    I'm not sure if you are on Mac or Windows, but here is what to do on Mac (might be the same if not similar on Windows)

    -Get the Springboard.strings file onto your desktop
    -make a back up of the original file
    -change one of the file's extension to .plist (ie Springboard.plist)
    -open the file in a Property List editor (Google to find one if you don't have an App that can read/edit .plist files)
    -find the text you want to change(usually the text on the RIGHT, and should look Just like the way it appears on your iPhone) (pretty self explanatory once you are looking at it)
    -edit to desired text
    -save the .plist file
    -change the extension back to .strings)
    -place back on iPhone
    -respring
    - It should now show whatever text you input.
    - Enjoy

    Hopefully everything goes well for you. PM me if you can't get it to work and if all else fails I can edit it for you and send it back to you. Just let me know

    Default How do I go about if the default language isn't English
    Edit: Nevermind! I found it at:
    http://www.modmyi.com/forums/file-mo...-fw-2-1-a.html



    Based on this post:
    http://www.modmyi.com/forums/winterb...xt-change.html

    how do I go about if the language is not english?

    in: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    I have the following folders:
    English.lproj (with a capital E)

    and

    no.lproj which is the language i use (Norwegian)

    in no.lprov are the following files
    infoPlist.strings
    LocalizedApplicatoinNames.strings
    Springboard.strings
    USSD.strings

    I tried the following

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>AWAY_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>POWER_DOWN_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>SLIDE_TO_ANSWER</key>
    <string></string>
    </dict>
    </plist>

    Becasue I don't want any text at all

    And copied the Slider Text.theme into the Themes.xxxxxx folder:

    /Slider Text.theme/Bundles/com.apple.springboard/no.lproj/Springboard.strings

    That may work but for me, I used iUtilities and removed the text that way. Go to youtube and look for video tutorial on how to use iUtilities. Now, I dont know if Customize still works for 2.2.1 but when my phone was running 2.1, I used Customize and used the edit strings and that worked for me.

    Customize doesn't work on 2.2.1, or well didn't until yesterday. Apparently there's a version floating around that works, but it's not on Cydia yet so keep an eye out.

    No the version that is floating around now is the same as it was before and it still works for editing system strings... it takes a little ssh work but it does work

    unfortunately it is the only way to actually blank out the string in 2.2.1

    using a .strings file does not work, it merely moves it off to the right


    if you want customize working get it in cydia then ssh into var/mobile/library/customize2

    download this ==>Send big files the easy way. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!

    open that folder and drag and drop the folders inside there into customize2 on your phone (replace)

    now put your phone in airplane mode and open up customize

    now if you want to use it with themes just insert them manually
