    Today I'm going to show you how to change various labels such as: Slide to unlock, power off, cancel and slide to answer.


    1. Download iFile
    2. Open iFile and press the button in the top left until theres a / in the top bar.
    3. Navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/(yourlanguage).lproj/SpringBoard.strings
    4.Open SpringBoard.strings and click edit
    5.Press the magnifying glass and one of these things depending on what you want to change:

    AWAY_LOCK_LABEL = Slide to unlock text

    DOWNLOADING_ICON_LABEL = 'Loading...' under app when downloading

    POWER_DOWN_CANCEL = Cancel under slide to power off

    POWER_DOWN_LOCK_LABEL = Slide to turn off

    RATINGS_ICON_SKIP = Skip when deleting apps

    SYNC_IN_PROGRESS = Sync in progress label

    6. Change the stuff between the " marks
    7. Save
    8. Respring

    Done! Will post pics and add more when i have time

    Actually there's an app in Cydia that will allow you to change all that stuff without having to do all that stuff. It's a lot easier and safer for those people who do not know what they are doing

    HTTP:/1.1 403 Forbidden
