Winter Board Help (slanted lock)
Finally successfully JB'ed my phone. I'm trying to get the "slanted lock" as my lock screen (seen here: ).
Now I have the slanted lock on my home screen, but I can't get my own wallpaper behind it and I still have the standard lock bar on the bottom of the screen.

here is what i did as a workaround via SSH:
go into your themes and find SlantedLock.theme>Private>images>slbkg24hr
now, you're going to have to add 24 images of the same into this folder and then rename to what the existing files are named
make sure to backup, delete .. or whatever you would like to do with the originals (personally i did not like them so i got rid of them)
in the slanted lock configurations under the wallpaper set: select 24 hr
here is one of mine.. voila!

good point, Massie..
also, there is a transparent slider in Cydia that is 4.3.1 friendly and would assume it is fine with 4.3.2 as well..?
ModMyi.com | ios4.3 Transparent Slider
if you are wanting a transparent slider like my screenshot, of course

Finally what app did you use on your top bar to get rid of the time and display that you have a text and missed call and what not?
Good God, I have so much to learn!

Ok, so I've installed SBsettings, OpenSSH followed this tutorial: Jailbreak and unlock the iPhone - Installing OpenSSH, using YummyFTP, and changing the root and mobile passwords. I don't have a mac, so I didn't know what to do past the stuff on the phone. I read through this description:http://forum.tipb.com/jailbreak-apps...ing-guide.html, and found this: Jailbreak and unlock the iPhone - Make and use themes with WinterBoard. Frankly I'd like to avoid reading all 22 sections, if possible.
Can you tell me what exactly I need to look over? This seems like a lot of work just to get a background picture behind a clock haha.

It's basically the same as browsing for files and folders on your computer—you're just doing it on your phone.
What he's suggesting is that you find the Slanted Lock folder and replace the wallpapers inside of it with your own. Just be sure the new images have the same names as the old ones you're replacing.

i did all of mine with iFile, although it is easier on a PC or MAC
i saved an image to my camera roll and searched for it within iFile:
copied and pasted to:
hope all is going well.. it's definitely a learning process and trial & error is a must

Also, I have a custom slider right now. Will the slider logo stay if I use the suggested program (this one: Removing the Bottom Bar From the Lockscreen on 4.3.1). I just want to get rid of the dark, semitransparent rectangle. I'd like to keep the letters to the left of the slider if possible.
Thanks in advance!

When you put the new image in, you have to name it just like the one it replaces. In this case it sounds like you need 24 copies named EXACTLY like the 24 you deleted.
FWIW, it's almost never this much work! You just happened to pick an odd theme to start with...

yeah, probably not the best of lockscreens to choose from the get go but at least it's a good learning experience
regarding leaving the text within the slider you will need to find that theme file and search for the file that removes it. honestly, i would probably join that forum (everythingiCafe) and ask them about exactly what you are trying to do. that Europa member is very knowledgable about this very same thing

Also the phone doesn't use jpg files all images are png so you'll need to rename the files for your theme with the .png extension. If you send me a screenshot of what you're trying to do with your slider I might be able to help you.

Hi all, after much work, I have decided to abandon the slant lock theme for now. For those interested, here's what I've got going on now:
Thanks for all the help everyone!
