    In this tutorial I will teach you how to change the text where it would normally say:

    "Slide To Unlock"
    "Sync In Progress"
    "Enter Passcode"
    "Slide To Power Off"
    "Slide To Cancel"


    What u need is:
    • Winterboard (install it in Cydia)
    • WinScp

    1. Open WinScp
    2. Click 3 times on Back (the arrow standing too left)
    3. Then go to Library, Themes
    4. If u don’t have a theme folder yet, press F7 and type a random name
    If u have a theme, click on that folder
    5. Press F7 when u are in folder and call the folder: Bundles
    6. Make a new folder call it: com.apple.springboard
    7. Inside that folder create a folder called: en.lproj but watch out!!! If your language on you iPod/iPhone isn’t English (en) it has another name. Dutch=nl, German=de etc.
    (than it’s nl.lproj or de.lproj)
    8. Inside that folder click F7 and type: SpringBoard.strings
    9. Open it and than type:

    "AWAY_LOCK_LABEL" = "enter text here";
    "SYNC_IN_PROGRESS" = "enter text here";
    "ENTER_PASSCODE" = "enter text here";
    "POWER_DOWN_LOCK_LABEL" = "enter text here";
    "SLIDE_TO_CANCEL" = "enter text here";

    10. On the place of enter text here, type the text you want. BUT don’t remove any symbols, only the letters.
    11. Restart your iPod/iPhone and you’re done!!

    Nice Tutorial.

    You might want to have posted it here, though.

    Ask a Mod to move it.
