Thread: Custom lock screen

  1. #1
    Default Custom lock screen
    If anyone could please answer these questions I would greatly appreciate it =/


    1st Does anyone know how to remove the reflection on the bottom doc images? (image shown below)






    2nd Also how to make this top info bar transparent so the background image shows through it. (image shown below)





    3rd Now the hard stuff... Basically I'm trying to customize my ipod touch lock screen. I have looked everywhere and can't figure it out. I have my ipod set up through my ftp, I just cant find the images to overwrite.


    Here is an example of what I'm trying to do, but I'll be using my own images, and design of coarse.



    ^^ example of what I'm trying to do on my lock screen.


    I figured how to change the slide button, also removed the slider text, and add a background. What I cant figure out, is how to change the following: (image shown below):





    Sorry if this isn't posted in the correct spot, or if this has already been answered. =/

    I'll do my best..Im sure if something is wrong I'll be quickly corrected.
    OK
    1. I believe that reflection is automatically added just like the (large) battery. no matter which one u use it adds a reflection.
    b.Try to d/l another dock from here and see if it adds it possibly a tranparent dock of some sort.

    2. Sorry dont know. I know how to change the color maye if u alter the color u can make it transparent. The image names are FSO_BG.png & FST_BG.png (which are located at System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app)

    3.Now the top bar (I beleive) is actually a part of his wallpaper because we here havent figured out just yet how to alter or change the image behind the time & date (or at least I havent).

    The bottom is DeviceLockBottomBarBackground.png and its in the same spot^ I might be missing some things info here but im kinda rushing, but at least it can get u started.

    Hope I was of some help. Good Luck!

    Hello,

    For the bottom image, it's easy, you only have to replace that file : bottombarbkgndlock.png (in /System/Library/Frameworks/TelephonyUI.framework/).
    Like this :

    or

    For the Top image, I haven't find yet...I'm not sure it's possible...

    Alright thnx for the help guys. I got the lock screen to work. Aside from getting that black very top bar to be transparent. If anyone has or can figure it out please let me know.

    I've also seen some themes for the ipod touch that dont have reflections on the dock images. If anyone can figure out how to remove the reflection please let me know.

    Thanks again for all the help. I'll be sure to post my new lock screen after I design it.

    to have a switch to remove the reflect effect :

    Modify the file "General.plist" which is in /Applications/Preferences.app

    Add :
    <dict>
    <key>cell</key>
    <string>PSGroupCell</string>
    </dict>
    <dict>
    <key>cell</key>
    <string>PSSwitchCell</string>
    <key>default</key>
    <false/>
    <key>defaults</key>
    <string>com.apple.springboard</string>
    <key>key</key>
    <string>SBUseNewDock</string>
    <key>label</key>
    <string>iPod Touch Dock</string>
    </dict>
    <dict>
    <key>cell</key>
    <string>PSGroupCell</string>
    <key>isStaticText</key>
    <true/>
    </dict>
    <dict>
    <key>cell</key>
    <string>PSTitleValueCell</string>
    <key>label</key>
    <string>iPod Touch Dock always show icon reflections beneath their respective dock icons.

    When off, dock icons will be displayed according to default setup.</string>
    </dict>

    And finish by :

    </array>
    <key>title</key>
    <string>General</string>
    </dict>
    </plist>

    Don't forget to restart the SpringBoard.

    You will have a switch in general settings that allow you to have or not the reflect effect :

    K so I got everything to work so far woooo!




    Ok last question lol

    if you look on this image you will see the top info bar is transparent.



    ^^ ^^

    does anyone know how to do that? I have tried all I know, and I can't even figure out how to change the color lol.

    But I mainly would like to just make it transparent like shown on that above image.

    To turn reflection off in the Dock, open up:

    /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist

    And put these lines in the code:

    <key>SBUseNewDock</key>
    <integer>0</integer>

    This will turn off reflections.

    To make the top bar transparent, requires a tiny bit more effort. Make a transparent top bar PNG (you can use the existing theme one as a template) and replace the existing one. Then make sure you have "Theme Status Bar" turned ON in SMBPrefs. If you wish, I can make one, but can't do it til I get home tonight.

    Yeah that would be great. After you make it I just need to know where to put it.

    I'll check back here tonight to see if you replied back with it.

    thnx a bunch!

    I am actually very interested if this actually works. Hmmm. Would be nice to be able to turn auto reflections on and off on the go.
