    Is there anyway to change the lock screen text at the bottom with a jailbroken 2.1 touch? Seem to remember it was in Customize (the chicken proggie) but that doesn't seem to be around now.

    You can manually edit the SpringBoard.strings file in /System/Library/Coreservices/Springboard.app/ (I think that's the location...)

    Slide to unlock.

    I get Decalgirl skins for my Touch and always used to change that to reflect the skins theme

    Ok Have found it in english info plist as Springboard.strings.

    When I edit and go to save it it saves it as a folder not a file. How do I save (and what program to edit) a strings file. Any idea?

    Ok I installed Erica's Utilities nothing new in Winterboard. Just 8 items like Saurik, Transparent bars etc but nothing re string editing. I'm on a hacked 2.1 if that makes any difference
