    Abcmsaj's Tutorial to change the padlock on your Unlock Screen to say LOCKED.


    Unfortuanetly, I can't screenshot my unlock screen because I get an error that nobody's ever seen before -.- (overexageration..) But I'll use this one as an example:

    (One of GrimmGreen's Unlock Screens)

    Notice in the top bar, the default Padlock symbol has been changed to "LOCKED."
    This is what I'll be showing you how do to.

    Step 1)

    Download the Customize v1.20 I've uploaded at the bottom of this post.
    Unzip it to somewhere on your computer you'll find.

    Step 2)

    Open this folder, and inside you will find another folder named "Customize.app1.20."
    Remove the "1.20" part from the file name.

    Step 3)

    Go into your favourite SSH client, and go to the path /Applications.
    Rename your old version of Customize to Customize.app.bak (for backup purposes)

    Step 4)

    Now, add the version of Customize that you downloaded from here into your Apps folder.
    Set permissions of everything inside the folder to 755.

    NOW RESPRING YOUR iPOD AND RECONNECT TO SSH

    Step 5)

    Navigate your way to /private/var/root/Library/Customize/LockImages.
    In here, you can put the Lock image that I've attached at the bottom of this post, or just create your own with similar dimensions. (When I get time I'll make one with my name on or something..)
    Set permissions to 755 and exit from your SSH Client.

    Step 6)

    As long as you've resprung your iPod, your new customize should now be ready for use.
    Load it up and locate the section that says "Lock Icon" (near the top)

    VOILA!

    You now have an alternative image at the top of your unlock screen!

    Have fun with this, and remember... If you want your old customize back... just swap the names around! And you can have two Customizes on the go at once.

    I never knew you had a thread tutorial for it.
    I only found it on the "Post your unlock screen" thread, and thought I'd expand it.

    Next time I'll ask if you have one

    Can you help me? I did everything right and now whenever I open up customize it sends me back to my springboard after a few seconds.
