    Status Notifier and Winterboard are required

    Credit goes to the following:

    - Aldwin - creator of tweak
    - Zetetic Apparatchik - for the weather widget
    - Productred - for the one week forecast version of the weather widget
    - Nuclear potato - i made a background image similar to the one in his slock theme.

    Miscellaneous Features:

    ~ Includes a LCD clock for lockscreen (with seconds and am/pm indicator)
    ~ Supports status notifiers 0.2.10, adds support to the following events:
    * Unread Email
    * Missed call/voicemail
    * Calendar alerts - it's there but I still have no idea on how to invoke this
    * SMS: MobileSMS / iRealSMS / biteSMS
    * MMS: SwirlyMMS
    * IM: BeejiveIM / Fring / Palringo
    * RSS: NetNewsWire
    * Silent mode (ringer off)

    IMPORTANT NOTES!

    NOTE: (status notifier) make sure you update status notifier to get these feature, you can find more info about this here.

    NOTE: (LCD Clock)to make the LCD time work, you need to install a blank font for the lockscreen,

    Download this file here.
    and put it in /System/Library/Fonts/Cache/.

    (Don't forget to backup the old LockClock.ttf, just in case)

    ----------------------------------

    INSTALLATION

    To install, just SSH (or through USB) into your iPod/iPhone and navigate to /Library/Themes. Just extract the zip file you downloaded and paste the folder into the "themes" directory. (Basically its the same way as installing a theme manually).

    Just drop it in the Themes folder while in SSH.



    I can't believe this wasn't posted earlier. IPTF is not on the ball!

    Two Questions.

    1. In the LCD style time display is it possible to change the color of the font? Like to something brighter or darker due to the backgrounds behind them?

    2. How do you change the location the weather is displayed from?

    1. IDK.

    2. Go to the Private, then open up the configure me file and then look for location, and add your city and state.


    Not that I noticed. It's not like you would be on your lock screen all day you know.
