how can i change "Slide to unlock" to something else ?
You have to install Customize off Cydia, and in the app, the setting is under Edit System Strings
or you can modigy the file yourself if you dont want to use customize (it doesnt work well at all...)
Yeah, I only use Customize for this purpose, I use WinderBoard for all the other stuff until they update Customize.
Jack, how do you modify it yourself without Customize? I'd like to know...thanks
Yeah, install Customize and go to System Strings.
There are all System Strings and you can write there what you want.Please Register or Log in to view images

goto /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/SpringBoard.strings and copy that file over to your computer.
convert it by going to this website http://184.108.40.206/~khchung/cgi-bin/plutil.cgi or just tpye convert plist to text into google and its the link which starts with 220.127.116.11
when the file is converted (takes like 3 seconds) save it to your computer. open it with notepad. press ctrl+f (i think) to bring up the find thingy. type in slide to unlock. press search and it will find it. then just change the text to whatever you want. press search again and search for slide to unlock again coz i think there may be another one you have to change i cant remember. if thats it and your done. save the file as its original name, SpringBoard.strings and ssh it back into /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/ making a backup of the original file just in case (you can do this by just renaming the old one to SpringBoard.strings.backup
respring and your done.
Sweet!! thanks jack
no problem. this is how i did mine before customize...
