Hey if u ever wanted to change the arrow slider unlock button and u cloudn't find anything but premade stuff on cydia than ur on the right place.
After long time of searching for apps and mods I finally decided to do it my self.
This is genuinely my idea, I discovered it.
Here is the final result.
These two arrows are made by me. I saw this type of unlock slider in Typophone 4 which is not available for ios 3.1.3 which I have so I made a similar version my self. The background lock screen is not mine, I downloaded it and than transferred it to my iPhone by using iFile. U'll see the name of it in the pictures.
So lets get started.
These are the things u'll be needing for this.
3) Slide to unlock Killer (it contain 3 diff killer u'll see)
Now the first thing u need to do is create a button. The button above is 64x41 pixel without shadows. You can create anything u like. I saved it in .png format to keep the tranparency, n u shud too.
Files shud be named as below
bottombarknobgray.png = slide to unlock slider
bottombarknobgreen.png =slide to answer slider on iphone
bottombarknobred.png = slide to power off slider
In my case the button was same, so i made three copies n renamed them
Next thing is open up iFiles n goto
As I have installed this lock screen "LS good morning" and have applied it, I will edit this one but u can choose the one u have applied. (Links to the lock screen)
Now open whatever theme or lockscreen u hv applied.
Now click on Bundles.
and than com.apple.TelephonyUI
Now u'll see something like this. Dnt worry if u got something else, as long as u see .png files ur good to go.
Now click on that Wi-Fi button at the bottom.
This will open a black console which will have ur iPhone's IP. This IP will allow u to access ur iFile through a PC.
Insert the full IP into ur browser and u will be able to access ur iFile on ur PC.
Now goto the same directory and click choose file.
Now upload those 3 png files one by one, first choose n than hit upload, than go back n do the same.
First choose first file n click open.
Now click upload.
Than u'll see this success page just click back n repeat the process for other two files as well.
Everytime u upload a file this will pop-up.
U'll see something similar on ur iPhone. Dnt need to pay attention just showing u.
This is after uploading all three files. Click done button to return to iFiles.
When uploaded close iFiles from PC's browser as well as ur iPhone.
Now goto settings>>WinterBoard than Select Themes.
Now check the thing as below and make sure they are in same order.
Now go back to WinterBoard n click Respring.
Respring is very important bcoz its a quick restart n it refreshes and applies the modification.
And now u shud have a home screen as below with ur custom unlock slider button..
U can change the background of this lock screen as well by the method explained above..
Plz let me know wot u think coz its my very first post and also post a photo of ur lockscreen after customizing....
