    step 1
    Requirements

    • Jailbroken iPod Touch or iPhone (don't know about iPad though. I think this will work still but idk)

    • SSH capabilities

    step 2
    Navigate to System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/English.lproj/Springboard.strings



    step 3
    Find the away_lock_label
    or just search in ifile: slide to unlock.
    Change it to whatever you want to and YOU'RE DONE

    NOTE: some themes make u go to Library/Themes/"your theme"/Bundles/com.springboard.app/en.lproj and you have to change it there. (not all themes are like this)

    BTW i found a thread on this but it was old and it didn't tell u how to change it when u have a theme enabled.

    NOTE: if u want to change the "power off text" search for "slide to power off"
    You can also change almost any text (like the "enter passcode text.) just search for the text and change it. You can also change "low battery text"

    Don't go crazy on this because my friend did this and it worked, but then he did something with it on his own. and he messed up the texts on his iPod.

    So do this, and don't blame me if u do something stupid

    Are you sure you're in /System/Library not just /Library ?

    more problems, I found stringboard.strings. but it won't let me open it. It downloads it to my computer, If I try to open it, it uploads something into Cyberduck then does nothing
