    You have to install Customize off Cydia, and in the app, the setting is under Edit System Strings

    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.

    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://140.124.181.188/~khchung/cgi-bin/plutil.cgi or just tpye convert plist to text into google and its the link which starts with 140.124.181.188
    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.
