    Get a basic lockscreen theme, and use the images as reference. Then make your own images and what not. It really isn't hard.

    I see.

    What I really want to know is where to put what files into.

    Thanks

    That was the whole reason of downloading a lockscreen theme. They have all the lockscreen files in the right spot.

    Supposed I don't want to download a lockscreen theme. Instead, I wanna custom-made one.

    So I get all the files ready and where do I place them? That's what I wanna know.

    If you download a lockscreen theme, they have the files located in the proper directory, so all you would have to do is save your images in the proper directory a long with their proper names. Then you would SSH them in this directory:

    private/var/stash/Themes.XXXXX
    Notice the X's are random characters and are different on every iPod.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I figured where to locate the files thanks to your help, iKeablr.

    I have another question.

    How do you change the default 'Slide to Unlock' on the lockscreen? I know I can use the App Customise. However, I can't seem to edit the system strings. The app doesn't allow me to do so.

    So does anyone has any idea how to go about doing it?

    Any advice will be welcome.

    Okay download this file: SpringBoard.strings
    Then look for this
    Code:
    <key>AWAY_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    <string>     </string>
    You would put what you want in between the <string> </string>

    Now you would put this in this directory:
    YOURTHEME.theme
    -Folders
    --SpringBoard.app
    ---en.lproj
    --->SpringBoard.strings

    or

    YOURTHEME.theme
    -Bundles
    --com.apple.springboard
    ---en.lproj
    --->SpringBoard.strings
