    As stated in the title, I would like to change the text displayed when you first push the home button to turn on the iPod. I am sure this text is stored as a string in some file, but I have no idea which file it is in.
    Thanks in advance! :D

    Springboard.string the original can be found in CoreServices/English.lproj. just copy to your computer to edit it. then put it in Bundles/com.apple.springboard/English.lproj in your theme

    I tried changing a few strings in SpringBoard.strings, but I cannot seem to figure out :confused: which one points to the "Enter Passcode" text that appears as you are typing in your passcode to turn on your iPod. Could someone tell me exactly which string to edit? :)
    Thanks! :D

    here dude
    "AWAY_LOCK_LABEL" = "";
    "SLIDE_TO_CANCEL" = "";
    "SYNC_IN_PROGRESS" = "";
    "POWER_DOWN_LOCK_LABEL" = "";
    "ENTER_PASSCODE" = "";
    I dont know if you are making a theme but if you are copy and paste this in too your Springboard.strings file just put something in to the " " first thats what will display

    Thanks! I got the "Enter Passcode" text to change. I have one more question. Is there an app I can download (either from the App Store or Cydia) that would allow me to edit SpringBoard.strings directly from my iPod?
