    Default Lockinfo 3.0 Theme: iOS 5 Style

    I've been expecting someone to take up this challenge, and today Spanish themer Pedro González (@ErMasLoko) released his iOS5 Style Lockinfo Theme. Download it here!



    (I love Lockinfo, but let's face it: graphic design has never been it's strong suit. Even Lockinfo dev David Ashman gave the theme a rave, saying "btw - it looks nice. I'd like to install it myself.")

    The only thing I'm having an issue with is the background for InfoShade. Ja2ed, do you have that textured look in yours, or just a flat grey?

    It's odd, but according to Stimpy (the LI dev), you just need to add the images to the Winterboard theme. Here's what he wrote when the theme developer was trying to solve the issue:

    You can set the image behind the info shade by adding an image LIInfoShadeBG.png to the com.ashman.LockInfo bundle in a winterboard theme. I haven't included that feature in the native LI3 theming yet.

    And sure enough, this is the image included (there's also an @2x version for retina displays):


    But I can't get it to show...I'm sure I'm overlooking something obvious.

    I don't use iFile but can tell you what the download contains: it's a .rar with three folders and a readme.txt. Two of the folders get dropped in the LockInfo theme library to be chosen in Settings>LockInfo>Appearance>Select Default Theme, the third gets dropped in your general theme library to be activated with Winterboard. Easy peasy.

    By the way, my problem was that I'm an *****. I was just overlooking one of my opacity settings for the InfoShade background. But if anyone else runs into it, the fix is simple: Settings>LockInfo>InfoShade>Appearance>
    I just reset all mine to the far left (fully transparent) and then adjusted my headers a bit. Looks great; this is really a great job!

    I see that you figured it out....did you the com.ashman.LockInfo folder just into winterboard themes and check it?

    No, the dev already did all that and built it into his theme, that's why I couldn't figure out what I was missing...turned out I just had to adjust the opacity in the Settings app.

    Downloaded the rar and unzipped it.
    Read the readme file and did what it said:
    -Access phone with your favorite program (I use iPhonebrowser)
    -Put the folders "iOS5 Lockscreen" and "iOS5 InfoShade" in the directory Library/LockInfo/Themes.
    -Put the folder "LockInfo iOS5.theme" in your Winterboard themes folder (Library/Themes for me)
    -In LockInfo Settings, select the theme "iOS5 LockScreen" for the Lock Screen and "iOS5 InfoShade" for
    InfoShade. (I just set the Appearance>Default Theme to iOS5 InfoShade since that's all I use.)
    -Change Appearance: Font Size to Small and Header Size to Extra Large

    After doing all that, I had my issue with the transparency thing. That I solved by going to Settings>LockInfo>InfoShade>Appearance> and moving the sliders all the way to the left.

    That's it! What exactly is the issue you're running into? It might be easier if I had a better idea of where you're getting stuck.

    sounds good. Ashman never disappoints

    in case anyone was wondering, iFile worked like a charm!

    Ashman just tweeted out that it's possible:
    "Yes, but the image is called LILockscreenBG.png."

    I'm at work--BLiNK, can you try it out? I assume you just need to create those images and drop them in the same com.ashman bundle...

    It's in the Winterboard theme folder...if memory is right it's Bundles>com.ashman.LockInfo
    (it lives with all the plugin folders)

    success!! the only thing is there was an issue with the image you provided so i had to remove the light gray bar on top and all is good now

    it appears there will be a v1.2 soon? to include bigger icons.. i am assuming we can just override the current setup?

    please update this thread when that comes available
