Thread: Tap to Unlock!

  1. #1
    Default Tap to Unlock!
    Hi,

    I am wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to have an invisible "Tap to unlock" on the lockscreen....

    I had downloaded it from customize on my 1.1.4 FW but now that I updated to 2.o, I cant seem to find one that works.

    any knowledge or help would be greatly appreciated.

    EDIT: forgot to add.... I have tried searching through "all themes" in customize and applied "transparent" and "transparenttap" (which even says was ported to 2.o) but still does not seem to work.... Is this possible with the new 2.o?????

    This is very easy to do. The trick is to increase the width of the "slide to unlock" button so that it has no place to slide. Once it's that size, a simple tap will work. It's also possible to use smaller widths to make it so the slider doesn't have to travel nearly as far. If you make both the button and background transparent, they'll still work, but they'll be invisible. The paths are:

    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUI.framework/bottombarbkgndlock.png

    and

    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUI.framework/bottombarknobgray.png

    You'll also need to edit the SpringBoard strings so that it doesn't put the string "slide to unlock" up.

    It's located here:

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/SpringBoard.strings

    Here's the art I'm using, which results in the screen saying "tap to unlock". If you want it to have no text, just use the bottombarbkgndlock.png for the bottombarknobgray.png as well.

    How would it work if I used those transparent pictures, but for the text just edited the system string using Customize?

    Just fine, if you edited the "slide to unlock" text out completely or replaced it with a space, but you can't enter something like "tap to unlock" because the system uses the button size to determine the text placement.

    is there a way to keep the slide function to unlock the phone, but have it transparent?

    Basically I want to remove the text, icon and background, but still have to slide my finger to unlock the phone instead of just tapping.
