    ^^ Are you serious? This bloke is looking to add seconds to the time, as in HH:MM:SS. That would most likely need to be a MS extension. OR you could install the clock hide package and lockinfo via David Ashman's repo, and then create a look-alike lockscreen clock via javascript. Any of which will have effects on battery life... Especially the lockinfo, as it will run even when the phone is in sleep mode. Good luck! :-P
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

    This guy must be in the military, why not buy a watch,,,, be a little bit easier than looking at your iPhone to see what the seconds are.

    try a html code with LockBackground.html and use it with Winterboard

    I had found something but its in french

    EDIT:
    Well I got it to work 99% lol...[SSH is required]
    however it seems the seconds just keep adding on to itself leaving a lil mess of white font (ex/:ss will be added ontop of the previous :ss without deleting/fading it first)

    However, if you would like I can still post what I did and maybe someone can just edit the coding and then we can have a working seconds lockscreen!
    (as I said its in french which to us it would matter but to the iphone it doesnt..it will translate to english or w/e language u use)

    Default Alright..!
    so like I said its in french..though editable to an extent
    But without further-ado...here are the steps:

    1) SSH into phone and copy/backup the file LockClock.ttf
    (System/Library/Fonts/Cache/LockClock.ttf)

    2) Now replace it with the attached "LockClock" file so that it hide the original time

    3) Add the folder, "LockscreenClock.theme" to
    (var/stash/Themes)

    4) As SOON as you have done this, hard-reset your phone
    (hold onto power till slide to turn off appears then turn it off and on again)

    Now just go into Winterboard and apply the theme..LockscreenClock.theme

    **as I said their is a type of error in the coding which needs to be fixed, but I am wrking on a better one (creating new 1!)

    So, I take nobody knows where the Lock screen Clock file is on the iPhone. I know how to make it invisible but that is not what I want .... I'd like to have the seconds on the Lock screen. Thanks for the help.

    i can give you the files for my clock and it'll work without adding on the seconds but there is one problem if you care about the battery charging showing on the lockscreen when it's charging then you are out of luck cause it wont show but if you don't care i can give you my clock

    yeah i'd rather have a clock clock. But i forgot the phone doesn't even do that stock, and it would be crazy trying to do that. I was confusing my phone, with my car's navi lol
