    Default "Slide to unlock" Un-removeable?
    Hi. This topic was made because of a question:

    How can I remove the "Slide to unlock" text.

    I have tried every app in cydia stating they will remove the text. but it doesn't work.

    I have also tried using iFile, but no luck.

    So how can I remove this annoying text?

    I think some themes using winterboard can change it.

    Yeah. If there is a theme of some sort, I'd like to know about it.

    I'm not a big theme person so not sure myself. I am sure I have seen themes where it is changed or removed though.

    As far as I am aware, I haven't encountered any theme that edits that text. I'm thinking, It might be because of iOS 4.2.1, or any other theme I have on. And I only use Elite Pro HD >.>

    I think that you have to check the tap lockscreen for that. I'm using Slantedlock.

    Well one way to do it, is with winterboard.

    I use JailbreakME Lockscreen. You can find it in cydia.
    Ones download i use iFile and search for:

    /Library/Themes/JailbreakME LS/Bundles/com.apple.springboard/en.Iproj/SpringBoard.strings

    Edit it using iFile and you will find a text that saids. "slide to jailbreak"

    Delete the text. Note but not the "" and respring.

    Make sure to active jailbreakME LS in winterboard.

    This is very similar to what I have tried. I use iFile, locate my Lockscreen app (In this case, SlantedLock) and edit the Springboard.spring, I remove the Away_Lock_Label text with the "", but nothing happens. I have tried this on well.... so many themes and such, but still, nothing.

    Alright. I will give it a shot and hope that it removes the text. I'll update this post after I have tried it ; )

    Edit #1:
    Does it alter the Lockscreen in any way, besides removing the text?

    Edit #2:
    Sorry to tell you, but it didn't work for me : ( There has to be something in the iOS 4.2

    I appreciate the help, but I do doubt that it will help : D

    Edit #1:

    Does it matter which language I am on? Anyway, I have switched to English BEFORE applying the theme, so I'm not sure >.>
