    I was wondering if there was any way to completely remove the slide to unlock feature? like just pressing the home/sleep button to unlock it?

    You will still have the slider on screen, but all you have to do is press the home button three times in rapid succession. This will unlock the device for 10 Seconds, until you open an app or press the home button once. It's called QuickUnlock and it's on the ModMyi Repo.

    As said above, for the fastest unlock just install a Tap to Unlock Theme. I personally like Slock.

    thanks for the help. do you have to tap in a certain place or anywhere? because i'd prefer the homebutton because it's easier to find quickly and without looking.

    Tap to unlock just replaces the slide to unlock with a button, it's not too hard to do it without looking, I've gotten used to using the slide to unlock without looking, lol.

    Bump,

    I have a friend who, against my advise, want to eliminate the "Slide to Unlock" screen; don't suppose there have been any changes in the last 2 years?

    NoLockScreen looks to be what is being asked for, just found it in Cydia.
