though. Just the good ol' LockBackground.png and sliders.

    i have iphone 4 IOS 4.2. i can acces my files through ssh or ifile. the only thing thats changing is the slider :0 also the lock keypad is not changing like in the screen shot of the theme.

    Hmm...

    • In WinterBoard, is "SummerBoard Mode" switched to "OFF"?
    • In Winterboard, is Neurotech HD at the top of the list?


    There may be issues with 4.2, like stuff not working. There's a warning about upgrading to 4.2 because there is no stable jailbreak for it yet.

    Officially my theme does not support 4.2+ because of the lack of stability with Mobile Substrate and 4.2.

    If you have your SHSH blobs saved you can downgrade, I believe.

    summerboard is off and the neurotech theme is on the top.
    unfortunately i dont have my SHSH blob saved so i cant downgrade

    the only thing thats changing is the slider. the wallpaper everything else is not. ive been trying to search for a solution and still cant find any.

    We'll just take it one step at a time.

    Have you tried rebooting?

    In iFile go to var/stash/themes/Neurotech [HD], do you see a file there called "LockBackground.png"?

    In iFile, tap on this image and then open in the image viewer. Now hit the little icon with the down arrow, it will then give you a little message saying, "The image got successfully added to the camera roll."

    Exit out of iFile and open your Photos app, find the lockscreen image and hit the button on the far-bottom left, then Use as Wallpaper -> Set -> Set Lock Screen.

    Tell me if that works!

    Thanks! I'll add ~iphone to all three of the lock dial pad files for the next update.

    That is the real lockscreen.

    You can find the other two by going into var/stash/themes/Neurotech Lock 2&3, and adding the two LockBackground images to your camera roll.

    If there's a better way to do it I haven't learned it yet.

    In the folder enhancer settings simply choose "transparent backgrounds" and thats exactly how I intended the theme to look

    I'll emphasize that on my main page a little better.

    Lockbackground no longer works in 4.2+. You have to set it manually. Send your image to yourself via email, then open it on your device and save it to your photo roll. Then simply open your photo app and set the image as your lock screen.
