    Iv been thinking of a slide to unlock idea, and I think it would be a good idea.

    Here it is:

    A tear to unlock

    Basically you have to take a screen shot* of your first page

    then you ssh into your iPhone/iPod and find the theme, and put it in the right folder

    Now if you turn your iPhone/iPod on, it will look normal, but the background will be a cloth look and on the bottom will say " Tear To Unlock ", and when you slide your finger across the bottom, it will follow your finger, as if your ripping it left to right.. and under the ripped fabric, is your first page! (the screen shot)

    Sound good? ( if you could understand

    Thing is, I have no clue how to achieve this :l


    Screen Shot*: push the home button + power button at the same time to take a screen shot

    Sounds, to me, like it would be awesome but I'm in the same position as you, having no clue how to achieve this but thats more/less because I know absolutely nothing about programming/creating themes (I know there are guides for this but I think all that stuff is too confusing, maybe I'm wrong but I'm more used to PSP stuff and I'm not all that "know-how" for that either, other-wise I'd help you, sorry.)

    It would result in some programming of plist and heavydata usage on first page. Not hard but I can't do it. It is doable.

    That sounds pretty cool. It is possible, just would take some work, that I'm not capable of.

    Well, apparently you know more about programming than me what w/ the fact that you just used words that I know nothing about (well, I know the WORDS but in the "programming" sense, nope, I haven't a clue what your talkin about!) being "plist" & "heavydata"! So, I'm probably as useless to you for this as my 2nd PSP was to me AFTER I fully-bricked it by trying to get the seplugins to load from the Flash0 just to conserve a lousy 5 MB on my MS Pro! If your familiar w/ the hacked PSP!

    It's too late now, this was about 2 to 3 yrs ago, back then you could only recover from a semi-brick, I had fully-bricked it and didn't have a pandora then, that's why I just kept the battery, MS & all my UMDs, I now am on my 4th PSP and now-a-days a fully-bricked PSP can be recovered, don't need a tut. for it, everything I'd need is on my free-agent external HD, god, I wish Dark Alex would come back to the PSP scene!
