    Ok. This would apply to ANY theme, but for example's sake, let's say I'm using "Illumine" theme. (which I am)

    On the lockscreen, where it says "Slide to Unlock", HOW DO I CHANGE THOSE WORDS?

    For example, if you use the "Silent Hill" theme, it says "SET ME FREE" instead of "Slide to Unlock". I know it will involve SSH'ing, I'm just curious which files I would have to modify.

    Anyone know?

    Go to themes/NAME/bundles/com.apple.springboard/en.iproj and open up SpringBoard.strings (if there is no file, make one).

    It should look like this, change the text accordingly or leave it blank to display nothing

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>ALARM_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    <string> I'm Up! </string>
    <key>AWAY_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    <string> unlock me! </string>
    <key>CALENDAR_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    <string> </string>
    <key>CF_USER_NOTE_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    <string> </string>
    <key>SLIDE_TO_ANSWER</key>

    <key>SLIDE_TO_CALL_BACK</key>
    <string> </string>
    <key>SLIDE_TO_CANCEL</key>
    <string> Stop Syncing! </string>
    <key>SLIDE_TO_LISTEN</key>

    Ahh, I somewhat see. Though I don't see the exact line I would need for a basic unlock, I do see the lists of other functions.

    Thank you.

    Lion,

    What did you use to read the "SpringBoard.strings" file? I ask because I used word but i can not save it as a string file.

    Edit: Do you have to have a mac?

    Edit: I figured it out N/M
