Thread: How to change the iPhone text on the Slider?

  1. #21

    Turtle,
    Use the file above from JedixJarf and upload it to the folder. This will revert back to the original.

    However, I am having trouble using WordPad. I changed the extension to plist, but it still looks like hieroglyphics. I found "slide to unlock" and changed it, but it wasn't my text. It showed "away_Lock..." I thinkit was a default message if the original is missing. I know this is an editing problem, can anyone tell me why Word Pad is not reading it correctly?

    No worries. I followed my own advice. It seems when I downloaded the file from this website, it worked. When I downloaded from my iPhone, it didn't. Don't know why, but problem solved.

    get a program called iphonebrowser . This will allow you to browse the files on your phone.

    Yeah, I wonder too which program all the PC users can use instead of BBedit?!

    Thx.

    Just use Customize. It's about 50 times easier, and 90 times faster.

    YEah thanks...90 times faster...guys use customize to change the slide to unlock to whatever name you want...open Customize and go to SpringBoard Strings and scroll down to the last one and there you just click in it and change the text and that can be don to any of the other ones....

    Cheers!

    i cannot find this text, im running 1.1.2

    For windows users... Change the extension from plist to strings, open with Microsoft Word, edit the text you like, save the file, change the extension back to plist, upload using iBrikr...

    This should work. ChEeRs

    Default Editor for windows
    If you are using windows, use a property list editor like this one

    http://download.cazisoft.com/pledit.zip

    Then open up the springboard.strings file. It will display it like an XML file. Much easier to edit

    Ok, I used the posted file, modded what I needed to and installed the file via Disk Aid and now my calendar doesn't show the day on it. I can put the bone stock file (that I copied off the phone) back into it and everything is fine. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    I'm in the same predicament. Let me know if you come up with a fix for this? This is the only problem i'm having!

    I use CuteFTP PRO and I can go to /Library/Themes/Your.theme/bundles/com.apple.springboard/eng.lp/springboard.strings

    I can right click on the file and edit it and change what it says.
