    i tried to change my lockscreen text recently. i did convert. i did search the "slide to unlock" text. i properly changed it to my custom text. i converted back and ssh'd it back into my ipod with the correct name and file. yet it does not work. did i do something wrong?

    Did you respring?

    ...and you don't need to convert plists to binary again to make them work - that'll make future changes easier. No harm in it either way.

    Just use winterboard if you're not already. Download it via Cydia and do the following :
    SSH into your iPod or iphone, or use iphoneBrowser or something and goto /Library/Themes/ and make a new folder call it 'test' for now, inside the new folder make these directories.
    Bundles/com.apple.springboard/en.lproj
    Open wordpad or a text editor and write "AWAY_LOCK_LABEL" = "make it ra1n...";
    (change make it ra1n to whatever you want.) then save it as Springboard.strings and put it in the en.lproj directory. load up winterboard and you should see a new option called test. click test and exit out of winterboard. It will now reboot and your lock screen will say make it ra1n or whatever you put it to. Simple

    yer also make sure you put "test" above any active theme with a springboard.strings file otherwise it will use the one in the other theme and wont use the one in the "test" directory....kind of a nooby mistake but still
