    Ok in this guide i will show you how to change your slide to unlock text, your slide to cancel text, your slide to power off text, etc. on a Jailbroken iPod touch 2nd Generation

    1st: Download iPhoneBrowser from here-> http://code.google.com/p/iphonebrowser/ (or use WinSCP)

    2nd: Open up iPhoneBrowser with your iPod plugged in and navigate to "/System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/en.lproj/"

    3rd:Click on "en.lproj" and find SpringBoard.strings on the right side of iPhoneBrowser.

    4th: Right-Click on SpringBoard.strings. and click "save as" and save it to your desktop (or whereever you prefer)

    5th: Go to wherever you downloaded Springboard.strings to and right-click on it and rename it to "SpringBoard.txt"

    6th: Open up the SpringBoard.txt file in Notepad and than hit "ctrl-f" (should bring up "find"

    7th:Type in Slide and hit next it should highlight the first "Slide to ...." just keep hitting next until you find whatever you want to change ex: Slide to Cancel. Makesure it begins with <string>

    8th: After editing what you want close it and save changes. Than rename it back to SpringBoard.strings and than place it in "en.lproj"

    9th: To edit the "iPod" (next to Wi-Fi) download MakeItMine from Cydia and change the carrier name.

    Lastly: Re-Spring your iPod (can do this in BossPrefs) and you should see it.


    P.S. This is really simple and fast to do it may sound a lil complicated but its easy.

    "7th:Type in Slide and hit next it should highlight the first "Slide to ...." just keep hitting next until you find whatever you want to change ex: Slide to Cancel. Makesure it begins with <string>"

    you mean english.lproj? and what do you mean by "Make sure it begins with <string>? Ive tried to change the Slide to Unlock to like Slide to Start, for example, but the slider says AWAY_LOCK...

    Help is appreciated.
